Posted December 16, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 489 views]

Like many people, I grew up watching Bill Nye, The Science Guy.

I finally got to hear how they met when Jamie joined us as a Guest DJ this week.

Mark Duplass has done a LOT.
Any mention of his name and I guarantee there will be a chorus of different projects he’s been involved in — The League! The Mindy Project!
