Sponsors: Thank you to the new show "THE SHIVERING TRUTH" - season two, premiering Sunday May 10 th at midnight. Only on Adult Swim. It starts with a quiver... a strange, incomprehensible thought grabs you. That thought, leads to a tremble... the tremble of preparing to act. The act, leads to a shudder... a shudder of deep regret. In the end, though, there is only truth. A truth which leaves you shivering with fear... or is it laughter? Is it all just a cosmic joke?  Watch and find out.  The Shivering Truth, Sunday May 10th 2020 @ Midnight on Adult Swim Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
