    In this episode Jon can't speak properly because he's been to the dentist. Naturally he decides to make an episode that requires him to accurately deliver Shakespeare. Over and over again. What could go wrong?

    There's a point in a friendship when you think you really know someone, that they can no longer surprise you, that the bounds of their creativity are established and you've got them figured out. Then you invite them on to a podcast and without warning they come out with the weirdest attempt at a solution since the Saxons tried using cow dung for disinfecting wounds.

    Belt up. Alan has a surprise for you.

    If you're sat at a computer, take a look at your hands. There they are, resting upon the keyboard, poised, waiting for their chance to give your next whim life. They know what they're doing, those hands. Don't they? Close your eyes, try and type something. How well do you actually know your keyboard?

    One thing is certain. You know it much better than these clowns.

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
