Welcome to the Jetpack Future

The New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft Company, now listed on the Australian stock exchange, is taking orders for the "world's first practical jetpack" and Jeff couldn't be more excited.  But at $200,000 and at its current size, Anthony wonders if practical is really the right word.  Also, the guys pitch their idea for Jetpack Rescue Squad and Anthony eats during the show, like a real professional.

Zen and the Art of Suicidal Maintenance

The mummified remains of a Buddist monk have been discovered inside a statue that dates back over 1,000 years.  Even more fascinating, studies reveal that the monk may have been self-mummified!  Jeff and Anthony learn the excruciating, lengthy procedure once used to begin the embalming process while still alive, and wonder how enlightened one must be to attempt it.

Gross Income (Live from Nerdmelt)

A very special 100th episode of We Have Concerns, recorded in front of a live audience at the Nerdmelt Showroom in Los Angeles!  Anthony and Jeff discuss the potential to sell your feces to science for use in treating patients with C diff.  Donors can earn up to $13,000 per year for their excrement, but the standards are quite high for what constitutes sellable poop.

Special thanks to Christian Spicer and Punchclub Sketch Comedy for inviting We Have Concerns to be a part of this live event, and Ryan Kolak for recording video.
