Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy, the famous fictional anchorman from the comedy classic Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast via iHeartRadio.

The comedic series has already been picked up for two twelve-episode seasons, and each episode on the podcast has a different theme in which Ron Burgundy engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic. However, in signature Ron Burgundy fashion, the conversations go overboard with a comedic twist, as we find out things about people we never knew, or if they are in fact true overall.

For last week’s episode, the theme revolved around true crimes, as Ron Burgundy tackled on notable murder cases with special guest forensic psychologist Dr. Scott Musgrove, and in particular, the infamous Zodiac Killer. In the podcast, Ron believed he discovered the Zodiac Killer’s true identity, based on an internet rumor.

He explained, “Interesting background for the Zodiac Killer, he was raised in Houston, Texas and he actually attended Princeton and then Harvard Law. Pretty impressive,” Ron said. “He worked in the White House for George W. Bush, was instrumental in the 2000 Florida Presidential recount and is now working as a Senator in Texas. Born Raphael Edward Cruz, he changed his name to appear more American and is now called Ted Cruz. And he’s doing quite well for himself. His wife just revealed that they cannot afford a second home, but to suffer is to be human. So that just goes to show, it doesn’t matter how many people you kill in San Francisco, you’ll be just fine.”
