This week's episode is about the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, Bill Watterson. About his life, how he came to make Calvin and Hobbes and also how he's a super cool guy, none of us knew anything about him but are dedicated fans now. Plus he's from Ohio! It's a super loose episode, not one for those who don't like dead end tangents and bad riffs!

"I didn't do it"... No he did. Dave finally relented and reported on the greatest TV show of all time. Hear how The Simpsons started from humble beginnings before quickly becoming a huge success, a show that would go on to be the longest running sitcom of all time. It's like David and Goliath, only this time David won! We talk about the key players, rifts behind the scenes and end with a lot of fun facts. Tute on Dave, Tute on!

This week we explore Scientology - specifically, the man who created it ; L. Ron Hubbard. He has got to be one of the most fascinating characters we have talked about! This episode also contains a lot of tension between Matt and Jess, but we assure you we are all still friends. Also in this episode - a lot of random tangents and a record number of The Simpsons references!

We ALL know that World War II ended in 1945, right guys? Well a bunch of Japanese soldiers stationed on remote, jungle filled islands didn't get the memo... This is the story of one of those soldiers, Hiroo Onoda, who kept fighting for DECADES. Dozens of search parties were sent to find him. Surrender orders, leaflets and letters from his family were dropped, but nothing would bring him out of the jungle. That was until a young hippy went looking for the man that most people thought was dead.

John Wilkes Booth, you know him as the handsome actor from a family of handsome actors, but did you know he has a dark past?

In 1914, explorer Ernest Shackleton and 28 men left England for his third trip to Antarctica. Sadly, they will never even make it to the continent. With their ship The Endurance crushed by the ice and with no hope of rescue, how the hell will they ever make it home? Dave tries to do this epic story justice with the longest report yet. There's something for everyone: Shaquille O'Neal, eggs and slugs.
