Happy Monday, Boys & Girls.
Come in and pull yourself up a chair. It’s time for another installment of The Firewall & Iceberg podcast.
With lots and lots of new things premiering in the weeks to come, this is probably our last Reader Mail-centric podcast for a while. Along the way, we talk about HBO’s Pee-wee Herman filmed show, chat about “Parks & Recreation” and “Shameless” and we discuss antiquated sweeps periods, the importance of promotional goodies in press kits and semi-arbitrary basic cable rules for standards and decency.
Lots to talk about!
Here’s the breakdown:
“Parks & Recreation” — 01:10 – 09:50
“The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway” — 09:50 – 18:05
Listener Mail – The Sweeps System — 18:20 – 24:43
Listener Mail – “Shameless”  — 24:55 – 35:05
