Justin and Gurdip are joined by Jaime Kay of The Jungle Room podcast for TCBCast's 100th Episode Bash. After a brief reintroduction for anyone looking to start listening to TCBCast, an email from a listener presents a thought-provoking discussion about feeling anxious to tell people you're an Elvis fan, then Gurdip and Jaime go head to head for an Elvis trivia challenge!
The 1981 film "This is Elvis," directed by Andrew Solt and Malcolm Leo, comes under scrutiny in the first of a two-part review. Gurdip and Jaime have quite a bit of nostalgia for the film, but does it hold up years later? Plus, comparisons are made between the theatrical and extended home video cuts of the film. With the film covering most of Elvis' life, a wide variety of topics are covered this episode, including Elvis the myth vs Elvis the person, Elvis' romantic relationships, and even a bit of history behind the long-lost film "The Pied Piper of Cleveland."
Next week's Episode 101 will feature the conclusion of the review and, of course, Song of the Week.
