[00:00:26] ASHLEY RAY: Okay. TV Club, I am so, so excited for this episode. There was so much TV this past Sunday. We got a lot to get into. There was the Oscars and more importantly, for us TV folk, The Last of Us finale. Who cares about that movie thing? Oh, movies are so important you had to make a TV show about it? Exactly. Exactly. And my guest today, I had to bring in Cody Ziglar, Matt Apodaca–two amazing, amazing people. Look, I don’t know anything about the Last of Us video game or really anything that is cool. So, I had to bring in people who are cool and know about cool things. You know, Cody. He’s an Emmy-nominated writer/producer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Futurama, Rick and Morty, Robot Chicken, also former Earwolf producer and legend, according to my producer. And Matt–comedian, writer, producer, co-host of the popular Get Played podcast, and a current Earwolf producer.   [00:01:20] MATT APODACA: That’s right. Still trying to cement
