Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Michele Fitzgerald.Michele (@MeeshFitz) may have not lasted long on Spies, Lies and Allies, but it wasn't necessarily set up for Rookies to have a chance anyway.

The great Bob Saget recently passed away and it inspired me to find this chat we had back in 2016. It's a career-spanning chat and a nice snapshot of all he's done in front of and behind the camera. We talk standup, Full House, Entourage, Dirty Work and everything in between. We had the pleasure of sharing the Tampa Improv with him in October. A few of us went to see him do his act the night before Challenge Mania Live. This is phone audio and was never meant for podcast use, so pardon the quality. More than listenable though. Enjoy and RIP BOB. - Scott
