In this episode, Tyler and David discuss the career of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, as well as Super Bowl commercials.
In this episode, we struggled to figure out what the line “I’m never ever sick at sea” is from. David’s hunch- that it is probably a Gilbert and Sullivan lyric- was correct. It is from the “H.M.S. Pinafore”.
What’s your favorite Indian story? Mine is the certain band of Choctaw who heard about the suffering of the Irish potato famine, sold all their worldly possessions because they were being made to march West to a reservation, earned about $170 on that liquidation, and charmed the Irish government by sending it to famine relief for Irish peasants.

Ever since episode 358 I can’t download or listen on the site or on iTunes. It looks like no one else is having trouble but all my other podcasts are just working fine.
That is odd. If anyone else is having this problem, please let us know.
I had this problem recently but it was with all of my subscribed podcasts, I solved this by changing the download path to a specific iTunes folder. I’m not computer savvy, this was after many hours of tinkering and blasphemy. Good luck old sport.
Great episode, guys! I’m looking forward to the artist profile with Amy Nicholson about Tom Cruise which your promised us.
