Escape (The Piña Colada Song) + Rupert Holmes Interview - Episode 606

This week we're talking about the catchiest little ditty about cheating on your spouse you ever did hear, and we are joined by the brilliant and funny Rupert Holmes to tell the tale. An instant Mount Rushmore interview with a delightful guest. In this episode:

- “JFK had a terrible back, so yoga’s out.”

- We debut a brand new game, "Stump the Genius"

- We discover the genius of renaissance man Rupert Holmes and his various award-winning endeavors, and

- A never-revealed factoid about the recording of "Escape"!
