How much longer can this last? Not the podcast...well, I guess the podcast couldn't continue if the earth ceased to exist...is that something we should be worried about? Listen, don't worry about it, we have Green Circle Award winner Steven Yates who will help us understand fossil fuel and energy sources and swamp rock. Just relax, buy Humanitis on iTunes or Amazon, and enjoy!

I never knew I could enjoy swamp rock and riddles so much until I listened to Professor Blastoff!

I have to know what lyric you said when you should have said, "take a ride on a flying spoon" because I couldn't catch what either of you said!

I love this podcast because it always reinforces the fact that farts and farting will always be funny. Whether they be by human, ocean, or earth.

Hey Blastronauts! It was such a great time recording this podcast with Tig, Kyle, David and Aaron! They were super-nice to me. Before the recording started, I got to listen in on them all talking and preparing for the show. They are all just as funny and nice "off the air" as they are on the show. They really are friends and they bust on eachother and seem so warm and nice that I hated to have my time with them end.

I hope everyone enjoys this episode. The high point for me was David reading my riddle and Kyle adding on to it. I am hoping I get invited back to contribute to another episode some day. Until then, I'll see you all down in the hatch! Swamp-rock on!

I'm @StevenEYates on twitter.

I have a great Idea for a song Paul F. Tompkins may want to sing on your show...

Hey T&K&D,

Wow-Steven Yates was one of the best guests yet, and Aaron's really gettin' the hang of the clip thing. This episode had a really good balance between guest and host input, and great chemistry all around. Plus, there was a great riddle and a short visit from Cajun Lady! Please accept your Green Circle Award, y'all...

I'm so glad I was alone in my room when Kyle started doing the Cajun voice. I was ugly laughing. Hard.

By the way, you guys are up to the #2 result on iTunes mobile auto-search results when you get to "Professor B"...a few weeks ago, you didn't even show up until "Professor Blas"...Keep up the good work!

Yeah I think Steven was great, hopefully if he comes on again he can tone down the fan-ness and appreciate the fact that he's talent, baby.

My new favorite episode! Listening to it at work was tricky as I had to pause it and walk away from my desk several times just so I didn't collapse in a heap of giggles and embarrass myself.

"Bring out yo alligator and spank it!"

Steven was such a great guest! I laughed really hard when he ended the special hello with "from a green circle award winner." Such good timing! Give this guy his own show already! Love it!

There are SO many quotes I want to bust out in daily civilian life from Professor Blastoff, but have to hold back from because no-one will know what I'm talking about. Maybe I should just risk it and see it through and enjoy the consequences...

Also, Kyle's Swamp Rock voice hit just before I got to work which was the best bad/good timing ever- I had to compose myself a lot before I walked through that door...

Thank you so much, to all of you brave Hatch Troopers. I love you.

Swamp rock, you kidding me?

Great guest this week, he really seemed to have a good time and felt natural. His inclusion of the timely Humanitis plug was very clever.

I love that this podcast has matured nicely. I remember the original "riddle" with Dr. Coen, it's crazy to think it was just a few months ago and now they're the "Would You Rather?" of Blastoff... how could the podcast have existed without them?

I think an honorary Green Circle Award should be given to the PB team. Or maybe they can get the comedy version of the award, the Burnt Sienna Circle Award? We should make it happen. It'd be nuts.

(I didn't google it so I'm really hoping this award doesn't really exist somewhere. And if it actually does, T/K/D probably deserve it).
