    RE: Touring Artists

    Dear Pennies and Pallers,
    It’s just the two of us - no producer, no engineer - and that's part of the reason we only got to one letter...but it's a good one! Bob wrote in asking about the logistics surrounding the life of a touring artist.
    We also talk about dudes at dinner, bachelorette parties at comedy shows, Friday Night Lights, and more!
    We wish you well, sincerely,
    Your Pen Pals Daniel Van Kirk and Rory Scovel

Still Funny

Hi Guys,

I love your podcast. I am a Penny trying to be a Paller. I just finished 2019 #cuntygrandma. You both sounded so hopeful for 2020 on your Christmas episode. I guess I’ll find out how it went for you. #growtheshow.

Thanks for the laughs,
Rojopo
