It’s not a tumor!
Mike and Casey get their asses to Mars with our theme song’s composer, Todd Maxfield-Matsumoto, and Ask an Atheist‘s Rebecca Friedman to talk about America’s favorite Austrian import, Arnold Schwarzenegger!
From cinematic machismo to the governor’s office of California, Schwarzenegger dominated the box office and ballot box for two decades. From Terminator to Twins, from Kindergarten Cop to Batman and Robin, few actors can match the cultural impact of the man who spawned a thousand catch phrases.
So crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of the women, because it’s time to talk about the man behind the muscles.

Another excellent podcast! I don’t really have much to say, but I really enjoyed this episode, especially all the AHNULD! quotes throughout. I confess, I was doing it myself too while listening. You just can’t avoid it! I’m tempted to re-watch Terminator 1 and 2 right now, but I’d really like to re-watch Commando after the discussion of it in the last segment of the show.
