Adam Scott Aukerman slow it down once again this week as they are joined by Never Not Funny’s Jimmy Pardo to discuss his personal legacy with U2. They’ll talk about when Jimmy first heard of the band, watching them perform at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago of 1984, and his thoughts on U2’s discography. Plus, they chat about the Eagles documentary, the possibility of Jimmy starting a Chicago podcast, and the time Todd Rundgren made a weird proclamation to a concert audience.

Phew. For a second there I was worried that Scott wouldn't tell me if the guest was sitting to his left or his right.

I can't wait to get deep into this one. Its sure to be funny. Especially because the guest is never not funny. Scott and Jimmy are always a barrel of laughs when they get together in a podding cast environment. (And something, something, U2, something, something)

If Amy is reading this, please draw a picture of Jimmy punching Adam. Adam should be clapping and saying "I'm gonna cum all over you."

Jimmy doing a Chicago podcast would be awesome!!! And who else but Pat Francis would co-host it? Its always fun when Jimmy guests on Pat's 'Rock Solid' podcast. And Pat's always entertaining when he comes on NNF. But yeah, I would LOVE for Jimmy to do a one-off, limited series of podcasts centered around Chicago. And even though I'm not a huge fan of Chicago--I love "25 or 6 to 4" and "Saturday in the Park" like most folks do--but I'm open to receiving some Chicaducation and learning about some of the lesser known Chicago tunes..... I love horn bands. I played bari sax in a horn band back in my college years.

I went to the NY shows and Scott was not a guest (though Scott did say that we would hear them making the plans on this week's UTU22M episode. So close to an Adam Scott Aukerman live show, but it wasn't meant to be.

Scott's anger at the Eagles talk was wonderful.

I am not afraid to say it - Analyze Phish has been topped by UTU2TM as my all-time favorite podcast. Didn't think that would ever be possible!

But good news nonetheless.

Joe Jackson is one of my all time favorites. Fuck "steppin' out," though. Listen to Big World 50 times in a row then come talk to me, son.

Poco's first album is great, but I love Jimmy Pardo's assessment of Poco as "the Eagles' farm team."

I'm starting to feel awful for Kulap and Naomi Scott and think they should start their own rival podcast together.

I also hate the fucking Eagles. Thank you, Scott.

And I'm a fan of Peter Cetera. Not enough to be the other guy on Pardo's Chicago podcast, but I'd certainly be down to listen to it.

When Do You Get There, Bro? is an amazing addition to the podcasts-within-a-podcast. Frides!

Also, "Fuck You, man!"
Also also, "WHO CARES?!" "SHUT UP."

(Everyone predicting that this week's episode would feature a couple of punchy Scotts were right on the money)
