And party on dude!!  Join us on this tubular trip through time as we discuss the quirkiest, most laid-back pair of time travelers in cinematic history: Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted "Theodore" Logan, played by the incomparable Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves. They're two high school slackers who are about to change the world with their rock 'n' roll dreams, but there's just one problem: they need an A+ history report to keep the dream alive.

In this episode, we'll delve into the heart of this cult classic, exploring its zany plot and wild historical hijinks. From their phone booth time machine to their encounters with historical figures like Socrates, Joan of Arc, and, of course, Abraham Lincoln, we'll break down the laughs and life lessons woven into the fabric of this excellent adventure.

We'll also chat about the movie's memorable characters, including the Rufus, the time-traveling guide played by the legendary George Carlin, and the delightfully wicked historical figures who are as confused by the modern world as Bill and Ted are by history.
