  1. Great ep! I would love to debate Besser on Millennials, but really great improv by everybody.
  2. I think it helps if you have a similar musical taste to Besser, like I weirdly seem to have. When he made a TSOL reference (to Code Blue, nonetheless) it blew my mind.
  3. Aren't most songs about girls anyway, though? Girls or boys, or doing drugs, or how it sucks being on the road in a band. That's pretty much rock music right there. Probably going to get a better memory or scene out of something like that Rush's 2112 or whatever.

    Bret Easton Ellis

    Bret Easton Ellis is also a genuine giant weirdo, so this might be good. But I can maybe see them clashing a bit.

    i4h tv pilot

    Honestly I think one of the best suggestion-based scenes one of the early ones, the multiple referee from episode 4: Don't know if that's what you're looking for but it's one of the earliest ones that I thought was really a perfect demonstration of the art of longform and got me really hooked on the show.

    There's a Frankingstein that posts in the Sklarboro Country threads but I think he is just a big sports head

    Other podcasts?

    Hey so I was going to just put this in the most recent episode thread but I don't want to take anything away from that guy who wrote that song about Shaq I have spent the last two months ignoring all of the other podcasts I listen to and catching up on everything Sean and Hayes have ever done. I don't even like reality shows. Now I'm coming up on the final episode of RSS after listening to every Hollywood Handbook twice and I don't know what to do. Will I be able to listen to any other podcasts ever again? They're like this one, but way shittier. Will Sean and Hayes be on the second season of Serial, or will I have to skip that one too?

    Other podcasts?

    I want other podcasts to be Sean and Hayes now
  9. Why is Matt Mira a successful comedy writer? He seems like a nice enough guy but doesn't seem very funny at all. Like, I don't even think he'd be the funny guy in your squad, maybe second overall and a good support player for bits.
  10. I am new to the podcast. Which are the best episodes? I just listened to the Dave Thomas one and it was amazing. Listened to Sodaro, PFT, mostly the names I recognized. I'm now using "speak on that" all the time.

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    I wrote a story about pick-up artists a while ago and one interesting thing I found is that there's actually a lot of first- and second-generation immigrant males among the groups, at least in Canada. When they come from patriarchal societies or places without the same level of sexual freedom, dating in the Western world can be a real mystery. They're attracted to the PUA movement because it not only provides them with an alleged method to "get" women, it can also reinforce their ingrained cultural norms about male dominance. Which is totally horrible because literally the best pick-up technique is "Be interesting and be interested in other people."

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    Trip report: This guy is actually way less offensive than I thought, but he's still not very funny. I like that they took a risk with the guest, though. I did really appreciate that he pointed out how a lot of the mainstream pick-up artists are just using the language of abuse, I thought that was pretty perceptive. Then again, that was after he called himself the "Prince of Pick-Up" or something like that e: He's still a big ol' sexist creep though, just to be clear. But I don't mind that he was on the podcast at all, even if it made for some uncomfortable listening.

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    Okay, fair enough. I have faith in Tig, Kyle and David. Also, check out this guy's photo on the episode page for some extra laughs.

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    I couldn't be less interested in hearing what some misogynist creep pick-up artist has to say. Is this episode actually worthwhile to listen to? Those guys make my skin crawl.

    Episode 200 — Advice

    This was one of the best episodes ever. Kyle's script - and the genuine surprise of everyone else in the studio - left me in tears laughing. Molly was an awesome guest, and had actual (hilarious!) chemistry with Kyle (and everybody else). A real treat for a 200th episode.

    A new PFT show?!

    I have not been paying attention. Womp It Up is happening?

    EPISODE 105.5 — MINISODE 105.5

    I found it pretty hard to get by the audio quality of this episode. Even using a basic handheld recorder or a decent cellphone (with headset or without) would've sounded a lot better. I work in radio so I have a way higher standard for these things, but that was tough.

    RIP Harris

    I really can't believe it. I've listened to Harris speak for hours and hours and I felt like I got to know him - that's the thing with audio entertainment. He was a truly special person and we will miss him so much.

    R.I.P. Harris Wittels

    So sad. I loved that guy. We all did.
  20. Seriously though this entire week of Earwolf has been fucking great and I haven't even listened to Lauren's Tom Leykis show.
  21. I looked like a crazy person on the bus with this episode. A great achievement in the history of podcasting. Definitely for comedy nerds only but holy shit did it pay off for this comedy nerd.

    Episode 189 — Canada

    A really great episode, from an actually really insightful takedown of Serial to the extended and hilarious conversation between Jon and Eddie. Americans probably didn't get a lot of the references (especially when they're just randomly singing Tragically Hip songs by the end) but I really enjoyed it. On the freedom of religion thing: Here in Canada we view that as the right to have your own beliefs and, crucially, not get bothered about them. The general idea is that belief is a personal and private choice. We view the aggressiveness of the American evangelical movement as offensive. This is a big generalization but it's what they were getting at - the idea of public figures explicitly mentioning their own personal beliefs (or even thanking god in general) isn't something we're comfortable with, among other examples. America has a much different religious tradition than its Northern neighbour; it's much more woven into the fabric of everyday life. It's maybe a part of Canada's collective identity, that we don't want to rock the boat or emphasize our differences too much. Giant crosses by the side of the road, political figures talking about how often they attend church, religious figures as celebrities - these are anathema to the Canadian approach.
  23. I also loved Eugene's sermon about eating healthy. For some reason, when people's real attitudes and experiences get worked into their characters it gives me incredible joy, like i'm in on the joke because I know Eugene is such a fitness guy (and Gabrus loves to eat).
  24. Incidentally: Yeah, these really funny and talented people should be reduced to simply their physical characteristics because they're female. You're garbage, Eric.
  25. One of the greatest episodes in the history of the show. I love how even a "naturalistic" improv goes to absurd places. Great work
