Part 2 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we dissect a not-so-classic episode of the Brady Bunch. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from The Gories, King Khan and Mind Spiders.
- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ
- Watch the episode along with us at the CompCon YouTube channel

- Brady Bunch producer used the show to air a pilot for a spinoff
- Ken Berry was the "star"
- Berry was in Disney movies, F Troop, failed pilots, later Mama's Family
- Show's kind of a bummer
- Brady Bunch audience must have been annoyed by lack of Bradys
- Gotta love the racial platitudes
- Where are the blue kids?
- The mini-Warriors
- Berry teaches the kids the ol' soft shoe
- Snobby racist neighbor character
- Groovy Greg Brady makes an appearance
- Dube makes gratuitous Arkancilliopoulos reference
