We bumped the Grand Ole Opry from the Ryman lineup to present our own twisted, skewed comedy to the fine folks of Nashville, Tennessee. It was a momentous show, if only for the fact that we finally struck an accord with the Sky-Warriors, and put a climactic end to our centuries-long, unbelievably costly battle.

Oh my goodness -- a listener Q&A that was entertaining. Please, other podcasters, listen to these good good boys and learn from them.

Oh, I really want additional updates on Tarzan Peepums from now until the end of time.

Yes! Let's get the grandkids' perspectives on it.

I need to know what the tattoo looks like if it doesn't actually say Tarzan? Is it Johnny Weissmuller? Is it Disney Tarzan?

I am delighted that Clint goes by Peeps to his grandchildren.

It's genuinely impressive that they worked so hard to improve the segment from terrible to ok and then pushed on to make it actually good. Because people were prepared to forgive it, mostly, and that's the sort of thing that a lot of podcasters (understandably) let slide. I don't expect other podcasters to work as hard, because expecting people to bust their guts on what is usually, at best, a fairly low-margin side hustle wouldn't be fair. But I sure do appreciate it when people can and do!

Or skip it. Man it used to be bad. Even within the past year it’s prevented them from releasing live shows.

(TBH I think this is what prompted them to remaster the segment. Each time it costs them probably, what, at least ten total recording and production hours for a week they thought they wouldn’t have to do?)

I was at this live show! It was a lot of fun; they have great energy. They left out a bit about Travis having a dream that he thought should be an action-turned-police-procedural movie that was about a guy who can do super kicks and kicks somebody into pieces and then spends he rest of the movie dealing with the emotional consequences. Something like that. Would call it The Kick, I believe.

Sawbones and Shmanners were pretty great too. What a funny family!

Oh my god, I can't believe I missed a long, drawn-out reference to The Slap, how dare they cut that out
