Gary talks about how 20 or so young children own "Down With the Crickness" buttons and how funny it is. Gary mentions how great t would be to have to explain how Michael Crick and Josh Groban are jokes on the Network and he'd love to do this before he died. Gary talks about meeting the hosts of Retronauts. They talk about how its pretty cool to have people compliment the fact they tend to talk politics on the show.
