EHG 109: Pledging Allegiance To The Americans

Nick Rheinwald-Jones returns to join us in surveilling the Season 4 premiere of FX's spy drama!

Tradecraft enthusiast Nick Rheinwald-Jones creeps back onto the podcast under cover of night to talk about the Season 4 premiere of The Americans. We break with tradition to let Dave interview Liv about the latest episode of Face Off, and ponder whether the jazz at the jazz club in House Of Cards is worse than jazz. Around The Dial stops at Royal Pains, Not Safe With Nikki Glaser, the pre-Crazy Ex-Girlfriend YouTube clips of Rachel Bloom, Bosch, and another racist TV ad from the '80s. Nick makes the case for the induction of the "4 Days Out" episode of Breaking Bad to the Canon, and then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a starchy Game Time. Go dark (to the rest of the world) and enjoy!
