Lonnie Milsap, comic artist and possessor of a surprising bass-baritone, sits down to talk about the fading art of the Sunday comic strip. Far Side or Calvin & Hobbes? We all weigh in. Will has to explain to Sean what X-Mas is and, by extension, who Jesus was. We all make plans for the coming Apocalypse. Hopefully you are all around to listen to this episode and our effort wasn't in vain. Sorry about the echoes and audio quality - I blame the Mayans…and new equipment. It will get worked out in the "future." Thank you for an amazing 2012, see you all next year!

Jake Weisman of the comedy troupe "Women" and the acclaimed "The Morning After…" podcast sits down with the dynamic duo. He tells us about his unplanned start into comedy and how comedians, like porn stars, are often misunderstood and have more in common than you think. We discuss the recently released video of him utterly destroying a heckler on stage….and then things get weird. Why can't Jake sit through a Lord of the Rings movie? Is Mel Brooks the funniest man ever? What classic 80 rock-comedy needs to become a Broadway musical? And why is TIME magazine so bad? Answers abound, but confusion is still king.

Elia Petridis, director of Ernest Borgnine's final film, The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez, tells us what it was like to direct a Hollywood legend - and how to pronounce Vicente. Kubrick is big in LA - what lessons did he teach us? What film would you like to watch before you die? Are porn stars people like you and me? And why is Sean strangely obsessed with 18th century French porcelain? All this….and MORE in the latest episode.
