The St. Louis Chat Show is the podcast that talks St. Louis in the 80s, 90s and today. Join hosts Mark Storm and Beck Becker as they talk about what's going on in St. Louis, tell stories, play the occasional game, chat with guests, and more. It's half late night talk show, half radio show, and half public access cable show. (Math isn't our strong suit but you'll have fun anyway.)
