I will preface this by saying that, like many here, I'm a big fat comedy nerd. So things like the whole 'Mencia-situation' fall into a class of stories that aren't really that important and yet strike a ridiculous chord in me. (Kinda like the 'Tiger Woods Scandal' strikes in young married women.)
That said, I can honestly say that this past episode was the single greatest podcast I've ever listened to. It was entertaining and informative. Marc was both a fair interviewer, but not a cream-puff. And my reaction when the episode finished was more so than any episode of "LOST" or "The Wire". AWESOME. Can't wait for the next one.
I found Mencia to be very very interesting. I definitely didn't believe a lot of what he said but I came out of this one certainly more sympathetic than I thought I'd be. We'll see what happens.
