Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam, hosts of The Dinner Party, join the show for their weekly booster shot of cultural news.

On tap this week, the history of bicycle day, a proud Dad drops the ball and destroys the biggest prize in college football, and an Italian museum decides to protest budget cuts by burning part of its collection.

The Dinner Party airs on Sundays on KPCC at 3 p.m.
