The 80th T100P podcast chronicles the WWII adventures of General George S. Patton, played so memorably by George C. Scott. War biopics are not a barrel of fun, but we managed to have some fun with this movie. How many people have compared the General to Mike Tyson & Barry Bonds? We did! Find out why. Plus…Sparkplug Coffee!

Plus, the General died in 1945, so the post-war life we talked about was that he didn’t live much past the war.
