Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz has been best buds with Jeff for quite a while. They go back down memory lane to talk about working together on Jeff’s first pilot, their love of the word gazebo, and the heart ailment that made their bond grow stronger. Also, you won’t believe what Mitch’s immediate response was after he was recently asked by a stranger to engage in a fight.

Love at minute 55, Jeff says "Whatever it is, it's not going to be a podcast, I can tell you that."

Mitch's fight story is one of the funniest things I've heard in a long time.

I hadn't heard Mr. Hurwitz speak before. He actually sounds like he could of stepped right out of Arrested Development, what with his absolute need to have some form in the podcast.

I'm starting to think that telling funny stories is what he does.

Which would do better on Shark Tank, Shredstaurant or The Harpoonery?

I wish Mitch would have discussed his powerhouse performance on "PubLIZity" and "Ice Dating", but this was still a lot of fun.

He was much better used on Workaholics, he brought a ton of laughs from just being Mitch. If you aren't a fan of the show, its episode 2-02 "Dry Guys", he plays an HR running a substance abuse program
