I hate U2 and can't stand their music, but I never miss this encyclopedic recounting of everything U2.


(Bonus.... reading all the iTunes comments from U2 fans who have written tomes on how Scott and Scott make a lot of stupid jokes and hate this show while listening to this show made it hard to breathe, I was laughing so hard.)

I'd listen to an REM podcast but I'd listen to pretty much any Scott and Scott podcast. I feel like the question was "REM: yes or no" and not a call for brainstorming but as someone who doesn't care about REM something a little wider like early shows / concerts you went to, how you got into certain bands, stuff you liked a long time ago and whether or not it holds up now, or just a general music podcast that offers an opportunity to occasionally talk about weirder or more obscure stuff would be sweet for me personally, which is the podcast I would like hear - one that is made for me personally. Thank you!

Would love an R.E.M. podcast. The time U Talkin U2 was releasing weekly episodes was by far my favorite time for podcasts. Miss having the dynamic Scott duo on the regs

Does anyone remember which episode it is where Scott originally did the "Did you like that one Adam?" bit he briefly does in this one around 31:35? I just remember finding that really funny.

I am almost tempted to install iTunes just to be able to read the "customer reviews" -- is there any other way to see them?

On the iTunes website, I could only see 3 comments -- but they did contain this gem (with which I wholeheartedly
agree, needless to say):

"This podcast is CRAP! I have no idea why it's so popular save the U2 reference—but it’s not about U2. I'm half way through the first show and all I've heard are boring, meandering stories about the hosts' lives with occasional references to random bands--and sometimes a reference to U2. If you are expecting to hear about U2, don't waste your time. If you are huge fans of these two guys and want to hear insipid stories about their lives you’re in the right place."

Bah. The part where they speculate on doing an R.E.M. podcast was just a tease. I won't get my hopes up. I won't.

Please please please do an REM Podcast!

I don't have Twitter and have no idea how else to get in contact with Earwolf/Scott & Scott, but I FULLY support this idea.

U Talkin' U2 To Me is one of my favorite podcasts, and I can't stand U2, but REM is one of those bands that I've always WANTED to get into (and I've even tried a few times) and I would love to go through their back catalogue track-by-track with two of the funniest people ever.

I know they're both incredibly busy, but this would be incredible.

Far too few sub-podcasts, but other than that, a solid C+, bro.


I'm afraid that they no longer Love Films.

I don't care about REM, but I don't care about U2 either, so I would love an REM podcast just to hear Scott and Scott back on the mic more regularly.

Please please PLEASE do an encyclopedic undertaking of everything REM related. I'm not a REM fan, but if it's anything like UTU2TM then that matters very little. I need more Scott & Scott!! #FoxRox
