Share This Episode
Can comparing one’s weight to that of a duck determine if someone is a witch? Probably not, but the logic of Monty Python sure seems sound.

Join hosts Shanti and Danny as they talk about logic leaps, Wayfair, and lunacy as they break down this conspiracy to its roots and see what’s really there.
