Plus, the new book Runnin' Leg: Gator's Guide to Getting Sex promises to get you laid. That can't be all bad.
And then there is this week's guest: esteemed cryptozoologist John Rhodes who devotes his research to proving the existence of reptilian lizard people living beneath the earth's surface. You know what? You can't do much better than that.
So maybe there still is hope for this show, and with your continued support, we might be able to resuscitate it yet.
