The presidents have, by and large, all been sick, sick men. We're going to talk about exactly how sick as Dr. Sydnee and Justin explore presidential disease.

What waits for our heroes on the other side of the time-stuck barrier? Seriously, what could be in there? A dragon made out of time? A parallel universe where people eat time like snack chips? A genuinely kind of innocuous, rustic town? Whatever it is, one thing's for sure: There's about to be some trouble in that bubble. Merle does some successful evangelizing. Taako gets caught red-handed. Magnus rushes in!
Hey there Cool Kids! Thanks for joining us, we know this week has been tough. Of course, it wasn't all bad! We had the Tony's this passed Sunday. A fun Sex Study came out of FSU! E3 took place displaying new games and innovations in gaming technology. But we would be remiss if we didn't discuss the events in Orlando and how the nation has reacted in the after math. We talk about blood donations and the archaic restrictions donators still face. We also discuss Christina Grimmie, the performer gunned down in Orlando just a day earlier. Anderson Cooper called out the FL Attorney General on her apparent hypocrisy. There were some "Christian" ministers with not-so-Christian thoughts on the tragedy. Finally and surprising no one, Trump's reaction to the event was as horrible as you'd expect. There is good news in the form of the Wi-Five this Week! Thank you for joining us, we love you.
Tom brings the case against his friend Trinity. Trinity longs to be discovered and believes she was “born for the theater.” Despite her enthusiasm for theater and performing, she refuses to try community theater. He thinks she should get over her fear and go for it. Who's right? Who's wrong?
This week, with Expert Witness Andrew from Judge John Hodgman Episode 151: Sic Semper Dramatis!

NOTE #1: This is a live show, so forgive the audio issues. We tried to clean it up as best as we can, but we're not miracle workers.
NOTE #2: After we taped this episode, someone pointed out to us that Sleepaway Camp is a somewhat transphobic movie. We didn't know that when we taped, so bear
that in mind if you plan on checking it out.
