Well, we have finally done it.  A whole podcast about about Shatner.  We talk about 80 years of toupees, girdles and scenery chewing. Deanna Toxopeus is not very happy about the whole thing, but  Gary Mitchell,  Scott Duchesne and Stephen Granade try to provide some counselling.  Can they convince Deanna that Shatner is not the devil incarnate and deserves his due?  Listen to this supersized podcast ("Shatner will not be contained") to find out.
