Dan went missing this week, so rather than send out a search party, Razzle recruited Zane Grant (Mystic Party Podcast) to fill in as guest host.

In today's episode, they guys talk about how O.J. Simpson almost played the Terminator, why you can't find any pepperoni in Italy, why Volkswagen might be the secret Illuminati of luxury cars, and much more.
