I know I promised an Epic Film Guys guest spot this week, but sometimes schedules don’t work out the best. I get into why I’ve got 2 shows that dropped this week, and I share my experience from just a few days ago with my 4 year old and a scorpion. I’ve also got an SMF News break from Mike Jolitz and a very full news segment on my own with a lot of tales of YouTube doctoring. And finally in recommended listening, I’ve got a very funny straightforward movie podcast featuring 2 movie professionals from Australia, “We Watched A Thing.”
