Episode #8 – Great Gig in the Sky

Look who’s back! Ok STO fans, it’s been a while — Tony and Evan have been hard at work saving the galaxy. Ok, maybe not the galaxy, but at least our own sanity from child raising. This episode takes on the challenges of explaining death to your kids. They also give a breakdown on the magic of StarLord and the Guardians.

Evan’s episodic Top 10 focuses on the top keyboards players in history, which transitions into who actually comes up with these top lists (Really Top 10 website – Axel Rose is ranked above Ben Folds for the top keyboardists? WTF!). Feel free to add your favorite keyboardists in the comments.

Ok, well “Joyous” maybe isn’t the most appropriate description, but Tony is excited that they just released an audio described tour for some of the key parts of the museum — a big step forward for making museums accessible for the blind, and a step backward for building up Tony’s faith in the kindness of humanity after spending the afternoon at the museum.

Launching into the episode with a “Bucket full of fun,” Tony and Evan begin to breakdown the complexities of religion and parenting. In an attempt to lighten the mood, Evan quizzes Tony on the ranking of Saturday Night Live (SNL) actors – Tony nails the top two (swish). They wrap up calling into question Tony’s childhood fascination with Richard Dreyfus (Jaws, Close Encounter of the 3rd kind), and tony keeps the faith by bringing it back to religion in Dreyfuss’ early full-length films,  The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (Any relation?(.
