    Absolutely a terrific interview. Frank is a lot of fun. This is my introduction to the site, I can’t believe I haven’t had a chance to check it out before.

    Hey look, more podcasts. Time to clear off my schedule today and take a listen. Thanks guys!

    Frank is a gem. How can you not love this guy? He wouldn’t even eat his own cat. That’s solid proof of his character. Cats are delicious! Thanks Frank and @pmcpodcast!

    What a fun interview. An hour of Frank and it just seemed to fly by. Great stories and insights too. (I do think it’s strange that the first Hanna-Barbera character I thought of was Jonny Quest. I loved that show.)
    Vanessa sometimes the confines of the world you develop your questions in is a little scary, but keep ’em coming.

    Great interview…I’m glad you haven’t found a guest willing to eat his or her pets to avoid a goofy physical attribute.

    And, just because, my favorite Hanna-Barbera characters are Huckleberry Hound & Quick Draw McGraw.

    I’ve also made it known to my friends if they even think about seeing the Yogi Bear movie, they’re dead to me. Dead I say!!!

    I love it when an interview gets Frank talking about standup and movie history. He’s got so much knowledge to share when you get him going! And his answer to the beagle ears question was delightful.

    I was always a Snagglepuss fan myself. Exit, stage left even!

    Fabulous as always. Consistently the most listenable, enjoyable podcast, well… probably EVER ! I’ve always loved more in-depth interviews and an hour is perfect. Also, with two hosts/interviewers it mixes things up enough to keep thing even more fresh and interesting.

    I love any interview where Frank gets to do what he does best — share his vast knowledge of movies and television. Vanessa and Cole always do an excellent job of asking questions that allow their guests to direct the conversation and offer their opinions naturally and this podcast is no exception.

    I’ve really been enjoying the MST3K alumni podcasts and, if at all possible, I’d love to hear one with J. Elvis Weinstein.

    Keep up the excellent work!!

    So wonderful. What Frank said about Albert Brooks put an especially big smile on my face.

    As I remember it at first it was CTV: The Comedy Network before it became Comedy Central. I remember Alien from LA. The everyone from Atlantis had thick Austrian accents.
