Corpsing: Rob and the guests end up laughing a lot in the podcast when they're doing in-character improv, and it's Discussed as happening quite frequently in early takes of their work. Some questions have even been sent in to the effect of, "How often does it happen that you have to redo a take because you're all too busy laughing?"
Family Business: The entertainment industry for Rob and his son Ash, who works for Shifty Look and several of the guests and their family.
Its Pronounced Tro PAY: Rob often pronounces Steve Blum's last name as "Bluhm" instead of "Bloom" and has to correct himself. He also caught some flak for accidentally pronouncing Aang's name as "Ong".
Man of a Thousand Voices: Rob and almost all of his guests count as this. None of them are afraid to flex their acting muscles, using several of their characters in the middle of a podcast.
