[0:00] Mark tells the story of Franz Reichelt, the flying tailor.
[11:40] Mark and CoRri are SO bad at math, Mark listened to JoAG for the first time, and we’re ready for the next JoAG watch-along on May 22nd! Let us know any of your suggestions for “MTV horror” to watch.
[24:00] We go off on a tangent about censorship in the U.S. and U.K.
[36:50] We watched VFW, which leads us into a tangent about James Cameron, which leads us into a discussion of Mark’s role in a Titanic musical
[45:20] We share some terrible earthquake stories, and Mark concludes that there’s really only one natural disaster we really need to fear
