The perfect excuse to use poop emoji. This podcast was recorded live on stage before we recorded episode 22 at the Comedy Café Berlin, so it sounds like we recorded it in an empty theater because we did. Josh regales Noah with a horrific story about finding something in the stairway of his apartment building. If anyone knows of apartments for rent in Kreuzberg, let Josh know. See us live! "piffle!" is recorded live at the Comedy Café Berlin in Berlin, Germany (http://comedycafeberlin.com)....
