Recorded LIVE in DC on January 6! About 700 people showed up to this one and it was a BLAST and a half. Also, when we found out MAGFest (Music and Gaming Fest) was going on at the same time we were able to wrangle some special guests who may be relevant to your nerd interests: John Patrick Lowrie ("Sniper" from Team Fortress 2) and his lovely wife Ellen McLain whom you Aperture Lab fans might know as her lovably evil alter-ego GLaDOS. Also, a Portal theme may have been played live...

Connie Britton talks about transitioning from the sitcom world to shows you may have heard of like "Friday Night Lights" and "American Horror Story". AND she's a twin. PLUS she spent two years in the bureaucratic brambles of the African adoption system to get her son, Yobi. ALSO, she is truly hilarious. Now that I think about it, she may be perfect.

David talks Mr. Show, Arrested Development, Todd Margaret, getting stuck on cruiseships and the whimsy of Squagles. He was also very patient and kind considering that Chris & Jonah were 30 minutes late. IT WASN'T THEIR FAULT. But it's still not okay. Stupid Chris and stupid Jonah. Pfffft.
