Men in Charge Season 11, Episode 10: We're Living Your Best Life!

In this episode, Kevin and Tony explain why your life feels so much like a big cheat. Why? Because they’re living your best life, sitting in the dark in their underwear drinking RC Cola, which is what you wish you could do, but you can’t, because you don’t have a radio show or podcast. And tonight the show is pared down to two really, really long segments. The first is a return to the heroic inactivity of Mr. Skids (#7), this time as he saves the Federal Reserve! Next is another edition of the award-proximate “Deputized!” series, in which Sidney Greenstreet, famously plump celluloid villain, rides along with Sheriff Coors and Deputy Withers to solve a crime, if only by trying to commit a new one. So enjoy a show in which even fictional characters are having a better time than you are!

Tony Flinn, known around the model railroad track in his basement as “Professor of English, Emeritus,” recently retired from Eastern Washington University to age in place, like an old car up on blocks in the barn, convenient for climbing behind the wheel and saying “Vroom! Vroom!” He and his co-host and co-producer, Kevin Decker, have been writing and performing in “Men in Charge” since probably 2014, or even earlier, depending on whether you’re using the Julian or Gregorian calendar.
Kevin Decker, Professor of Philosophy, was left holding the bag when Tony Flinn recently retired from Eastern Washington University. That bag was full of cats. At first, he thought they were cute, but then they woke up and started mauling him. It turned out that the cats were mountain lion cubs, often referred to incorrectly as “cougars.” One had rabies. From his now-permanent hospital bed, Kevin writes for and co-produces “Men in Charge,” the title of which may or may not be ironic
