Poison Boy commiserates over the loss of David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Bob Denver and Meadowlark Lemon. I don’t know how he does it, but our intrepid leader manages to drag himself out of the depths of depression to interview the incomparable Steve Walsh about cell phone radiation risks and the boys reminisce over their favorite Bowie stories. Then Poison Boy dives back into This Week in Toxicology and recounts all the weird and fascinating events that have happened during the first 2 weeks of the year – we cover everything from the publication of Frankenstein to Pepe LePew and Pappy Boyington to elephant electrocutions to the recent methane leak in Los Angeles. We leave no stone unturned to explore the events that made the first 2 weeks of the year memorable. Ahhhh Wham Bam Thank You Maam!
