Some day I'd like to hear an Earwolf podcast at not 4am, when I'm not doing a homework allnighter (but I guess someone has to give Julia Hays a run for her firsties spot, right?) ;-)
Anywho, I was also scared for Jason at some points. Glad everyone lived. Except for all those people who probably died "in the book", of course.
Jack's a real How Did This Get Made Man.
Ba doom *chsh*

Damn you, David Thomas! How dare you comment before me?! I'll have to get Jack O'Halloran on the case.
This interview was fantastic. Jack needs to star in a biopic of his life; he sounds like the most interesting guy in the world. Kudos to the HDTGM crew for an awesome two-part live episode; I hope to hear more like them in the future! I already have some guesses about what the holiday movie may be. I can't wait to see if I'm right!

Thank you guys so much for posting the video as well! Would love to be at an actual taping someday, but until that day/cross-country trip comes, this is a really nice alternative. Would definitely pay again for something like this if you continued taping the live shows!

Jack O'Halloran must be real tough, what with threatening accountants and Juilliard graduates and avoiding traffic tickets because of who his dad was.
Don't get me wrong, I thought the episode was great, it's just that O'Halloran seems to be... embellishing his stories in order to sell his book, which is fine. It's clearly being marketed as a pure novel by the publisher, so characterizing it as non-fiction strikes me as misleading. I'm not claiming I know his life story, just that he strikes me as one of those guys who tells great stories, but you take what he says with a grain of salt.

Jack's stories were great. Shame that some of them got interrupted half-way through by himself or others so we never heard how they played out. And also, I felt a little queazy about some of them. I get that much of the time he was just fighting to get paid for work he'd done, but we'll only ever get to hear his half of his encounter with Christopher Reeve, and other stories were really about a big guy pushing other people about.
