Winter is Comed! To Minneapolis, anyway. We made you this very special Halloween edition of What Did You Look Up on Wikipedia? featuring Hodor and Bran from Game of Thrones, candy corn, Kristin’s unidentifiable accent and a special audio appearance by the Minneapolis police.

Episode 3 is live! There’s a lot we couldn’t fit into this episode, including a meditation on “What Would Amanda Bynes Do?”, but, you know, once we started talking about Naked Walt Whitman it was hard to stop. So here are some footnotes for the episode, in no particular order:
-Andre the Giant was 7’4″, and Kristian Nairn, the guy who plays Hodor on GoT, is only 6’10” – a wimp in giant country.
-There’s no entry for “fluffy cows” on Wikipedia – YET – so we relied on the Wall Street Journal for our research.
-Darque Tan is a tanning chain in Minneapolis. Its name is preposterous. We are inviting you to help us figure out the proper pronunciation!
-Isn’t it so cool that Samuel Beckett the Playwright drove Andre the Giant to school?! Also did you hear us throw down that rhyme?!
