The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are digging into another directorial double feature for this week's episode, looking at two movies of legendary animator Ralph Bakshi, best known for adult-oriented animated entries. The guys watch the 1977 "Wizards" as the classic for this week and the 1975 "Coonskin" as this week's cult movie, and it's also one of Nate's most awful experiences in the history of this revamped podcast.
