  1. 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:

    Episode 62 — Joyful Noise

    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!
  7. 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.
  9. 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.

    Episode 103 — Photography

    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?
  15. Are you by any chance familiar with the work of Jerry Haleva?
  16. 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.
  18. Since seeing that toiletfan video, this has become the worst day of my life.

    Episode 217 — The WTF Hour

    I would happily listen to a podcast where these gentlemen shot the shit once a week, perhaps over some sort of light meal. Potential titles: Dining with Scott and Maron Marc & Scott Eat Snacks Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Y'know what, nevermind.
  20. UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. Had any of you bothered spending even 15 minutes playing the original Stop or My Mom Will Shoot game for the SNES before watching this movie, all of the questions you had about the backstory would have been answered.
