I'm very excited for the return of How the Bread Is Made. I do hope Scottabot will have the time to write those a little more frequently now that he's done shooting the CBB show.
And while I'm here I should say: Thanks Earwolf! You're the best!

I agree. Even without it, I would have still laughed my ass off.
p.s. That was an awesome plugs tune Willie J's Hays!

Part of me wonders, though, why it was even necessary for him to do a character in the first place. I know that the real person/weirdo dynamic is this show's primary format (especially since becoming CBB), but considering Seth and Ed's work history together I think it could have still been a great episode just to hear Scott interacting with both of these guys as real people. Even if it was just a "Broin' Out" style chat, I'm sure everyone involved here could deliver the funny. There are some episodes from the CDR era that did this really well, like the one with Chris Hardwick and Matthew Braunger or the one with Chelsea Peretti and Nick Thune; I would love to see that kind of thing pop up occasionally at some point in the future.
Just to be clear, I don't mean this as a criticism of the show, because as far as I'm concerned CBB has been consistently hitting it out of the park over the past few weeks. Hearing about how the bread is made just got me thinking about this kind of stuff, I guess.
