Special Guests: Dean Defino, Jimmy McDonough
Guest Co-Hosts: Beth Accomando, Miguel Rodriguez
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to violence-the word and the act.

A trio of busty go-go dancers (Tura Satana, Haji, Lori Williams) kill a man in the desert and kidnap his girlfriend before attempting to rob a lascivious old man and his two sons in the heated melodrama Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) from auteur Russ Meyer.

Beth Accomando and Miguel Rodriguez of the Horrible Imaginings Film Festival join Mike to discuss this paean to female power and fast cars. Guest Dean Defino is the author of the Cultography on Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, while Jimmy McDonough penned Big Bosoms and Square Jaws: The Biography of Russ Meyer, King of the Sex Film.
