Join hosts Katelyn and Mathew on a wild ride through Wiki-space! Each week they play the Wikipedia game with a new topic as their target, discussing what they find along the way.
Dean Schmeltz joins us to hunt down a not-very-good theory from the world of Linguistics. We talk ginger snaps, "proper" enunciation, the show Leverage, stealing from craft services... oh, and the whole show is filmed during 4:20. Wrap your head around that.
In honor of Star Trek's 50th anniversary, we abandon Wiki-space and chart the undiscovered country that is Memory Alpha. We boldly go with our guest, John Mills, in search of little furry creatures that may or may not be edible.
Katelyn's here to rank the Kongs and to think of an anime that starts with the letter 'G'. Mat's just here to smoke butts and get mad when Katelyn opens Metacritic.
Johannes (@jmyrharkins) hooks us up with a topic. Then we talk about Tiny Zoos and Halo novelizations. Do we get to cat anatomy? Do we waste time discussing whether or not Mad Max is sci-fi? There's only one way to find out... (it's listening, listening is the way).
It's @JadeEggg with the suggestion this week that sends your hosts off in search of (1) tickets to the movie that will definitely justify Miles Teller's fame (2) a David Beckham to punch (3) and bootleg Adidas gear. Plus—still more evidence of a sad, desperate conspiracy amongst frisbee people to infect Wikipedia with their propaganda.
On what might as well be an episode of CYGTT: Nights (now 90% spookier), Mat and Katelyn take on Big Podcast and tackle this mysterious topic from Miles Fowler (@planeswalkerxvx). Katelyn shares her new idea on how to settle draws in soccer. Mat reminisces on his time in Model UN. Marc Maron shares his thoughts on dying under suspicious, perhaps yeti-related circumstances on a Russian mountain.
This week we're joined by Griffin Newman, who you can watch in Amazon's pilot for The Tick on August 19th! We try to use everything at our disposal—Australian movies, Star Trek-style diplomacy, and maybe Whoopi Goldberg—to get to our topic.

This week we're practically praying FOR a sports stub as our jumping-off point. Mat's going full (terrible) Brit to honour the lads of Arsenal, and Katelyn slips into it a bit as she recounts her Nando's experience. We also test Katelyn's memory vis-à-vis what topics we've covered over the last year.
Special thanks to AJ Fillari for this episode's topic!
Mat shares what he learned about New Mexico by watching the DNC. Katelyn prepares for a legendary trip in search of some Raucous Nandos. Both marvel at the wonders of CGI that make every ocean movie possible. Shout out to our bud Cody for this week's topic.
We take on another difficult topic suggested by Brian Click—this week it's Stanley Green, the Protein Man. SPOILER ALERT: We get pretty stuck and start talking about drug subscription boxes and the opposite of 69-ing instead of doing anything productive. Our bad.
Katelyn and Mat discuss Pokémon GO, talk about teeth trauma, and determine who the Canadian Patrick Swayze is. All this and more while Mat keeps checking his phone to rack up more stupid Pokéballs.
