  1. Angelo D says:

    Nice article Emily. It echoed many similar feelings I had about the show as well. Excellent podcast as well.

  2. Emily the next line is: Could you settle to shoot me? Or have you picked your target yet.
    Hey Sandy!
    Don’t you talk back, Hey Sandy (guitar part)

  3. Mark says:

    Danny’s awesome! Loved this episode. Plus he sounds exactly like Jimmy, which is funny after coming out of all this time playing GTA

  4. Marta says:

    The Crash Bandicoot fruit was called Wumpa Fruit. OBVIOUSLY A REAL FOOD.

  5. Sol O. says:

    Hey, great episode guys! And great guest – I didn’t have access to Nickelodeon growing up in a small-market Canadian town so I missed out on Pete & Pete, but loved (to hate) Danny’s character in GTA 5 and I’ll definitely be checking out his podcast – he’s a fun guy to listen to.

  6. Nichole says:

    I def had JNCO’s and a chain wallet.

    I always remember the “inspector no. 5” (or was it 7?) episode of Pete & Pete haha

    All the Golden Axe games were awesome – my character of choice was Tyris Flare, I also remember playing Streets of Rage 2 and I was always Skates (skate?)

  7. Daniel says:

    I’ll have to check out The Adventures of Pete and Pete.

    I’ve been listening to The Indoor Kids since pocast #1, and at this point I have to say I enjoy listening to them when they veer onto other topics (feminism, online rage, blowjobs, etc.) more than when they talk about games.

    Speaking about blowjobs, they really need to do a crossover with Sex Nerd Sandra. Their appearances on The Morning After podcast were great. It’s hard to believe that on Emily’s first podcast as co-host with Kumail, she shushed him when he tried to make BJ jokes. How things have changed!

    I enjoyed their appearances on The Morning After Podcast, and after

  8. s1yfox says:

    Wow that episode was a ton of fun! smiled pretty much the whole episode. Danny’s hilarious!

  9. Alec says:

    A show being held off digital media is the worst*. Only the first six episodes of Made in Canada ever made it to DVD.

    *not literally the worst

  10. Jon says:

    Ha, I noticed the Doug Benson thing too! Never made the connection during my GTA V play through, but the toned down, normal Tamberelli sounds eerily similar to Doug.

  11. Brian says:

    There were a few times I had to remind myself that Doug Benson wasn’t the guest of this episode. They sound so similar.

    Danny should have Doug on his podcast. The listener would be so confused.

  12. Wildride says:

    Movie pitch: The Bill Murray Clause. It’s like the Santa Clause, where you accidentally kill Bill Murray and are magically compelled to take his place. OK, more of a skit, than a movie, but still …

  13. Emily says:

    Ha rhzunam! Question: does ANYONE know what the next line is? “Could you sail the shembig?” is what I always sang.

  14. rhzunam says:

    Hey smilin strange, you´re looking hapily deranged.

  15. Or, if you’re too young to have watched Pete & Pete, you may remember him from his stint as a cast member on All That! 😀
