    Episode 525 - 2017 Holiday Spectacular

    one has to assume that Adomian and Rory Scovel are the primary audience for the reverb-laden live drum performances over Todd's PA system

    Episode 525 - 2017 Holiday Spectacular

    Adomian elicited the craziest laughing fits I've had all year with this appearance. So unexpected and incredible. Thank you Scott for continuing to invite him and thanks James for bringing it so hard even though you're busier than ever.

    Episode 424 - Almost Parasites

    She's talking about Hollywood and how female actresses can't get roles after a certain age. It's riffing on conversations like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPpsI8mWKmg Seems to fit in right with Berlant's whole aesthetic. Glad she is finally a part of the CBB canon! She's fantastic. Scott definitely tried to pick on her because she was a bit jittery out of the gates, but she settled in. Drew Tarver is a fucking lunatic and it's great.

    Episode 426 - Schwartz & Schwarts

    Can anyone ID the woman who sat in on the recording from the episode photos? Is that Horatio's wife?
  5. I think one more year of these episodes and I'll finally figure out which one is Sean and which one is Hayes

    Episode 419 - The 7th Anniversary Show!

    I think this episode might be the "Brodown Hoedown" that Scott & Jason have been talking about for years
  7. Jason has been one of my favorite Earwolf/comedian personalities for awhile, but the interview at the top of this episode really drew me in even further. My parents are fairly hippyish and I'm from California, but I related immensely to the stuff about emotional stoicism in his family. I related to having a younger sister you try wrestling moves on. I realized we both say "you know?!" after we make statements that we want people to understand. Jason, YA GREAT.

    Episode 416 - Silicone Bralley Poo Crew

    Please explain to us how what's funny and/or offensive is totally objective and based on rationality? That's an insane POV, to me. What people enjoy or are offended by seems to me to be wholly subjective. I am very against censorship and promote free expression, but this is the kind of talk that gives a bad name to people who believe that comedy is a thoughtful and necessary way to push boundaries in society.

    Episode 416 - Silicone Bralley Poo Crew

    Anyone else catch how Martin actually DID start doing a stereotypical South Asian voice right at Kumail? I'm trying to find a time stamp on it right now, someone post it if you remember. It was in the background and only for a hot minute. The inherent funniness vs the low hanging stereotype fruit of the "Asian accent" is great at highlighting the fundamental tensions in comedy. I struggle to intellectualize the issue all the time because it really isn't intellectual why many people enjoy it--we like laughing at "the other". It's not to say that the other is bad, just different. And different is funny. Personally, I feel like Middleditch has enough interesting wrinkles that play against the type to keep things interesting. Like someone mentioned earlier, if it was just talking about being a bad driver and doing math it would be even more problematic. I think jokes about doing tai chi instead of kung fu and "fat boy" are more nuanced.
  10. In taking my yearly pilgrimage to 2 Talk Town by listening to every episode in order, I stumbled across this new Hugh2 news: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/edge-u2-have-50-ideas-for-next-album-20160329 The very possibility that new U2 touring/material could provoke another episode recording is a joyous enough feeling to warrant this post. Thanks Scotts for the greatest podcasting story of all time that wasn't told week to week.

    Episode 408 - LIVE at SXSW 2016

    I dislike the circle jerkiness of the Earwolf boards, so I won't cut you down for expressing an opinion. Thanks for having one! But I will say that Gino Lambardo is my favorite CBB character of all time and its not close.

    Episode 401 - LOVE Is Thicker Than Water

    i would love to see Alan come back and do an episode with Fourvel again. the live episode with PFT and Bobby is one of my all time favorite live eps. the bit PFT does about arguing with his ex-wife about alimony kills me.

    Episode 403 - This Ain't Now, This is Then

    i'll put my vote in for "Thibaut LeBeau", actually

    Episode 400 - The War on Surfing

    This tour made my year, Scotty. I bought eight tickets. Also, The Fox theater is in Oakland, not SF. But we all knew what you meant.
