Notes

During the second hour, Ghost got a call from a Skype caller named "Adolf Ghostler." After he called in with a splice, the chatroom spammed Ghostler and called him that for the rest of the episode. Ghost never lived it down, as Ghostler became a popular trolling method for the rest of the 2012 run of True Capitalist Radio.

Interestingly, during Radio Graffiti, after the prank call to Howard Stern was played, the show ended exactly after three hours, due to a sudden change to Blog Talk Radio that prohibited the shows going over hours. It was quickly rescinded, and Ghost had post-show privileges the next episode.

Furthermore, after the show ended, Ghost took a week off due to the events of Troll War III.
