Episode 429 – Ben Acker and the Thrilling Adventure Hour  

This week:

Liquor!
Gods!
A drunk lady rattling off the names of animals!

I talk to Ben Acker of the Thrilling Adventure Hour, and play one of my favorite episodes of Beyond Belief: "White Hunter, Drunk Heart".

Those wacky married mediums, Sadie and Frank Doyle (Paget Brewster and Paul F. Tompkins) are on an adventure in the Serengeti -- but when they kill a god's favorite lion, have they taken it a step too safari?
