- DB Cooper Case Gets New Life From Scientists
Since he was a teen, Alex Kirry has always been fascinated by the case of DB Cooper who hijacked a plane and vanished with loads of money from the back of a Boeing 727 back in 1971. The FBI may have closed the case on it last year but some scientists have found new life in the case. Could he have been an old Boeing employee? Ethan Millard ruins it all by just saying that he died and that's the end of it like the party pooper he is. Man missing after being gone on Hunting trip in Alabama is found by police, in their own jail after he was publicly intoxicated.

- The Dark Humor Of First Responders
We start off with a story from the Pleasant Grove, Utah Fire Department. They have a dog for the firefighters to hang out with. It's a cool dog, but they named it Arson. Then we started wondering if we'd see a Highway Patrol dog named Drunk Driver or an FBI dog named Serial Killer. We decided to just let them name dogs as they with, their jobs are hard enough. We also mentioned the Boeing 747 again. We talked in an earlier episode about United Airlines phasing them out early, and we were startled today to see a cargo 747 from Turkey had crashed in a village in Kyrgyzstan. The plane was flying in from Hong Kong. The plane was owned by ACT Airlines operating as MyCargo
- Apple Air Pods: Perfect For Disaster Zones
Alex Kirry came to this episode with a football complaint: His son has declared he is no longer a Seattle Seahawks fan or a Dallas Cowboys fan. This might be the worst NFL postseason Alex has ever had. We then move on to a more lively conversation about the new Apple Air Pods. They should have named them Air Buds. Alex loves their new commercial but Ethan Millard is too old to be impressed by tv commercials. Watch for a new Disney Air Buds show where the golden retrievers travel back in time and defeat a team of Hitlers. Also, disaster relief orgs are complaining that Australians are clogging their relief efforts with worthless junk like high heels and chain saws.

- Let's Actually Celebrate Martin Luther King Day
Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard are trying to figure out how we can actually celebrate Martin Luther King Day because Alex's kids' school were quick to send out an email about NO School on Monday but were also not really good at mentioning why they have it off. Columbus Day needs to be renamed and Martin Luther King Day needs something extra.

- Friday the 13th Superstitions
Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard talk about how hilarious it is that other countries freak out about way more superstitious things than our petty Friday the 13th fears. What European and South American countries freak out about with cold air, Tuesday the 13th and other crazy superstitions.

- United Airlines Says Goodbye to the Boeing 747
Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard today join in solemn sadness over the announcement that the Boeing 747 will no longer be used by United Airlines. While still operated by President as Air Force One, the Primary operators of the 747 are foreign ailine companies. Qatar Airlines does one of the most crazy flight giveaways in airplane history that we didn't find out about until it was all over. Also, the places they were flying weren't exactly where the guys ever really wanted to travel.
- Taco Bell Knows NO Limit on Taco Creativity
Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard discuss how Taco Bell's newest creation the Naked Chicken Taco is sweeping the nation. The Taco Shell is a piece of fried chick and we aren't sure if we should be disgusted or thrilled. A little of both. The Chicken taco shell will release later this month, but we love the imagination at least. Dip it in chocolate and then we will be impressed. Alex celebrates his wife's birthday by trying to decide between a wifi connected security system and a smart tv for them to watch before going to bed.

We kicked off this episode by honoring another hero dad for the creative way he's raising his children.

You do a workout and get free food. Not worth it.
- Bunny Suit+ Airhorn= Arrested
Donald Trump's team has promised "soft sensuality" at his inauguration. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform. I'm sure that's where it will come from. The Japanese Broad Tape Worm has infected wild salmon caught in Alaska. Any salmon caught along North America's Pacific coast may be contaminated. Also, there's been a Twinkie recall... Tragedy. Plus the guy who was arrested for blowing his airhorn in a police station. He was dressed in a bunny suit.
