Episode #138 — The Lady Eve / Johnny Cash at San Quentin / On Broadway / Civilisation

At any given moment, one of the Immortals are pulling a long con on the other one. (For example, Austin tricked them to do a 20 year podcast.)

Just like we want for our President or teachers, we want the jury to be smartest set of 12 people that ever were assembled, because it’s your life on the line.
