Episode 49 - A Fistful of Dollars

What would you do for a Klondike Bar? It has nothing to do with this episode. I'm just curious. Finally, our hosts tackle the classic, mostly abandoned American genre; the Western!

Yaw finds a fresh spin on the original story, while Ashley gets some unexpected inspiration from The Bard.
