Episode 0006, Part 4: …And Godzooky!

Fresh off the Halloween holiday, The Basement is back and Albert’s enlisted the help of Ear Glue Media’s very own Social Media Manager, Josh Crawford, aka Imperial Moonwalker! Join us in a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of Chapter 0006 as we discuss Altered Carbon, Fahrenheit 451, The Sandman, Knight Rider, Voyager, Fight Club, Clerks, The Clash, Midnight Oil, Godzilla…and Godzooky! We even found a way to cover Lio’s “Banana Split”!
