Feel better! Lots of hot tea with lemon and honey for the throat! I miss the pod cast, can't wait till you are back in full force.

Let me be selfish for a second.

Karen because of you I had to suffer through the movie BlackHat. I you don't get better soon I may be forced to watch The Wonan In Black. So hurry!

In all seriousness , get better soon! Your witty, funny, and loveable presence Is truly missed. I'm sure Chris, Colin, and Dana are chomping (champing) at the bit with lots of trivial and useless information.

I was really worried that you guys had split up a-la Beetles! I hope Karen is feeling better soon! Try some hot apple cider vinegar (it's my go-to!) mixed with hot water until drinkable. FEEL BETTER KAREN!

So happy to hear Karen is on the mend, have been going CRAZY without my GJB!

We, my girls and I, want Karen to feel better more than we want a new episode and we want a new episode a lot.

Hey guys,

I hope Karen is feeling better. I was starting to wonder if you had closed up shop. This is actually a relief. Looking forward to the next show!

Despite optimistic false assurances to myself, my worst fear was realized. Very sad to hear about Karen's illness. But happy to hear she's doing better.

We're always eager to hear your voices again, but we're not going anywhere. Take all the time you need, Karen!

Hey GJB, really sorry to hear about that Karen :-(. I really love your show and i wish that there was something that someone could do to make you feel better. There must be something in your show that could help you. Love u guys!-

From C (england, Year 6) (long-time listener)

Yikes! After a few sad Wednesday's when a new episode didn't pop up on my Stitcher, I knew something must be wrong. Feel better soon, Karen! Turns out, I'm not sure I can live without you guys and your weekly dose of awesome sauce.

February 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterElyse

Get well soon Karen. I miss you Guys.
