Episode 288 of The Reality Check is a prime example of why podcasting was invented. Elan leads off the show with an exploration into the claim that Andy Kaufman is still alive. Next, Adam answers whether or not there is a conspiracy by fishermen that has led to many people eating fish on Fridays. Pat closes out the show with a segment on a factual misrepresentation in ads for Sheri’s Berries.
