In between the next "Dirty Sons of Pitches" recording, enjoy an episode of Ben's other podcast with his brother Geroge, the "Saturday Night Live"-related podcast that finds the weird and awful movies of those from America's preeminant late-night skecth comedy series. This time they tackle the 1994 unspervised kids camp comedy, "Campy Nowhere," ith Christopher Lloyd as the lone adult keeping up the good times charade. There actually is a theme bar somewhere in America devoted to nostalgically recall this strange and uncomfortable kids movie that doesn't seem made for kids.
