* David tortures the other journalists by singing Styx. He does not regret this in the slightest.

* We are visited by two surprise ghosts! Yay for ghosts. (There is a ghostly wager and a pretty sweet story. Moonmen.)

* We play pretty sweet music.

* David BB develops experimental organs

* we are awkwardly 13 years old again, and then Alex does a Bill Cosby impression

So listen to the show. YAAAR.
