How do your friends in podcasting follow up on one of their best episodes ever? Well, they start by playing a hilarious voicemail message left by listener Jon Lawlor in the wake of the “Harry Potter” discussion he prompted. Then, they celebrate 67 years of broadcasting excellence by Vin Scully. Then, they engage in perhaps the funniest “celebrity death” they’ve ever covered, remembering the “worst boss in the world”. Dean’s latest comedy shows, Phil’s hosting of An LABC Home Companion, and a Cindy Sherman exhibit are all discussed in “Live Events of the Week” as is the pilgrimage Phil made to Walt Disney’s grave to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney World. Dean answers a question from a listener like you (yes, YOU) about how to prevent air travel from wrecking you physically. Finally, Dean and Phil compare notes on several films, including one of the most overlooked comedies of the 1930’s, a Japanese horror film from the 1960’s that was the most expensive Japanese film ever made at the time, and a charming independent comedy from Ireland that boasted Gene Wilder’s first lead role in a movie.
