Ep 17 – May 1991 (Starflight, Smashing Pumpkins – Special Guest Bootsy Spankins)

The amazing Bootsy Spankins joins us this week as we take a look at what was shakin’ in April 1991, including the release of two seminal albums — Ice T’s “OG – Original Gangster” and Smashing Pumpkins’ “Gish” — as well as the groundbreaking Sega Genesis game Starflight, an early precursor to games like Star Citizen and No Man’s Sky.

And in our BONUS episode for Patreon subscribers, we talk about how in 1991 Starbucks began to destroy America and why coffee is both a blessing and a curse.
