Dave reports on the often requested and super mysterious 'Tamam Shud' case. In 1948 a body is discovered on on Adelaide's Somerton beach. No one is sure who he is and things get weirder when they find a coded message, a phone number, a small piece of paper and a suitcase. Who was The Somerton Man?

This sounds like a silly topic, but it's pretty dark. It includes drugs, guns, murder, court room dramas and a bit of ice cream, I guess. CHECK IT OUT!

Dave reports on how Coca-Cola, a medicinal drink invented by morphine addicted pharmacist John Pemberton, went on to become the world's largest soft drink empire. Coke made all the right moves through the early Twentieth Century, growing in popularity through both of the World Wars until the 1970s when a large competitor appeared... Enter "The Cola Wars". This super fun episode was recorded live at The Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Our first ever LIVE EPISODE! Recorded at the Imperial Hotel as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Bop had the big task of delivering the first ever live report AND dealing with our first ever time limit! What a task! We talked about The Kray Twins - the scariest British mobsters of the '60s! Jess' life was made complete when the audience said her catchphrase,  Dave broke Jess with his facial expressions and Matt ended up sitting in the audience and leading a revolution.

Mutiny on the Bounty! A tale of drama and treachery on the high seas... many people know it on some level, as there have been FIVE feature films made about the story, but none since the 80s, so it's time for a refresher course. This story includes: boating, flogging, boning, blood letting and lush tropical islands!

"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.

This week, we dip into the Golden Hat once again and explore the legend of the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Was she one of the good guys? Was she a bad guy? Did she possess powers, or was she just confident? All that as well as the usual amount of shit talk.

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? That's right, the heart throb you keep a poster of on your wall is a COLD BLOODED PRESIDENT KILLER. He killed Abraham Lincoln, yes, THAT Abraham Lincoln: the star of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and his auto-biographical film Lincoln. 

Join Jess and Dave in class as Matt talks about some of these things and MORE!

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.

Dave reports on the most famous UFO incident of the 20th Century. But did aliens really crash land in the New Mexico desert? And did the US Government really try and cover it up? Whilst trying to answer these questions, Dave introduces a weird new character, Matt wants to party with a 'ufologist' named Stanton 'Fried-man' and Jess does not want to give a confession.

Dave reports on the many marriages of King Henry VIII, a man so determined to have a son that he literally changes his whole country's religion to allow him to remarry. Some wives will be divorced and shunned; others will not be as lucky and lose their heads. So does he ever get a son? And if not, it's not like his daughters could ever become Queen... or could they?

This is one of the stranger chapters in Australia's military history. Matt talks about the time the army took on the second tallest bird in the world, the emu. 20,000 of them. It was quite a fight... but who wins?

William Shakespeare - sure we're taught that he wrote some famous plays and poetry, but did he really write them? Do we know what he looked like, and how many words did he create out of thin air (thin air is one of the phrases he coined)? Dave will try and answer these questions, Jess's cough has now become a husky laugh and Matt will do some accents - some he has control of, others not so much.
