We made it to episode 100 and to celebrate Dave reports on Russia's 'Mad Monk' Grigori Rasputin. A simple peasant that would use his sex appeal, charisma and supposed supernatural powers to become one of the most powerful advisors to the Russian royal family. What could possibly go wrong? Recorded live in Melbourne, Matt zones out, Jess finds the audience's limit and Dave humps and head butts a watermelon live on stage. Yep, this one has it all.

We dip into the Golden Hat this week and talk about a New Zealander who was awarded the Victoria Cross not once, but TWICE! This guy might just be the baddest ass of all the badasses we have talked about! Plus a lot of the usual silliness with Matt being very hyper and weird and Jess laughing for a solid minute because of a meme.

Over the weekend both Jess and Dave turned 27, so what better way to celebrate than to talk about 'The Forever 27 Club.' On this episode Dave, Matt and Jess all report on someone who died at the age of 27, including Brian Jones from The Rolling Stones, Richey Edwards from The Manic Street Preachers and Amy Winehouse. Now let's hope neither Jess or Dave join the club...

This super fun episode was recorded live at The Chippo Hotel in Sydney.

In 2003, Erie Pennsylvania was struck by one of the strangest crimes in history. A pizza delivery driver named Brian Douglas Wells walked into a bank with a bomb strapped to his neck. When he was arrested minutes later he claimed he had been forced to wear the bomb and complete an array of tasks. Sadly the bomb would explode before he could give them any more information. The intriguing story of the pizza bomber has it all... murder, cheese, butter and a poo room.

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!
