  • I saw that Jen Kirkman was going to be on the show a few days ago, and have been anticipating this since. It’s finally fckin Friday. Oh, and don’t forget Todd’s show is on right after Maron!

  • If I let it take me, Adagio for Strings can make me a little misty eyed. Reckoner by Radiohead is up there too. But yeah… I guess Monster is sort of sad, too.

    I know Jen mostly from her chats with Paul F Tompkins. It was weird hearing her converse in a different dynamic. Pete was green lights all the way, where as Paul would be pumping the breaks left and right to grill Jen on some of her sillier assertions. I don’t think we were shorted any silliness as a result, enjoyable episode all around.

  • I have to say, I love this show…but this one was just wonderful. What a delight Jen was as a guest. I believe she summed up her beliefs more eloquently and clearly than any previous guest. Not that the other guests were wrong or bad, just this one really hit the nail on the head. It’s a hard thing to know how to explain your beliefs, and I think you Jen should give yourself a little bit of a break. I think you know yourself and what you want a bit more than you give yourself credit for. Chin up girl you are on the right path! She is never going to read this…

  • Oh, my sweet Cthulu… I *AM* an “Aunt Jenny!!!”

    And you know what? It’s pretty farking AWESOME!!! Spoil the kids for an afternoon or a whole weekend, then hand them back to their parents when the nesting urge has passed and the little ones are FULL of candy! HUZZAH!!

  • Two random thoughts –

    #1. Have never seen couples flirt on Twitter when I knew they were in the same room, but text flirting for just the two of you in the living room is kinda hot.

    #2. Jan and Pete should totally fuck.

  • I, as well, want to know why Pete cries to Kanye’s “Monster.”

    Also, Pete, on the off chance you see this, I think you’d really like the Roy Andersson film “Songs from the Second Floor” there is a scene involving crucifixes being thrown away at a junkyard that seems right up your alley. Youtube that shit!

  • Loved it. Very good duo!

    But, I’ve gotta stand up for yoga. I don’t go to yoga because I’m super uptight with issues. I go because A: I work at home and it gets me out of the house…
    and B: To stretch it out. Helps my back and my flexibility! That is all…

  • Great episode. I’m a huge fan of Duncan Trussell…and for the longest time, only listened to his podcast. But after Pete appeared on it several times, I decided to give his show a try…and now I’ve finally found another amazing podcast. Pete and Duncan are 2 of my favorite humans ever.

    So…did anyone else notice a wee bit(just a wee bit) of flirtation going on between these two? They both seem to be similar people, have similar mind-sets, and similar relationship history. Idk…I just kinda think they were a bit into each other. Maybe I’m reading into things…but they seemed to be on the same level. I might be wrong, but I hope not……Jen is super cool, funny, and really intelligent. Hell, I have a crush on her. So, I can’t help but hope her and Pete hit it off and end up being lovers….. ;)

    Anyway, back to the episode. I’m only halfway through, and enjoying it very much. So glad I found this podcast. Pete is a gem of a human being. He’s such a genuine and fully open person. That’s also why I like Duncan Trussell so much.

    Actually….if anyone is reading this(doubtful) and knows of other podcasts that are hosted by people similarly cool as Duncan and Pete…can you let me know? I’m trying to find podcasts worth listening to…as I find it much more entertaining and informative than teevee. I’ve listened to MANY podcasts…but the only ones that have me truly addicted are Pete’s and Duncan’s.

    Speaking of Pete and Dunkster(seems like something Pete would say, don’t it?) he mentioned that Duncan will be the next guest. SO SO fucking happy to hear that. It’s been too long. Duncan and Pete have perfect chemistry…and I can’t wait to tickle my ear holes with their mouth noises. ^___^
