In defense of Roger

Hi Shat On crew, Really glad I stumbled upon your podcast. New listener so apologies if I mixed up your names, if but I felt the need to defend King Bee’s E6 Deep Dive take that A. Will was wrong and B. Crawford is not a benevolent racist (let alone...

Shat inspired me

Hey guys, I was a little young when Lost was on the air. I watched it and I loved it, but I didn’t really understand that I could enrich my experience of the show by going on the internet and partaking in all the theorizing on forums or listening to...

Tin foil science, for shiggles

Hey guys, love your work, thanks so much. I know of course that Reflectatine (TM) (if that is the correct name) is not tin, or aluminum, foil, but physics has an ironic joke for us. Apparently, wearing foil headgear to protect oneself from government (or other) radio waves actually amplifies...
