This week on the Dinner Party Download...
Matt Elkin of punk band The So-So Glos desserts good taste with a bad pun.
Opus Moreschi, Emmy-winning writer for The Colbert Report, tells Rico & Brendan about the Navy's high-tech method for killing tree snakes. Hint: it involves Tylenol.
A History Lesson With Booze:
The story of a movie that sounded the death knell for the silent era and for a legendary producer... followed by a cocktail recipe that raises the dead.
Guest of Honor: Robert Reich
Robert Reich was former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton. He's now a professor at Berkeley and author of the new book "Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future." He talks to Brendan about income disparity... and why a woman approached him on the street and told him he should be ashamed of himself.
