Voice actress and professional Erin Sprague joins us for the twisty windy rabbit hole of murder, complicity and internet audio protocols, all based off the troubadour of truth, Weird Al Yankovic.
Our tallest guest Asher Perlman joins us to talk about an English Striker, and finally gets to talk about what he's always wanted to, the bureaucratic lists of film organizations. Tyler stumbles along the edge of ignorance as he broaches Deaf culture, and Erin discovers a little bit about the motion pictures of the 1600s.
Our friends from New York, Darla and Mikela Horn-Bjork, joined us to discuss continental boundaries, Arab Springs, Chinese birth regulations, and neoliberalism.
Writer and actor Sarah Ashley joined us for a formatting experiment born of a clerical error. Three different starting links! Learn of the majesty of Britain's oldest road, the disgusting science of a Canadian cartoon, and the origin story of the doughnut. Yum yum, experiments!
Jon Matteson earns the affection of our dog while we discuss Ellis, Wisconsin and its obvious related topics: African trade languages, the juris prudence of international waters and medical relief, and gerrymandering.
Tyler and Erin record a post-script in which Tyler tells Erin about his own rabbit hole adventure that NSG-7 led him down, specifically towards Chinese Alchemy.
Erin has a one-on-one with our friend and inspiration Irene Marquette while Tyler works some dumb job. A spiral galaxy leads them on their own spiral into mythology, history and the preservation and interpretation of both.
The fanciest crone human Sarah Hoffman sat on our couch and engaged our brains while we used a Canadian voice-over actor to learn about female bodybuilding, adrenaline, and Louis Wolfson, inventor of the modern hostile take-over.
Content warning: This episode has discussion of sex work and gender identity. And cursing.

Sean Ellis sticks up for the losing side of history as we use a 1991 rock album to leap into the lost legacies of Mesoamerica, the moral bankruptcy of televangelists, and the messy evolution of MTV.

Phil Meister kicks off into the deep end of the Rabbit Hole with us, using the 2012 indie rom com Gayby to lead us to ascetic sufis, ukrainian folk musicians and the Emperor of Ethiopia. Along the way, a rapping hot dog.
Musician, comedian and soon-to-be Angeleno Brian Biancardi joins us in a Rabbit Hole that starts with a lauded botanist and ends in scrunchy tiny ancient mammals, a song of the north wind, and the feminine divine.
