Avid fly fisherman Liam Neeson brings his very particular set of skills (and his Stanley thermos) to the show this week. To Sean’s dismay, we don’t talk about Star Wars. However, of his over 100 film roles, we discuss Alfred Kinsey, Oskar Schindler… and Jesus. And the time he made Jason’s mom cry for a week.

A song comprised of quotes from this episode:


Midnight shifts, foiling 3 feet off the water

The waves are X amount of feet high

This is breakfast

You’re a beast, Irish earthling

A cape that said Security

I don’t think you know how much I like you
