    @Chase Roper, I'm from Olympia but currently going to school in Boston.

    Live, non-funny, musical guests: I'm not on board.

    Here's my issue with the musical acts: what makes CBB so great is Scott's extremely dry sense of humor. The listener never really knows if he is being sincere in anything he says, and usually he's not. But the guests he has on are these musicians he is a big fan of, and suddenly everything he says to them is sincere. It gets rid of the dry, awkward humor. Scott clearly loves music, and has great taste, and I would love a different show in which Scott talked more seriously with musicians (and actors and comedians, even) but it doesn't work for the style of CBB. It's the same issue I have when Scott has guests on who he doesn't know well, and may feel intimidated by. He tries to turn the show into a more straightforward interview show, and the magic of CBB is gone. The best example of this is the Paul Reubens episode. It was an interesting interview, but it wasn't Comedy Bang Bang (or was it still CDR at that point?)

    Can Harris Wittels become a Co-Host.

    OK, but like...can that please actually happen? Like...actually.

    More like classic Ryan if I'm remembering this bit correctly.

    Remember when Ryan didn't understand that Conrad was making a joke and got pissed at him for not understanding jokes? Classic.

    Episode 2 — Analyze Phish Episode 2

    Haven't had a chance to listen yet, but seeing a new episode of Analyze Phish on the Earwolf home page brightened my day almost as much as finding out about Arrested Development's return to TV did yesterday.

    Episode 122 — Shanghaied by Irene

    Steve, I think Scott cuts the song off early when he feels especially self conscious in front of the guests.
