The fish are getting bigger!  Samantha Powell joins us for a wild night in Vermont in episode 1.18, “Caroline and the Ex-Wife”!  Grab a frosty Snapple (or Fruitopia, we don’t judge) and your best flammable windbreaker as we discuss Dollar Store Tony Danza, the dubious origins of Jamba Juice, Six Feet Under: Passaic, and acceptable lengths to go for a really good cheesesteak.  We’re all friends of Mariska here!
