David and Elise contemplate the sweater chauvinism of Bing Crosby, the charms of William Bendix, whether or not women on the internet ogling Gene Kelly's butt is categorically different from objectionable objectification, the timeline of Scottish witch trials, and the pros and cons of purity-obsessed utopias that don't allow people to go to university in this episode devoted to two time-travel Technicolor musicals, or semi-musicals, A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT (1949) and BRIGADOON (1954). Note: in response to listener complaints about both Dave's and Elise's volume (depending on the episode and/or your ears, one or the other of us is always too loud), this episode has been run through the Levelator, which is neither a lost sci-fi novel by Henry James nor a new James Cameron movie, but some type of software. Let us know if it's an improvement and some day soon we'll do the same for our back catalogue!
