So, the first time I listened to this episode, when it came out, I really did not enjoy it. Obviously this episode is in jest, and all fabricated in terms of the tension. However, I couldn't hear any joking in anyone's voice.
Now re-listening to this episode. I do enjoy it more. I feel like I can see now that Scott was leading a lot of what happened in the first part of the show. Where, Tim would say he didn't want to talk about something, but Scott would basically ignore that. It was funny.
And, the Neil Hamburger stuff isn't quite as funny, just because I know that Scott doesn't really make any money out of this show. But, it's all in good fun.
So, that's my take on this episode, and I guess I wasn't the only one to feel the way I initially did.

One of my favorite episodes! I agree with Zach: awkward on first listening, but like a lot of Tim & *sorry* Eric's comedy style, hilarious second time around. It's obvious the interview is fake, and Scott is "baiting" Tim, insisting on talking about nothing but Awesome Show (or parties they've both gone to), mentioning how Tim's music can be "snipped out" of the podcast and downloaded. And when Scott finally drops his cluelessness and picks up on Tim's animosity, Scott is great at playing foil to Tim's ridiculous cynicism ("You can stop listing cities now," "I won't name any more record labels. I'm sure you're just going to say gimmick after each one.") Funny, funny stuff. Great job!

Had the opportunity to see Tim live tonight, and all the pieces came together... what a freakin genius that man is. It all makes sense now!!
