It’s Casual Friday!

Cliff Schecter (@cliffschecter) will be joining us today! Followed by our movie review guy…we think? Also, songs from Screaming Majority and Jimmy Reefercake (@JimmyReefercake)!

Update: …Surprise! Marc Maron called into the show to take over Chris Rosen’s place as movie reviewer for the day. But after Maron got off the line we received a very angry phone call from a “Chris Rosen.”
