Big Jim Willig returns. This is both good news and bad news. Good news for the show, because Jim & Byron is a strange, wonderful pairing that mostly works, sometimes, kinda. But it’s bad news because that means Jim got fired, and not only did that happen, he was deprived a catered meal, and a had to ride a bus with a serial pancake murderer. Speaking of grievous injury – Byron discovers his ear will likely swell up and fall off DURING the podcast, Jim learns what a Chud is, and Byron has to judge a Christian Gray lookalike contest, even though nobody really knows what that fictional character is supposed to look like, since, you know, he’s completely fictional and doesn’t have a face. Or a body. A hectic, hyped up return to normal. Ish.

So I have a question to follow up with Mike Russel Tomorrow:

To commemorate the ending of this show would he be willing to put together another comic featuring the current cast of the show?

I think it would be a good way to memorialize the ending of this long running media presence.

I’d feel weird asking him that.

1) we didn’t ask him to do the first one, he just kinda did it.
2) it’s a LOT of work, and he’s already a really busy man.

That said, he did say he’s already got an idea for the final show, but he didn’t say what it was, or whether he’s actually implementing that idea.

Id understand either way. It would just be kinda cool.

What Jim said, about the not getting burned out – that. I think you exaggerate the number of listeners actually listen every day and thoroughly enjoy it. Five days a week for about five years and I hadn’t yet hit a point of being tired of it. I’m glad he got to get that thought out eventually.

Really fun to have Jim back, too.

Sorry to hear Jim got fired, but having him & Byron back together was EPIC! Too bad it’s only for 3 more shows. I haven’t listened to Wednesday’s show yet, but will next. I hope Leia is a good fit with Courtenay. I liked her with Byron so hopefully it’s another good thing. Thanks for the laughs today!

Oh, and totally agree with Jim. There will be a big hole when this show ends. Cort and Bobby will never admit it, but it is true.
