This week we break down earthquakes. We are overdue for the 'big one' here in California but we look at earthquakes all over the world, fault lines, fracking, building codes, and how you can prepare for what to do during and after. Plus, a few historic quakes in China, Indonesia, and of course the famous San Francisco quake. Then we look at something else shaky; Donald Trump Jr. We explore the early life of Trump's eldest child, what kind of business troubles he has had, his family life, his tweets and our overall disdain. Then we ruin your brunch with a quick tale of dreaded 'avocado hand' and tell you how snakes will kill you from the afterlife.

Is your money safe? We dig deep into the financial regulatory system; Federal Reserve, FOMC, US Department of Treasury, SEC and how we got into the mess that was the 2008 financial crisis. What's the history of regulations post Great Depression and how the government is putting it at jeopardy again today. Are we ready for the next crash? Then we scare you straight about cocaine that's being laced with Fentanyl. What Fentanyl is, where it came from, how deadily it can be and what the DEA is trying to do to keep up. Then, is a pig going to chase you home from a bar? And finally, a journalist fakes his death to get away from Russian forces.

Cold off the press! We dive into ICE; not the rapper but rather Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Learn about the history of the agency, what they're supposed to do as part of our government and some huge mistakes they've been making in violation of human rights and our tax dollars. Then we cover El Salvador; the smallest and mostly densely populated country in South America once called the murder capital of the world. We explore the country's background, economy and gang violence. On a lighter note, Kansas finally passed a law about cops not having sex on the job and a snake has invaded a favorite watering hole.

Comedian and writer Joshua Mann sits down with us to talk smack on Fox News! We explore how the channel got it's start, why it leans so far right and what the possible implications are to our society.

Plus, the New York Times article that many people taking anti-depressants are unable to quit, poop implants to treat IBS and other illness through others' poop in your butt, a dad joke gone totally wrong in Nevada, and a bill in Louisiana to criminalize sex with animals.
