Jack felt the need to treat his son to a treat that many Americans have enjoyed over the years, only to be disappointed by the quality of the pop.

In a new episode of The Armstrong & Getty Select Cuts Podcast, Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty discuss the crap-ification of one of life's great pleasures, an Ice Cold A&W Root Beer in a frosty mug. Jack relates it to the Nixon years, and how the world has gone with expedited service at the loss of quality.
