Bob gets a hamster from a friend at school. Just one problem: he “forgets” to ask his parents. Then there’s the second problem: the hamster turns out to be an escape artist. AB, and his mom, discover this hamster’s Houdini-ness when Mom does laundry and grabs clothes out of AB’s closet. Rats! Oh wait, that’s later in the podcast.

Average Boy waits until the last minute to finish his semester-long science project and gets into hot lava! That’s because he has to make a working volcano, complete with molten mass.

There is no perfect podcast, but this one comes close. Actually, it doesn’t because only Jesus is perfect. Bob discovers how imperfect he is, especially with keeping his promises.
