Get ready for a listener-requested topic, sent in to make Mike finally care about the show again. The boys also bring in special guest Koray to do a draft episode! The plot? To re-cast Lord of the Rings!

Mike, Ryan, and Koray all come up with actors to replace Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Frodo, Gandalf, and Gollum. Nick, our resident movie expert, gets to judge!

Discussion topics include: audience appeal, being too British, CGI, stoner comedies, impersonations, MILFs, Patrick Stewart, Eddie Murphy, 15 hours of whining, Gettysburg, a countrified western Gandalf, physical comedy, method acting, climbing volcanos, and the exact opposite of Orlando Bloom.

What is Koray's new nickname? Does Mike know what a secret is? Is Nick a father? How much of the Muppets history does Ryan know?

The boys are taking you to Isengard in: The Lord of the Rings Draft!
