This week, our episode is live at Marines Memorial Theater from SF Sketchfest!
Brianne, a dog trainer, owns a small poodle named Shilo. She likes to take Shilo everywhere – the bus, classes at SF State, even restaurants. But this annoys her boyfriend, Zach, who thinks that Shilo's constant company is annoying, saying that it's representative of Brianne's attitude that the rules don't apply to her. Does Shilo need a shorter leash? Only Judge John Hodgman can decide.
We're also joined by past expert witness JOHN DARNIELLE of The Mountain Goats for a truly special musical set.
Photos of Shilo
The demand for photos of Shilo has been overwhelming...and here you are! Special thanks to Brianne for sending these in.
Zach, Brianne, and Shilo
Note the Rush t-shirt (and Jesse's spiffy bailiff outfit)
