    This is the "side B" to last week's episode featuring filmmaker Robert Galluzzo and L7's Jennifer Finch.

It's a fascinating documentary that includes insights from Finch, Henry Rollins, the late Kim Shattuck (The Muffs), Money Mark (Beastie Boys) and many more. This is the second of a 2 part episode.
