In the first half, cyber technology expert Charles R. Smith offered analysis of threats from North Korea, and reports about security flaws, hacks, and viruses.
In the latter half, an 11th generation Creole New Orleanian, Bloody Mary, made her debut on the show, discussing the rich history of voodoo and the paranormal that permeates the culture of New Orleans, and her interactions with the spirit realm.
Jan Irvin sent in a set of images to accompany his 12/28/11 appearance. He writes of this image: "Amanita is the mushroom of the fairy tales, the mushroom of the elves and gnomes and dwarves. And of course Santa Claus has elves – Santa is an Elf. Santa is also the mushroom, shown here with his red and white garb and black boots – just like the mushroom."
