Episode 167 – Besieged by the Giggle Fits f/Chris Haley

Sims was away at Comic-Con this week, but we’re still doing a big old show with Chris Haley of the Gravity Falls Gossiper podcast and Let’s Be Friends Again! He and Matt tear down the format of the show to have a freewheelin’ conversation about impressions, Bill Hader, wrestling (more than you would ever think), art in comics, whether box office should matter for movie fans, game shows, comic convention crowds, and a lot more! Not discussed (at length): Connecticon and Van Halen, even though we say we’re getting to those. Plus, Sims does check in from the con!
