Come on down! Director C.J. Wallis joins us to talk about his film “Perfect Bid: The Contestant Who Knew Too Much,” which tells the story of Ted Slauson, a math assessment test writer and “The Price Is Right” fanatic. From an early age, Slauson studied the prices of the show’s prizes, and even wrote software to help him memorize them. He became caught up in a controversy when one contestant got a price a little too right. Plus: we discuss our love for comfort TV classics and needing to take a break from intense media content.

Hosts: Eric Steuer and Jason Betrue

Guest: C.J. Wallis

Theme music: Yalls (
