The Show is UP: George Wallace Revisited

Miles was away and some interview plans fell through, so I took to heart a listener suggestion that instead of not doing anything some weeks, we ought to dust off an oldie. Except we did it our way; we revisited a particularly disastrous interview in the context of a whole new show. It turned out to be very entertaining. Subscribe (it's free!) in iTunes or in Zune.

July 5: The George Wallace Debacle Revisited
The Original George Wallace Episode In Full

For years, listeners have heard us joke about it, but very few have ever actually heard it: The mythical George Wallace interview of November 2005. Every now and then, when we need a reference to someone who treated them badly, it’s always the late-night comic at the Flamingo. But was it really as bad as we remember? We’ll replay that this hour.

In Banter: Vegas websites and analysts behaving badly, an awkward Brad Garrett experience, dinner with Vajohna & Co., and more.
