Episode #127 (Look Back): The Agony and the Ecstasy of Luke Burbank

In this long overdue look back, Mike and Bobby run their ironically and suspiciously crushed hands over the iPad from the ol’ LRB satchel, and dial up Bobby’s personal favorite TBTL episode pick. It’s a double shot of troubling realizations from 2012, with Luke literally waking up stranded in Wedgwood with no memory of how he got there, and an update on the demise of insufferable sensationalist Mike Daisey. Simply put, it’s a kind of magic.

This Friday episode of Little Red Bandwagon features nearly all of TBTL episode 1040, DaiseyGate Continues!, which aired on Monday, March 19, 2012.
