A Saul and Battery UPDATE

Loyal “A Saul and Battery” listeners will know Kelly has been promising a graphic to document the likelihood of survival for the super awesome Kim (and then we added the earnest Pollos employee Lyle as well). Here it is.  100 = certain death, 0 = alive and living large.  Mike and Kelly both make estimates each show. And a reminder… Mike and I will be talking about the latest episode of Better Call Saul “Expenses” LIVE at 9pm-ish Central time here:
