Every episode of Rabbit Hole, Chicago performers Erin and Tyler, along with a guest, start out on the same randomly-selected Wikipedia page. From there, they follow any link in the article that strikes their individual fancy, doing the same on the next page, and the next... Once they've climbed out of their respective Rabbit Holes, they meet and discuss all the interesting, weird, and exciting information they discovered. Armed only with curiosity and a dangerously shallow degree of knowledge about basically everything, they are ready to leap into... the Rabbit Hole.
