Episode 299: The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes

Episode 299

7th December 2019

We attempt to exploit the zeitgeist by… reviewing a movie from 1969. We may not be good at this zeitgeist thing. More to the point — since Disney+ has been in the news, we attempt to bask in some reflected glory by talking about the young Kurt Russell Disney live-action vehicle, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (thanks to longtime Daily Show producer and head researcher Adam Chodikoff for the idea). Meanwhile Stu makes the fatal error of encouraging Elliott’s singing, Elliott takes us inside the pitch meetings for our favorite cereal mascots, and Dan has the plague.
