Join hosts Rico Gagliano and Brendan Newnam for a fast and funny 12-minute "cheat sheet" of news and culture... designed to give you enough conversational firepower to dazzle friends and family at this weekend's dinner party. This time around: The artist known as Girl Talk tells us about his pop-music mash-ups (and his explosive high school band)... A short history of Jesse Owens... how to mix a "Berliner Olympic" cocktail... Unconventional wisdom about Anthrax and Airlines... and an introduction to an All-American fruit most Americans have never tasted.
