World Cup review: Ep. 80

I wrote about my World Cup experience in Russia, but those were all my thoughts. What questions did other people have about my trip? For that, I called up my soccer-loving and well-traveled buddy Carmine to take over as host of my podcast and put me on the hot seat.

Fan Mailbag! Ep. 79

Didn’t have time to book a guest for my podcast before heading to Russia for the World Cup. So I did a fan mailbag! Topics hit from people’s real questions: Miss America swimsuit news, my love life, minor league baseball, the Padres, what’s in my fridge, world records, and more.

I really liked hearing people’s questions and I might do another episode like this again. So follow me and send me what you want me to answer on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook too!

He’s the biggest guest in show history and talking about a lot more than Pitch Perfect. Skylar Astin shares how he was guilted into doing the pod (2:45), the only times he doesn’t like taking pictures with fans (9:17), when he knew acting was his meal ticket (18:45), what’s most fun between theater/TV/movies (28:12), breaking his own golden rule to meet Anna Camp (35:44), and if Anna watches WWE with him (42:22). Then the guys trade their drunkest stories (52:43) and Skylar answers the Fun Five (57:51).

Listen and you’ll learn fun facts like the first wedding Skylar ever attended was “Macho Man” Randy Savage to Miss Elizabeth.
