Congrats on 50, guys!

When Graham said one of the Golden Girls was named Raiden, I almost spit out my milk and cookies!

dave, is it really necessary to explain everything that is non-american to us americans? i expect some differences between canada and america so i'm not going to automatically assume that your pizza hut already serves pasta. and i was never really confused as to what 'trout lake' was. i mean, 'dog park' was already mentioned. i say just do your podcast as usual and don't worry about justifying every canadianism. i wouldn't expect it from any other podcast that was done in another country. otherwise, good job!

What is Canada?

Maren said...

Congratulations on 50, fellas - really fun episode!

They let you have Top Chef in Canada?

Happy 39th

Ivan had another great show. He is definitely worthy of the repeat guest honor.

I also like that Abbey's Aunt called you David. It is a very Aunt thing to do.

Man, ol' anonymous there is pissed. Sure it is pretty easy to draw a conclusion without an explanation but I enjoy finding out the subtle differences between The Melting Pot and The Mosaic. Shouldn't some sort of Offical American Listener be in charge of a duty like that? Moreover, there are always some jokes thrown in during the explanations so whats the harm.

What is the deal with all of this negative comment shit? It is a comedy podcast lighten the fuck up bumpers.

For the record, I don't consider Anonymous' comment to be negative. More like constructive criticism. We welcome 99.9% of the input we've received.

• I enjoy all the podcasts I subscribe to, but you guys have been running circles around my other favorites lately.

• There's an old Sound of Young America episode which features interviews with both Shelley Berman and The late Mr. Wizard, you can find it in iTunes under TSoYA Classics, "Old Men"

• When the subject of "it takes a lot of balls" came up, I thought to myself "at least 4" and then Graham said the exact same thing and it made my day.

Great episode, folks!

If anyone wants to hear more from Ivan, he's going to be on episode 12 of Audio Video Radio, which is this Sunday from 11am - 1pm. You can even call-in and talk to us live, if you want.

You can listen and/or download via www.audiovideoradio.com

It was great hearing Ivan again. He was one of my favorites among the early episodes. I would love to see some of the other past guests back on, Jon Buler (sp?), Phil Hanley and Conor Holler in particular.

I wish to vote for Tim Armstrong for guitarist and Rob Halford for lead singer.

And as a nomination for the multi-instrumentalist I want to toss the name Vic Ruggiero of the Slackers, as well as guest spots on Rancid, SKAdalous All-Stars and the Transplants. He plays the organ and even more importantly the Theremin.

Oh what hijinx. Please don't stop podcasting yourselves. But maybe when things get up around the 3 hundo mark you can do a podcast all in ye olde english. Too bad Dave's DeNiro doesn't translate into sound only :( 50 is the new 30, still feels fresh. Thx for incl my call. You give me something to look fwd to each Monday after work.

Happy 50th and congrats on managing to be funny for 50 episodes. That can't be easy.

The best episode of Mr. Wizard was when he was hungover and he asked the kids inside and taught them how to make black coffee.

Happy 50th gents.

Regarding your Band of Blokes and the suggestion to get inject a little 'ethnicity' into the band, how would Questlove from the Roots work? He's the opposite of bald but he's multi-instrumental. He's got serious cool factor, (probably) smokes a bunch of weed, and wouldn't look for a bar fight, but he'd hold his own if someone else started it.

Or else Ol' Dirty Bastard. And don't give me that "he's dead" excuse. Everyone knows he's still alive.

Chantale said...

I think you guys might enjoy this. The build-up to The Line is quite dramatic and suspenseful. At the edge of my seat.

Rick Allen from Def Leppard for drummer? He only has one arm! Though, wikipedia says he's a vegetarian now, so that'll probably exclude him.

Bob said...

You guys should start a league of fictional blokes and blokesses. You have already allowed ninja turtles into stunt casting. Shredder is pretty blokey.

HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN!!!
Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.
