I love the CBB community. Their selection for the best live episode reaffirmed my faith in humanity.

Interesting thing is that of the standard podcast episodes for the year, no episodes from July or August made the list. Which is a shame because #441: "Your Cousin Marvin" from August definitely should have made the list just based on Lenny the Loner.

Have you listened to Who Charted yet? Not only is he discussed, but someone (Howard, I think) actually asks if he and Andrew Ridgeley are both still alive.

I had forgotten about the Hollywood Facts theme performances on last year's holiday episode, so good.

I was waiting for the PFT passive-aggressiveness when Tommy Middle D would be #1 instead of him. Can't beat our golden boy! I do appreciate all Paul does for the show but Thomas is a treat I and many others are always chomping at the bit for. Paul's funny in a sarcastic, analytical breakdown of Scottisms and premises kind of way and Thomas is just pure ecstatic comedic whackiness. We need an ep. with both of them so it can be #1 next year!

Snubs/flubs? I was really hoping Government Pizza and It's Great didn't make the list. Also I'm surprised Shut the Fuck Door! isn't on there either. But super happy with the list overall.

PFT knows that not doing his old school characters like Cake Boss (cake boss) or Werner Herzog more often hindered his ability to reach #1 this year.

Great eps that didn't make the list:
407 and 449 with the Bajillion crew (Really surprised neither made it)
403 with Scott, Baltz and Ahdoot (Outrage this didn't make it)
442 with Ming and Daly
443 with Scott, Hines and McKenna
448 with Gaul and Gemberlicking
460 with Weirdo Al, Gaul, Rowley and Tarver (Or was this after voting had opened?)

I wish there had been a b-b-b-bonus clip of Maxwell Keeper destroying in Boston, that live ep really deserved more consideration by the voters. Curse you, the voters.

Very pleased with the amount of Claudia O'Doherty and Tommy MIDIfile on the countdown, but I must concur there were some snubs and, dare I say, flubs this year.

Some of my personal fave eps not represented, in no particular order:
The Timeys Leap Year Celebration, Your Cousin Marvin & You Know John Leguizamo - Neil Campbell is king!!
The Longest Pig Pile & Pop-Tartender - GINO plus mercilessly mocking Todd Glass and a great Brian Huskey charac
Hair Take It - Fuck tha haters Cameron & Rhea are amazing and this ep was wall-to-wall riffing. Touch 'em all.
Get Donk'd & Prayer Orgy - Two decent eps with good first-timer interviews up front & good improv in the back half
Shut the Fuck Door!, Nasty Lyrics, Master of Horror, The 3 Year Diet, Wisconsin Sugar Babies, Government Pizza, Persons of Interest & This Ain't Now, This is Then - The Bajillion Dollar crew consistently killed it this year, especially Ryan Gaul, Tim Baltz and Drew Tarver
Doubt About That - dick doubt!
The Intern Challenge & The Holiday Womptacular - I miss Wompler & Listler :(

Other random moments:
Brett Gelman's tirade from Ghost Pets are Liars, Jarles' drop-in during Wishing with The Grawlix, The Apple Tree song, the return of the Washington Monugents and the Monster Fuck freestyle rap reprisal (also started listening to Doughboys this year, which made it all the more magical).

As the Hulk might say, this was a Banner year for CBB.

Love Scott and Paul to death, but the earlier discussion about the alt right and now joking about trigger warnings? Also Scott has told jokes about John Travolta's dead son and obviously had some questionable (albeit hilarious) moments on the show throughout its lifetime. I mean the N-word and kike has been said many a time. Also Pepe The Frog is only part of the alt right as a representation of a depressed loser troll, and hardly a mascot. Maybe it's just because I'm not a ultra left liberal but it seems like they maybe voted for Hillary (or were pressured by Hollywood supporting her) and now are going extreme in the other direction due to the unfortunate election of Trump into our presidency. I've met them both, incredibly nice and amazing people, but I could do without politics banter. I'll get roasted by fellow earwolf fans here, but whatever.

Or you could just lighten up a bit, Rocknrolluhhmusic.

Damn, really happy Scott put in the Apple Tree song as a bonus. That shit deserves a medal. Too good. And hopefully we get more Glass on the show next year. Those eps are always gold imo cause Scott and him are amazing together.

Can't wait for the next episode! Benny, Scott and Sanz ALWAYS kill it

Key word is joking
