My Thoughts: Jim does a lot of voices and characters. Joe talks about the same stuff he always talks about, like gorillas, alligators, hunting, bears, lions, vegans, and factory farming. This podcast would likely be better to watch rather than listen to, just to see Jim’s face as he’s doing his characters.
