Load up your t-shirt canon and get your bowling balls ready, because this episode is coming at you like a flying monkey drunk on white russians. This week, we’re mashing up the Broadway smash hit Wicked with the Coens cult classic The Big Lebowski. Check us out on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher for a conversation about unicorns cakes and salads, letting your heart jump out of your mouth, and the true loneliness of Real Life Sam Elliott.
