Episode 21 - Pistol Shrimps Radio

I head a joke told to me at a bar once that went a little like this: What do you get when you take 2 improvisors who know absolutely nothing about sports, a couple of microphones, a women's recreational basketball league and an occasional guest star/friend of one of the improvisors who sits in and assists with calling each game they attend? Why, Pistol Shrimps Radio of course! Confused, I asked the person what the hell kinda joke that was to which they responded: ain't no joke, friend....

Episode 16 - Dead Pilots Society

This week, Reina and I listened to John Hodgman's excellent script titled "Only Child" that was brought back from the dead (i.e. lost in the sea of pilot scripts that never get made) but Ben Acker and Andrew Reich! Fantastic table read performances, hilariously told semi-autobiographical story about Hodgman's life, you will not want to miss doing the homework and then listening to The Queen and I discuss our reactions.
