Comedian, musician, and YouTube star Flula Borg joins Scott and our old friend Ming to talk about rollercoaster football, his new special Flulanthropy, and growing up in Germany. Ming also has a very special segment in which he talks about 80s video games. Plus, voice teacher Willard “Willy” Mapleton pops on by to introduce everyone to legendary Boston comedian Captain Mustache and to play a portion of his failed pilot.

Classic JARLES!!


I was iffy about the first guest cuz of my unfamiliarity with him but he was great. I'm pretty sure I could listen to a German accent reading a shopping list and be entertained

Also good old Willy lmao

I wasn't sure if this was a character or an actual person so I had to do research. August Lindt could be his brother in accents. I always enjoy when Ming is on the program.

Flula is an absolute treasure. He seems like he could be a CBB character, but no, that's actually just how he is.

I caught myself yelling at the podcast that Flula remembered the USA Cartoon Express and not Scott or Ming.

I'd love to hear a conversation between Flula & Herzog Werner...

Ming saying, "I hope there were no German cartoons with a train" was the best joke ever that just got ignored!

I was shocked to learn Flula wasn't a character. Ming is fantastic as always. Great ep.

I know that Flula isn't really a "character", but I've seen/heard enough of him to say that he at least uses a character-like persona. Most notably, there are certain ways he phrases things that are pretty clearly meant to be funny and not because he thinks they're correct. (And, for what it's worth, I think he's funny, and I'm saying this to give him credit because it is something creative rather than just who he is.)

I've played it via an emulator - it is f'in ridiculous. If I recall, the two go at it against a cactus - which is also just wrong...

Been way too long since Willy has been on. He needs to be on monthly. Especially since he and Aukerman are so similar

I have to admit I still don't really "get" Ming, but I thought he and Flula had some really great chemistry in this episode. And some classic Jarles! I'm glad PFT isn't listed as a guest anymore when he appears because the surprise is always delightful.

YES! Scott even tweeted "#ClassicJarles" on Thursday, and it still surprised me when I heard it because I thought he meant that they were recording an episode with Jarles.

I love it when Brendon Small turns up with things prepared.. The Appletree song was brilliant and I loved the clips in this show.. They were so perfect!
If I had all the money back that I'd spent on beer over the years.. If probably spend it on beer again.
