Ep. 014 - Happy Birthday Leonard Bernstein - Part 1

Included in this Episode:
Tina has a crush on Leonard Bernstein, but she keeps calling him Beethoven, which possibly means she has a crush on Beethoven as well (she does). Bernstein exploded onto the classical music scene at a young age, made a name for himself as perhaps the most important American-born conductor of the century, made lifelong friendships with many important figures in the music world, and possibly stopped an attack on Israeli troops simply by playing a concert.

Also Included in this Episode:
Jon follows up last week’s episode with a pun about Metronomes, a father-son reunion worthy of a Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs reference, and Bernstein’s potential to EGOT (win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony).
