Episode #15 - Bob Hope on the Road to China (1979)

This week Zachariah takes over as our tour guide to China and he's brought along a celebrity friend whose name rhymes with Cobb Dope. We get a peek behind the Great Wall for the first time and Bob Hope is there to make the people of China laugh and laugh and laugh (or sit quietly in confusion). Bob has also brought along some other super 70s celebrity friends but sadly that doesn't make this three-hour tour feel any less like a years-long shipwreck.
