  1. Love your podcast, but the ending bit of this episode with the Sean Connery Jeopardy clip was in super poor taste to be played after Daralyse Lyon’s story. Couldn’t believe what I was hearing and hope it was unintentional.

  2. I would like to know who ok’d the bit at the end of Daralyse Lyon’s story, of a Sean Connery character in a Jeopardy Show talking about “swallowing semen”. Bad form. Making fun of childhood sexual abuse victims is never funny. I will no longer be listening to this podcast (sad for me, I was enjoying it), and I will no longer recommend it to friends.

  3. The Easter Egg that was originally at the very end of this episode (clips from SNL with Sean Connery on Jeopardy) was unintentionally placed there. The episode originally had a different story in the final slot. We had not meant for that Easter Egg to still be there. It was removed within hours of the episode first being uploaded. We’re sorry for the screw-up. If you refresh your podcast app or feed, you will find that the episode ends with the end of the final song now.

  4. Oh man I so deep into Jeopardy! preparation right now that it was surprising to me that the audience laughed at the concept of researching buzzer theory. (Everything I’ve read says dominant hand; but I’ve also found my non-dominant hand works best in practice!)

    Great work on the show, and great work on Risk!, Jeff!

  5. *I AM so deep
    *Wes

    (Sorry, I was doing that thing where I was listening and typing at the same time, and typed the name being said on the podcast at that moment rather than the name I meant to type.)
