Ross and Carrie sit down with Nick Little, Vice President and General Counsel for the Center for Inquiry, to talk about the organization's legal maneuvers and strategic campaigns, including their recent lawsuit against retail giants CVS and Walmart for selling homeopathy as medicine. Nick tells us why stores should care more about separating medicine from unproven treatments, and gives us a peek into the process of fighting for a more informed public.

Ross and Carrie cough up too much money to attend a one-night dinner inspired by the famous Source Family, a hippie-spiritual commune headed by Jim Baker, who owned one of the first health food restaurants in the country, on LA's Sunset Strip. The group functionally dissolved after the death of Baker (AKA Father Yod) in 1975, but a 2012 documentary brought its memory back to life. Now, local vegan restaurant Café Gratitude, which claims inspiration from The Source Family, hosts its own event, honoring Father Yod and his followers... some of whom attend. Plus, we learn all about Café Gratitude's unofficial connection to the "personal growth" corporation Landmark International, and find out who Father Yod wouldn't vote for in 2020.

Ross and Carrie continue their newfound tradition of going to a psychic to get personalized predictions for the upcoming year. After being wowed by the very dapper and mysterious Richard-Lael Lillard, also known as "The Gentleman Psychic," they make an evening appointment to visit his Victorian estate for readings and hot tea. The extremely elegant and singularly entertaining Lillard breaks out his tarot deck and offers his prognostications on everything from the upcoming presidential election, to Carrie's love life and friendships, to some dicey news for the Blocher family.
