DIAR Episode #044

The show starts with a postmodern version of the Miley Cyrus hit We Can't Stop. That leads to talk of the Billboard Awards show. They talk about Katy Perry, Lorde, and the craptastic Imagine Dragons. The dudes then get into the state of television. The conversation involves Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad. Television has come a long way from the days of general audience shows like The Beverly Hillbillies and Gilligan's Island. That leads to a comparison of television to the business models of big-box retailers and boutiques. Later, they bring up the great Neil deGrasse Tyson. They also get around to some Simpsons talk. The show closes with some old-school Black Flag.
