Our second episode looks at "Cool Rider," Michelle Pfeiffer's first big solo. Host David Levy is joined by performance artist Ariel Speedwagon and writer John DeVore, and they discuss how this song works as an "I Want" song, how it relates to both "Summer Nights" and "Greased Lightning" from the first Grease movie, and whether you can straddle a ladder with dignity.

A quick note: the sound on this episode isn't quite where we want it to be, and we apologize for that and thank you for bearing with us. The good news is, we are pretty certain we have figured out all of the problems and our next episode (about the song "Reproduction") should sound beautiful!
