Tell The Damn Story 132: Turn Left At "The Grind!"

And BATTLING THE GRIND This week Alex and Chris dive deep into the struggle that we're all facing; the war against boredom. While outlining some of the challenges they suggest ways to keep yourself occupied and your spirits up, inside the house, outside the house, with the social distancing, and online. Do not despair. Do not give in. There is hope. There is life. There are literary and cinematic distractions. And ... there is really interesting trivia on your favorite artists -- past and present -- somewhere on the Internet!

So listen tight and take notes.  :)

* In response to a comment Chris made in the show, I mentioned an old Terry Thomas movie. Here's a link to it on YouTube.  "A MATTER OF WHO."
