All the Jersey references in the D&D show open
A listener wrote us the other day saying she loved the show and even the show open we play each day coming out of the 2pm news. It's set to the song "Howl" by The Gaslight Anthem, a New Jersey band.
Interspersed through the song we added movie clips that are making Jersey references. She asked if there's a list of what movies those are from. I decided she can't be the first person to wonder about this, so here they are.
