  • Great podcast as always guys. Just finish watching “The Kings of Summer” and it was AMAZING. So funny and original. So well cast! I have already told some friends about it. Enjoy your burrito!

  • Truly appreciated the talk about the weather in LA,as I was listening while shoveling a foot of snow off of my roof in Michigan(although not the UP)…yeah…hello back to you too universe

  • Truly appreciated the talk about the weather in LA and the mention of some guy in Michigan hearing that and being like, “WTF?” as I was listening while shoveling a foot of snow off of my roof in Michigan(although not the UP)…yeah…hello back to you too universe

  • Woah, someone whose dad was a professional fur trapper?! I never hear that from anyone. I’m a little happy that I’m not the only one in the universe anymore…

  • @ Chris your idea of layering the podcast while you were talking about it, made me think of the Dr. Who episode “Blink”. The idea of it made me think of Tennant talking to Sally Sparrow through dvd easter eggs ( :

  • I am not in any way bashing this guy, I think its great having another creative voice out there doing what they love. But, and yes Jonah is one of the biggest culprits for this, can’t we talk without using “like” every 3 seconds? Just curious but I will deal with it.

  • 0 for 3 so far this week. Get better guests. Or at least make the podcast less guest centric. Indoor kids for example is consistent no matter who the guest is. The guest mixes with the pod instead of taking over and alienating people who maybe aren’t familiar or don’t care for the guest. I like pretty horses.

  • You guys recorded this on my Birthday! Ahhhh . . . what a nice present. And he is from Michigan where I am from. Always love seeing locals doing well. I remember seeing a trailer for that movie thinking it was interesting. Now I am going to have to check it out. Thanks Chris and guys for bringing in so many different new people. I have been checking out a lot of new stuff because of this pod cast. Actually there is almost too much info to have time for!

  • I love me some Kumail, but I’ve gotta agree with Jordan about the GTA games. Don’t give me this over-wrought story submerged in clunky mechanics. Give me just enough to justify the FUN of a sandbox.
