    I can't remember whether it was on an episode or her social media but, when listeners raised this issue a few years ago, June released a statement that essentially said "I am honored that you all care and are speaking up on my behalf but everything's fine!" June has only grown in her power since then, and definitely knows how to shut people down with devastating precision when necessary. I get the feeling that tight editing and the lack of body language sometimes make the live shows seem more frenetic than they really are.

    All this talk of pinball leads me to the only fact on pinball I know which is apparently it was illegal for a while because people thought it was gambling? From Wikipedia "Pinball was banned beginning in the early 1940s until 1976 in New York City.[41] New York mayor Fiorello La Guardia was responsible for the ban, believing that it robbed school children of their hard earned nickels and dimes.[41][42] La Guardia spearheaded major raids throughout the city, collecting thousands of machines. The mayor participated with police in destroying machines with sledgehammers before dumping the remnants into the city's rivers" There's also a pretty interesting Slate article about it. Apparently it was banned in Oakland until 2014?! http://www.slate.com/blogs/atlas_obscura/2015/05/29/pinball_was_banned_in_new_york_until_a_single_miraculous_shot_convinced.htm this and I was always very confused by the rock opera Tommy I sometimes listened to with my grandfather as a kid. I'm still not sure what exactly was going on there, I was very busy eating my Friday McDonald's ( we traditionally got McDonald's every Friday)

    I think it's the energy of the live crowd that causes it. Jason feeds off that, and is a more anarchic perfomer, so you don't know what he's gonna say, what he's gonna do, and because of that, will just blurt out a line there and then. Which is why June is great for the live shows, because she's that calming influence. So, she might get interrupted now and then, but she'll bring it back down, to make Jason much more impactful. To put it into music terms, if this were a Metallica concert, Jason's "Battery", frenetic, fast paced, blugeoning power, June's "Nothing Else Matters", a nice ballad but has a punch when it needs it. If I were assign one to Paul, he's "Enter Sandman", it's not a Metallica show without "Enter Sandman"

    On the topic of Pinocchio asking his dad to make him a girlfriend ( would that also make her his sister?) I think he kind of has to go with Geppeto's Real Doll service because can you imagine having to ask a human woman , honestly any partner, to (as June would say "take on" all Pinocchio's shit? That's just cruel. Better to have him meet someone else who understands some of his shared traumas. Or I don't know, crazy idea, maybe now that your human spend time with your family before you go off to fuck an American Girl Doll store, you hornt up freak of sorcery.

    So who exactly is Gepetto making all these puppets for? Is there a booming puppet/ marionette economy? Like besides that one evil puppet rival who is he selling to?. I feel like he's either hoarding those puppets in his shop and if anyone tried to buy one he would have an emotional breakdown or something OR he's a crazed old man who keeps making puppets to fill his sad emptiness and frankly because there's no fucking SSRI 's in this world and I'm not even sure Lexapro could save this fucker. Like even of he didn't seem to be deeply depressed or ... Something, no sane well adjusted person had that many puppets and he honestly has them for no reason which is even wose. Like he's not a puppeteer. He just.. Makes them and that is a truly terrifying hobby even without *vague gesture at everything going on with this mess of a man* Honestly is Gepetto alone terrifying? Like we all agree he has to notify people when he.moved into their neighborhood right?

    Time for another theory. Maybe this whole movie was an origin story for Home Improvement. Gepetto managed to craft a real boy with his high quality tools, and set up a DIY empire. Gepetto passed away, and left his tool empire to a puppet that is the closest thing he has to a son, the company ended up getting sold to an American company called Binford. However, the deal hinged on one caveat, Pinocchio wanted a new father figure. After being adopted by various people within the Binford corporate stucture and eventually, the responibility fell to company pitchman, Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor. However, things started going awry when Tim met his wife, and they had two sons, that's where the problems started, because the sons were getting older, but their "brother" wasn't, and they started asking questions, so Pinnochio decided to fuck off out of it before this whole house of cards came crashing down, and then he went on to voice Simba in the Lion King. So, what I'm saying is, everything that stars Jonathan Taylor Thomas is a long-running, nightmarish Pinnochio franchise.

    There’s also the one where he becomes a sad wine drunk called “Pinot-cchio.”

    There's actually another version of movie. However, in this one, the puppet overthrows a South American government, and heads up a fascistic military dictatorship. It's called "Pinochet-o"

    Speaking of pinball machines, I saw a Metallica one, and I thought "Wow, that's pretty cool, I might get that", thinking "What do they cost? £500?" As it turns out, they're like £7000

    One thing that I thought was funny that wasn't touched on in the episode was at the beginning of the whale scene. When Pinocchio enters, Geppetto says that Pinocchio looks so skinny and asks if he has eaten. First, it's been like 3 hours since he last seen him, it's not like he would be withering away. And secondly, he's a puppet. He doesn't lose weight. My only thought is that maybe he was referring to the bullet holes after being shot. But that didn't make him skinny. P.s. loved the show and it was great meeting you.
