This episode we get into it about drug catapults on the border, meatloaf escapades with your boy Chris Cristy, more stuff on narcs, more dumb Nazis, and a fancy boy alligator. We also ramble on about what it means to be a grandpa and how dumb the War on Drugs is (it's real dumb). Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art.
