As Jim takes a drink it is now his turn to get some background. He asks Sheriff Bart how a dazzingly urbanite like him, wound up in a rustic setting like Rock Ridge. As Bart begins to tell his story, the music swells and we get the Blazing Saddles theme done as full orchestra with a heavy western motif. A long line of wagons is heading west along the prairie. Bart explains that in '56, he and his family were part of that wagon train. He then corrects himself. He explains they were not so much a part of it. He says, "You might say we was bringing up the rear." Suddenly, the entire Sioux nation was riding down to attack them.

Today’s guests are Sean German and Dave Pallas. Sean is a host on the Spinal Tap Minute, Groundhog Minute and Five Minutes of Mime and has been a guest on the Indiana Jones Minute and several other movies by minutes podcasts. Dave is the host of 5 Minutes of Mystery covering the 1999 super-hero ensemble, Mystery Men, and is co-host of Groundhog Minute. He likes Jersey food and board games where you lie to your friends.
