Did you want to learn science from someone who just learned it yesterday? Well, welcome to episode 220 in which we do our best to understand multiverses, black holes and spaghettification (which we promise is a real term) all because Em researched the wrong topic. But as space lovers we were enthralled with the Back Door Theory, because honestly the idea of being torn apart atom by atom is just as scary as any cryptid. Em promises to bring you the Back Rooms Theory (also not the Back Woods...

Does this melodious voice sound familiar? Maybe even like it was cursed by a witch in order to achieve paranormal radio stardom? That's right, we have the one and only Terry Carnation from Dark Air as our first, best (and only) guest. He's known by many names and we've heard the moniker Rainn Wilson floating around too but we firmly believe that identity theft is real, so we're hoping the latter isn't a fraudulent imposter. Happy April Fools Day! Don't forget to store your souls (NOT sperm)...
