Today’s Professor Blastoff episode is inconceivable! The gang starts off the show by discussing their feelings on marriage and comedian Julia Farrell joins to have a discussion about personality, Myers Briggs, killing puppies, communication, introversion vs. extroversion, and much more. Tune in for an introspective look into the brains of your favorite podcast hosts.

Ah man... the guest is annoying.

She seems to yell. And she yells a lot about herself.

Agreed. Her speaking voice is yelling, and she keeps talking over the hosts to jam her points in.

Ohmygosh, LOVED when she yelled/said "Am I not close enough to the mic?" Oh boy.

The guest was perfectly fine and wasn't yelling, I'm not sure what the people above me are complaining about. If anything she was great and fit into the show's groove well.

Is doing Inconcievable! the next topshelfthoughts?

i'm gonna have to agree that parts of this episode were a tiny bit annoying -- mainly because Julia Farrell comes across as young (and maybe a tiny bit naive) the conversation occasionally veers toward one you might have late at night in your freshman dorm room... which is fine, but i come to expect a more mature tone from these three (but not too mature, mind you).

to their credit, tho, kyle, david, and tig conversed with her well. they took her seriously and were patient.
in fact, i think this episode was really about looking for emotional growth, rather than "what type of personality am i?"

i really like how david pointed out that judging people by their myers-briggs type is similar to judging them from where they're from (i.e., from the south), and he sort of gently points out how hypocritical Julia was being by using the test to judge people, while at the same time complaining about being judged for being from texas.

despite all of those negative things i said above (or perhaps because of them), it was still an enjoyable episode.

I COULD NOT STOP laughing at Tig doing "Inconceivable!"

I agree that Julia was way too loud, but I thought it was a really good discussion.

Oh, also, it was really weird/funny that this was the second day in a row with an Earwolf show where someone rubbed their hands or feet together right into the mic.

That reminds me, I loved the "P on your parade"/"J on your parade" exchange, because there's a totally innocent version of it that's befitting a Christian Podcast, and a totally gross version.

can't take credit for the photo, but this is what I imagine Tig's "weird genius baby" to look like.

For the record, I love the show. Just thought the guest was not used to the give and take atmosphere of a podcast.

If you want to call me names, okay. That just means you care about your point of view and I respect that.

i do not think it was namecalling but i think the person whose username is a reference to the show and whose signature is a reference to the show was just making a post that was a reference to the show but everyone should know: im dumb as all hell and not good at posting
