    Dear Erica,
    I just don’t understand Rumble Strip anymore. How can you make pieces as sensitive as the ones with JP Sinclair and T.O. (among many other wonderful shows) yet waste tape on the vacuousness of Pam and Joel? Problems? Honestly, I think Pam has more problems than she knows. She and Joel deserve each other, they are so awful. I don’t think they are friends, I think they are co-dependent leeches. I feel so sorry for River. I mean, I know she’s a biter, and everything, but I’m beginning to understand that she’s just a kid, acting out. I mean, does Pam even let River see her Dad, or does she feed her some crap like he went surfing one day and just never came back in, like Patrick Swayze in Pointbreak?
    On an interviewing, or possibly editing front, it is EXTREMELY IRRITATING that you keep promising to tell us about the resolution to Joel’s bathroom renovation, but we never get to hear about it. I mean, Are they still only using two bathrooms? What about the grout? C’mon! I’m just about ready to unclick the green button!
    Kind Regards,
    Stan

      I am curious by the Problems Series. It’s an improvised conversation between fictional, horrible people? Is this to point out how vapid some of our problems are?

    I just discovered your podcast and was scrolling through to download a few to listen to while shoveling snow yesterday. I was drawn to problems for some reason, and loved it! The situations reminded me of the stuff Larry David comes up with for Curb. I could listen to this stuff for hours.

    Reading through the comments on the “problems” pages, it is interesting to me that people got so worked about it- “Pam and Joel” are terrible people, etc. The thing is, and what the episodes really show, is that everyone is their own person and have their own priorities. Love hearing about the nitpicking of an amazing mountain biking vacation, so entertaining.
