Greetings fellow citizens of SPONTANEANATION--both native born and naturalized! I had an idea, probably not a very good one as it has made me stop and consider the amount of free time I'm squandering, to compile a list of the guest questions asked on each episode. And while I feel like it would be a handy resource to easily find which question was asked on each episode and provide the probably* identity for each of the question askers (which I get the feeling may be a relief for Mr. Tompkins), I felt, more importantly, that it would give people an opportunity, should they feel so inclined, to answer the questions themselves! I am of the opinion that everyone has a story, and while all of the guests have been wonderful, I don't feel like you need to be a big time, Hollywood hotshot to tell a fascinating tale. If the interest in this thread is there, I will update the list on a weekly basis, if not, well...I guess it will just die a wretched and piteous death--forgotten deep within the bowels of the forums. Feel free to answer as many as you'd like, I would ask only one thing: please, please, please be respectful! I have been a forum member for a year and haven't run into too many assholes, but if someone says something you don't agree with--and you don't have the capacity to engage in courteous or considerate debate--please withhold your comment and just ignore it. This is not to say that "joke" answers/responses are discouraged, respond any way you want; however, if you decide to conduct yourself in an unmannerly way, I will have no other recourse than to leave your post ignored and "un-liked." So, here it goes: Ep.1 "What is your favorite thing to eat when you are feeling sad? And, if you don't feed your feelings like I do, why are you a robot?"--Busy Phillips Ep. 2 "Do you have a perpetual age in your head--that when you think of yourself--you think of yourself at that age? And, if so, what is the age and why?"--Michael McMillian Ep. 3 "Who was your hero growing up--fictional or otherwise ("otherwise" meaning real)? And, if you could, would you trade places with that hero?" -- Jason Ritterj Ep. 4 "What was the first time you experienced the emotion 'humiliation?'" -- Melanie Lynsky Ep. 5 "If someone asked you when you were thirteen years old, 'Who are the five people you would invite to a dinner party?' who would you have said?" -- Dave Foley Ep. 6 "Where were you when you realized God was a wholly implausible lie?" -- Maria Thayer Ep. 7 "What's your favorite invention?" -- Kaitlin Olson Ep. 8 "What do you like most about yourself?" -- Elizabeth Reaser Ep. 9 "What animal would you save from extinction if you could?" -- Michael Sheen Ep. 10 "What is the earliest memory you have of doing something 'cruel?'" -- Justin Kirk Ep. 11 "What is the thing you desire that you are most ashamed of desiring?" -- Aimee Mann Ep. 12 "Do you have social anxiety, and if so, how does it manifest?" -- Open Mike Eagle Ep. 13 "Why did you choose that outfit today?" -- Colin Hanks Ep. 14 "Did you ever name your car? If not, what the Hell is wrong with you?" -- John Hodgeman Ep. 15 "Do you believe in ghosts? Where is your evidence?" -- Jen Kirkman Ep. 16 "Why would you never talk to your cousin--if you needed a reason?" -- Aaron Abrams Ep. 17 "You win a contest that entitles you to draft a 28th Amendment to the Constitution, guaranteed to pass, the only stipulation is it must be 'food related.' What is your Amendment?" -- Paget Brewster Ep. 18 "Gun to your head: choose a reality competition show to come to your home." -- Raphael Bob-Waksberg Ep. 19 "Sir or Madam, how do you sleep at night?" -- Lisa Hanawalt Ep. 20 "When was the last time you felt 'furious?'" --Scott Carter Ep. 21 "What ridiculous formality do you slavishly observe?" -- Jonathan Coulton Ep. 22 "If you were forced to make a career change, and your success was guaranteed, what would you do?" -- Bob Kerr Ep. 23 "What was the last thing you've done that you considered 'brave?'" -- Derek Waters Ep. 24 "When did you realize that you weren't alone?" -- Kumail Nanjiani * I am guessing that this list is accurate based on the release of each episode; however, I know that a couple of live episodes have been recorded but not yet released. I don't know if that skews the "question asker" to "answer giver" format or if the live episodes are their own separate beasts all together.
People I think it would be neat for you to be able to have as guests would be: Penn Jillette or James Randi, both are totally awesome, very articulate and funny people. I don't know what topis you'd have them on for, maybe something like Skepticism or something like that, but I just wanted to say that they are people I'd love to hear on the podcast. Thanks guys, I love the podcast and eagerly await each one.
