This week Eric and Matt honor the loss and legacy of the Purple One, Throwback to a 1986 comedy classic, channel some Michael Scott, and dig deep into the creatively fearless and mystifying new film Midnight Special. So hop on board for the ride…like a train…like the Midnight Special…that you board…at the station…with a ticket…and your luggage….I’ll show myself out…
The boys review the week in entertainment including a recap of an “educational” week of stand-up comedy, missed Springsteen, Record Store Day, and a little Star Wars (naturally).
