Episode 36: Don’t Tell Mom the Sherpa’s Dead!

Episode Notes

It’s ever more WEIRD news as Dave, Phil, and Shaun drag a back-pages story into the glaring light of (basement) truth! This week, a PR stunt by a less-than-pristine company leads to buried cryptocurrency treasure, a daring mountain-top rescue, and a freshly mummified native guide. The boys talk bizarre PR history, the ethics of risking it all, and the burgeoning adventure-industrial complex!

PLUS…Dave takes free agency to task and spares no feelings as he rails against the dying of the NBA’s esprit de corps!

AND…this episode’s Three for the Road features UGLY statues, BEAUTIFUL baby planets, and an UPDATE on the mysterious case of the Lehigh Valley EXPLOSIONS!
