    Rating Auschwitz with Shahak Shapira

    Shahak Shapira joins us to discuss why Auschwitz has a 4.5 star rating on Yelp, having a grandfather who died in the Munich massacre, a Florida gun show, a wedding derailed by bees and ways we can use my co-host’s resemblance to Tim Dillon to get more listeners.

    Nobody Likes You with Konnie Metaxa

    Nobody Likes You with Konnie Metaxa

    NOTE: We did a little bit *too* much complaining in the original version of this episode so this is a slightly edited rerelease of last Tuesday’s interview. If you heard the original NO YOU DIDN’T.

    Konnie Metaxa (star of the short lived Greek version of Modern Family) joins the podcast to tell Gianmarco that nobody liked him in college and the downsides of your doctors giving you more boob than requested, drinking so much espresso that the barista alerts your friends, getting your stomach pumped, and whether going to school for acting is worth it.

    Straight to DVD with Josh Flitter

    Straight to DVD with Josh Flitter

    Josh Flitter (Ace Ventura Jr.) shares the downsides of starring in Ace Ventura Jr. when he was 13, being told it was going to be a major movie release only to have it go straight to DVD, the most horrifying animatronic panda of all time, what Jim Carrey told him when he found out about the film, and getting dragged online for ruining the Ace Ventura legacy. Gianmarco also reads out his girlfriend's astoundingly good surprise birthday present comedy set.

So good

So funny! Discovered him as a guest at another podcast and absolutely love his show! Him and Russell are so hilarious the interviews are sometimes deep but you don’t leave it feeling like trash somehow. Have a listen
