    A comedy cult classic "whodunnit" based on a board game and a postmodern, drug-fueled novel by William S. Burroughs, what connects them? In this episode, we break down the 1985 comedy, Clue and the nightmare fuel that is Naked Lunch. Dive in with us as we explore a punk rock performer/actor, a mainstay of American sketch comedy, a brilliant and talented comedian who is no longer with us, and a 70's rock band with a distinct style.

    We also give a huge "thank you" to the ID10T podcast for their shoutout, promote the incredible George A. Romero Foundation, and circle back to The Godfather's place in our lexicon.
