Life long pals David Wain & Michael Showalter have reunited to co-write a brand new rom-com called They Came Together and they’re here on CBB to tell us all about it! They’ll get into the good ol’ days of listening to podcasts on road trips to NYU, how they’ve removed the bladder out of the romantic comedy genre, and announce a very special promotion exclusive to CBB listeners. Later, Percy Pennyweather of the Steppenwolf Theatre stops by all the way from Chicago to invite the guys to an all new production of This Is Our Youth.

Is this the first ever instance where a guest had to leave for some arbitrary reason in the middle of the show and actually didn't come back? Or am I an idiot and Phineas was done by Showalter and not Wain?

Phineas was Wain.

Guests frequently come in and out in the anniversary and Christmas episodes. There's also the episode with Ben Stiller, Jeff Garlin, PFT and Andy Daly where the guests changed in each segment.

David Wain is such a weirdo. Love his appearances! Neil brought it again.. Really appreciated the plug to his favorite playwright. I mean seriously, Quackers Featherbeaks Coo-coo Caper is as much of a classic as Death of a Salesman, if not more.
British Empire and whatnot...

Michael said 'penis M&M's' as a play on words to trick the listener in thinking it he was saying 'peanuts.' You guys just don't get it. Forget it.... I'm outta... outta heeeere.

Yeah, it had the normal set-up for Showalter to be playing the new character, so I thought it was him for quite a while. I remember thinking, "wait, what's going on? Showalter is being funny!"

Good ep. I wish Show' could've stayed for the whole thing, but C'est la vie. (excuse my french)
Neil didn't really do anything for me this time, but I loved when Scott and Wain went back and forth with their cliche' obvious jokes (again the French)
Part of me was hoping that MIB was gonna call in on a bad phone line and complete the comedy Triforce.
Still good ep. (Great ep.)

The "two scoops" thing was a reaction to cereal companies using too MANY scoops of raisins. Some off brands would use as many as 17 or 18 per box. But Mike Post said, enough. Two is good. Two is right.

At first, I thought Neil was doing the generic dumb person voice that people do when telling a story. Maybe he was.

I think that's a funny idea for a charac.

There were a couple times where he sounded like Will Ferrell's Harry Caray.

Episode 59, Free Subarus for Moms

http://www.earwolf.c...barus-for-moms/

August Lindt's first appearance on the show, in which he tells Scott all about his travel adventures and suicide plans. Or are you saying Scott made a mistake because his plans didn't involve a heavy coat?

Also has Todd Glass and Paul F. Tompkins. Great episode--you should definitely hear it if you haven't yet.
