Ambrose Desmond took a trip to South Africa where he made a new friend who took him to Ecotopia, on a small island off the coast of Finland. Later, he meets a hermit who lives on an oasis in the New Mexico dessert. Ambrose also shared a story on the previous episode.

Anthony Holdsworth called the live show to share a true story about his very censored painting.

Anthony Holdsworth's "Oakland Global Warming # 2"
