The movie of the week this time around is the 1978 Ron Howard film Cotton Candy, starring Clint Howard (naturally), Leslie King, Charles Martin Smith, and Kevin Lee Miller. Joining Sam is fellow podcaster and writer Sarah Marshall, of the popular podcast You’re Wrong About. Listen as they talk about trying to make “flush you” a thing, as well as the intricacies of “donkey basketball.”

When high schooler George fails to make the football team, he decides to dream big and starts a band, in the hopes of winning the upcoming battle of the bands. Will they reach their ultimate goal? Can a girl be a fox *and* a good drummer?
