Kaitlin, a YouTube star who loves pop culture,  proudly says she is from Dayton, the home of the Wright Brothers. She gives some questionable stats about Dayton’s population and the number of kids who disappear here annually.   

At the end of the “Stranger Things” like episode, “Lil’ Choices,”  Aukerman and Mantzoukas are all about visiting Kaitlin’s version of Dayton. 

“I would love to go to Dayton,” Aukerman said.
