This post exists for no other reason than to point out how awesomely net-savvy the Muppets have become while the world wasn’t paying attention.

The Muppets on The Nerdist. Just how on Earth is it possible to get the Muppets to show up on your podcast? I have no frakkin’ clue. All I can tell you is that the results are incredibly fun and more than worth the listen.
