episode 177 -- "Cray-C"

 

Join Mike in the studio late at night as he remembers Crazy-C, the wannabe rapper from his college acting class who brought a class production of Mamet's "American Buffalo" to a show-stopping conclusion. Later, he talks about how to claim your manliness through bartering. Also, the Heaven's Gate cult.
