Last week we asked whether or not clowns are mimes, and the feedback we received was almost unanimous: they're not. A big shout out to our listener Andrew who concluded they're on opposite ends of the same CPHJ spectrum (Clowns, Pantomimes, Harlequins, Jesters).
This week "Is the "Reese's" candy pronounced Ree-sees, or Reesez?"
