    They had to give Ed the Brain Smasher an elaborate back-story because otherwise the audience’s suspension-of-disbelief would be _ruined_ by loudly wondering ‘How is this guy not a rocket scientist or some super-rich quant?’.

  2. Christoph says:

    April has the greatest laugh. That shit is amazing.

  3. Christoph says:

    Also glad to see “I don’t feel at home in this world anymore” get a shout out. That movie is fantastic.

  4. Tim says:

    I really like these guest episodes. Other than freeing the show from the tyranny of what’s been released recently, having the guests (who have been great) bring their favourite movies mean the movies are going to have *something* fun going on!

  5. Bruce Hickman says:

    Why isn’t the guest mic’d?

  6. Gerald Fnord says:

    They felt it necessary to give Ed Brain Smasher a back-story because otherwise the audience would be preoccupied wondering ‘Why is this man not a brain surgeon, or a lyric poet?’.

    Big thanks for publishing the episode low-bitrate while I was on vacation!
