Today's theme: Back from Jury Duty!


The College Years is back from jury duty! Well, at least Jesse was around this episode's original broadcast date. Still, oh happy day. Listen in as Jesse welcomes many talented gentlemen during this episode. First up, Olde English pays the show a visit. At the time of the interview, the sketch group were still in Bard college but already performing at legitimate venues and credible festivals! Funny back then and still hilarious now, check out their work.


Following that, Jesse speaks with director, actor, and writer Paul Feig. As a director, he's done work on your favorite programmes, including Arrested Development, Bored to Death, and Mad Men. As an actor, you may remember him from the classice film, Heavyweights (note: Heavyweights is awesome). And as a demigod, you better know him from Freaks and Geeks.

Today's theme: Show People


To start the show, Jesse and guest-host Steve Palopoli interview Pearl of the Suicidegirls. While promoting her group's traveling burlesque show, Pearl explains to the guys why Suicidegirls is about more than just pictures of pretty girls. Note: very hard to find SFW links of that other stuff Pearl talks about due to risqué pictures of pretty girls. In any case, if attractive women is your cup of tea, check out the DVD of the tour.


Next, Jesse and Steve talk to the arguably just as NSFW Josh Kornbluth. (NSFW because you might guffaw while listening). Josh speaks about his one man show, Ben Franklin: Unplugged. Although that show has passed, you can still catch Josh in the film, Haiku Tunnel and at future performances.
