I mean, the title is pretty self-explanatory, but I'm guessing since you're still reading - that you need a bit more. Well, the short version is the government replaced every living bird in the US with a drone. And they're ALL spying on us. What do you do if you have a pet bird? If they're all fake, what exactly is an egg? And, perhaps, most importantly - is the apostrophe in "Birds Aren't Real" necessary? We investigate this avian enigma this week. Plus, a certain someone makes his triumphant return to the show (and is subsequently never welcome back), the fellas are recording in the same room for the first time in 18+ months (you'd think it'd be better), and inane Simpsons references are back (see above). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t sure if birds are real, but idiot robots? We’ve got that covered - Hysteria 51.
