It’s the epic 400th episode recording! Recorded live at Hourglass Tavern in midtown Manhattan. Jimmy is joined by frequent co-hosts Kevin Conn, Grace Helbig and Jon Hoche! Producer Joe is on the mixer/tech and made sure everything ran smoothly. So many great guests joined in the fun including Paul Pope, Kevin Maguire, Ben Templesmith, ChrisCross, Becky Cloonan,  Ben McCool, Emma Hayley, Dr. Vasilis Pozios and “Alan Moore” even showed up. There was news, reviews, songs and all sorts of silliness. And oh yes…we drank! Thanks to Kasha  for photography, Brad for video, Producer Joe for producing, and to Beth and Josh at Hourglass for putting up with us. Also, a big thanks to show sponsors Heidi MacDonald of The Beat and Ryan Swearingen of Stated Magazine for chatting with us for  a few minutes as well. CNI and The Beat had a big announcement too! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
