  • Hey Todd and Daniel! Loved the DC ep with the two of you in the hotel room. You started a new bit, “I went on Ancestry.com….” Can I make the following submission?
    “I went on Ancestry.com and I found out I have… syphilis!”

    The more absurd the better! ;-)

  • Hi Todd
    I wanted to thank you for show 84. it was great listening to your facinating conversation with Daniel and Kevin.
    I am not intellectually disabled (note1) myself, as i have an above average IQ and have the paperwork to prove it. but there was\is something wrong.

    Dyslexia was not a thing when I was at school and i left school before testing was available (I’m 45) but I recon, from what I have read and listened to, that’s what I am.

    So I was put in the can’t learn/ won’t learn class at school and suffered the bullying and ridicule with my fellow problem learners. Although I am a reasonably successful self employed theatre technician now I still have the spell check kick in every other word.
    (including the words dyslexia and technician)

    I can thank you on behalf of we unconventionally brained for standing up for us.

    My own difference I have come to recognise is an advantage in a lot of ways as I can come up with solutions to problems while the more conventionally brained are still thinking it through.

    I thank my parents for insisting on the IQ test in 2nd grade. it mean’t I knew I was not intellectually disabled. I think without that I may have had a much tougher time mentally dealing with the abuse, and it still hurt me badly. how those with an intellectual disability must feel about the almost constant societal abuse about something they can do nothing about can only be understood by maybe LGBT people .

    I have heard the maxim that in comedy you should “punch up” attack those more powerful, richer or influential than yourself What are your thoughts.

    Note 1 wiki says
    (The terms used for this condition are subject to a process called the euphemism treadmill. This means that whatever term is chosen for this condition, it eventually becomes perceived as an insult. The terms mental retardation and mentally retarded were invented in the middle of the 20th century to replace the previous set of terms, which were deemed to have become offensive. By the end of the 20th century, these terms themselves have come to be widely seen as disparaging and politically incorrect and in need of replacement.[2] The term intellectual disability or intellectually challenged is now preferred by most advocates in most English-speaking countries. The AAIDD have defined intellectual disability to mean the same thing as mental retardation.[3] Currently, the term mental retardation is used by the World Health Organization in the ICD-10 codes, which has a section titled “Mental Retardation” (codes F70–F79). In the future, the ICD-11 is expected to replace the term mental retardation with intellectual disability, and the DSM-5 is expected to replace it with intellectual developmental disorder.[4][5] Because of its specificity and lack of confusion with other conditions, mental retardation is still sometimes used professional medical settings around the world, such as formal scientific research and health insurance paperwork.[6])
