Bang! shows. It's been a slow few days of comedy podcast news and posting for us and Aukerman's second behind-the-scenes post really offers great insight into the stellar improv taking place on the show regularly. It's a special treat for comedy fans and podcast fans.

Among the diehard and vocal Comedy Bang! Bang! fans, Episode 98 was one of it's most controversial airings. The episode featured appearances by Adam Scott and James Adomian (as Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham). Check-out Aukerman's full post for some quality insight on the razor's edge that is Comedy Bang! Bang!
