    This is an insane story and I'm amazed I haven't heard it talked about anywhere. Vicky Pezza has produced a number of big podcasts like The Naughty Show with Sam Tripoli, Tell 'Em Steve Dave, and Rutten and Ranallo. Jake Ellenberger and his cohost Jon Orlando hired Vicky and Lee Syatt (producer of Joey Diaz's podcast) to produce their show Action Junkeez. Lee left within the first few months and in September of 2017 they told Vicky that they couldn't pay her till January of 2018 so either she could keep producing the show and get paid a lump sum in January or she could stop producing the show. She continued to produce the show until January and they still refused to pay saying they couldn't afford to pay her at the time. They still refuse to pay to this day and refuse to even address it.

    There is even more crazy shit to the story described in the thread and podcast below:

    ‎Sophomore: 7: Action Junkeez Racecar on Apple Podcasts

    Oh also they bought this in September 2018:

    I have no idea how the Podcast bubble hasnt burst yet. There cant be enough interest in all of them to keep them going.

    This story does not shock me. But it is shocking

    Super don't understand how he can say she didn't do the job when they put out the episodes she produced and they have the exact same sound as the one's previous. Then there's a huge drop off in sound quality in the episodes after she left. Also Jon says he wants to talk, but he's blocked Vicky on social media and won't return calls.

    Hahaha. Hey I did us all a favor. If CMNH won the last season we'd never hear the end of it.
