    Episode 81 — Finger Fuckers

    While cute, your response doesn't actually address the question of why there are four accounts originating from your IP. Or, less deliberately obtuse, you didn't want to risk the possibility that throwing shade at Besser would affect your reputation as a self-proclaimed "rabid fan", and created a convenient anonymous account from behind which to snipe. Which would be extra ironic, given the fact that this Case Closed imbroglio began with Besser's reaction to people hiding behind online anonymity to broadcast hate about Jason Collins. Protip: Playing both the "I am a rabid fan" and "ban me I don't care" cards in the same post diminishes the credibility of either position. The bottom line is that the forums have recently experienced an influx of people registering accounts for the express purpose of shitting on a particular host or guest. Under Shannon's benevolent guidance, we take a very light touch toward moderation, and you'll note that few (if any) of them are banned for their efforts. The last thing we need are "fans" pulling the same shit. If you are, knock it off.

    Uh huh. And I suppose you conveniently also happen to have two additional roommates that registered the two other accounts associated with your IP address?

    RIP Spirit Bear, I find it totally unsurprising that you support Astartes' earlier comments, because both you and Astartes have been posting from the same IP address, in some cases only minutes apart. Would you care to explain this?

    Episode 29 — Nothing But Net

    Shout out to Jeff Garlin for his unannounced guest spot this week. His new mixtape "Herb Your Confusiasm" drops June 1.

    To her credit, with a baby on the way, you should probably devote more time to watching comedy specials.
  6. Having no familiarity with Best Show, I imagine the look on my face right now is the same one I've seen on certain friends after trying to introduce them to Comedy Bang Bang…

    Episode 146.5 — Sklarbro County 51

    I am, but I liked it a lot too. I thought there was plenty of room for Maron to be himself, but it didn't mess with the usual feel of the show like his appearance on CBB did. And DC Pierson before him, and Jen Kirkman before him. This is the Sacred Unwritten Contract of Podcasting; comedians give us so many hours of enjoyment for free, with the understanding that they will periodically carpetbomb us when they have product to move. Counting down from 1, Rule #-3 of podcasts is "It's okay to turn it off if you're not feeling it."

    Episode 62 — Joyful Noise


    I honestly expected this to go the other way, with a response like:

    I'll just leave this here… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOwblaKmyVw (Not a Miley Cyrus fan, but I think this is pretty great. Dolly Parton is apparently her godmother.)

    Let June speak!

    This statement has all the advantages of being insulting, deliberately obtuse, and wrong. Congratulations! HTDGM is not a "comedy podcast"; it is a movie discussion podcast hosted by comedians. Given their preparation beforehand, their critical analysis, and their attempts to divine the intent of those responsible for insane artistic choices, it's more or less the opposite of a "riff-fest". NachoMother, to your point, there was a recent (and lengthy) discussion of June getting cut off in the comments for the Spice World episode. Rest assured, plenty of other listeners agree with you.

    Episode 1 — Cat Ranch Chaos

    Cat Boss!
  12. I'm starting up a Case Closed Fantasy League, and my first round draft pick is: @mattbesser vs. @TimTebow: Why The Jets Suck

    Episode 28 — No Blacks, No Jews, No Asians

    This is the first episode I've listened to (I'm barely able to stay on top of my 36 other podcasts subscriptions at the moment) thanks to PFT's endorsement of Open Mike Eagle after the Harvard & Stone fiasco. Loved the show. Now I'm going to have to decide which of the 36 others to kill so I can make room for Shots Fired in my weekly rotation. And find time to listen to the preceding 27 episodes. God damn.
  14. Both on FYI and the Bad Movie Recommendations forum, it's starting to seem like people are racing to see who can be the most hipster-blasé, with recommendations like The Avengers, or Iron Man 3, or R.I.P.D. two months before its release. If there were a proper emoticon for "wanking motion", I would be using it so hard right now.

    Episode 103 — Photography

    Speaking of photography, the photos on this week's episode page are from last week's episode with Jackie Kashian.

    Cant' Stream Podcasts

    First and foremost, I don't work for Earwolf, so none of my statements should be construed as such, and none of the things you attribute to "me" apply. Second, given the monumental effort involved in migrating their entire audio catalog from LibSyn to SoundCloud, Earwolf no doubt had compelling reasons for doing so (be it cost savings, technological capability, integration with their home-grown ad network, etc.) and did not proceed lightly. Third, given your sample size of (what, three?) people in this thread, compared to the hundreds of thousands of subscribers Earwolf shows boast, I'd wager you are grossly overestimating the percentage of listeners affected by the switchover to SoundCloud. Fourth, even for the tiny fraction of affected users, there are a variety of means available to those who are (again) actively seeking to violate their companies' IT policies. Download a podcast app to your phone. Subscribe via iTunes and sync before heading to work. Stream over your 3G/4G connection. Set up a VPN and tunnel your browser connection through it. Whatever. None of the above warrant showing up in the forums to puke a snide, self-entitled demand for ANSWERS at the people kind enough to provide you with hundreds of hours of free entertainment every year.

    Episode 61.5 — Minisode 61.5

    Shariq and Gabe may be able to resolve this problem if they know what browser/operating system you are using.

    That was a really good transition.

    Cant' Stream Podcasts

    It's now Earwolf's responsibility to figure out a way to circumvent your employer's explicit desire that you not listen to podcasts during the hours they pay you to perform work? Really?
  20. Are you by any chance familiar with the work of Jerry Haleva?
  21. According to Lauren, live shows are posted to the Earwolf channel 10 days after the episode is recorded.

    Episode 215 — Time Bobby 2

    "One Week" is so awful it makes "Flagpole Sitta" seem like "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in comparison.
