This week's episode features a dig through an interesting article from the British Medical Journal with a proposed medical diagnosis for King George III--you know the one who was supposedly "mad". It turns out that while he was presiding over the monarchy during the American Revolution and issues with Napoleon, he may have been struggling with quite the unusual ailment. Mike and Max will explore this unusual case while Aaron abandons the show to go on vacation.
