Is There Going to Be a Podcast, Or What?

Yes, yes, there is. We've just been testing equipment, smoothing rough edges, and taking other measures to ensure that the premiere episode of The Marx Brothers Council Podcast is the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard. (No, as far as we know, Groucho never really uttered this inexplicably famous line, but occasionally we do say things Groucho didn't say.)

We would suggest keeping this site open on your device, and setting an alarm to remind yourself to refresh the page every thirty seconds.

Thanks for your patience -- we look forward to unveiling the first, introductory episode soon, so you can finally find out whether we prefer Animal Crackers or Go West!
