    Episode 322 - Live from the SF Sketchfest

    It wasn't THAT long ago that I heard Kulap giving an update on the documentary on a different podcast. I assume it's been slower going than expected but it hasn't been abandoned.

    Episode 128 — Hashtag Morris

    Just listened to this ep for the first time. Kept thinking that he sounded so much like Harris, so of course he was good friends with him. So sad when he started joking about Harris's (not yet a reality) death

    Episode 283 - Spiritual Toddler

    Hahaha...I'm getting mixed messages from Scotty Too Hotty and Kremer...should I use proflowers.com or not?!

    EPISODE 258 — Spit It and Quit It

    Well, but you seemed to be saying at first that it's not sexist to think she has a weird voice because Howard has a weird voice as well--but then by saying you liked his voice but didn't like hers, you seemed to be arguing completely against your point. I just didn't understand why you would even bring that up. Obviously, people can like and dislike whatever voices they want. But it's a problem when large groups of women who happen to speak a certain way are dismissed by many men and women simply because of their voices.

    EPISODE 258 — Spit It and Quit It

    But...that does come off as a little sexist, right? You're saying a man's "weird as hell" voice doesn't bother you, but this woman's voice does. It's okay to not love certain people's voices, but it's a problem when huge groups of women are not taken seriously because their voice has vocal fry or they uptalk. It should be the content of what a person is saying that matters. (This is also my only problem with Lake Bell's otherwise wonderful "In A World")
  6. Has anyone been listening to Space Cave? I'm listening to the first episode right now and I'm enjoying it! He gets to stay on topic with his knowledgeable guest and it's very interesting! I also really enjoy the intro music. Am I allowed to talk about a non-earwolf podcast on the earwolf forums?

    Lil Davey Huntsberger's New Podcast

    Ooh it was included in Podmass! http://www.avclub.com/detail/sonia-manzanos-real-life-influence-sesame-streets--225205

    It's likely that I will be subscribing, but two things (mostly already mentioned here) sadden me a little bit: 1) That podcasts that have ended, such as Professor Blastoff, will eventually completely disappear behind the pay wall. Would it be possible to have some of the most recent episodes always available? I understand Analyze Phish is safe, which is nice. But what about Tiny Calves, Beach Poop, and The Wig?! 2) That the commercials might be disappearing. I hope there's an option in the Howl app to listen to the commercials! I enjoy the handwork most of the podcasters put into them! I don't want to lose Howard Kremer's goofy readings.

    EPISODE 243 — An Inconvenient Convenient Store

    Natasha and Howard must not have seen 50 Cent on The Nightly Show...

    EPISODE 217 — Goodbye

    I, too, was hoping for an Aaron call or something along those lines (pizza eating contest, Name That Punky, etc). But maybe what the hosts needed was to honestly express their sadness over the show ending, and didn't have it in themselves to perform any of their more entertaining bits. I appreciate that David and Kyle seem pretty bummed over the show's ending, haha. Also, the final tweets from the Professor Blastoff account were pretty sweet and maybe would leave a better taste in your mouth.

    EPISODE 217 — Goodbye

    Goodbye favorite podcast... I think I could accept the ending of ProBlast better if I knew Tig, Kyle, David, and Aaron would still be hanging out together. Don't drift apart, you guys! Haha. We can't control that, or course, but can we at least pester them to have a Super Bowl pizza eating contest as Tig mentioned?

    EPISODE 216 — Optogenetics

    Gosh darn it this episode was so great that I am now extra saddened that the podcast is ending. I understand if they don't want to, but I would listen the heck out of just Kyle and David--they've been seeming to get along a lot better lately! And what a charming, knowledgable guest!

    RIP Professor Blastoff

    Great now I'm tearing up in Starbucks. I was nervous the end was approaching--but was still shocked to hear the news today. I was just wishing Aaron would return, and now instead none of them will be returning. It was great seeing the Blastoff gang in Tig's documentary. Now that scene (does this count as a spoiler?) with David, Kyle, Aaron, and Tig jumping up and down shirtless on the hill will seem extra bittersweet.

    Episode 211 — Flatulence

    Thank you, I was about to comment!

    EPISODE 235 — Vision Impaired, Still Prepared

    Great ep so far, but I have to pause to say one thing: Mad Max is about nothing and is vapid?! What?! I've seen few action movies that are more meaningful than Fury Road

    EPISODE 210 — Anticipation

    I hope people didn't give up on this episode because of sound quality issues. It was all worth it for MOTHER!

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    I felt a little bad for the guy but NOPE there are much more worthy subjects of my pity than him

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    I will always appreciate David thanks to this ep. And oh my gosh Ross is somehow behaving even more disgustingly on Twitter right now.

    Episode 202 — Pickup Artist

    I usually hate to criticize guests on the forums, for fear that they will read it, but... What an oblivious, misogynistic guest. And I was willing to give him a chance at first, when he was so adamant that he wasn't like most scummy pick up artists. But then he just got scummier and scummier. Thank goodness for the Blastoff crew, especially David, for not letting this guy get away with what he was saying.

    EPISODE 336 — NOT Farts and Procreation 4

    Cried. Laughed laughed laughed. Cried. And then cried some more while reading everybody's comments. The part that really got to me was when Harris brought up "Riddle Me This." I don't know if Scott was only pretending to be surprised that Harris listens to the podcast or not, but it was so touching.

    Episode 184 — Reader Mail

    Welp, looks like most of us really appreciate David and don't want him to ever feel like he has to leave. :>

    Episode 180 — Horses

    I'm saddened to read this kind of criticism. Not every story is meant to be lough out loud funny. I really appreciated his story. Also--David barely reacted to what Kyle said. Why is he getting called out for it so much?

    Episode 180 — Horses

    Also--Tig directed a question to "Erin" at one point and for a split second I thought Aaron was back! I miss Aaron.

    Episode 180 — Horses

    I don't think David wants out and I would be very sad if he did leave. He plays just as important a part as the other two do. This isn't JUST a comedy podcast--sometimes they express their true reactions/hurt feelings to things. Like people do. Like all three did at the end of the podcast. I thought this was a great ep, thanks to Tig, Kyle, David, and Erin!
