Episode 60: The Wild World of 1980s California
Sorry about the delay of game! Luckily, the DCOMedy Crew, along with new guest Spencer, are finally ready to take it to the hoop and talk about what might just be the greatest achievement in basketball cinema ever: Double Teamed. Join us as we journey to the strange and fantastical alternate reality of 1985 California, where rules don’t matter and girl’s basketball is the height of athletic entertainment. There we can all bear witness to the meteoric rise of two "identical" twins as they dominate the sport with their unique strategies and skills out on the court. Well okay, it’s mostly their height. Really it’s all about their height.
Luke easily loses track of the twins and dives deep into a family’s secrets. Emma breaks out a killer impression and awakens her inner teenage girl.
Spencer spills the secrets on being a twin.
