This week, we're joined by legendary chatterbox and walking almanac Jared Petty, so in lieu of asking him questions, we're just feeding him listener-submitted keywords and seeing what trivia, anecdotes, or confessions he conjures up.

Crisp -- the last of which somehow devolves into a dissection of the relevance of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels in the 21st century.
