Episode 243: Elon Musk’s New “Innovation”

How many things has Elon invented now?

Trust Your Doctor is a complex beast. We record in an office so sparse and huge it’s comparable to the TARDIS itself. We even have a whole room just singularly dedicated to cotton candy. Like. It’s just walls and walls of cotton candy machines. That’s all that’s in there. This is a 100% true fact. It’s Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, written by Steve Thompson and aired on April 20, 2013.

That’s pretty smartly brah.

Arrrrrr mateys. This week we’re here for a special pirate themed episode of Trust Your Doctor, where we do absolutely none of the following: Neglect to bathe for a month, talk like a pirate in broken english, use strange pirate slang that fell out of use years ago, neglect to shave for years on end.
