    Fantastic episode!!! Perhaps my favorite episode yet. Cole and Vanessa are right at home with Mike, Kevin, and Bill and much hilarity ensues. Perhaps the only bad thing is that I listened to this while at work and I got many puzzled looks when I erupted into laughter listening to one of Vanessa’s questions in particular.

    Great work as usual, ya cool kids! The podcasts just get better and better!!

    Thanks Cole, Vanessa, and you wonderful Rifftrax fellas for such an entertaining hour. Can’t wait for Rifftrax Live OR the next PMC podcast!

    All the Tom Waits impersonations (with bonus Shania riffs) made me laugh until I turned three shades of blue and passed out. As I came to, I knew it was proof that this podcast is truly like no other. Everyone was just lovely and it was an entirely wonderful episode. Thanks a bunch for doing it.

    Thank you for the first interesting interview with Mike and Kevin and Bill in a long time.
    You actually sounded like you were familiar with the show and the work these guys have done. Most interviews sound like they were taken off a fact sheet drawn up by a the office intern.
    You asked original questions and explored topics fans wanted to hear about.

    Keep up the good work.

    Love, love, LOVE the podcast.
    You guys are hilarious, sharp, and GENIUS at getting wonderful guests.

    Vanessa, what is that we can see on your chest and shoulder?
    Not that I was looking down your blouse or anything…um… *ahem*
    Could be a necklace…could be a tattoo?
    Yes, I need a new set of glasses.

    BTW (IMO), Wendel is not terribly perceptive if he thinks your questions sound “office intern”.

    You guys are really doing a great job!!

    It is indeed a necklace.

    I do have a tattoo, but not on my chest. A chest piece would be fierce though.

    How did you get John McCain to pose in the top photo?
