German immigrant John Jacob Astor was the first multimillionaire in the United States, and his descendants would go on to play prominent roles in the country's history -- but how exactly did he get this enormous fortune? According to the official story, he started off in the fur trade and later expanded into real estate. Yet for more than a century people rumors about the real origin of Astor's wealth have been floating around the fringes of conversation -- what if he wasn't a legitimate businessman in the beginning, but instead engaged in less savory endeavors?

For years, fast radio bursts have mystified astronomers across the planet. These millisecond-long blips of intense, unexplained radio signals pop up all over the sky, temporarily outshining radio pulsars despite being perhaps a million times farther away. Before 2013, many astrophysicists doubted that they even existed. Now their existence is undeniable — but what exactly are they?

The local authorities only discovered the elaborate series of tunnels under Danbury Road when the house above them was burning down. When brilliant and disturbed former hacker Daniel Beckwitt felt the collapse of civilization was imminent, he decided to make a plan, building a series of secret underground tunnels beneath his home in Maryland. As the construction continued, he employed various people to help dig out the structure, living beneath the ground for days at a time. Join the guys to learn more about this strange story about hackers, doomsday prepping, nuclear war, hidden tunnels, fire and what may arguably be murder.

On paper, the US government is a meritocracy. This means that, unlike older monarchical systems of government, state and federal positions are earned on the basis of individual talent, experience and skill, rather than being awarded as an entitlement due to a person's parentage. However, in practice, this doesn't always seem to be the case. Nepotism makes the world go 'round, and it seems even top US officials aren't immune to the siren call of unearned favoritism. While numerous critics have disparaged the practice, Presidents from the 1800s to the modern day tried (with varying success) to install their family members in positions of power -- and some people still wonder whether this is actually legal.

Kitkat was originally made by Roundtrees Roundtree was one of the British Quaker companies. Nestle has been gobbling up such companies. In the UK every year we seem to be having droughts. I wonder what Nestle has to do with this. Great podcast guys!

Can you tell me more about the "Varsity Blues Scandal"? How does someone cheat the SAT? When I took the SAT it was in a room full of students and several proctors watching for cheating. Do the wealthy have private SAT testing areas? How many young adults truly didn't get in because some of the 1% children took their place? Thanks!

Marley's Mutts do some incredible work with inmates. The numbers they have presented are crazy in terms of inmate upkeep.

Yup. He's...well you know...Chief Executive of a whole branch of government. In fact he could hire or fire anyone in that branch.
