Guy Moves to America. Guy plows a field. Guy finds a Runestone from his ancestral land rewriting history as we know. Yup, that old chestnut. But not so fast… Could it be a fake? That is what Darrell Montgomery helps us figure out as he stops by the show once again to take a crack at this Scandinavian legend. Plus, CBot tried to figure out respect (It goes about how you think it will) and Brent share his affinity for grassy knolls. All that and more on the podcast that doesn’t need a runestone to tell us about the past, we have a robot that swears he was there – Hysteria 51
