This week, Arden and Will bring you more outrageous (and actually factual) news! They share an update on the latest death in Fenn's treasure hunt, and discuss their future job as a security guard for the next Holy Grail. You'll also learn about MK Ultra, the CIA conspiracy that turned out to be true, and the (maybe) idiot who bought a Disneyland map that you probably can't afford.
