    FYI I signed up for the annual plan using the web client with my login but my auto renewal kept going. So this month I got charged twice; the app and web client don't seem to be too aware of each other's payment method. So if you do sign up for an annual plan, make sure you cancel any auto payment on your phone.

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    Considers himself a 'pick-up artist' Doesn't feel comfortable calling women 'broads', but is fine with 'pieces of ass' Is humourless Loves saying words, then following them up with 'that was a joke'/'that's from my comedy routine' Loves to talk over people Loves to stop people from making a point, so he can say 'Listen' Doesn't really listen Who would have guessed this could have gone poorly.

    Episode 198— Fear and Living Well

    Whew nothing to add, but just want to reiterate that this was a fantastic episode featuring an amazing guest. Also, stephanie is crazy. I feel like I have a good appetite for pizza, and have eaten a large by myself in the past. But 3???? I'm excited to see her try.

    EPISODE 336 — NOT Farts and Procreation 4

    This has been a tough few days dealing with this loss. The legacy Harris has left in all of the podcasts he has been a part of has really been what has got me through this. When I listen to them, I can't help but find his humour so fresh, even though I've heard it before it manages to catch me off guard. Thank you Scott for putting this out, and for eulogizing to a certain extent in the beginning. You might not have been the best person to eulogize him in a general sense, but for me and many others on this forum, we always had the treat of hearing Harris alongside you on this podcast or in UTU2TM or Analyze Phish, and so hearing you speak about Harris as a person is really what I needed to hear. I teared up during it, and then I loved the episode, and loved the post episode collection of his jokes. But when it ended, I was hit with a level of emotion I wasn't expecting. I guess it finally feels real, whereas before I was holding on to some sliver of hope that it would all be a hoax. I'm glad I was alone listening, because I reached a level of bawling that I was not prepared for. Harris was incredible, one of the best, and I'm thankful we got to have one more time with him. I'm glad to hear he's enjoying himself in the afterlife.

    We will miss you Harris

    I'm still feeling so sad today. Losing Ryan Davis a couple of years ago made me realize the unique one-side friendship that podcasts have the ability to create, due to their intimate nature. And it's what makes these tragedies feel so personal and devastating. I remember exactly where I was when I first heard Harris on Comedy Bang Bang, waiting at a train station in Ottawa. It was just after one of Ice-T's problematic ideas, and when he brought out his phone I fell in love with his sense of humour. There was always a charm and lovable quality with his delivery that made his jokes great, and lent itself to anti-comedy so well. And ever since, I've delighted in every one of his appearances on this and other earwolf shows. I think some of my favourite jokes by him were his extremely convoluted ones, like: "Did you guys hear about that new deal where if you, you go in on it with a cast member from That '70s Show? You get a discount on mustard and/or salad toppings. It's a Laura Prepon Grey Poupon Crouton Groupon". And I have a sneaking suspicion based on his jokes like that that he made some contribution to the great parks and rec throwaway news headline "Ice Town costs Ice Clown his Town Crown". It sucks, it's painful, it's in many ways unbelievable, but what's getting me through it is re-listening to his comedy. Even in this sad state, and knowing that I will never hear anything new from him, I still can't help but laugh at everything he does. He was a special, talented man, and my heart goes out to all of his friends and family.

    They did on the website at least.
  7. It was very fun and we hope you come back. In terms of being outraged (Is anyone grievously offended by "cunt"?) at just the n-word, it's because racial sensitivity is what matters to her on a personal level. I understand you were emphasizing context, however she found the context of a white person confidently announcing to a room of mostly white people that it is okay problematic. There were some other things, but these are discussions better left for Case Closed, I just thought I would share that I could see Case Closed doing well in a bonus episode. I think the two sides have validity: it's silly to just never be able to say a word, and why can't white people just recognize the vile origins of this word and let it go. Personally, I just avoid it altogether because there is nothing to gain by saying it and plenty to lose.
  8. Musical episodes should definitely not be changed at all. They're great, they've introduced me to some great new bands. If people don't like it, it's very clear that it is a musical episode up front and they can skip it. Case closed, also something I enjoy, is something I would enjoy keeping in the episode. It's so easy to skip through the segment if you don't enjoy it. That being said, I know a lot of people don't like it and I wouldn't mind it coming out as a bonus episode labelled as Case Closed for their sake. I just went to see Matt Besser in Vancouver do I4H last weekend. And to the great outrage of my girlfriend, during the Q&A portion Matt said how it's okay to say the N-word and then proceeded to say it. It completely ruined the night for her, and so I can see how Case Closed could put people off of the show. Which is to say that I guess I'm leaning more towards putting Case Closed in a bonus episode.

    Episode 293 — Monster Muscles

    It was the repetition, but even more so it was how poorly the loop was done, going like 75% of a beat too long. Man, that's the best plugs theme ever, I've never laughed so hard so immediately at one of those.

    Episode 125 — Live from SXSW!

    Wow, that was an incredible show from start to finish. I haven't laughed that hard in a while, great job by all of the improvisers!
  11. http://scottaukerman.tumblr.com/post/66252923297/sirmitchell-patbaer-on-sunday-at-the-cards I found this really touching. If you're not familiar with Ryan Davis, he was a great podcasting personality that was on the Giant Bombcast which is a podcast focussed on video games. Earlier this year he died at the age of 34, just days after his wedding. He was a big fan of CBB, and particularly, Bob Ducca. So Seth Morris was asked to record something in tribute to him despite never meeting him, and came up with another incredible list. I love Seth Morris. RIP Ryan Davis

    Episode 245 — Poehler Ice Caps

    I'm so glad to see that Neil's previous little boys at the pool rap was not just a one-hit wonder. He's got some serious rapping chops. In addition to his many other chops.

    Episode 164 — Olympic Orgies

    The Jay and Dan podcast has gone dark since the move to L.A. so this is a welcome update from them.

    Episode 120 — Live from Portland / Law

    Surly indeed. Although there were certainly some good members of the audience, especially the one who thought to ask to see Kyle's calves.

    Show us your Earwolf swag!!

    I have the CBB season 2 t-shirt. I'll try and post a picture tomorrow night. The quality of the print doesn't look great on either of their faces.
