They don't actually start talking about Jaws until the 45-minute mark. You're welcome.

The gays certainly have their claws bared on this one, don't they? It would have been nice if this had been a straightforward analysis of the subject. But it became very clear, very early on, that at least half of the distain for the Emmys had to do with the fact that it was being put on by Fox. And, as usual, toward the end it just became impossible to keep personal politics out of opinion. how predictable. Unsub.

yet another aggravating podcast where tonally, one person is on mic, one person is off mic by 6 feet, and the third guy sounds as if he's in the next room. PRODUCTION VALUES GENTLEMEN!

In Catholisism, they believe that the cracker and the wine literally become the body and blood of Christ in their mouths. That explains the symbolism in that regard.
