  • One Hundred Forty-fifth Episode

    Our shows continue to find new international fans, which is supremely cool. We're charting all over the world! The Pendant Shakespeare's "Double Falsehood" gets a premiere date, we've got exclusive previews of "Seminar" episode 105 and... The Pendant Shakespeare's "Double Falsehood" act I (that premiere date is pretty soon, hey?), and Jordan and Andrew Hackley discuss finishing off characters, tentacle noises, and robo-lovin'! Also Susan gets somewhat location-ist, our apologies. De-brain with us, won't you?
