I was a little bummed that you guys kept using the word "midget" even though it's clearly offensive to little people. But...idk, maybe it's not a big deal? Is it like saying the N-word or is it like saying Black instead of African American, where only uptight people really care about the difference? Hard to say. I'm not a little person. But why risk it, if you're not sure? Why bother offending an entire group of people? What does truly harsh my buzz (yo) is when you guys throw around the word "retarded." Definitely not an okay thing. And I wouldn't say I'm the easily offended type (how could I be, watching these movies every week?).
Anyway, it was thoroughly entertaining as always. I really don't want to sound like "that guy" with those complaints up there. This is, by and large, my favorite podcast. But as far as being socially aware, you guys could step it up. That's fair, right?

It was pretty disgusting to hear the term "midget" used so flippantly during this podcast. Jason seemed like the only one who consciously chose to say "drawf" or "little person." These people really hear enough insensitivity thrown at them throughout their lives from little children, hacky radio DJs and general assholes - it's dissappointing to hear the same from smart and socially aware comedians. I hope you sell a lot of t-shirts though.
