In Topic: Episode 97 - Alec Baldwin Is Beetlejuice (w/ Lee Rubenstein)

12 February 2018 - 07:03 PM

You're splitting hairs, the list seems harsh and hasty, and that's just his persona, take it or leave it - you can't change him. It's natural for his character to change over time, and I think he pulls off the self-defeatist and contentious attitude, it suits him and adds to the unpredictability. Maybe it's the fact that it's the closest thing (chemistry wise) to the now defunct Ronna and Beverly, but I anticipate this podcast more each week.
If I had one criticism though, it's that every so often, like here, the guests are in two minds over the accent they adopt, so they go for neither realism, nor absurdness, thus losing the parody aspect that's usually so delicious.

In Topic: Episode 329 - The First YouTube Video: LIVE from UCB Sunset

08 February 2018 - 06:38 PM

Laughed the most out of all eps this year, the Pokemon scene took the cake, and the headshot one second into the Isis audition...

Wow, the grainy football video I submitted tanked so bad, it made it to the title (kinda). There was only really humor in it if you account for the guy being one of the most recognized English managers acting out of character.

In Topic: Episode 328 - K.Flay and the Sexy Talk Cafe

04 February 2018 - 08:04 PM

Thought K Flay (whom as usual I'd never heard of) came off as well as any musical guests, not just the performance, but the openness and looseness of the interview part.

Re: Razlax479, I don't know if anyone who wants that version would be willing to dish out for what is just a cropping out, when it takes little to no effort to cut the tracks yourself, unless you're looking for audio fidelity, I guess.

The only other outcome for the listener would be to improve the standard of guest through the money incentive and potential boost, but it's already quite a rarefied level of guests, plus the exclusivity adds to the fun, like being 'in' on something rare. That said, seeing the quality of content, you got my vote for it.

In Topic: Episode 327 - Welcome To Under-Earth

25 January 2018 - 10:53 PM

You judge it on the whole, though, and it was an entertaining ep up to the very clear delimitation, which might have been too well produced for its own good. But in all, great chemistry and loved seeing Moynihan tackle the I4H formula, feels like a master returning to his roots.

In Topic: Episode 95 - Vladimir Putin Hates Breaking The Fourth Wall (w/ Greg Tuculescu)

25 January 2018 - 10:22 AM

That Oscars part stole the show, not just funny, but quite a relief to hear Putin and Pete's put-downs, and you just know those were their true feelings too.
