The dudes kick off this show spoofing public radio. They jump right into a conversation on a few of their favorite documentary films. Joey starts the ball rolling with A Band Call Death, which chronicles the story of a early punk rock act. They also chat about Regular Show. Getting back to documentaries, they bring up Pink Ribbons Inc., which focues on breast cancer research charity. Joey then delves into Indie Game, a Sundance award-winning feature about video games. Mike also throws in the political movie Mitt, a look behind the curtain at Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. He also talks about a couple of Sarah Palin documentaries. Later, they go over The People vs. George Lucas, which explores the legacy of the Star Wars franchise. Schooled: The Price of College Sports also gets a nod from Mike. It argues the issues surrounding college athletes (or so-called "student-athletes"). Later, they discuss the film Heckler, which focuses on the heckling of comedians. Both agree on Hot Coffee, documentary that makes a persuasive argument on commonly-held misconceptions. Mars Volta closes this one.
