  • what the-? Where are all the comments? This was AWESOME! After listening to pretty much every episode of Chris Hardwick’s podcast, I thought I’d give you guys a try, and Amber Tamblyn is always intriguing. So this was my first taste of PMC. You have made a new fan on this historic day. I can’t believe you guys are plagued with the Empire Carpets ads, too. I only pray that you don’t get the J.G. Wentworth commercials. They have driven me to the brink of madness. Anyway, I’m-a gon’ go listen to the rest of your episodes while I work. I am currently animating a podcast for comedian Rebecca Corry. Check out 2 Manly Ladies on YouTube. Thanks for giving me something NEW to listen to!
