  • welcomed break for sure. and why even the initial break for boys of summer? look around — the last thing the podcast world needs is more of the same white dudes. can’t wait for the series to be over. 

    • Sorry to hear you’re not a fan- I’ve enjoyed hearing more about the early lives of some of the great gentlemen I know, including people like Oscar Nunez, Phil LaMarr, and Danny Pudi. Not sure how they fit into the “white dudes of podcasting” category. Anyway, I’ll be back to ladies soon! 

  • The energy level in this episode got me all amped up, it was so fun, and I love that you had someone scream out, “lumberjacks” while talking about NAU. :) 

  • OK, for a second there in the braces discussion, Janet (taking a funny accent) sounded exactly like my dentist, who’s Polish.

    And yes, we should all follow Captain Archibald Haddock (from Hergé’s Tintin) lead in terms of variety of insults (and swear words). I’m particularly fond of “laundry-ship admiral”, among others.
