This week, Shaun is joined by Kate Hayes of Bethlehem Burners for a fast-paced bout of some of the weirdest news of today AND yester…month! Have AI made the next step of their inevitable domination in becoming…annoying CEO types? Shaun thinks Lexus may have helped that happen with their newest ad campaign.

Kate debuts a never-before-heard segment on the show in which she unearths some oddball news we didn’t get to cover the first time around, and for the inaugural edition, she’s got a story fusing some of the show’s favorite elements: crime, justice, and a MASSIVE pile of animal phalluses! Find out what on EARTH one smuggler was up to in Weird News CLASSIC!

AND in Three for the Road…we’ve got truly terrible festival names, a gas thief singed by poetic justice, the dumbest bear attack of all time, and EVER so much more!
