On an all-new special never before heard Bladtcast, we are back in studio with a return appearance from our pal Matt in KC and a very special appearance by Embarrassement Emeritus Liev, in what might be his final appearance on The Bladtcast.
Consider this your one and only warning that the content during the Liev segment is not only explicit, it is HIGHLY inappropriate and PAINFULLY incorrect on every level, designed for maximum offensiveness.
Liev gives us an update as to what he is up to in the guise of Producer Dave of Graham in the Morning on Go Country, and then weighs in on Andrew Jackson being taken off the 20 dollar bill, how Donald Trump will make America great again, the 9th grade girls who hired a male stripper for their synchronized swimming club, the passing of Prince, a new study that found 25% of men fake orgasms, the president of Harvard's Porcellian Club stepping down because he said he shouldn't be allowed in because it would increase sexual assaults, a study that shows that teenage girls in the US start drinking earlier than boys, a Florida man who was arrested on charges for picking up a prostitute while impersonating a police officer, the female-only Uber called Chariot, remembering our trip to the 2015 ESPYs, Will's career, a trip to Vegas, life in Hermosa Beach...and what he most regrets about making this appearance on the Bladtcast.
The gang then does a post-game damage control on Liev's appearance, including how Mrs. Starling REALLY feels about the comments Liev makes about her, then moving on to LL Cool J, Matt's Stop set, how Starbucks had to apologize for a barista who wrote "diabetes here I come" on a grande white mocha, the amazing Casey Kasem outtake about a dog dedication after an up tempo record, a special appearance by Mark Wahlberg, an obnoxious McDonald's employee, Christian's epic take down of an AMC Theater employee who was trying to scam Star Wars action figures for himself, Jeff's almost-manslaughter at the airport, the pressures of ordering food for delivery, the elusive 100 emoji for Android, and how Liev kept it TOO 100.

Heather laments the passing of shows like ABC's "Selfie" and CBS's "The Class", and Natasha talks about working three jobs, including working at a marijuana collective where they are very serious about the business of filling prescriptions for medical marijuana.
The ladies discuss their expectations are for the all-female "Ghostbusters" re-boot, and comment on the female aspect of "Neighbors 2".
The discussion moves towards "Promposals", very elaborate ways to ask for the proms, and how it only reinforces future disappointment for later in life, which is reinforced by romantic comedies and the misconception that high school is the best time of your life, which ultimately leads to both Captain EO and Agent Romanoff talking about their experiences at the prom -- adding to our conversation on proms that started in Bladtcast #75.

Thinking back on this episode, Christian said that it was one of his absolute favorite experiences in doing the Bladtcast, and his favorite thing was the way that Mr. Claremont referred to the X-Men by their real names as opposed to their code names or "super hero names", such as Logan, Ororo, Kurt, and, especially Charlie. If you enjoy listening half as much as he enjoyed recording it, you'll have a smile on your face for the next hour and a half.
