    Oh he totally Shawshank’d it… he’s alive somewhere. Why would someone with Crohn’s disease go to a country who’s cuisine is best known for destroying bowels? … to fake a death!

    Anyone who doesn’t fondue is shady.

    Thank you both for a really interesting episode! A patient can absolutely die from a severe flare-up of Crohns disease, especially if the person doesn't get the right treatment or if he/she gets it too late.

    If Gerald was purposely money laundering, his shady clients on the other end of that laundry probably did him in if his DNA proves he’s actually in the grave. Otherwise, Brazil or somewhere without extradition. Interesting case. Netflix is doing a documentary in 2022.

    hey cap, I don't have anything to hide on my phone but it does prevent iDiots from stealing my phone. If i have a passlock on it, it's of no use to people. If there's no passlock then anyone can take it and erase everything and then use it. duh.

    A quarter trillion dollars is 250 Billion. Not that any of us really would know the difference between quarter trill and quarter bill lol. I love your guys show. Thanks for pointing out the Charly Project and letting us garage heads know about such a great project. I'm donating for sure. Thank you fellas for a great podcast. Cheers

    I have been to India multiple times, and his wife’s story is completely plausible. As a student, I spent 4 hours one day at a New Delhi post office trying to send a package: First you had to stand in line to have the package weighed, then you had to go hire someone on the street outside the building to wrap it in burlap, then there was another line to buy postage, then there was a fourth line to actually send the package. This all would have been fine if each line weren’t a mile long (literally) and circled by touts trying to get you to pay them to stand in the lines. Getting a body embalmed is completely out of place culturally in India, where most bodies are burned in the open on funeral pyres. The Captain is right that cremation would have been far easier and cheaper. I’m assuming, though, that the Canadian Embassy would have helped them cobble together a plan to get his body home, which would account for the odd set of outcomes and misspelled name. It also doesn’t surprise me that he lasted only 48 hours; the Indian interpretation of Swiss cheese fondue is not something I’d recommend to any traveler, much less one with Crones disease. I don’t blame his wife for spending a month getting over this before sorting out the $ billion business he stored on his laptop.
