Beats and Eats - Comedy | Pop Culture | Film | Food | Music | Nerd Podcast (general)
The "virtual lounge" is a serious place on this edition of Beats & Eats.  
Ray and Gelso welcome longtime GOP strategist and author Roger Stone to the program.  Stone, a former aide to Richard Nixon, a veteran of many political campaigns, and a participant in the 2000 Florida Presidential recount, joins Ty and Nick to discuss his book The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ.  
The colorful Stone outlines Johnson's role in the assassination, while presenting evidence he believes supports his findings.  This fascinating conversation is a look into power and corruption at the highest level. This edition of Beats & Eats is not to be missed!  Stone, Ray, and Gelso also chat about the current state of the Republican Party as well as the Duck Dynasty controversy. It's tough to do, but Stone manages to leave Ray and Gelso speechless.
