In this episode we wander down a dirt road to sit a spell with
friends in a slower time. Wet your whistle, pull up a chair, and
find out what it was like to spend the tumultuous 1960s...out of
the fray. The Andy Griffith show lasted 8 seasons, 249 episodes,
and nearly 6 decades of syndication, so something must be working
for it, and it can't just be Don Knotts's sex appeal.
Tune in to learn the connection between Mayberry and the Big
Bang Theory, discover the difference between a "generic spinoff"
and and "planted spinoff", and gasp at the
expected-but-still-somehow-shocking racism of early 60s stand up

through time and space. If it’s been beamed through the air (and
can be streamed through the internet), we’ll cover it! Subscribe

you by a husband-and-wife team with a devotion to the tube.
