I downloaded the episodes on my IPAD and I'm walking around the house hugging the IPAD listening to the Podcast. Mum recognised Ton's voice from Ed, she used to come home all the time and find me in front of the TV watching it. She was like: is Ed on Itunes?? I just love caring your voices around. This is great!
I need to know, what happens when the cameras go off (I know they're not cameras)? Do you each say, "See you next week" then turn away from each other and walk away? Do you go out for beers afterward? Do you sit there and continue arguments from the podcast? Do you start planning for the following podcast? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CAMERAS GO OFF??? (I know they're not cameras). BTW, Andy Capp Hot Fries... Do it!
We always argue. It’s what we do. And we go out for beers. And we plan for the next podcast. And we sing like crazy.
*new listener* (Loving) catching up on your podcasts. I'm amidst some episodes during which the storm trooper is recurrently hitting the floor and/or ground. Sometimes you seem confused what he hits, so I want to help, if I can, with this: floor is inside, ground is outside. Think about it. Does this help?
I just to find and follow @mikeandtom on twitter and twitter broke. I mean just broke. No twitter feed no profile. Nothing. I reloaded eight times. And every time I search @mikeandtom it does it again. Is this a deliberate act of destruction for a refusal by twitter to change its logo from a bird to a Snickers bar?
Hi Mike and Tom! My best friend Jessica's birthday is coming up very soon, and MATES is one of the things we share and love so much together (gay). We listen to it when it's just the two of us on road trips. We talk about snacks we'd like to send you (but haven't yet) (lazy). We remind each other of our favorite parts of our favorite ones (Haagen-Dazs, and more recently, Guacamole). Now, here's the question: how can I get her a MATES-related birthday present? Need your help! Thanks, Rebecca
Best thing to do would be to PICK a bunch of snacks, EAT a bunch of snacks, RATE a bunch of snacks. Then make yourselves throw up. Happy birthday.
I'm sure you've been told this a zillion times already but, on the off chance you haven't, Kit Kats are originally from York, England. However, Hersheys make US Kit Kats not Nestle so they may well be unique, but they aren't the original! May I also suggest freezing the occasional Kit Kat on a hot summers day? Something to be enjoyed all over the world, wherever you are.
You are just a goddamned Kit Kat know it all, aren’t you? A GOD DAMNED KIT KAT KNOW IT ALL!!!
Now obviously ratings are set in stone and obviously great thought and deliberation goes in to them, but I recently went back and reviewed Cold Pizza again, and I am still baffled at the 1 submitted by Mr. Cavanagh. I was wondering if any changes of heart occurred? Any regrets?
When all the snacks are sampled, we will go back and revisit old snacks. Our calculations tell us that should happen in August of 2140.
I'm getting caught up on my MATES, and I just got to the guacamole episode. Tom, I too developed an avocado allergy after visiting New Zealand! It's official, New Zealand is out to get the avocado industry. We must put a stop to this! Also, beware of bananas and latex, the allergies are connected, and when you are allergic to one you are often allergic to the others. Harsh.... I know....
It’s not a coincidence that “Lord of the Rings” was also shot in New Zealand. Clearly the Kiwis have magic powers and short people.
We had just started getting addicted to Pirate's Booty when we first started listening/viewing - that's how we discovered you. Your episode on PB inspired us to order all of the flavors. Veggie - godawful - smells like the bottom of an aquarium. Chocolate - awful - smells like burnt hair, looks like poo. BBQ - bad - has distinct BBQ flavor, but looks disgusting. Sour Cream & Onion - decent - tangy twist alternative to Aged Cheddar, but not worth it. We should've listened to you.
There is no “I told you so” in the snack game. But yeah. We told you so.
This is a question for Ian(Olaf). On one of the episodes, there was a cover of Rage Against the Machine's "Killing In the Name Of". Who was it? Please answer soon, my life is being threatened by a curious listener. Thanks.
hey guys, great show, always a blast to listen to you... quick question, on ep.30 (starburst) you played a song about midway through by a girl, something about money doesn't weigh a lot or something like that. i can not track this thing down, please give me some info on it or her. thanks!
It’s called “Dance Area” by Dawn Landes (dawnlandes.com). Tell her you found the song on MATES. She’s a friend of the show. More song credits here: http://matescast.tumblr.com/credits -Ian
How long does MATES plan on running with this 'Will they or won't they?' plot line? Obviously the two of you have great sexual chemistry, but so many shows have been ruined by dragging on this sort of thing. I just hope that if you get together, you stay together, as the viewers have a lot invested in your potential relationship.
You are exactly right, and we want you to know that we take you seriously, Aaron Sorkin.
I find it a bit remiss that you two haven't dedicated an episode to the memory of the late Slim-Jim spokesman Randy Savage. I realize you're still bitter about the ticker-tape parade, but I would think such professionals as yourselves(especially those of you who are skilled enough to be touted as Yogi-laureates) would take a moment to recognize the memory of such a trailblazer.
First off, you two fine gentleman are making history in the snack game. Years from now, historians will look back and see MATES as the even that started the snacking revolution that is upon. Now onto the question of the hour. Ever since the inception of MATES, I've been curious as to when exactly does a snack become a meal? Does finishing an entire bag of Lays still constitute a snack?
