In Episode 12, “Who do you trust?”, Ham & Chuck talk politics, news, confidants and cynics. Sounds a little dry, actually, but in the the process we cover animals in office, the threat of deadly force against people or spiders or possibly both (and did we mention the kid hiding in the closet?), vacations versus a horrible premature death, NBC News and their groundbreaking coverage of what we already knew, one of the greatest fictional works of all time (on Facebook) and Krispy Kreme donuts. Not so dry now, is it?
