Dare Daniel Mini-Episode 26.5

“The orchestra didn’t have a string section, it had a heartstring section.”

Buddy cops Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell play by their own rules in this super-sized mini-episode, avenging each other’s deaths even after the angry Sargeant orders them off the cases.  The mismatched podcast hosts first look ahead to next week’s review of the racist 1989 action comedy Collision Course, starring the mismatched Pat Morita and Jay Leno as mismatched cops trying to retrieve a stolen turbocharger.  While hill-person Corky struggles with the internet, the question of the week is left to Daniel, who has an ax to grind against a certain British battleax.  Elsewhere, the hosts discuss musical schmaltz, one-arm push-ups, Warwick Davis’ mic skills and the dangers of candy corn addiction, before finally agreeing that John Leguizamo is John Leguiza-less.
