Okay, here's the deal. We've been away for a while. We know, and we're sorry, and we promise we're not going to leave you again, baby. And to prove our love (and celebrate Halloween in style) we're digging up a lost classic from the PWK vaults: Frankenstein with Rivers Langley! Plus, in a classic edition of Leah's horror homework, Leah really liked the Haunting! It's the start of a bold new era at PWK. We swear we're always gonna be here for you, girl.

LA-based comic, comic book nerd, and super-yoked dude Jeff May paid us a visit to talk about his favorite hero of all time, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man! He, Andy, and Leah talk about him, Jeff's past as a terrible boxer, and the conspicuous fact that Jeff looks like all the people who used to pick on Andy and John in school. Plus, Leah sits down with John to talk about his sordid New Orleanian past and why he's chosen to surround himself with comedians and put talky noises on the...

Spark up a doob and turn on some whale songs as we explore the Tao of the Dude with Ryan Pfeiffer, who is basically the Dude if he were into telling dirty jokes throughout the Southland. And Leah kicks things off by telling Andy and John about the Bouncy Ball Project, a blog/memoir/metaphysical lifestyle project she's been putting out in installments for the last few months. You're gonna love it!

It gets Machiavellian as hell this week on People we Know as we welcome Joe Dosch back to the Woodry's Hardware Studio to talk about why the House Lannister might not be all that bad. Hint: it's all about context. And in a kinda-long intro segment, John and Andy try to get at the heart of what it means to be a good fan, and just what it is we're trying to accomplish with this podcast.

To celebrate Wrestlemania 30 this Sunday, Paul Laier came by to discuss his favorite pro wrestler, the Dead Man himself - The Undertaker! The audio quality's kinda dodgy, but it's a great conversation, so we wanted to post anyway. Think of it as PWK - Bootleg Edition. Plus, Engineer John comes to terms with his own wrestling fandom. Dig it, brother!

Andy and Leah gather 'round the table with Los Angeles-based comedian Adam Allgood to talk about Groundhog Day's Phil Connors, enlightenment, and the vast, reachless despair of Phil's existence in a nigh-eternal time loop. And Andy and John made Leah read a comic, to mixed results. All this and more can be yours for free - click it!

John Gallagher stops by the Woodry's Hardware Studios to talk about comics' (narratively) thinnest villain, Bane. Along the way, we get a pretty thorough outline of the politics of a typical straight-edge punk scene. Come for the comedy, stay for the sociology lesson!

We know two things about Will Weldon: he's funny as hell, and he's both fascinated and repulsed by Entourage's Vinnie Chase. Join us in the Woodry's Hardware Studio as we brave multiple awkward edit points to try and get at what, exactly, makes Vinnie Chase such an enormous hunk of crap. NOTE: This episode was recorded before Halloween, and makes references to that (then) upcoming holiday. Do not worry; it is not suddenly the past.
