You ever dream that PT Anderson made a movie based on a Thomas Pynchon novel? Me too Doc, me too. It's Inherent Vice. A story about private eyes, southern California, the 60's, the 70's, the difference, corruption, idealism, and drugs, a fair amount of drugs, and Can. We ramble for about an hour and then at the end talk about our friend Jason Chin who passed away. Thanks for listening. Our next show will be Boogie Nights

An Hour with Your Ex is a Chicago based podcast hosted by comedian Mel Evans and buffoon Mark Colomb. Paul Thomas Anderson or PT Anderson wrote and directed Inherent Vice. Thomas Pynchon published the book the movie is based on in 2009. This last bit is for SEO.
