You’re in for a treat as Andy Daly & Matt Gourley bring you a remarkable festival of German accents in a travel themed podcast pilot hosted by pretzel maker/world traveler August Lindt. August is in fantastic German company as he welcomes legendary director Werner Herzog, surrealist painter/sculptor H.R. Giger, and our former holiness Pope Benedict XVI to get acquainted with one another, share some travel tips, and recommend wonderful travel destinations. Plus, they play a game called Where In The World Are My Wife and Children?
If you’re in Los Angeles, don’t miss a LIVE taping of The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project with Irish storyteller Patrick McMahon on Tuesday, March 11th at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub. Go to http://www.mollymalonesla.com/ for more info!
Also, mark your calendars as the premiere of “Review” on Comedy Central is on March 6th at 10pm!

Oh man, possibly better than the Dalton Wilcox episode. H.R. Giger stealing the show! It felt like The Dead Authors Podcast in there
I don't have any electronics and food is hard to come by

If anyone's not familiar with HR Giger, they should definitely listen to this Superego sketch:



I love Giger's repeated calls to get back to the topic of cooking.

Sweet Jesus, only like a minute in I heard the off-mic laughter of PFT.

AND THEN HE WAS WERNER HERZOG and everything was perfect.

Won't be able to listen to it right away...is it Besser's Pope Benedict? Or someone else? Never mind, I see his name there now, I could have sworn it wasn't there before.

August Lindt's accent seems to waver between German and French, sometimes he kinda sounds like the greatest actor in all of France

Some of the best improvisers in the world yelling at each other in indeterminable german accents? Yes please. This was amazing. I could have listened to several hours of this.

So great. And so true about Denver being no Amsterdam. The prostitutes are nowhere near walking distance to the Jon Benet Ramsay house.

HR Giger's review of Legoland had a SHOCKING lack of insane mispronunciations. I cannot say "dinosaur" correctly anymore thanks to Superego.

This episode is fucking magic, btw.

There actually is a children's book about a garbage barge that nobody wants, based on the MOBRO barge in the 90'sPosted Image

As someone who moved away from Denver years ago, Werner's description of the airport horse is correct. There is no freedom. There will never be freedom.

Haven't listened yet, but I absolutely adore every German in this episode, so I'm so stoked for this.
