Skid Maher from the Glass Cannon podcast stops by to talk about an "American Woman", and what it would sound like if a bunch of Canadian guys told her to get away from them. Along the way we discuss nerd culture, war machines, Jack Benny, the theremin, and if passive-aggressively dissing a woman is such a good idea when you're having trouble seeing colored lights.
Check out Skid Maher on the highly entertaining Dungeons & Dragons podcast "The Glass Cannon". The show is great addictive fun, whether you play the game of Dungeons & Dragons, or if you are in fact in a Dungeon or are a Dragon and it's not a game it's your reality.
Stevie Wonder's #1 hit from 1972 gets the SYSO treatment, so get ready for black cats, rabbits feet and throwing salt over your shoulder. Or don't, since the song doesn't mention any of those things. Why not? Was this Motown's answer to Heavy Metal? And is a baby still any good after it's been sitting around for 13 months? Host Joe Dator and guest Susan Kruglinski are left Wondering.
Norway has produced Henrik Ibsen, Edvards Grieg & Munch, and a whole lot of guys named Thor, but none of them has had more lasting impact than a-ha's "Take On Me". Who were a-ha? What the høëk was going on in that video? How did one Norwegian change your Japanese dining experience forever? Host Joe Dator and returning guest Paul Castiglia brave the fjords and possible moose bites to take on this 80s pop classic.
In 1977 London, a perennial classic was created that endures to this day. I'm talking, of course, about the movie "Star Wars" which Alex Robinson & Pete The Retailer talk about every day on their podcast Star Wars Minute. Also, they're here today to help dissect Dire Straits' classic "Sultans Of Swing", which features fewer starships and laser swords, but just as many questionable bar bands. Did Guitar George really know all the chords? Did he know any? And was Harry truly doing alright? Step inside and find out. You wont see too many faces, but that's because it's a podcast and there aren't any pictures.
