The best revelation of this podcast is that significant portions of ‘Six Feet Under Par: A Chip Driver Mystery’ were actually written.

That and how Ben Koldyke spent a lot of time watching the Kavanaugh hearings when preparing for the role as Brent.

NBC is falling down so much on merch for this show. Why there isn't a Chip Driver book or t-shirts or commemorative cactus pots or marbles or Lonely Girl Margarita Mix is such a mystery to me.
