Flopcast 543: Alive and Chicken
It's a weird mix of topics for this quick little show, including: Kornflake mini-golfing in a hockey uniform; fun with standing desks (we've cleared the studio of silly old-fashioned chairs); International Teachers Day (just an excuse to celebrate Welcome Back, Kotter); the new season of Cobra Kai (and Kornflake's controversial Swank theories); ESO Network updates (300 episodes of Earth Station DCU! Monkeeing Around, a fun new Monkees podcast! And a Modern Musicology interview with an actual member of The Go-Go's!); a bizarre Chickens in the News story from a Florida garage; and a shockingly enthusiastic review of Frankenberry. Next week: Something special is happening here on The Flopcast. Not Go-Go's-level special, but something...
Cobra Kai continues bringing actors from the Karate Kid film trilogy into the fold. The latest season re-introduces Robyn Lively's Jessica Andrews!
Ed's latest news item is a few years old, but we can excuse him for falling behind when there's so much else to think about. Fortunately, chickens in cars is a timeless topic!
In ESO Network news, Earth Station DCU celebrates a milestone, Monkeeing Around brings exposure to one of our favorite bands, and Modern Musicology lands an interview with Go-Go's drummer Gina Schock!
