  • another unbearable liberal smartguy who’s chorlting away as he judges and dismantles the obviously stupid religious people. Start renaming the show ‘You Made me Discard Traditional Christianity for Quasi-Eastern American left-leaning faux-intellectual chortlers”

  • Pete you were wrong about Jesus being the first to say, ‘Love your enemy.’ It was the Buddha 500 years before:

    “Even if bandits were to savagely sever you, limb by limb, with a double-handled saw, even then…live projecting thoughts of universal love to those very persons, making them, as well as the whole world, the object of our thoughts of universal love — thoughts that have grown great, exalted and measureless.”

  • Hey Pete! Great episode! I sincerely love your laugh, and I’d much rather you be free with your merriment than try to bottle it up. 
    You are the great one,m nab .’ Keep doing what is toy flie to ti.

  • First Cosmos, and now this. Giordano Bruno was not a scientist. He was a mystic who believed the Sun was God. Quit perpetuating this myth. Bruno has no real connection to scientific thought. 

  • Wonder if a laughing muffler could be placed on Pete Holmes microphone. He’s a good interviewer but a bit distracting hearing chuckles every 15 seconds. Only wish I could find so many things as funny as this fella.

  • The sketch Pete references to in the Gentry episode is from Mitchell and Webb look. Have David Mitchell on YMIW. British Comedian and he is fantastic. Not a usual guest but i think would be great. Love the Pod Pete! Keep it crispy. 

  • The Dave Hill episode was great but it’s irritating how you go “people will yell at us if we say the brain thing” as though it’s something that’s up for debate or whatever. I know there’s this dumb new Scarlett Johannson movie STILL parroting the silly idea that we only use ten percent of our brains, but it just isn’t true. Of COURSE it’s not true. Think about it for five seconds, it’s crazy. It was never based on anything. Google it. Five seconds.
    Facts exist, Pete. God dammit. I don’t understand why that doesn’t matter to you. Did you see that article the other day about how scientific studies have shown that too many antioxidants in your diet can actually make cancer WORSE?

    Why does it seem likely that your nutrition expert buddy is not going to assimilate this new information? You’ll never run out of cool true stuff, why this need to supplement it with garbage?

  • After waiting all week for you to make it weird in my ears again I felt cheated before I’d even listened that this was only an hour and nine minutes. An hour and nine minutes later I feel soooo satisfied.Another perfect podcast my my mindspace. The blinking light of opportunity puts into a sentence a thought process that took me over 5 minutes of inner monologue to achieve just last night
