This week, your hosts discuss last week, more specifically, the Don't Panic Radio Show live birthday show.  Steve and Paul also review MP Cavalier's single "The Blue Girl," Steve attempts his Transcontinental Railroad/smart phone analogy once again.  How do editing mishaps make the show better?  What the hell is a Luddibomber?  And what's going on with Pateron? 

 
In the second half of the show, Paul tells the story behind the story of his mom phoning in on last week's recording, Steve tries to "get" comics, which turns into Dr. Manhattan vs. the Starchild, and a second attempt at the new segment, #whatsonthepage.
 
All this nonsense and much more.​

From Peter Frampton, to Humble Pie, to Pi Day, don't ask us how this show happens.  Like Killdozer, it goes where it wants to.  From Stephen Hawking's Brief History of Time, to Paul's brief history of God, this one has it all.  Also this week, Steve discusses his family's pilgrimage from Alabama, to Michigan.  Well almost Michigan, anyway.  The baton has been passed; Paul introduced his son to Pootie Tang, Steve wants to know why there are never any ghosts on the news, and Irresponsible Headline Interpretations are back once again.  Rounding out this episode, smoking the Bible, the work ethic of kids today, and Black Lighting!
