It turns out that Neil Armstrong was known to bring his work home with him, and it also turns out that Dan Levy has racked up a much more impressive swag stash in his career than Keith Conrad. Plus, Dan was the only person in America not caught up in House of Cards fever this week, an astonishing number of Americans believe in Astrology and some florists in Colorado have come up with the perfect last minute Valentine’s Day gift.
Keith watched the Michael Keaton/Tim Burton version of Batman for the first time in years on Netflix the other day. The scene where the Joker shoots Jack Palance is the first time Keith remembers being entertained by a death scene rather than horrified, because he realized that it as just a movie. The memory led to a chat with Dan Levy about the most memorable death scenes. Keith has a potential solution for all of the abandoned buildings in Detroit, and it comes from Abraham Lincoln. A Delta Airlines pilot locked himself out of the cockpit, causing the co-pilot to have to step up and land the airplane, Ted Striker-style. Plus, it turns out that Russia really knows how to hold a grudge.

Dan Levy recently had a child, so naturally he has been completely cut off from the world of pop culture. Thankfully Keith Conrad is here to catch him up on the insidious earworm that is “Too Many Cooks.” The city of Chicago isn’t a fan of people going topless in public. Since he’s been unemployed, Keith has been killing time on Reddit learning new things, but he still can’t answer one of the most pressing issues of our time: What happened to Lou Piniella’s mom?
It seems like every show out there is looking back at what happened in 2014. Here at Gabatron, we decided to look ahead to what is going to happen in the future. One thing that will definitely happen? Marc Trestman will be looking to unload some real estate in Chicago. Plus, Dan tries to contain his boredom as Keith talks about some geeky space thing that’s about to happen.
