Listener comments: If you have any suggestions or comments, please let us know. We’ve got plenty of voicemail from fans to listen and respond to, but you’ll hear that in a fresh, separate show.

    I can’t believe you guys were dis-ing Red Sonya. When she called Falcon a real man it was just the moral boast all us fat ugly guys armed with plastic prehistoric bone clubs needed.

    And yes, Michael J Fox is still the Anti-Elvis.

  2. Andrea says

    Sorry I am behind on all the shows this week- its actually good you didn’t do voicemail or wingin it. I would be drowning in a pile of podcasts otherwise.

    Evo I think you did a damn fine job filling Summer’s shoes. You could never be Summer because you are a man and therefore flawed (just kidding folks- no hate mail please). Evo you know I love you.

    I totally have to see that 1 man Star Wars show. Although the concept of the frisbee game that spawned it intriques me as well. I think my brothers and I could make a drinking game out of that.

    Clash of the Titans reamke? Uh hell no!!! Can we start a letter writing campaign to have them NOT do that?
