The idea of Munch Squad ending fills me with sorrow.

"I'm just a guy, in a ghost costume, standing before a group of people whose opinions I don't respect, asking if y'all wanna transform this into a Boo Club, because if not I am gonezo."

i'm sure if munch squad "ends" it'll still be pulled out at live shows, like haunted doll watch is. i definitely think the bit is getting kind of stale, and the thing i enjoy most about it is the theme music anyway and i'm sure he'll find some new way to interrupt griffin with a new bit soon haha

(though i thought this week's munch squad was phenomenal and would be okay with less munch squad if they were all as ridiculous as "Happy Taste Good" is)

To me, Munch Squad would be fresh as long as there are ridiculous garbage food PR stunts, which in this country would be in perpetuity, but if they say it's getting tired, I trust them.

Cager is even funnier-looking than I thought he would be. I thought they were describing a big cloaked dude. The "Washington Generals" was the name of my K-12 school's team, and yet no one ever mentioned these guys (which, why would you, I guess).

Wow this episode went some places and I loved it.
I was happy to hear that munch Squad might be ending. I don't dislike it but I like it more when they just answer questions and talk to each other. I tend to dislike podcasts where someone is reading from something they prepared (even though Justin's reading voice is much less annoying than most, it's still a reading voice). I feel like it used to not be every week and that was fine; like you don't have to kill it but just space them out.

Also during the whole Globe Trotters bit I was like damn if they didn't name the episode after this there must be something crazy coming up and there was. But I dunno not as crazy as the word journey that Griffin took us on with the basketball baby.

Yeah I was picturing Cager being a cartoon character and not somebody's nephew after they gave him $15 to make a Mankind costume.

What Adventure Zone character did Griffin kind-of sound like when he was doing the "cakes and creams" bit? It was very familiar to me but I couldn't place it, so I'm thinking it was a TAZ NPC.

Haha yes I thought it sounded like his NPC voice, not like anyone in particular though maybe a bit like Magic Brian but without the german.

It reminded me of Winthrop and Muffy, but younger.
