Crackers. Do a podcast about cracker. Hear me out: You get some saltines, some Ritz, some Triscuits, some Wheat Thins, some Keebler clubs — put your feeling for Keebler aside; this is about the podcast, you must be objective — and go to town.
That’s a lot of crackers for a single episode. Really kind of destroys the PER system. Nevertheless, a fabulous idea.
Check out the May 16th edition of the New Yorker Out Loud podcast. Two guys, eating some chips, talking about snacks. http://www.newyorker.com/online/podcasts/outloud Will you idly stand by and allow this blatant ripoff to go unchallenged? Or will you give David Remnick the beatdown he so rightly deserves?
We’ll probably let this blatant ripoff go unchallenged.
This is probably going to sound weird and a little lame, but my 5 year old son LOVES Mates. Which probably means that I'm a bad parent for letting my 5 year old son listen to Mates. But I was wondering if there was any chance that you might be able to say hi to Chase. I know it's a long shot, and you probably have better things to do, but I know he'd love it.
Hi Chase. Stop listening to this filth. You have TERRIBLE parents.
Hi, I'm a fairly new viewer (I know I'm not a viewer), but in the last week I have listened to almost all your podcasts to date. I am curious as to what your stance is on Hot Dogs as a snack? Can a Hot Dog, a Wiener or a Frankfurter if you will, eaten by itself constitute a snack? Does it depend on how big it is, or the amount of toppings one puts on it, or where you get it from.? I ate a large all beef Frank last night that I bought in a pack of 4 at the grocery store, cooked at home and consumed with ketchup and barbecue sauce on a grilled bun with garlic spread. Did I have a Snack or just a small meal?
You just ate a small meal, my friend. A large small meal.
I usually take all stories told on the 'cast with a bit of skepticism, but there is one anecdote that I really need closure on: Michael, is it true that you mime-fucked John Goodman without his knowledge? I have been going back and forth in my mind about what is reality and fiction since I heard the podcast.
I want to believe, really I do. Also John Goodman, if you follow this tumblr and see this, I want you to know that I have nothing against you and that Roseanne truly was a television show.
Michael answering: that story is absolutely, shamefully true. My apologies to John Goodman. Although he was a great mime lay.
