David Bowie’s dead, and it’s such a damn shame. Sure, we could have talked about the normal crap, but we decided to take a week-long detour and instead spend this episode reflecting upon the accomplishments of one of the greatest artists ever to draw breath. After an unfortunate bout of bodyphlegm and “Yakety Sax,” the Brothers Denton explore their formative years as lil’ tyke Bowiebois, discuss some of their favorite offerings in the Starman’s discography, and then divert from the usual topical path to make infantile references to parts of their bodies — or parts of other people’s bodies. Among our Insufferable Nerd Things of the week: people who whine about The Revenant’s historical inaccuracy (stop it, picky babies), Neil Gaiman books, and Bob’s anger over the sort-of fake first episode of the last season of Mythbusters. Be sure to stick around to the end, when Bob tells the world what he would actually want from a Boba Fett movie.
