We wish we could tell you this week's topic is some weird cryptid or a yet to be discussed alien species. Unfortunately, it's something much worse (and Canadian!) "Butterbox Babies" is a reference to the size of the boxes a deranged Canadian couple used to bury 100s of babies across 3 decades in the early 20th century. How did this couple get away with it? Did the entire town turn a blind eye? If an American couple buys a baby in Canada, what's the exchange rate? We ask the tough questions this week as we examine The Butterbox Babies. Plus, Kyle still thinks he lives in Star Trek (TNG to be precise). Conspiracy Bot is apparently a fan of the show Earth 2 (and Antonio Sabàto Jr.), and the fellas discuss Canadian foods (ketchup chips anyone?). All of that and more on the podcast that had never heard of Butterbox Babies, but assumed it was someone’s nickname in high-school - Hysteria 51.
