It turns out too many tasteless chicken jokes drive the podcast off the road.
But that’s not all you get in this episode of WhatTheCast! We spend a lot lot lot of time talking about The Dark Knight Rises. The cast is all over the map, with some love and some dislike.

We learn that the popular ThinkGeek cat ears were predicted by the world’s greatest film ever, that the new XKCD spin-off What If? is answering fun physics questions, and that astronaut and scientist Sally Ride came out as a lesbian in her official obituary. Also, if you’ve ever wanted to know what a video version of Axe Cop would look like acted out by people like Dave Foley and Joss Whedon, here’s “Scary Smash”, the first episode of the series Written By a Kid.
