Bob and Brad wrap up their miniseries of Coen Brothers comedies with their 1998 film The Big Lebowski, a first-time watch for Brad and just the second time for Bob. Unlike Raising Arizona, Bob was not a fan of this cult classic the first time he saw it, so our hosts have invited author Cathleen Falsani to help break down why this movie is so beloved. Cathleen's book The Dude Abides: The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers was is an incredible read, and she breaks down the deeper themes of Lebowski, and specifically Jeff Bridges' iconic turn, better than anyone.
Meanwhile, the gang reviews two beverages. First, for their whiskey review, it's the Speyside scotch Cragganmore 12. Then, because Cathleen requested a non-alcoholic whiskey substitute, it's NKD LADY Whiskey Alternative.
