North Central West Virginia talk show host Reuben Perdue joins The Boys to put a different spin on the week's news, views and screws.
00:00 The Boys talk literature. BOOM! Intellectualism! Right out of the gate! This is what they want!! Inspired by an email sent to Old Spike and an article that made Paul stand and applaud at his computer, the question is whether true literary criticism exists anymore, or whether critics are more interested in poking people in the ribs.
10:10 The future is... now? Against all conceivable odds, some frat boys gave Spike pause for thought. And it wasn't thought about beer bongs, loud rap music and catcalling at beeotches.
15:03 After painting a pretty picture, The Boys examine the week's news in brief (but not in briefs) in Pickin' and Grinnin'.
17:45 Me me me! Us us US, dag nabbit! This Week In Stuff, the segment of the show where The Boys warn and/or recommend their media intake to you. Paul's never-ending quest to recapture his lost childhood continues, thanks to Spiderman And His Amazing Friends. He's further into the Bask Of The Houndervilles on his beloved Kindle (Paul's a contributing blogger at Kindeville, didntcha know) and Wii-ing the Metroid Prime Trilogy. Spike wrote a blog post about the only two tennis games worth playing over the course of twenty years, and is thiiiiis close to winning Wimbledon. He's also reading a book that outlines the science of a really bad day... There's some dodgy audio towards the end of the segment thanks to Skype going a bit doo-lally, so don't adjust your sets.
31:50 And in comes WAJR-FM talk show host Reuben Perdue, ice tea in hand, to act as counterbalance to the past couple of weeks' conversation. Spike appeared on Reuben's show to talk about health care and Lockerbie - you can listen to it in full here, or via the flash player below - Reuben comes on to expand on the release of the Lockerbie bomber, his views on national insurance and nationalised healthcare in America, his choice of Catwoman and why he's not going to talk about the death of Ted Kennedy.

It would be very awesome indeed for you to spread the good word about the show on your blog or your myspace, or your whatever. Click this link, and it will take you to a .txt file, in which resides the raw html code for you to use. Sounds complicated, but it's really not; it's just a cut and paste job, and the html elves do the rest. It will post the fancy-schmancy flash player you see at the top of the screen plus the direct download and the RSS feed. We'd really appreciate your passing the word on!
