This week's podcast is all about Vegas, baby! Well...not exactly. It's all about Swingers, which spends a grand total of 15 minutes in Las Vegas. The rest is all about idealizing modern notions of coolness all set to a soundtrack of swing and lounge revival goodness.
Swingers was one of the pillars of the mid-90s indie film boom, and also a signpost for the toxic masculinity of the era. In between all of that is a soundtrack that Libby calls "wall-to-wall bangers". We get standards from Dean Martin and Tony Bennett, some classic country from Roger Miller and George Jones, and a healthy dose of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for good measure. So put on your best bowling shirt and grab yourself a cocktail, cuz this episode is money, baby!
