    Just Shoot Me reunion

    Missing Brian Posehn and Scott Aukerman... http://www.vulture.c...me-reunion.html

    What do you think Howard does for a living?

    I'm going to say comedy writer/standup. The free version of IMDB lists Nick Swardson's Pretend time as his most current gig, but he has also mentioned that he is working on the Beavis and Butthead reboot that is starting later this month.

    Episode — Earwolf Challenge Epilogue

    And the Tuesday October 11 live show of Comedy Bang Bang is no longer accepting reservations. Really would have been a treat to see Dassalo in that theater. Damn you comedy nerds!

    Episode — Earwolf Challenge Epilogue

    For those of you in L.A., Tommy Dassalo from the Little Dum Dum club is going to be on the Comedy Bang Bang live show next Tuesday! I hope I can find out when to make an advanced reservation - they always go so quick for that show. While I loved being a guest on the Epilogue episode, I almost wonder if some of the feedback (both on the epilogue episode and for Jeff/Frank/Matt to consider for a potential future season) should be coming from the podcast contestants themselves - clearly they will have a different perspective to add. I'd be particularly interested to know whether if any podcast contestants were disappointed that they didn't get more time to interact with and/or respond to comments by some of the great guest judges on the podcast. Each week, only the bottom three got to interact directly with the guest judges. Obviously, the show could easily become a sprawling mess if each guest judge were to skype call each podcast contestant, but it would still be a treat to directly hear every podcasts' reaction to guest judges notes (not just the bottom three).

    Thrilling adventure hour

    Scott Aukerman was great on the October 1st show at Largo. They also have a podcast that is worth checking out.

    Episode — Earwolf Challenge Epilogue

    @Bucho In my mind, the criteria has been incredibly clear ever since Scott and Jeff told everyone their single criterion for the final week: the judges voted on whichever podcasts they prefer. This was true for Scott and Jeff, and was true for all of the judges. Clearly, preferences are subjective and of course people are going to prefer different things. . What was often discussed (sometimes over-discussed in my mind) was not criteria, but the details of a task - for example, how to incorporate a guest, what a theme and intro ought to do, or, most infamously, what counted as a recurring segment. In my mind, this is where the show sometimes got repetitive at the detriment of instead specializing on the strengths/shortcomings of each individual podcast. Obviously, a balance between both would be nice - and clearly discussing the nuts and bolts of these podcast components can help serve as instruction to help anyone launch their own podcast. But the main goal of the Earwolf Challenge (at the end of the day) is to be entertaining. When I suggested that the show frame each podcast in how they were changing, Matt countered by saying that not every podcast necessarily had to change - that when Elizabeth got all tense responding to feedback she did worse. If the show wanted the podcasts only to succeed they would just give them tasks well suited to what they do (in their wheelhouse). Instead, the show is called "The Challenge". I stand by my contention that watching shows struggle and overcome difficulty is more entertaining than shows keeping on doing their "own thing". Though, this too, is probably a matter of preference as well. So it goes.

    I thought my voice on the podcast sounded a little like Brady's. I hope folks could tell the difference between us. I got a little amped up for this and probably violated a couple of the goals I set for myself before recording this. The goals: 1. Don't talk too much 2. Don't try to be funny - let the funny people be funny 3. Be honest - if somebody says something I disagree with, then disagree - it will only make the show more interesting. I was honest, so at least I got the last one right. I think I only left out one thing - that if people want a season two of the Earwolf Challenge, then providing a donation wouldn't hurt the cause. In fact, it would most definitely help. Donation forms are on every podcast's home page and I bet the tech guys know which show is initiating the most donations. If I were Jeff Ullrich, the decision of whether or not to have a season two would be relatively easy if the show was bringing in a bunch of money.

    Live from Bumbershoot 2011 Discussion

    @cakebob The bumbershoot music lineup doesn't particularly strike me as hippy focused: http://bumbershoot.org/lineup/ ; but my knowledge of "hippy" music ends at Phish, the String Cheese Incident, and Bela Fleck and the Fleck tones. . Many of our favorite earwolf hosts and guests probably can't be generalized to just one genre of music though. The Sklar Bros play indie music at the start of every show. Doug Benson has mentioned his love of the band 311 (!) and Broadway (i am guessing both plays and musicals). Both Scott Aukerman and Rob Delaney have musical theater backgrounds. Scott in particular seems to be a fan of rarer Sondheim work. He's also done parody songs of pop acts like Lady Gaga and Beyonce. One of the Apple sisters (seedy?) is currently performing in Jersey Boys. Brian Posehn is a huge metal-head. Jimmy Pardo likes Chicago, Kiss, and a bunch of other bands from the early 80's. PFT is performing with Ted Leo at Largo this weekend and has performed in the past with Aimee Mann and a whole host of other diverse musicians that commonly perform at Largo (Sara and Sean Watkins). Ed Helms does banjo/bluegrass music. Howard Kremer knows a lot about rap/hip hop and Kulap is pretty knowledgeable about top 40 music/dance-able tracks. . Everyone probably likes Prince though, cause he's pretty great. And "Bat Dance" is Scott's favorite song. With the exception of Harris Wittels, none of this points to your classic "hippy" scene.

    @cakebob I think the "hippy/drum circle" reference is driven more by the general area: Seattle and the northwestern portion of the U.S. as opposed the specific bumbershoot/comedy audience. I've only been a couple times, but I would describe the DLM/CBB audience as more of a comedy nerd/hipster vibe. You know, ironic t-shirts, thick-rimmed glasses, tight jeans, etc. Harris Wittels' love of Phish seems to be an outlier - think more Death Cab for Cutie and less Grateful Dead.
