Great stuff

Hey guys, love the show, the format, the guest list and the authenticity. The 3 of you are sharp, witty, acerbic, tack on funny. You play very well in the sandbox together as it were.....as in not much in the way of talking over each other, or trying to out do each other, which is annoyingly prevalent in many lesser podcasts.
***FYI only, not to bring it down, but I did feel you over-gushed (not sure that even a term, so feel free to thumb me down on its use here) with Melissa McCarthy and Dax Shepherd. It’s probably because you are just nice people and grateful and they are friends and colleagues, which I get.
I personally would love to hear more anecdotes and insights from your amazing careers as well as your guests’ of course, especially when you discuss your fun moments and issues at work, and the funny, serious, even humiliating and/or critical moments that helped you to get to your successes. Real Hollywood insights are a great discussion point.
I would have thought pulling 3 superstars together to do something like this would be nearly impossible, what with workloads, and possibly egos and massaging of connections etc., but you are doing it and doing it smashingly. Congratulations. Great stuff.
