Bobby Darin's version of "Mack The Knife" lets us cover our favorite nerdy bases, including theater history, true-crime history, and handsome men in white tuxedo jackets. We also ponder whether Darin was a proto-gangsta rapper, and we get pissed all over again about Kevin Spacey. Plus, we answer a listener voicemail!
