  1. Heather Drain not liking American Graffiti makes me want to blow up the world. It's SOOO good. When I first saw it as a teenager in the early 80s I thought it was haunting and sad. The opposite of what the tv show Happy Days became. Love this podcast. You should do More American Graffiti which is also haunting because it explores the last days of the two deceased characters.

  2. EXCELLENT, but shit, someone tell Carl Dupre to take a breath and slow down
