    Ep.#277 - Catwoman

    We reached into our archives, all the way back to 2017, to bring you this performance taped at the Now Hear This podcast festival. Elliott's not here (something about it being "too far to fly across the whole country for an unpaid gig, waaah waaah waaaah), but we've replaced him with guest host Ronny Chieng of Crazy Rich Asians and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Did we hold onto this so long, just to wait until Ronny was a BIG MOVIE STAR? Perhaps!

    We don't usually editorialize on our own show, but... this is a good one, guys.

Meanwhile, Stuart explains the secret history of the Zales shadow, Elliott reveals God's secret message to us via olives, and Dan suggests you just cover yourself in

    Ep. #274 - Gotti

    This one topped the lists of the worst movies of 2018, and it was so bad Dan barely understood what the fuck was happening, which you can tell, based on how little he can bring himself to say. Luckily, Elliott makes up for it by never shutting up. We discuss Gotti. Meanwhile, Stuart explains what it's like to play a game with Dan, Elliott starts a new podcast devoted to the human body's holes, and as always, when it comes to letters, Dan is a consummate professional.
