Grab your prom champagne flukes, folks! This episode is otter nonsense! We've got How Did This Get Made host and The Dictator star Jason Mantzoukas sharing what it was like to improvise with Sacha Baron Cohen and hug Gandhi (Sir Ben Kingsley). We've also have a holy fantasy report from Jesse Thorn, with his roundup of Fantasy Deities. So if you're a British lady hurdler or a fan of Al Jazeera's lacrosse coverage you're gonna wanna check this episode out. Hotzi. Hit that!
Nice! Name-dropped REO Speedwagon in the first 6 minutes. My dad was in that band for 20 years (during the glory days), and just last week I sent him a link to your podcast, since I think he'll like it (he loves sports, music, and funny radio shows).
I really hope that Popeye scene finds its way onto the DVD for The Dictator, just hearing about it cracked me up.
I heard Rason and Jandy on the Madeliene Brand Show this week (KPCC represent!), and I was hoping they'd get to spend some time here talking about the CBC's 'alternate feed' for hockey games, as it sounded like a rich vein of comedy gold just waiting to be mined.
Maybe when we visit the County? Super-excited about that, by the way.
