    Episode 6.1 — Sketches: Day 1

    A few weeks ago Jesse Thorn gave the following advice when it comes to making-fun-of-hacks: - "Ask yourself "Am I Andy Kindler?" and if the answer is "No," don't do it" - I think in terms of meta-sketches, a similar question to ask would be "Am I David Wain?" and if the answer is no, don't do it.

    Ultimate Spiderman. I got the one where Peter Parker dies, and then the first issue with Miles Morales.

    Comic Books

    I just bought my first Marvel issue ever! Wish me luck as I navigate a universe I know NOTHING about!

    Girl Stuff

    Well, I will never deny a vote for Caroline! But I COULD think of some awesome UCB ladies who would make great podcast hosts....hmmmmm....

    Wolf Dead

    Car crash, because earlier Scheer was talking about Kulap and Scott crashing in a car (a Gremlin). BOOM! You just got nerd-served!

    Wolf Dead

    http://www.earwolf.com/episode/comedy-death-scott/ I would tell you WHEN in the episode it happens, but lord god is that a great episode that you should listen to in its entirety.

    Back to School

    I went to LSU. Any other Tigers in the hoooouse? Oh, of course not, because the comedy scene in Baton Rouge is horrible and the school is primarily dumb jocks and sorority girls. Why the hell did I go there.......

    Episode 28 — Did You Miss Me?

    THEY DO! THEY DO ADDRESS THAT! It is one of the major points of conversation in the episode! It has to do with how long the head-stick was.

    Episode 28 — Did You Miss Me?

    I'm with you Julia. I have 5 wearable Earwolf shirts (one is delightfully autographed and thus stays home) so I rarely have to wear anything else (I'm wearing my Enigma Force Five shirt right now). I was just looking at my laundry this weekend and it was pathetic: 5 Earwolf shirts, 2 Maximum Fun shirts, 2 The State shirts, 2 Conan shirts, 2 UCB hoodies, and little to nothing else. God forbid someone think I'm a real live human being with thoughts and feelings that go beyond "Remember that one Mr. Show sketch where they...?" . Also, Jeff Rubin is the best. The episode of his podcast about Legends of the Hidden Temple is a must-hear for people of my age range who worshiped that show growing up (don't pretend like you didn't!).

    Episode 36 — How Did This Get Made?

    Here is the Paul Scheer/Kreayshawn picture http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_lonmelI6Gd1qmam8ao1_1280.gif?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1313065711&Signature=aSJkOBskkM%2FX9OuZNQzXHbk8%2BpY%3D

    Episode 5.2 — Using the Guest: Day 2

    As a fan of Totally Laime who has listened to nearly every episode, I genuinely want to know why they chose that clip. They mentioned being out of town, so maybe they only had limited time or files to work on? Seems like a weird choice. Maybe she wanted to avoid using any of the frequent podcast guests she's had (Harris Wittels, Jen Kirkman, Garfunkel & Oates, Casey Wilson) but...yeah, not the strongest pick.

    Episode 1 — Analyze Phish

    "...or he's already had it down because he's been a door-to-door Phish missionary for the past few years." Julia, I believe you mean phissionary. NAILED IT!

    Episode 1 — Analyze Phish

    @Matt Both, if that makes sense. Scott kind of explains it in the video, but it's a way to classify one-off podcasts, special events, and more. They will each be individual podcasts with their own identities.

    Harris Wittels Needs His Own Podcast

    How does Analyze Phish sound? http://www.earwolf.com/episode/analyze-phish/

    Summah Gum

    I figured we could share reviews and rare finds in our search for Summah Gum. I just tried out Orbit Strawberry Remix. DEFINITE contender. How about youz guyz?

    Episode 4.3 — Recurring Segments: Day 3

    Fanta makes a lot of good points, but let's also look at it this way: You want to introduce a friend to Comedy Bang Bang. You COULD just send them the link and hope that they listen to it themselves. But sometimes I'll find myself in the position of wanting to share a specific bit with a friend. I can remember times I've been at a friends apartment and I've played them iBrain or a particularly funny Would You Rather. In that case it is up to the friend to be so intrigued by what they heard in 2-5 minutes to put the effort into listening to a whole podcast. . I suppose my thinking is that Frank and Peter picked out 10 podcasts that are clearly good. Each of the ten had the potential to win and be part of Earwolf or else they wouldn't have been chosen. You'd think that as part of the Earwolf workforce I'd be ultimately concerned which who is going to win, but I'm actually finding myself more compelled by the coachings and discussions than with the results. Perhaps I fear that two sedentary judges with one guest judge would provide fewer viewpoints and less discussion. . It is all conjecture at this point, and I hope that my posts don't come across as shutting anyone elses opinion down. I think everyone has really neat ideas and I'm glad that the discussion is happening! Maybe I'm simply enjoying the current season so much that I don't want to see changes made and that's why I'm defending the structure so much.

    What guest do you want to see?

    Jamesy moved to NYC!

    RE: Palooka- Personally, as someone who has been in a lot of judging scenarios and gets really emotional, I'd be glad to have the time to collect myself and calm down before I had to speak. Maybe I'm more emotional than most people (I definitely am) but to me the idea of being told you are eliminated and being immediately called upon to be articulate and grateful sounds awful.

    Episode 35 — Murder Sex

    Allan and Angela are both on my "list" (doesn't actually exist) of people I wish were on more podcasts. I was DYING laughing at this episode. Also, if you haven't seen this video of Allan, err, Bane Copperweird, check it out:

    "Boing" - Lame or Laime

    As someone who has listened to a bunch of Totally Laimes, the drops are used totally ironically and inappropriately and the guests always enjoy them and find them hilarious. They have about 5 (pac-man dying, Hallelujah, sheeeeee-it, Windows start up noise, etc) and like Rob said, it's similar to Scott's too-long (or not long enough, in my opinion) song intros.

    Episode 4.3 — Recurring Segments: Day 3

    -I don't disagree that two long-term judges would be good, but listeners are only going to listen to one episode and make a judgment so it's something the podcasts should be prepared for. It amazes me how many NEGATIVE iTunes reviews go up the day after the FIRST episode of a podcast. If someone doesn't like it they give it 0 stars and a mean comment. Listeners make judgments on one episode (if that). I've definitely given up on podcasts within 10 to 15 minutes. It's accurate for how the podcast will be received by listeners.

    Episode 4.3 — Recurring Segments: Day 3

    -Well, look at Totally Laime who already had a recurring segment but made a new one that would better fit the challenge. If you want to use the American Idol metaphor (and I haven't watched American Idol since Season One, so bear with me), there will probably be weeks where a contestant has sung an, I don't know, Aretha Franklin song for years at karaoke so they immediately know which song they'll do and how to stylize it, whereas other weeks they might not even know who Burt Bacharach is. I don't think this challenge was necessarily poised against people who don't have recurring segments, as two of the bottom three were using segments they already had.

    Episode 4.2 — Recurring Segments: Day 2

    Well then I hope Greg Behrendt is a guest judge (he has a bit about Tim Tams, for those who aren't ridic nerds)!

    Episode 4.2 — Recurring Segments: Day 2

    @Daniel: Soccer? Don't you mean footy? NAILED IT! Hey, Tim Tams, amirite? I am SO culturally diverse you guyz!

    Episode 15.5 — Minisode 16

    Throw in a couple of shorter ones, you guys. Pithy is almost always funnier and think about the length of the submissions that usually get read on air.
