Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week we give special attention to the special-est nerd clique in high school (which none of us admit to being part of) -- the theater geeks and PAC rats! Grim and Marke wax nostalgic about our time backstage and explore why this is the last nerd herd to get its due in pop culture (Glee, anyone?). We talk to Broadway star Chantel Riley (currently playing Nala in The Lion King and co-starring in the upcoming Jesse Owens biopic Race) plus Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy, and Andrew Ovredahl of truTV's new series Those Who Can't (they also happen to be the stage performance trio known as Grawlix, so they know a bit about theater). We also cover Amazon Prime's new series Mad Dogs and Grim desperately plugs an 8-year-old movie forgotten by the public called Hamlet 2. It's good, it really is! House lights down and curtain up!
