After a terrible unplanned storm hit the area, one group didn’t make it to the next checkpoint, or the one after that, or the one after that… What happens next, is a wild ride. Listen in and find out!

First actual Space CASE of 2022! On this week’s episode, we honor the late great Betty White (who would’ve celebrated her 100th birthday next week) by cracking the case on what we think is one of the greatest ideas for a talk show in TV history. THE PET SET was a syndicated talk show created by Betty White and her husband Allen Ludden where celebrity guests would bring themselves AND their four legged friends to chat with Betty and learn about pet care and wildlife conservation. At one time, THE PET SET was considered lost media, but now, it has been found! We dive into some selected episode and talk about what made this show great.
