Our old pal John Bassett joins us in the new studio for a special (*cough* Mitcz's b-da *cough) riffin episode. Teddy brings the heat in the first few minutes after a meme gets out of hand, we discuss the spread of political correctness in another meme, there's some discussion of our childhoods, sports, old jobs, and more. A spontaneous game is created when Mitcz tries to name one president for every Star Wars character he can name, and he finally dominates a home-spun Riffin Game. Teddy still wins Google Feud, though.
Our first 4-person riff, this episode goes to AMAZING depths of Hollywood culture, with Erika Alexander (of The Cosby Show and Living Single) and her husband Tony Puryear (screenwriter for Eraser, artist for Concrete Park). From discussions of so-called "black hollywood", to double standards, to the history of various cultural milestones, and all sorts of riffin' in between. It's eye-opening, entertaining, and funny as hell.
Episode 1 is in the bag! We had our good friend Teddy Tutson on and... man, that dude ran circles around us in the smartness department. Such fascinating discussion, much silliness ensued, but all in all - a great first episode. We had a minor internet hiccup during the broadcast, so the video is split into two parts (the audio, however, is one consolidated file)
