This show is so hilarious. I love how they're allegedly talking about a record that sold 25 million copies and they're spending more time talking about unfulfilled LA Food Bank charity promises.

Thank god U2 has a ton of records, at this pace we're looking at tons more episodes.

When (Adam) Scott said he had a picture of the two dicks I thought for sure he was just going to reshow them the Rattle and Hum cover. Hooo!

But I kid. This episode was fantastic. I love hearing Harris on here. Whenever these three get together it's incredibly fantastic.

Great episode! At about 1:02:45 scott talks about a band that had a bass player with a similar name to The Edge. While he was fumbling around trying to find it on wikipedia, I was thinking "The Precipice' and then Adam totally said it. Wicked cool!

So we all agree that if there is a biopic about The Edge, Harris should play him, right?

Given Scott's love for the song "It's Been a While," I hope the next band discussion podcast on the docket is "Staind By Me"

Next time I'm angry with a friend, I'll definitely steal the phrase "Hey, bro over."

I loved the fact that Harris' statement about it sounding like the 80's had enough effect on the Scotts to keep talking about it after he left. Great ep, I really feel a non-U2 guest makes the show funnier!

Ahhhh, I've been pumped for this ever since it was hinted at in You Talkin' U2 to Me? 2: You Two Talkin' U2 to Me, Too?, and it's finally here! You Talkin' U2 to Me? 3: You Three Talkin' U2 to Me!

After Scott (or was it Scott?) uttered the phrase "scot-free", I expected to hear the debut episode of new podcast "Scott-Free", where Jason Mantzoukas and Kulap talk about hair care products.

Tall John has got to hold some sort of comedy podcast record for most frequently mentioned without a guest appearance. I swear everyone loves Tall John.

Just created an account to say that Adam telling Harris to shut up about 11 minutes in is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time.
