  2. J. Straw sits with Zacharay J. Ellis, the spaceman from The Adventures of the Silver Spaceman. They mull over former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer's recent statements that aliens exist and are among us, as well as discuss the theory that humans are descendants of aliens having sex with neanderthals... Which begs the question: what exactly is in that kool-aid? Shot by Joel Fernando. Created & Edited by Jessica Straw.

  4. Oh, hey, we totally forgot to tell you about ourselves in the first episode of Drinking The Kool-Aid (jeez, Glenn, quit hogging the spotlight)... so we present to you a minisode (copyright pending) where we talk about ourselves, tell you a little about how we first met , and our not-so-pure intentions for the show. We also cover topics such as how people in New York are always sizing each other up and why it's not good to feel like a glazed donut. Enjoy!
