    Okay, Zac Efron aside, this is a very good episode. Laraine is so interesting.

    A good one but not my favorite

    Seriously I would listen to you guys talk even without a guest, you’re amazing! Plus I’m pretty sure Vanessa has become my new favorite person…well top ten, at the least. Great guest choice, would have liked a little more early SNL talk, but I think Cole made a great point about how people romanticize the early years only because we’ve seen the “best ofs.” I’m a comedy nerd, so I love when you have comedians on, mostly because usually they have a big personality so its fun to listen to. Great podcast, I only listen to a few but yours and Chris Hardwick”s Nerdist podcast are the best I’ve come across so far.

    Oh my gosh, thank you all for the amazing comments- especially you, Marie. Yours is best. I mean, they’re all GOOD, but that one is REALLY good. And James wins for most pointedly lukewarm. And Valorie wins for writing my darling’s name. Shawn, you are effusive AND grateful, so that’s awesome. Janelle, I heart you.
