This week’s Podwits Podcast find the boys hitting every nuance of the emotional spectrum. They are thrilled as J. Marcus relays his reaction to the recent Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode; they are stunned and appalled over the breaking news regarding actor Stephen Collins; and they reminisce on word that the era of Saturday morning cartoons has […]
