Episode 81: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Haunted

This time around we join Idris Elba in canceling the apocalypse by recording this bad boy from 2 separate locations, a first for the show. We laugh, we cry (not really), and we tell some great goddamn listener stories, in defiance of nature and turducken, the story of which you'll have to listen to find out. Time slips, a protective spirit, shadow creatures and a whole lot more await.

Also on this episode: Brennan reports from quarantine, Ian's cat wants to become our third host, and we end up with a solid three minutes of outtakes.
