It’s January, the month where the studios seem to dump their non-awards-worthy fare, so instead of wasting your time listening to podcasts about bad movies, why not listen to us talk about… oh, darn, we’re discussing Ishtar. Sorry about that.
Jay was joined by Ishtar‘s champion Richard, along with a panel ranging from bemused to annoyed, but made up of Rebecca, Sean and Chris.
Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and the longest game every played on the Lambcast, ever, including Lambpardy. It does end, I assure you, just hang in there.
