"Time Crisis, back in Los Angeles. I reconnect with Jake, as we talk about Bernie Madoff and the Grateful Dead. We also answer listener emails, and educate ourselves about the origins of Five Hour Energy drink. All this, plus we count down the Top Five hits of 1967 and 2017. This is Time Crisis."



Ezra and Jake look into Five Hour Energy drink and its Buddhist/capitalist creator. The theme of trying to accommodate two conflicting world views continues as they discuss the Long Strange Trip Grateful Dead documentary, which details how the industry consumed Jerry Garcia. They read listener emails, asking for relationship advice when dating a Chainsmokers fan and complimenting Jake on his Home Depot Playlist. Jake takes us through his newest curated playlist - 43 minutes of upbeat post-punk for your workout. During a rough Top Five, Ezra hurtles through a 50-year journey of America's cultural and political landscape from 1967 to 2017. At the end they pay tribute to the recently passed Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers Band, and read a physical letter from 14-year-old Kenny.
