Who the Eff is Sal Calanni?
Sal Calanni is a stand up comedian, actor, writer, lactose intolerant Italian who enjoys interviewing other performers, (comics, actors, even wrestlers). He performs live podcast shows, takes field trips and sometimes just rants about his week, news, sports, or whatever else he needs to work out of his mind.

for the Holidays, we travel back in time, to 2 years ago, the third ever episode, the first ever guest, back when Angelo was happy to be on the podcast, as Sal battles Reggie on what is better, Pumpkin Pie or Sweet Potato Pie, with Angelo being the tiebreaker.
