TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

Gurdip, Justin & Ryan wrap up a lengthy deep dive into Elvis' last feature length film, 1969's "Change of Habit." Justin & Ryan explain why the film resonates with them, from its humor and grounded nature compared to Elvis' other films, to its good-hearted-if-clumsy attempt to address social injustices that are unfortunately still very real today. Then, for Song of the Week, Ryan's so square he exits the show early to go to bed, but you won't care, because Gurdip parties it up tackling the Latin-flavored early 60s dance song "Kiss Me Quick" and Justin goes deep for a one-off jam...

TCBCast: An Unofficial Elvis Presley Fan Podcast

A throne of bad puns, plot holes, and inexplicable stupidity you can only find... in the TCBCast Zone.
