Episode 15: Mandela Malpractice
On this episode of The ClawCast, we discuss the Mandela Effect. What is it? Why do people believe it? Why is it named after Nelson Mandela? Did anyone watch the Golden Globes? A note: This one got messed up while recording, and kind of sounds like it was recorded inside of a vacuum cleaner. I did my best to clean it up while editing, but it's still rough. Sorry!

Seth, Ian, Patrick and Grace are back, and joined by Kelly Frasca to discuss whether weed should be legal, and if so, at what age?
