This is a heated Riffin here, kids. Justin Rupple returns to regale us of his tales as an actor chef for a commercial, which somehow briefly touches on the Manti Te'o scandal, thereby leading us down a heated debate road of the media, the world, the psychology of the brain, and a number of uncomfortable moments. We round it out on happier subjects, including the discussion of the open-letter proposal for a McWorld.
Vinay Chand comes out to riff along with us when the discussions get fast and loose about Indian culture, racism, Obama, Twitter, Tumblr and a lot of social media madness. Mitcz spends the last chunk of the episode bitching about CBS, and Teddy and Vinay attempt to explain network TV to Mitcz.
Erik MacArthur came in skeptical, and left as a fan, as we delved deep into old Nickelodeon and his role on Salute Your Shorts, his upbringing in Hawaii, young Hollywood, his recent directorial efforts, his lessons from the past, and we end with a lengthy discussion about the first human trip to Mars as a reality show. You don't wanna miss this window into awesomeness.
An epically nerdtastic, semi-creepy episode of Straight Riffin awaits you within! Marvel at the in-depth discussions of the future of media consumption and Mitcz's hair-brained plan to save the world. Gasp as comedians describe the ongoing self-doubt of being onstage. Scream your head off during the last half, where we discuss the creepiest possible thing to uncover in an apartment - a TRUE story! All this and more.... you're gonna love it.
