Factual Errors

We all make mistakes. Even Podcast Djs! So here you'll find things said, explained, or referenced that were incorrect! We apologize profusely for our human shortcomings and offer ourselves to the volcano gods as human sacrifices.

1) Error #1: This is more of an amendment to a statement made by Jewels. Her grandmother did not wear black because of the Black Shirts (Mussolini).

2) Error #2: Pete says Phil Collins - Land of Confusion during his honorable mention. It was actually by the band Genesis (which Phil Collins was in) who performed Land of Confusion.
