The first episode I ever listened to for the amazing colossal podcast was the Bob Saget one in 2015 and whenever I want to laugh so hard at such crazy inappropriate stuff that is the one I put on. So I was so glad to have this one put out in 2020 so I had something else to crack up about. Thanks Gill and Frank for putting this Bob Saget one out again we already miss him ❤️
