Break out your DiGiornos and prolapse your anuses, folks! Much like the rising of good ol’ Christ himself, Marissa Wompler is back and more disproportionately shaped than ever before. As we previously reported, a new bi-weekly podcast called WOMP It Up! launched on Earwolf.com today, and I had the good fortune to talk with the punk, billionaire, geniuses behind it: Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, both UCB vets and the co-creators and co-stars of USA’s Playing House.

You know, I'm pretty excited. [...]
