Jimmy’s got a little change in his pocket.

Eliot is talking too much. Jimmy talks about having to hide and avoid a former neighbor who fancied himself a comedy writer. Now he is apparently between 88 and dead.

Jimmy paid $525 for that apartment.

Hello Mad Dog! He is a very polarizing character. Jimmy agrees with the haters.

So long Mad Dog! Oh wait, he’s back.

Jimmy is STRONGLY considering a Chicago based podcast. Matt is apparently out.

30 – Matt blew the big Chicago announcement. Jimmy needs a super fan to co-host the show with him. Eliot’s hand goes up, Jimmy says he is about to murder someone. Eliot thinks Matt should be the guy who learns about Chicago. Matt is strongly against it.

Jimmy was Edgy man! His joke was about River Phoenix flopping around like a fish outside the viper room.

Rich wants Jimmy Pardo: On The Edge one night only.

Kurt Cobain died in April of 94. Jimmy and Jennifer (Aniston?!) broke up in August.

Matt is popping ANOTHER almond. Jimmy describes him like a seal eating a fish.

40 – Adjusting Rich’s mics. I’m fine! I dislike my smile, everyone seems to think I have a nice smile! I’ll use it more often.

Wii U Console! http://smile.amazon.com/Nintendo-Wii-Mario-Luigi-Deluxe-U/dp/B00G0OYHCW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1400182427&sr=8-1&keywords=wii+u+console

Rich doesn’t have a Wii U. He has a PS3 and an XBOX One.

45 – Jimmy thinks Rich is the right guy for the podcast. He’s not music minded though so maybe he’s the wrong guy!

Jimmy goes through co-host requirements.

New Chicago album July 8!

50 – Who actually takes criticism well?! Rich wonders if Jimmy had had any negative twitter interactions. Only twice apparently. so far, he had to block two people. Rich gives his recent musings on twitter.

Jimmy asks if he’s okay if he doesn’t consider him for the Chicago podcast.

Jimmy shoots Chicago trivia at Rich, asking various Chicago album titles. Only one album is not numbered. 12 – Hot Streets.

55 – Jimmy wants it to go back to the old days where you only saw them on Match Game.

Rich is not in the Chicago podcast but Jimmy confirms AUDIO ONLY.

Matt asks what Jimmy will call it. Eliot suggests Chicago Infinity. “sigh shit.” – Rich. Jimmy hits the floor laughing.

Matt suggests The Chicago Podcast Authority. Jimmy is on board with that.

Matt does his Elmo impression and explains that is the only way Charlie will eat. Jimmy to Oliver: “Keep it up and I’m gonna spank you.” Oliver: LAUGHS.

We’ve all been spanked apparently.

75 – Rich and his family now use damage as a swear after his daughter used it like damnit. One day Rich went off on his daughter because she said “I forgot my ship.” Rich thought she said Shit and he instantly yelled at her. He realized he was wrong and it was “hugs all day.” He then had to teach her about the word shit.

Jimmy and Rich both enjoyed Neighbors. He and Danielle saw it together to beat the heat. He thought the first ten minutes were a little “written” but there was a lot of funny.

80 – Nashville is back for 22 episodes next season. Jimmy talks about the General Hospital Nurses Ball. http://general-hospital.wikia.com/wiki/The_Nurses’_Ball

This year: http://community.ew.com/2014/05/11/nurses-ball-sonny-busted-luke-tracy-wed/

This years was CRINGE-WORTHY and UNBEARABLE. Jimmy had to fast forward through most of it.

Jimmy recounts the events of the Nurses Ball. Including the appearance of Player.

Baby Come Back originated in 1977. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_Come_Back_(Player_song)

There was an ALIEN on GH in 80s. Jimmy fine with that. Infurated that a 5 year old knows who Player is.

Jimmy knows it is wrong to hate children but he hates this kid on the show. The boyfriend of Emma. Jimmy does not understand why this is happening.

Jimmy now considering a GH podcast. The General Hospital Podcast Authority.

Jimmy calls Matt dick lick and dick fuck in the same rant about the Chicago Podcast.

90 – Jimmy doesn’t have the energy for another podcast but he really wants to do it.

Rich does OnStar commercials still.

Rich is considering going all electric with his new car. Maybe a Leaf or a Volt. He is still worried about it breaking down though.

Jimmy is enjoying his electric car and does wish he had investigated the leaf more. He recommends Rich get on board and wishes him a lot of luck.

Chevy Volt Podcast Authority?

We’re done! This was great!

Rich is always welcome! Jimmy thinks Rich needs to tell his wife what it is he wants to do regarding the Pardcastathon.

Jimmy doesn’t like thanksgiving turkey being referred to as a bird. Carving The Bird is a phrase he hates.

Rich tells a story about his daughter learning the truth about their chicken dinner. She might be done with chicken.

Rich Sommer’s Chicken Hands wings restaurant didn’t take. Or Different Fly according to Jimmy.

Jimmy talks about seeing the guy dressed as Charlie Chaplin waiting for the bus every day. So sad.

Stay in shape spidermen!
