Dave tried unsuccessfully to get Mark on the show for months. When it finally happened they pretty much just talked about He-Man toys and boomerangs. Also Punk Rock, Straight Edge, the formation of UNDERTOW, and all the other stuff you might expect. Boomerangs do play a prominent role though.

David Larson is a screenwriter from the Seattle area who ran an independent record label called EXCURSION for many years. Over the course of the last three decades, Dave has formed friendships with a large number of people who have made an artistic impact, mostly in the world of Punk Rock and Hardcore music. Many of these people have gone on to greater and more varied adventures in the worlds of art, film, music, politics, and activism. In this podcast, Dave uses the timeline of their first meeting to explore back and forth through their histories to try and gain a better understanding of how they came to be the people they are today.
They say history is written by the conquerors, and while none of these campaigns are complete yet, it is time to get some of these tales nailed down before they are lost to time and age.
