With Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Patton Oswalt (Happy!), and the rest of the gang from Whitlock High School ready to ring in the third season starting September 3, fans of Peacock's A.P. Bio are getting a very cool way to earn a little "extra credit." Starting this Tuesday, cast members Eddie Leavy (Anthony) and Sari Arambulo (Grace) host the companion podcast series "'A.P Bio': The Podcast" where the duo interview series creator Mike O'Brien, Howerton (Jack), Oswalt (Principal Durbin), and others- where they reveal behind-the-scenes anecdotes, audition stories, character evolutions and more.
"I'm so excited for this podcast. It was really cool of Peacock to agree to do it. And Sari and Eddie are the perfect hosts. They are incredibly positive, enthusiastic, and interested in showcasing all aspects of the show," said O'Brien. Now here a look at the first two episodes, beginning with an introduction to the podcast, and followed by O'Brien and others offering a recap of the first season:

When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher. As he comes crashing into Whitlock High School, Jack makes it absolutely clear that he will not be teaching any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids' brainpower for his own benefit. But are his students instead helping him to realize his dream job might actually be the one he has right now? Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt, Veep) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.
