In this week’s episode, special guest Kelvin Hatle, comedian and erudite thought-leader, returns to the Pleasure Dome to profess his love of so-bad-it’s-good filmmaking. Did Vikings wear bath mats? Does furniture crave fried chicken? Where can you find Patrick Swayze doing a sexy belt dance on roller skates? Find out in this episode!
If you would like to drink along with us, we highly recommend The Gaucho Club’s Oak Cask Malbec. It sustained us in our times of laughter and tears.
Show notes, photos, and oh-so-many links behind the cut!
