This week, Gabriel is away but Sarah and Zach are joined by none other than voiceover actor and writer Kristen DiMercurio, of Ars Paradoxica and Archive 81 fame. Kristen helps us tackle a pair of true-life tales. First, one of the silliest bad ideas we’ve had in a while, why a hippie community police force has a very specific agenda for Ann Arbor, MI. Then, one of the most objectively bad ideas we’ve had in a while, why tourists taking selfies on indigenous monuments means we can’t have nice things. Plus, Wes Anderson vibes, secret Instagrams, completely imagined crimes, and Ellen Degeneres: Gay Santa.
