It’s a very special episode of HWX with Brian Ward and Paul Happe reconvening to discuss the critical issues of our times.

The highlight is special guest Mike Nelson of Mystery Science 3000 fame, and now of Rifftrax. We discuss his path to comedy stardom and what the early days of MST3K were like. Also discussed are the latest hijinx in progress at Rifftrax, including their upcoming LIVE show on June 15, in a movie theater near you.

Also discussed is the French Election of last week, including exclusive audio of the acceptance speech by Emmanuel Macron. And a very special Public Service Announcement on behalf of the Canine Gender Dysphoria Institute. 

What were they drinking? Alaskan Summer Aleand Lift Bridge Mango Blonde.

    Great show. The question about which Fed Chairman is funnier might be the best joke you guys have ever done.

    Very tactful to not mention the MST3K reboot.

    Which, that would put Mike in the uncomfortable position of having to say something nice about it without snorting.

    Paul got me interested in trying an Alaskan Summer Ale again, it’s been a few years since I last had one. I used to drink a lot of Alaskan Brewing varieties, but my current every day beer is the Denali Brewing Mother Ale from up the road a bit in Talkeetna.

    I am curious about the French song at the end. Who is the artist, and what is the title? Thanks in advance!

    Haven’t listened for awhile because life, but it sure was nice to be back today. I enjoyed the guest the last time he was on and he didn’t disappoint today, either.

    I’m only 9 minutes into this episode but I’m loving the pronunciation of French names by Brian.
