Mystery Shack Lookback


Apr 27, 2022

Charley and Ella are joined by singer/songwriter/ukulelist Molly Lewis to watch "The Stanchurian Candidate" and travel back to the halcyon days of 2015, when a grifter running for office was funny. We discuss the personal impact of Molly's work, the episode's political satire intersecting with reality, and the epic conclusion to the saga of Tad Strange.
