Episodes

Ep. #237 - Ishtar  

It's an emotional moment. This is the last regular episode where all three peaches will be in Dan's apartment recording together, in the same space. It's also the ten year anniversary of this dumb podcast's existence. So how did we celebrate it? By taking a look at what was supposedly the worst movie back when we were growing up, Ishtar. Elliott vastly improves "Meet Dave," Dan somehow misses some nudity, and Stuart talks about a "tug in his butt," whatever that means. We're gonna miss this, guys.
