Ben Blacker twitter: @BenBlacker and Ben Acker twitter: @BNACKER, creators of The Thrilling Adventure Hour are on the show this week and, they are serious media dorks. They have lists and lists of movies and books and comic books and music in their heads. We could have kept going for another hour. And again, I’m a dork FOR the guests… so much so that we talked about LAST episode, so I’m still dorking out to Marcia Wallace.


Regarding audio: I didn't check the levels right - and Pat Brady (not Grady - there's a fascinating tale of ..zzzzz) did amazin work - so hopefully all things can be heard.
