    Episode 46 — Margaret and Al

    Great episode. Al and Margaret were superb. Anyway just a little nerd note - Jon Carpenter's "The Thing" was mentioned as an original but in itself was a remake of Howard Hawks' "The Thing from the 50s. Another 80s classic Scarface is another remake of a Hawks film as well.

    Suggestions

    For a possible future challenge, that would take every one out of the there wheelhouse. As a lot of people start trying out podcasts having heard the hosts in other podcasts, 1 challenge could be to have the contestants as guests on another podcast. This overall would test the podcasters ability to reach out to a new audience and gain extra listeners. They could be marked on: 1: Their ability to adapt and engage to the podcast 2: Displaying their humour 3: Appropriately plugging their own podcast. (Sorry if something similar posted previously)

    Any Guests You Want to Hear on the Show?

    Would Winston Churchill be too obvious a choice. Also maybe some marine who is a hit with the ladies. Heard there was a John F something?

    Episode 6.2 — Sketches: Day 2

    Think this looks the first challenge of a high quality where at least one of the bottom three has done well, Totally Laime and the Fort would look like the two battling it out for me. Just a little side-note on Left handed radio, but did anyone else find the setup very similar to the Fort's previous submission. At the start of the sketch I just hear Marc Maron's voice saying I know where this sketch is going. Mind you, some of their setups, particularly the use of the Batman Ringtone were well executed and did illicit a chuckle out of me.

    Guests you want to see on Sklarbro Country

    Oh how could I forget the minor league pitcher and positive energy vibes master Brody Stephens. If ever a perfect fit for this podcast, well Brody isn't probably it but i am sure he is good enough for one show.

    British Comedian and sports enthusiast Andy Zaltzman. Does The Bugle Pod cast with John Oliver for reference. Might give a nice British perspective, if he ever passes close by to LA.

    Episode 5.1 — Using the Guest: Day 1

    Well can't listen to second part yet but should be interesting. Again seems that the more sketch like shows would need to be more inventive. Would have been very interesting if Brett Hammill's solo show was still in for this contest, as the challenge goes against the whole set-up of his show. Also, just a little nuisance when I listened to this last night. For a show that is making me more aware of listening out to the sound quality of podcasts, was anyone else extremely irritated by the squeaking chair in the background?

    What guest do you want to see?

    I would like to hear Tiger Woods participate in some rounds of Would You Rather and What am I Thinking. Or failing that, maybe Chris Cox?

    Feedback for Brett Hammell

    Hard luck to Brett. Like Scott a Bot and many others, I was rooting for him from the start. On the inroduction, his segment was the one that immediately caught me and maybe just the choice of segements for the challenge were not quite as strong as this. Have started listening to the podcast thanks to hearing about it from Earwolf, and what many judges main critique is actually one of the reasons I like it. The multiple layers, while judges may say listeners find it confusing, for me make it much better for repeat listenings so less likely to skip when on shuffle mode. Also, from listening to your show I like the rhythym, how the sketches link into each other and the journey you take us on. I think that the overall show is effectively greater than the sum of its parts and so may have been relatively weaker when having to put up two minute segments out of context. By the way, Stewart Lee and Chris Morris are certainly two great comedians that I would recommend anyone to find out. Keep up the good work Mr Hammil (and to all the other nine challengers many of whom I will be seeking out as well. )
