Episode #8 - The California Raisins

The shriveled boys of Network Special are back in California and this time they’re bringing along a couple of friends from advertising. The California Raisins were created by an ad agency to sell - you guessed it - raisins. The Raisins were so popular that they spawned a couple of television specials, a soundtrack, and a bunch of merchandise. Zachariah and Nathan dive deep into the vine to find out what makes these grapes so special.
