Auteur Theory

Alright, so this was mostly a conversation that happened off-air, but I think we just need to get out in front of it. Our co-host, Nicholas Edward Jones, has a deep hatred for chartered boats. I don't know what happened to him in his past to ingrain this in him; but he especially hates them when the captain on board is Steve Guttenberg. He's apparently fine with them when the captain is a drunk Englishman who gets eaten by an oversized fish; but not someone who - despite being a trained law-enforcement officer - needs help from Becker and Spock to raise a Little Lady. 

In fact, I, Christopher R. Smith, and our special guest, comedian/musician Scott Gesser, find charter boats lovely and charming; especially when they're escorting some lovable old folks to escape this planet with their new extraterrestrial friends as they do in Ron Howard's 1985 sci-fi/ comedy Cocoon.

There's not much we can do about Nick's bigotry against a mid-sized schooner with The Gutts at the helm. But maybe this feel-good 80s favorite will melt his cold, cold heart. Join Scott, me, and Ebenezer Jones to find out.
