“I am contractually obligated to make a complimentary comment here regarding the podcast Billy and I are doing together. This is proving difficult because Billy kidnapped me and is holding me for a ransom at the cost of 44 bananas. PLEASE SEND bananas, ”Monaghan said.
“Dom took a bit of persuasion, that’s right, but this podcast is going to rock! He’s such a joker, you have to love Dom! Ha… but you also have to like bananas, so… yes! send bananas, ”Boyd said.
