Awe man…sogood ,

Thumbs up

Started with Howard the duck. I have tried to watch this movie before gave up thinking I was missing vital information but after listening to this podcast realized it’s not going make sense and just enjoy the movie.

Paul is too annoying

June and Jason, great. But Paul is so in the way. And the way he reads the ads is the absolute worst part. He is funny, well adjusted, but seems super bossy

Awesome 2235 ,

Congratulations Paul!!!

Congrats are clearly in order for Paul, a newly minted New York Times bestseller. When you finish reading his book, pick up a copy of mine, The not so wild adventures by Johnathan Freeman on Amazon. You’re gonna love it!!!
