My Thoughts: At a certain point you get the feeling Joe says to himself “oh, this girl is crazy” and that’s when this podcast gets a little more entertaining than what came before it. Pretty dry up until that point. I also think this is the first episode where you can clearly tell that Joe is reading questions that he has prepared in advance.
