S06.E12: The Great American Pop Culture Dinner Party
Here we are, the last playoff match of season before next week's championship bout! Returning victors Ian, Megan, and Danny test their knowledge of a thing we do not talk about. Round one will throw a dinner party for our favorite title characters before round two dives into the byzantine logic behind the titling of movie sequels. A customary lightning round caps off a tense match. See you next week for the season finale!
🍆 The Mahna Mahna scorebreak: Mahna Mahna - The song Jim Henson discovered after it was used over footage of young women in a sauna in a "documentary" about sex in Sweden called Sweden: Heaven or Hell. [7/10: informative, but a little on the wordy side]
🤔 The Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. Scorebreak. Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr: I'm sure Dan will have something for this. The Imperial Presidency is both presicent and the most scathing imaginable rebuke of Nixon, and I love that they wound up as neighbors later in life. [8/10 straight pandering, but I'm not above that.]
📚 Megan wants listeners to support local public and school libraries.
💰 Danny wants them to support their local Planned Parenthood
😶🌫️ Ian doesn't have anything to plug himself, but he seconds what Megan and Danny said.
