Show Notes

On May 4, celebrate National Bird Day by watching The Big Year. It should come as no surprise that our favorite bird is the chicken, but the turkey is a close second.

The live TV Guidance Counselor episode with Eugene Mirman and Jon Glaser is available here for your listening pleasure. And for your viewing pleasure, the Slipnutz:
