Episode 98: All Dogs Go To Trial (Live at SF Sketchfest!)

Episode 98

20th February 2013

This week, live at SF Sketchfest: Brianne, a dog trainer, owns a small poodle named Shilo. She likes to take Shilo everywhere – the bus, classes at SF State, even restaurants. But this annoys her boyfriend, Zach, who thinks that Shilo’s constant company is annoying, saying that it’s representative of Brianne’s attitude that the rules don’t apply to her. Does Shilo need a shorter leash? Only Judge John Hodgman can decide. Also: John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats performs a few songs.
