Tiny calves, the wig, and beach poop are back! After they try to break a tongue twister world record, they welcome host of Literary Death Match Adrian Todd Zuniga to tell us about how Literary Death Match works, the meaning of brain float, and his new goal of memorizing a poem every month for the rest of his life. Plus, Adrian gets some writing advice from Yo, Teach himself. YES! YES! YES!

Todd Zuniga's amazing by his lonesome, but it's awesome that literature has him as an ambassadors. Day-and-date, day-and-date, et cetera.

This episode had me wwWWALKING ON AIR! Teach, a riddle/poem, What's Nuts?, and, dare I say it, America's NEW Favorite Fun Game? Amazing.

A useful way to remember how to pronounce Tig's full name is to think of a "Tig" as a really special sandwich that usually comes with a special, spicy sauce called "Taro". And I like the sandwich, but not the sauce, so when I order the sandwich, it's "Tig, no Taro."

What a great episode! Fast talking, Futurini, Teach, great guest, and a mention of me and my book!

Huge thanks to Aaron, David, Tig and Kyle for mentioning "Getting My First Hug" (available on Amazon.com, all profits go to autism-related charity). If anyone would like to see me talking about the book, check out the link below.

I have to go practice my fast talking now.
Welp, that's been (plug and) comment.

Forgot to mention it earlier, but Old Seinfeld is a great new character.

Todd Zuniga used to head 2 sports video game podcasts. The Sports Anomaly and 4th String. I don't know dick about sports or sports video games, but Todd was endlessly entertaining and insane. The final episode of the Sports Anomaly is pure madness. It's 3.5 hours and includes a Star Wars draft. If you're interested:

2nd episode down from the top. Episode 163.

I think Night Guy would be a perfect spokesman for NatureBox.

Todd reminded me of a 16 year old girl that declares herself ugly just to hear her friends declare she is pretty. "I'm old" (no you are not), "I'm not a good guest" (yes you are), "I'm not smart" (yes you are), "I'm not funny" (yes you are), "I'm so busy" (because you are successful!). I hope Kyle was just being polite when he said he would have Todd back.
