"Who's Piloting This Podcast?" is a show about pilot episodes of television. It all started when we decided to watch the first episode of Cheers on a whim, and discovered that there was a world where Norm and Cliff had to be introduced and explained to a world that had not met them yet. From that moment, we've begun to explore the first episodes of some classic hallmarks of television and found characters that were quickly written out, actors swapped after the first episode, and many cases where core characters hadn't yet been written in yet.
Join Gretchen, James, and a variety of special guests as they share a beer and learn a little bit about television history.
