    Definitely his Apex.

    Honestly other than Ron Livingston it might be everyone’s Apex.

    You think this is the apex of the man who directed Iron Man, the Jungle Book and Lion King? Or the apex of one of the leads of Wedding Crashers? Or Roller Girl and Felicity Shagwell?

    jon favreau is a massive director for disney but this movie basically made him a star as an actor. i wonder if that affect his apex (though no one actually understands that category)

    Did Swingers represent the peak of Jon Favreau's clout or notoriety? Probably no in both cases. Oh yeah, he also directed Elf. Swingers is clearly not his apex

    As an actor it’s his Apex. Iron Man would be his director Apex so he might have the two Apexes.

    No sports is really stretching content thin.

    I enjoyed the Kenny Smith and Will Ferrell podcast last week.

    I think how they categorize it as it was a huge hit and after that he established himself as a blockbuster Director so he had the cache to direct anything. He had also came off Elf earlier in the decade which was a hit.

    sometimes apex mountain can be argued

    jon favreaus being iron man and the kickstarting of the mcu is not one of those instances

    Probably a coincidence that there’s a six part Cam feature after he signs with the Patriots.

    Perhaps this will irritate some of you as well...

    I’ve noticed Simmons occasionally makes a very pronounced “MMmm” noise when someone else makes a point. It irks the fuck out of me and nearly makes me want to turn an episode off. There’s some awkwardly inauthentic about it.

    Also, if Fennessey or Ryan fucking says “can I ask you a question Bill?”one more time on a podcast where they’re one of 2-3 ppl on the show, they might as well just produce the damn episode and not talk at all.

    Bill has very quickly declared pandemic baseball bad and pandemic hoops good. I’m sure this is in no way related to his current optimism on the Celtics chances and negativity about the Mookie situation.

    With MLB not controlling extra curricular activities this was going to happen. The NBA I think is going
    to have the most successful outcome out of this because of their controlled environment.

    I don't mind Clark, its more that I dont think he can carry the podcast alone. Most of the other people he brings on aren't overly great either. Not a fan of Heifetz at all.

    Its odd to me that its never been addressed or explained. I would be surprised if Mays didnt want to do them anymore, especially since he is doing others podcasts.
