Hedley decides Lili is onto something. He is going to raise an army of the worst dregs the West has ever seen. He asks Taggart to take down a list. He wants: rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, half-wits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists. Taggart finally finds a paper and pencil and asks, "Could you repeat that?"

Our guests today are Tom Taylor and Pete Mummert. Tom Taylor is busier than he ever intended to be as co–host of The Indiana Jones Minute, Caddyshack Minute, The Blues Brothers Minute and ABCDEVO podcasts. If that weren’t enough, he has also written a young (not-Frankenstein) adult novel, In Memory of Todd Woods.

Pete Mummert is a co-host of the Indiana Jones Minute podcast, a show that the AV Club once hailed as “not nearly as tedious as a thing like this could potentially be.” He lives with his wife, two cats and a monstrous creature that he animated during an electrical storm last year.
