It's enough to make you yell "The League fucking rules, dude!" Enjoy!
Episode 101 — THUNDER!

Every week, like literally every single week, I crack up after Elizabeth reads the Oprah episode description, pauses and says "...Thoughts?"
By the way, I just started watching The League this past season and absolutely love it. If you haven't checked it out yet, fellow listeners, please do. It's easy to hop right in without having followed the series, and you don't have to know anything about fantasy leagues to follow.
Also, loving the Meg Myers songs on the episodes!

I also recently started watching The League. I was hesitant because I don't follow football at all, but love the cast so much I decided to try one epi and was hooked. I ended up watching the entire series over a couple of days. So great. I love all of the Duplass bros' mumblecore films and have had a crush on Mark since The Puffy Chair. When Mark first spoke about balancing fatherhood, I immediately thought of the bonus feature on The Baghead DVD where he and Jay both held their babies while discussing directing. I was so happy to hear him mention this himself. Major props to Totally Laime for booking such an awesome guest who I haven't heard on any other pod.

The League is one of the funniest shows on right now, FX really did a good job picking up shows done by amazing comedians, I mean giving Louis C.K. a basic cable show was a bold move that paid off. I'm not a football fan at all, but the league has shown me that fantasy football is the equivalent of jock Dungeons and Dragons, so the geek in me is now very interested.
