The gang talks about how insulting the word “skits” is and then Tig, who’s been frugal with the stories lately, let’s us in on a big one concerning her and her mammal friend (girlfriend). Then Eric Kane, a Scientist and avid PB listener, calls in and explains viruses and their myriad mysteries. They discuss if viruses can have anything resembling a soul, how closely does human behavior parallel virus behavior, and if their is such a thing as a good news virus.
