  • I won’t even lie, I totally watched iCarly when it was on, and it was pretty hilarious. Jeannette and Chris both had some interesting things to say.

    I kind of cringe when people judge the “Millennials” by our pop culture and fashion sense as if that’s our only dimension. I go to uni with and interact with tons of interesting, intelligent, hardworking students everyday.

    Anyway Jeannette sounds awesome and I was refreshed by her honesty and I wish her the best okay bye.

  • I’m a kid at heart and loved icarly from season 3 on then backtracked… Hilarious show’s she has done and like her pop/country songs although I kinda think her character on Sam & Cat tries a little too hard and is a little too mean and harsh to the other characters but I love Jennette and Sam & Cat…#VeryFunny

    Did anyone catch an early episode of law & order she did early in her career I think even before icarly as a child star Where she portrayed a gripping and chilling character as a child bully/killer who get’s away with murder with probation and psychological counseling only to go on to not learn her lesson…By The Way Miranda Cosgrove did a totally separate, unrelated eposide of Law & Order You should check these episodes out if you have Netflix.

  • They wasted too much time before getting to the interview. When Sam & Cat ends, I wonder what Jennette will do. It may end her career because she decided not to pursue a serious singing career. She can do drama better than comedy, so I hope that she will find a gig on the big screen. I’ll bet she could win an Oscar.

  • was linked to this podcast from the recommendation thingy below a sam&cat video on facebook.
    This podcast was surprisingly insightful, almost like Jennette without the typical interview censure. I just wish you guys let her talk more shit about her tour and her stage fright.

  • I know they weren’t talking exactly to me but seriously so cool having them oddly saying my name on the podcast. I will totally talk Frasier with you Matt!!! I love that show!

  • Enjoyed the interview, have not seen any of Sam & Cat but enjoyed iCarly it was a good sitcom even if I’m not in its target demographic, I like good solid stories and as an aspiring writer like to see how different genres are structured and written, so had started watching the show just out of curiosity but became a fan, loved Jerry Trainor, as Spencer, great slap stick actor, reminded me of Peter Scolari on the TV show Honey I Shrunk the Kids… and yes get Jennette back for more…

  • Just wanted to say that I thought it was a great episode and wanted to thank her from coming on the podcast, seriously I know she came off as a little guarded and maybe a little overwhelmed but doing that type of interview that’s as open as that must be scary.

    Usually when child stars (especially leads) do interviews their always on message so you rarely get any sort of insight into who they are as a person because the interviews are short, highly controlled and their portraying an image.

    For example a couple of months ago parents were in uproar that Selena Gomez swore at a recent concert (she was frustrated that a microphone wasnt working and had the bad luck that it came back on whilst she’d said the word).

    So it must have been extremely hard to let her guard down just that little bit and be relaxed enough to actually swear on record and actually tell us the truth about her short lived record career.

    Maybe if she comes back after Sam and Cat has finished she’ll actually be in a position to open up more and Chris and Matt wont have to lead the conversation as much or fill space.

    Anyway I know Jennette probably wont see this but I wanted to say thanks for letting us in a little.

  • Absolutely loved the episode and have been a fan of Jennette from her iCarly days. Which makes me wonder when we will hear Dan Schneider on the podcast?
    Also Matt was brilliant in this and can’t wait til there is Frasier cast member episode to add a new chapter to “Push through the Fear Laugh: The Matt Mira Story”?

  • This was great! I definitely feel a lot like Jennette in that I retreat into myself because I feel like people don’t understand me (my comedy) and I’m slowly becoming aware of that. And it’s cool because I’ve always been a big fan of hers and never knew she felt like that!

    All the advice you gave her was great stuff, Chris, and I feel like I can apply it to my situation. Thanks so much! Looking forward to hearing her on Pete’s show.

  • Great podcast. I didn’t know who she was going in and now after listening I’m interested in seeing what she does next (especially if it’s Pete’s show). Also I think it’s awesome that you encourage people to try comedy or anything else for that matter.

  • I’m well outside the target demographic of iCarly and Sam & Cat but I was pleasantly surprised by Jennette and this podcast. She won me over at liking (Steven) Brody Stevens. :)

  • Fun podcast! I’ve always liked Jennette, she’s cool.

    Kinda disappointed she won’t be traveling the ‘Miley’ route though, I would’ve enjoyed seeing her on a wrecking ball.

  • Whoa- whoa – whoa.
