00 Hello! P for Platinum!

It’s a Thursday record enjoy it on Sunday! Or whenever!

Jimmy’s got some car talk. I’m forbidden to participate or listen or listen to The Cars.

Tire talk! Jimmy’s got a sensor issue about his tire.

He has to drive 20 minutes over 50 miles an hour? Good luck in LA!

51 miles to ventura comedy!

The Crash Test Dummies ads started in 1985!

The mail is here! It’s packed well. Jason Meyers sent Jimmy a Kiss shirt!

Kiss has very few missteps and announcing the Kiss 2.0 at the final show was certainly one of them.

35 – Jimmy talks about doing a pilot where he was a banana and had to do mocap 20+ years ago.

Jimmy thanks Jason again!
