Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm
_Ike_:

Trouble just seems like a standard benching that occurs occasionally to long-time stalwarts to give someone else a chance. I suspect she has the best chance of all the people who are off this summer of returning in the fall (though I have nothing to support that, it’s just a hunch). Really glad to see J. Herweg is finally back on the air too, it’s been too long, and lots of interesting new and returning shows.
