    Love the show.

    btw, Hong Kong Phooey was a janitor in a police station, voiced by one Scatman Crothers.

    Great episode! Adding Big Bang Theory to the list of shows I need to watch someday. Here’s some unsolicited advice: If you want to have any time to watch television, don’t have children. (Unless they are for snacks, of course.)They’re great and all, but we are talking MAJOR time suckage.

    My brother and I continue to be mentally stimulated by this podcast. That’s the best way I can put it because it’s so genuinely funny and so much about the biz can be learned from you and these wonderful guests. It’s refreshing and we’re always satisfied. I still tell my friends about it and hope you get to do at least 14 more.
    However, R.I.P. measuring in beans.

    I’m going to go with one bum wipe per week, because then you can just time it so you go in your own bathroom, and take a shower right after.

    Thanks guys!! you are all great.

    Alwin, that SOUNDS like a good deal, but i’m pretty sure in Would-You-Rather you can’t create such optimum conditions. You have to take the brunt of the awful decision.

    Love the show. I tweeted Vanessa, but I’d like to put in a vote for either Alan Ruck or Walt Goggins as potential guests.

    Funny you should say that, Chris–we have a big list of potential guests, and both Alan Ruck and Walton Goggins are on there! So hopefully we will have them on one day!
