025 — On the Brink (w/ Jeb Lund & Rocky Swift)

A rip-roaring return to form after a month-and-a-half hiatus. This episode, I’m getting down to business and discussing Ben Stein’s finanical thriller “On The Brink” with returning guest Jeb Lund and first-timer Rocky Swift. We dissect the politics and amazingly weird writing of America’s favorite Boring Teacher From the Movies, and struggle to understand why anybody would write a ‘suspense’ novel about creeping inflation. Things even get a little educational. But then we talk about dicks.

NOTE: Jeb wanted to apologize for fucking up the OPEC Crisis and Postal Strike chronology during the Nixon Administration. It probably doesn’t matter, because Ben Stein has all this stuff happen at once, but you don’t need to write in with corrections. He knows he’s wrong, and he’s sorry.


None this episode.
