| 0 comments

Are you sick of alternative facts? Good news! We have some "Amazing Facts" to share with you.

Who is the Antichrist? Which will end first: the world, or this lecture series?

Plus: Who knows the Bible better: Carrie or Ross? (It's Ross.)

Ross and Carrie Cure Cancer: Tijuana Edition

| 0 comments

It's 2017, and here in the States, our incoming president is considering having a guy lead the FDA who is opposed to testing drugs for efficacy before approving them like so much caramel candy. To see what such lax regulations might look like, Ross and Carrie board a bus to Tijuana with dozens of cancer patients and their families, to tour some of the "alternative" cancer treatments that Mexico offers... but the U.S. currently bans. Will these treatments be effective, but mired in bureaucratic red tape? Just plain snake oil? Or somewhere in between? Find out in this bummer-but-important episode.

Plus, Carrie accidentally eats a bug.

Ross And Carrie And Pastor Melissa Scott (Part 1): Enigmatic Evangelical Edition

| 0 comments

If you walked into the Faith Center in Glendale, California, or watched Pastor Melissa Scott on her 24/7 religious broadcasts, you would find a widow who took over her late husband's ministry, and who painstakingly parses tiny sections of scripture for sometimes hours at a time, surrounded by an eager, conservative Christian congregation. But what you might miss, if you don't look closely enough, is Pastor Melissa Scott: questionable Bible scholar, secretive profiteer, and former porn star. So, don't worry. Ross and Carrie looked very closely for you. And in this multi-part series, you'll be stunned by what they find.

Ross and Carrie Vape Essential Oils: MONQ Edition

| 0 comments

Sure, essential oils smell nice and cure clubfoot when applied topically (or so we’ve been told)… but what if you atomize the oils and pass their tiny molecules through your nasal passages? Ross and Carrie enlist the help of Jesse Thorn and Jordan Morris to see if vaping with the MONQ Therapeutic Air Device can make them healthy, vibrant, zen, happy, sleepy, and bashful.

Ross and Carrie Are Information: Dream Reality Cinema Edition

| 0 comments

We wish we could tell you exactly what we do in this episode, but we're not even sure. It all starts with us finding a coupon for "dream therapy," a treatment where you sit in a recliner in Beverly Hills and are put into a half-sleep state for an hour so that you can get all the benefits of meditation and dreaming, while a guy (or gal) says vaguely scientific things in your ear. What benefits, you ask? We're not sure. And they don't seem sure, either. But here's one thing we know: it costs $80.

Ross and Carrie Become Limitless: Nootropics Edition

| 0 comments

Ross and Carrie try to enhance their brain power through nootropics, supplements that allegedly improve cognitive function. They down Neuro drinks, take Alpha Brain pills, and swallow L-Theanine, resulting in some very interesting findings. Will their IQs and working memories improve? Or will Ross just have a heart attack in the middle of the show? No one can say. (RIP, Ross.)
