During this episode: 

Kevin and Jaime take a lighthearted look at weird and wacky laws in the United States as well as how some unexpected laws make mutual combat, and thus superheroes, legal.  The co hosts do a little extra digging into why these laws are on the books, as well as discussing mutual combat laws and the rise of Super Heroes around the U.S.

Their expertise in regards to legislation in the USA? Kevin may or may not have broken laws in 49 states. Jaime has been issued a speeding ticket or seven, regularly contacts her state legislators, and routinely votes.

Their qualifications to discuss the topic? Random life experience and caffeination during recording sessions.

Basically, anything they discuss? Don’t take their word for it - but they hope you enjoy the show!
