YAY! this is VERY exciting!!


My favorite episodes are numerous, but off the top of my head Eddie Izzard, Steven Tobolowsky, Paul Rudd, Kathy Najimy, Danny Masterson...

This is just such a great interview podcast and Kevin always digs deep into people's careers to find interesting stories you've never heard them tell before. I'm VERY happy to have this show joining us on Earwolf!!

I saw the Scott Aukerman episode a while back. Scott talks about his job as a Disney Land character at length. Needless to say, it was fantastic.

Questions: how much oversight will earwolf have over kpcs? is this just a taking in a semi-orphaned podcast?

Agreed, these were great -- Kevin has sort of a corny, Dad-sense of humor, but he lets the interviews go where they're going to go, and does a great job with the guests, in general. Little Wolverine is always funny, too.

By the way, you're not buffering...

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would - Kevin really does his research. Wish the quality on some of the shows was better, though - will they be recording in the Earwolf studio?

Also, now I want to know who the guest who hated CBB was. Can't think of anyone off the top of my head beyond Ben Stiller, who just didn't seem to really get it.

the guest who didn't get it was Birbiglia. Probably.

it seems all earwolf is doing is distributing it and shoving a ad in (which should be in the beginning), which is fantastic. kind of like a syndication deal.

the sound has always been bad especially since they moved to a new, bigger studio. remember earwolf isn't producing it.

Will Forte also didn't seem to get CBB. I'll have to listen to the Birbiglia one.

Back to KPCS, I'm actually pretty interested in this new Earwolf development. I used to listen, or watch rather, the show a lot "back in the day" (in internet time) but couldn't commit all the time to sitting and WATCHING the show. I like being able to get back into it as a podcast. I could do without the 15 minutes of bullshiz at the beginning though.

Some of my favorite episodes are:
Billy West & John DiMaggio
Christopher Guest
Bryan Cranston
Scott Aukerman
BOB ODENKIRK!
Rob Huebel & Paul Scheer
James Roday & Maggie Lawson
Andy Richter
and Glenn Howerton

Will Forte didn't get it, but I don't think in a way that would be overly unpleasant for either party. My guess would be Jon Heder since they said on the show that it was just sort of set up and they didn't know each other; and he's apparently a mormon so perhaps the uncensored nature of a podcast irked him. Although as Scott says, he edited it quite a bit so it's probably pretty hard to tell.

Hey thanks for including the entire archive of shows, all the way back to ep. 1! I'm checking out the Felicia Day episode now. I'm glad there's an easy way to browse all of these shows.
