The Dating Game was a CIA Plot with Brian Huskey

We all know The Dating Game! The weird 60s game show that basically invented reality tv, where swingin’ bachelors and bachelorettes ask each other overtly s*xual questions from either side of a screen? But what if that sweet, innocuous game show was actually… a CIA front?? Our guest this week is the truly delightful comedian Brian Huskey (host of the podcast Bald Talk) and he dares to ask the dangerous questions. Brian’s got a theory that the host of The Dating Game was a cold-blooded killer and a soldier in the Cold War. This ep we also discuss our least-favorite NPR hosts, water sports, exotic erotic vacations, and how much everyone hated Chuck Barris.
