From Pete: With the loss of our brilliant, warm, loving friend Harris Wittels this past week we encourage everyone to go back and listen to some of his appearances on the show, in particular the Returns episode if only to help us understand the struggles of addiction and how to help those we love. As I'm guessing many of you have already done so, here is a new Emily Gordon returns episode, always my go-to as one of (if not the) favorite guests we've had, as a special 250th episode. Such a sad week but I hope you enjoy this fun silly gab. Thanks for all the online love, thanks for getting us to 250! You all mean so much to me, thank you.
