The heroic death of Mr. Peanut caused a bit of an earthquake. His selfless plunge to save his friends (Wesley Snipes and Matt Walsh) reverberated on social media last week. Some of us were shocked. Others laughed.

Planters will reportedly air Mr. Peanut’s funeral during the Super Bowl, though podcast co-host David Griner goes further to predictsa resurrection of the iconic mascot. Also on this week’s episode, breaking news reporter Katie Lundstrom joins us from Texas to talk about the Little Caesars and Doritos teasers.
