In our first ever birthday episode, Brian’s brother Andrew joins to discuss the documentary of the proto-Chuck E. Cheese animatronic band The Rock-afire Explosion, the band’s creator, and its hardcore devotees. Join as they probe Andrew’s intense dedication to the band, ponder the pathetic-sweet dichotomy of pursuing childhood fancies, and consider the ramifications of a Mountain Dew-only liquid diet for no pacific reason. And have a happy birthday, birthday, birthday, Brian and Andrew, yeah yeah yeah.
