In the very beginning of this episode, I mention a way you can support the show by going to our Ko-Fi.com page. You beautiful people have already helped Jake and I reach our first dumb goal, so now we’re going to have to think up new stuff. Don’t worry, donations will automatically go to the next goal when we set it up.
Introduction – We realize we got competition in the Punisher podcast world! I bring up the banter war with my sister and my forays into standup comedy. Jake reveals his secret saltiness over all my guest spots and gives me some tough love. Jake then closes out with a goodbye to a local friend.

The New Contest!– I found a Deadpool vs Punisher #1 comic signed by former show guest Fred Van Lente! And now I’d like to give it to one of our listeners. Fred Van Lente was one of Jake and I’s favorite people to have on the show, and for a lot of listeners, too. If you would like to get your hands on it, there’s two ways to enter!
