I really love how many female comedians you guys have as guests. Not sure if it was an intentional move or not, but it's appreciated! Everyone's hilarious and listening is such a delight!

We had an iguana on our porch and our neighbor called the cops first, not knowing what to do. she was yelling "there's an iguana on your porch!" And the cop came and had to stand there for about a half hour before animal control came. we had an extra fish tank so we thought about putting it in there. This was in Wisconsin.
