This show was a train wreck, but we made it through. We for real end Women's History Month the only way we know how - completely irreverently.

Kids are creepy. This week's episode looks at three stories where kids were extra creepy. There's also a weird Josef Fritzl tangent that I do not apologize for.

WOW! We made it 100 episodes of this dumb little show. To celebrate, I took every single liquor in my cabinet, mixed it together, and drank it extremely too fast. I'm not sure if this episode even makes sense, but here it is. Enjoy.

I get it - this entire show was built on people dying. But this episode is different, because these deaths weren't the result of war, serial killers, or anything relatively more ordinary. These deaths were...weird.

Can people just randomly burst into flames and die? Maybe it doesn't happen exactly like that, but this week we look at three stories where it seems like that's just what happened.
