Fourth of July Is a Lie

In this week’s special holiday visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick shared exciting news about a new book release, which is already being bootlegged on the streets of Shanghai for a nickel and a corn dog. We then talked about how the REAL independence day is July 2, 1776 and not the 4th.  We also discussed the Alabama Covid-19 contest, day drinking during lockdown, and hanging out with Jimi Hendrix.

Bubble Bees on LSD

Bill McCormick called in once again from the World News Center for an informative and entertaining chat about current events.  Topics included Warm & Fuzzy Japanese Robot Drone Bubble Bees, whether Molly or Prozac is better for depression, and sex, drugs & rock and roll.  Plus: Scarlet Johansson as Sailor Moon?

  • A timely discussion of Miami Vice and Phil Collins
  • Justice League director’s cut coming to the HBO
  • Tips on visiting a movie theater

Marijuana and Modern Leeches

During this weekly visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick and I discussed how weed will not cure COVID-19 (and neither will edibles and CBD), why using modern leeches is not a good idea, and why having Karen the hairstylist pull teeth is not a wise decision.  Plus: an important message about COVID-19 and small children.  Wash your hands, wear a mask, and practice social distancing.

World News Center: French Fry Grease Saves Lives

In a special visit from the World News Center (yes, a “very special” episode), Bill McCormick and I discussed how resin made from fast food grease trap renderings is now being used for 3-D printers at a fraction of the normal cost, with practical medical uses already underway.  Could a house be built out of french fry grease bricks?  Possibly.  Could your new car be old chicken nuggets?  Perhaps.  Can something previously known as a Filet-o-Fish be an important element in saving humanity?  You never know.

A Few Good News Stories (ish) from the World News Center

Bill McCormick from the World News Center called in to share some good news-ish stories coming out of the coronavirus outbreak, and then told us about COVID-19 scams, FDA vaccine approval, CRISPR, seed banks, and a “good news flu.”

The All-New DIY T2 Kit

In this week’s visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick shared some exciting news of a medical breakthrough that will make my experimental lung brush invention immediately obsolete.  We also discussed irresponsible coronavirus-related “hacks,” the return of high-tar smokes and asbestos, assembling your very own T2, and why I’ll probably never beat the computer again by the time Madden NFL ’28 comes out.

We Love Our Listeners

In this week’s visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick and I discuss content provided by our awesome loyal listeners, including many idiotic “cures” and “hacks” that are currently getting popular on social media.  Listen to learn about the dangers of microwave hard-boiled eggs, toaster-cooked grilled cheese sandwiches, frozen toothpaste, and a dangerous medical advice myth perpetuated by “Friends.”
