Mike has teamed up with director Eric Martin to adapt the novelization into a fully immersive cinematic audio experience, and an epic all-star cast has come together to introduce Stinker to a whole new generation of fans! It's Smokey and the Bandit meets Every Which Way But Loose meets Smokey and the Bandit Parts 2 and 3. Feel the thrill as Stinker teams up with old pals Boner and Jumbo, plus new friends Buck and Rascal the Chimp, for a crazy ride across the highways and byways of Bicentennial America.

Would you listen to Stinker Lets Loose! again? Why?

You bet y'er tuchus I'll be listenin' to this over an' over again! If Jesus Christ ever crossed the land bridge this is undoubtedly the tome he'd chisel onto golden plates and bury deep in the ground to plant the seeds of American freedom. Come to think of it, Mike Sacks may himself be the holiest prophet we've got anywhere north of an Ocean City MD boardwalk psychic. Possibly wiser than A Ripley's Believe it or Not ticket-taker. Definitely holier than a South of the Border bartender. In other words, this story's got it all.

What did you like best about this story?

The attention to detail is phenomenal and really captures the era being celebrated and satirized. Paired with tremendous production quality to enrich the story, characters seared themselves into my mind's eye with distinctive voices.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not much to say on this front, other than the fact that the narrator was exactly what I imagined while reading the book. He totally nailed it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

​I laughed. I cried. I belched.​ I think I guffawed too. (but I can't be sure on that one)

Any additional comments?

Is there a sequel (or even a prequel) on the horizon?
