142: Don't Call it a COMEBACK!



Except.... it is a comeback. YES! WE ARE BACK. Karen has her voice back and what better way to celebrate her health than to have an episode all themed around stories, facts, and quizzes about famous comebacks. In order to rise, you must fall first, and Karen's got a quiz all about famous (and cringe-worthy) rejection letters. Movie comebacks, music comebacks, and all your favorite old diseases are coming back too. And of course, the man who rode the retirement-comeback rollercoaster, Mr. 23 himself, Michael Jordan.

ALSO: Listener mail!

RUNTIME: 52 minutes 10 seconds
