Some people blame this podcast for the bad luck of the people Pat and Lisa talk about. Mort Sahl is gone, but the memories will always go on. Seems like the argument over vaccines is decades old. Lisa wants to eat magic mushrooms. And she will. And “Mrs. Cashman” is portrayed in a bad light on a TV commercial.
