Podcast 111: The Hunt for Red Squadtober

A few Skype hiccups make J.R. a little hard to understand on this one in some places. Sorry! Fortunately, with context and the fact that he complains about the same things all the time, you should get the gist just fine. Hey, if you don't like listening this time, we've provided lots and lots of links in the show notes. Click away if you're bored. Just so you're all aware, apparently Frank Oz didn't direct Labyrinth, but he did co-direct The Dark Crystal (as well as actually direct such Star Wars friendly movies as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and What about Bob?)!

Just so everyone knows, the reason Jon thought Jimmy Smits' character in The West Wing is named Mendoza (instead of Santos), is because Jimmy Smits really was a character named Mendoza in this episode of Saturday Night Live (be a Netflix member to view (sketch starts at about 10:35)).
