Do you remember the good ol’ boy movies of the 1970s? The ones that celebrated a guy, who maybe wasn’t particularly handsome, or smart, or heroic, but he loved hot cars, had a sweet mustache, and was always up for a good time, and inexplicably surrounded by willing women? Well Mike Sacks remembers those movies, which is why he wrote Stinker Lets Loose, the novelization of a “lost” 1976 CB radio classic about a cross-country trucker sent to deliver a shipment of Coors to the president — accompanied by his overweight buddy and a female chimp in heat. We talk to Mike about his book, discuss Game of Thrones, and get the scoop on Comic-Con from Matt Lieb (of ‘The Star Wars Show!’), who just got back from there.
