Welcome to season two of Coyle & Sharpe: The Imposters! In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. These original recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.
On this episode: Coyle & Sharpe propose a unique way to revitalize the waterfront.
Martin Starr joins Jordan and Jesse to discuss the demise of his show Party Down, favorite restaurants, secret sex parties and more.

A wonderful, fascinating, hilarious scene from episode two of Louie on F/X. Not even close to being safe for work. Featuring provocations from Jim Norton and Nick DiPaolo, charm from Eddie Brill and past TSOYA performer Hannibal Burress and patient insight from Rick Crom.
Our friend Mr. John Hodgman did a wonderful Daily Show segment this week on America's Favorite Sport, soccer aka football.
This was Beyonce's first solo single - a track from the Austin Powers 2 soundtrack. Produced by the Neptunes. One of my favorite Beyonce songs even now. This was one of the Neptunes most productive periods - after they'd established their signature sound, and started to get a little odd. I'm also a big fan of their album Clones, from right around this same time. Roscoe P. Coldchain's "Hot", which featured Pusha T from the Clipse and Boobonic from Philly's Most Wanted still bangs. Anyway, this Beyonce song is a jam. Sorry about all the Austin Power in the video.
