    Ep 97: Eye of the Tiger King

    Should you be spending your isolation time binge-watching “The Tiger King?” The only reasonable way to find out is to hear Paula and Adam’s review of “Rocky III.” No, really. Also, you can bid on a stone from Rosa Parks’ shoe, and if that’s not enough.... MAILBAG!

    Ep 96: What podcast has Alex Trebek AND Carol Burnett?

    No, really. Alex Trebek is our guest and Carol Burnett is our surprise caller. Alex gives Paula sage advice about her new project: Hosting a game show! Speaking of games, Carol is just hoping to win our 100th Caller Contest (which would be awesome as far as Adam is concerned!).

Poor Adam

I feel bad for Adam Felber. He has to sit quiet when Paula goes down crazy rants. He has to go through the stupid 100th caller contest. There is a lady that wants to sext him? Someone needs to rescue Adam from Paula.

Loving the very second!

I could listen to Paula and the gang all day if I could! They keep me laughing through the whole episode!

Best Podcast ever. I just love the 100 caller contest
