Tags Moshe Kasher, pete holmes, you made it weird Comments Devan says: May 9, 2014 at 5:07 pm I’m surprised that nobody on here brought up that the “Jewish ambulances” thing is REAL. They’re called Hatzalah and they’re based out of Brooklyn (although they do have a few other independent chapters around the US and internationally), and they were even among the first responders on the scene during 9/11. The only real “conspiracy theory” part of it is that some people believe that it’s some secret “Jews only” ambulance service, when really it’s just a volunteer organization that is better equipped for Orthodox/Hasadic citizens (which I guess could be very helpful if you need medical attention but are worried about travelling on the Sabbath). Kristin says: April 4, 2014 at 8:17 am I love this show in general but holy cow I laughed so hard so many times at this episode. Thank you! Gordon Adam says: March 24, 2014 at 11:57 pm “I’ll have the medium soup” – God Andre says: March 17, 2014 at 10:17 am Racist Stephen Hawking: http://youtu.be/kNA1sLaYlUQ This had me literally doubled over. Olivia says: March 13, 2014 at 6:19 pm This is unbelievably hilarious. Brian Raney says: March 13, 2014 at 3:43 pm You guys need to record the *Medium Soup* song so I can buy it of iTunes. Guy21 says: March 13, 2014 at 10:57 am Unfreaking-believable!!!!! I pulled ab muscles listening to this podcast. Have not laughed as hard since the first time I smoked pot. Muchos kudos to both you freaks! Mandy says: March 13, 2014 at 9:10 am Just saw Moshe live and he’s one of the best. Thanks for having him back Pete. I could listen to you guys riff all day. Ben says: March 13, 2014 at 7:49 am Hedil-deidle-deidle medium soup…. Miranda says: March 13, 2014 at 6:38 am Hello! I loved this conversation. What a chilling quote from the holocaust survivor that Moshe shared — I have been reflecting on that for days now. I like to have hope in humanity, but what he said — that the worst and most selfish are the most likely to survive because they have no problems hitting others for a bit of bread, and the best die first because they care about others more than themselves. This really saddens my heart. This really makes me think about humans. js says: March 7, 2014 at 6:34 pm I was glad to hear Moshe broach the prison industrial complex. You may want to check out the book The New Jim Crow which further explains exactly what he was talking about. It’s a very disturbing reality that should be discussed more. http://newjimcrow.com/ IR says: March 7, 2014 at 5:36 pm I had to leave the gym because I couldn’t hold in laughter at racist Stephen Hawking. Mark says: March 7, 2014 at 7:54 am Hilarious episode, one of the best in a while (along with Jared Logan’s). nth’ing Janet Varney, she’s the perfect combo of sweet authenticity with enough sharpness to go toe-to-toe with Jimmy Pardo. mholberger says: March 6, 2014 at 10:01 pm im lovin’ it! btw your show is hilarious again this season! i had a dream i was in Belarus and i met you and was like “hey, im a weirdo!” (never been to Belarus). my bedtime ritual is listening to you conversate on this podcast! it has helped me think about effective communication in my own life, very cool. Dan says: March 6, 2014 at 8:28 pm Pete, honestly I love what you do, and you’ll probably never see this and who the hell am I to say it. But I would do far more remote interviews for a while. Your studio ones seemed forced and with your level of Internet saturation I feel like you are doing yourself a disservice by trying to be a common late nite host. I think in the show setting you lose your ability to improvise.You’re in an awkward state where you are replaying old conversations from your podcast on tv. I get that, but you need to find a new voice. A voice for your new medium. For at least a little while I feel like you need to lose the audience so you can Learn to draw someone in without fear. Though what do I know, I’m pretty drunk Jesse says: March 6, 2014 at 6:18 pm Pete, if you read these comments, thank you for creating this podcast (and subsequently TPHS on the tvs). Always provides a laugh, thoughtful discussion, and challenging words to presuppositions. All for free. So good. Thanks!! And now to talk my wife into buying tickets to see Moshe in Charlotte this weekend…. Fingers crossed that Racist Stephen Hawking will make an appearance gibs says: March 6, 2014 at 4:36 pm Great episode. I loved racist Steven Hawking. Pete, I’m not sure it “they keep building the prisons” makes sense to me. If they were building prisons so fast that they were struggling to lock enough people up in them, there wouldn’t be a national epidemic of overcrowding in prisons. Not only are we locking (predominantly poor and minority) people away in record numbers, but prison officials are fighting for their right to cram more and more of them in the same amount of space to save money. Because they forfeited their right to humane conditions when they were caught holding pot. Richard says: March 6, 2014 at 1:13 pm Did no one else laugh hysterically at “Siddhartha and Nancy”? LOL! Jamjo says: March 6, 2014 at 1:13 pm Amazing episode. Racist Stephen Hawking needs a medium soup ASAP! JL says: March 6, 2014 at 12:55 pm Unbelievably awesome episode. I laughed so hard it hurt. joe says: March 6, 2014 at 8:38 am best episode in a long long time. Sam says: March 6, 2014 at 8:32 am Holy. I can’t. Medium soup. Josh says: March 6, 2014 at 5:41 am I’ve had Medium Soup – Native American Remix stuck in my head since yesterday. Protoman says: March 6, 2014 at 2:27 am 10/10 episode, Moshe Kasher is spot-on with the War on Drugs and the private prison industry jay says: March 5, 2014 at 11:18 pm VJJ – Punisher of the year. Moshe and Pete crushed this episode. I’ve now hear Moshe on three podcasts in the last week. David H says: March 5, 2014 at 9:42 pm Definitely one of the best YMIW episodes in a while, and that’s after what I think has been a great run lately. Both hilarious and fascinating. Thanks Pete! Amy says: March 5, 2014 at 9:41 pm FUCK YES MOSHE!! Was hoping he’d return! NERDIST says: March 5, 2014 at 8:18 pm I only use gmail. Al other email servers are inferior. #GMAIL The email of the cool kids. KatieCRyan says: March 5, 2014 at 7:13 pm HECK YES! Moshe’s are some of my favorite episodes. Keeping it crispy once more! vjj says: March 5, 2014 at 6:40 pm forget it. I found it somewhere else. Douche-bags vjj says: March 5, 2014 at 6:34 pm Come on! Nerdist! STOP THROTTLING THE BANDWIDTH ON THIS DOWNLOAD! vjj says: March 5, 2014 at 5:15 pm Nerdist is throttling the download of this Podcast. Why? It’s taking forever. I have 100 Mbps broadband. Matt A. says: March 5, 2014 at 4:43 pm Hey Pete, you should go on The Champs! Oh wait…. jk love you dawg MacPiece says: March 5, 2014 at 1:08 pm Yes to having Janet Varney on as a guest @Dice. I wonder what if Moesh will venture out and perhaps do an Terrence McKenna impression or Alan Watts. Barely Legalistic says: March 5, 2014 at 1:08 pm And… we’re back. Polite smile from Jennette episode replaced by genuine laughter. BasedGod says: March 5, 2014 at 1:08 pm Yes to having Janet Varney on as a guest @Dice. I wonder what if Moesh will venture out and perhaps do an Terrence McKenna impression or Alan Watts. Dice Clay says: March 5, 2014 at 1:04 pm Moeshe killing it! That Stephen Hawking bit was thee best. Also how about having Janet Varney on the podcast? Nathan says: March 5, 2014 at 1:03 pm FANTASTIC EPISODE! Seriously the funniest one in recent history! Medium soup and racist Stephen Hawking forever and ever! Erica says: March 5, 2014 at 12:52 pm This was a funny episode. gigi lollo says: March 5, 2014 at 12:37 pm You guys need to lay down some tracks on the next Enigma album. Great episode, it was like listening in on a boys sleepover. Bryan says: March 5, 2014 at 12:06 pm I’m glad I’m alone right now because I’m sure I look like a lunatic falling over laughing hysterically to Racist Stephen Hawking and Medium soup. Great episode! Shannon says: March 5, 2014 at 9:55 am Best YMIW in a long time! I’m dying right now. MEDIUM SOUP! Three Toes of Fury says: March 5, 2014 at 9:53 am FREAKING HILARIOUS. Great riffin bits!!! Peace .n.
