Rev your motor and tighten that helmet, because we're hitting the road with the heroes of the California Highway Patrol. Come along with us, as the 70s merge into the 80s, a time when action was gentle, aviators were made for lowering suggestively, and racquetball reigned supreme.

Best pals.

Listen in to learn how costars Estrada and Wilcox got along (or didn't), what surprising turns their later careers took, and just how much Jeffrey loves Airport 1975.

By listener demand we also take another (brief) look at the eps we watched for Exhibit 38 (Boy Meets World).
