Hands Soft as a Baby’s Bottom

Video: Keith Olbermann Squeegies His Third Eye

We’ve got a packed show this week, featuring two co-hosts (show regular Jon Bidwell and introducing documentary filmmaker Zach Roberts), an interview with comic book writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Artifacts) and exlusive audio comments from former MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann, who was on hand with Zach and myself to see the US premiere of American: The Bill Hicks Story, an animated documentary film by British filmmakers Paul Thomas and Matt Harlock. Our thoughts on American fill the second half of the show. We have no music this week, instead leaning on Bill Hicks to provide act breaks and Olbermann to play us out.
