Jon is back to discuss the 25th anniversary of Nirvana's iconic album Nevermind. But before they get there, they talk about Star Wars, Ready Player One, TJ Miller hosting the Crunchies, and the Rosewood hotel.

At the 18 min mark, they talk Nirvana, Depeche Mode, Pearl Jam, and rank the songs on the Nevermind album.

At the 1 hour mark, Rhett let's Jon finish his recap of the 2016 movies that could potentially have a historic significance to future historians.

Around an hour 9 minutes, they theorize about the idea of nostalgia and finite history using Stranger Things as the archetype for "new" old TV shows, movies, and songs.

Unofficial non-sponsor this week is the Red Cross.

Rhett calls Scott to talk about the BYU/Utah football rivalry. The first part of the episode is about fandom, why they are BYU football fans, and the cultural impact of having a common interest.

In the second part, they pick out their least and most favorite BYU/Utah rivalry games (spoiler: someone is still open). 

Finally, Rhett confesses to 3 pranks he has pulled on Utah fans over the years and realizes that maybe, just maybe, he is part of the problem (but trying to be better).

 

Not a sponsor, but check out charitywater.org. A great cause and founding story.

Rhett calls Jon to talk about the new podcast and explains where he got the name. Many tangents follow. Hilarity ensues.
