  1. Caught the part at the very end about ranking how hot the Marx Brothers were and died laughing! You should do a poll actually, would be interesting. Myself, I would rank Zeppo last.
    Terrific podcast again! Really enjoyed listening.

  2. Loved this episode! Eddie talks so fast I think he managed to cover every single thought I've ever had about the Marx Brothers in my entire lifetime within a single 1.5hr episode. :D

    For my two cents, if we're ranking the Marx Brothers in terms of hotness, it is:
    - Harpo, for his otherworldly beauty and sensitivity

    (Tied for second)
    - Chico, because you can see that look in his eyes even when he's in character
    - Groucho, for his wit and energy

    (and a distant fourth)
    - Zeppo. Because biceps are a poor substitute for personality
