Episode 41: Paul’s Case (1980) & Touched By An Angel S5E22 (/w Evan Munday)

Your REASON FOR LIVING returns! It’s ERITFM episode #41, and we’re getting spiritual! AGAIN! This time we’ve kidnapped writer and illustrator Evan Munday and forced him to watch a 1980 made-for-TV adaptation of Willa Cather’s short story PAUL’S CASE (featuring an impossibly young Eric Roberts). Then we finished him off with an episode of TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL featuring Eric Roberts as a traumatized, racist Vietnam vet who is running a sweatshop! That is, until he’s hit by a beautiful big chunk of the holy spirit. You’ve got nothing better to do! Let’s listen together!

As always, check out ERIC ROBERTS IS THE FUCKING MAN on Twitter, or come chat ER (or anything else) on our Facebook group. Don’t forget to head over to iTunes to subscribe and rate the show. If you like it.. tell a friend! Our theme song is (unofficially) officially endorsed by ERIC ROBERTS!

Our guest this week is the amazing Evan Munday, author of The Dead Kid Detective Agency children’s books, and an illustrator, writer and podcaster. Check him out on Twitter @idontlikemundays or on his personal website http://www.idontlikemundays.com/.
