Pod Stallions Episode 92: 70s Variety Shows

All loyal listeners of Pod Stallions know we live by the ‘variety is the spice of life’ philosophy, so we thought it was time we celebrated that. In this episode, we welcome producer/clip expert Steve Kozak to our third chair, and we discuss the “variety special” trends of the 70s & 80s, and deep dive into The Star Wars Holiday Special, in advance of Steve’s upcoming doc ‘A Disturbance in the Force‘ (Jason is a producer on it, too!). 

Along the way Wolfman Jack, Quincy, John Vernon, Paul Lynde, and Shields & Yarnell (naturally) get mentions. ‘Alice’ will not be seen tonight, so we can bring you this Pod Stallions SPECIAL presentation!
