#105 – Stuck Inside of Memphis with the Mobile Blues Again
An episode of Lewis Black’s Rantcast
Our host Lewis checks in this week from the Home of the Blues, Memphis, Tennessee! We’re recording this week’s episode in the parking lot of Sun Studios. Sun Studios has produced some legendary, great music. Countless hits. Midterm elections were this week and all the news coverage of it has been people standing in line. Even though people are standing in line to vote, our host reminds you that you need to give people a reason to vote! One political party comes up with solutions they can’t explain. The other political party wants to keep their good ideas a secret. It’s important to vote. It matters. Lewis is sick of people saying that George Carlin didn’t vote. How do you know that to be true? He could just be saying that because he’s George and he is a comedian! But then again, voting probably did genuinely bother him a lot. Lewis had an extra day to spend some time in Memphis. If he’s being honest, he ordered enough BBQ to feed a family of six. Also, if you’re ever in Memphis, you need to visit the civil rights museum. It will be one of the most extraordinary experiences you can ever have. It’s crazy that they don’t want to teach about civil rights history in school. Kids need to learn about this.
Our host’s next stops in his tour are in Georgia and North Carolina. As always, our host reminds us that we take care of each other. It’s the most important thing we can do for one another.
This week’s live rants were filmed at Austin City Limits at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas and the Majestic Theater in Dallas, Texas.
