Finally reached the end of the original run of Thrilling Adventure Hour (haven't listened to anything after, though).

I now find myself in the rare company of "people excited to see Mark Evan Jackson or Padget Brewster in anything."

I believe that the rest of that company is made up of "Mark Evan Jacksons mother" and "anyone who watched Harvey Birdman"

Radiolab's episode about Oliver Sipple opens with the account of the lady who tried to assassinate Pres. Ford that he stopped. That's definitely an unusual choice.

I expect you already know if you want to hear this or not.
Listened to all of this on a car trip this weekend (there's only two full length (half hour) episodes so far, so you can get caught up in no time at all). Amazing story, good production quality. Love it exactly as much as I expected, even though I went into it knowing absolutely nothing about EVE. A+, I want more now! So much so that I interrupted my current read to pick up the Empires of EVE book.

It's good. It reads just like an interesting history book.

I half-listened (noisy environment) to everything, too, but I don't think I can continue. It seems unjust that some villains profiled either left on their own terms or continue to have a good time.

Marc Evan Jackson has recurring roles in Adventure Time and DuckTales. I mean, you don't SEE him, but still.

I didn't see him in this either.

He's had a million-billion minor roles in a lot of things, as it turns out. Sparks is just, by far his most prominent role.

I listened to the first episode of this today and teared up at a couple points. Instant sub.

Chapo this week focuses on the glories of Steven Seagal, and on his opus "Me Want the Punani"
