    Slowly working my way through these podcasts and loving the wisdom that many of your great guests are dropping into our brains. Thanks also for keeping me company during long car rides and the like. Hope this comment continues to tip the scales in favor of an overall internet affectation of gratitude and endearment towards what you’re doing.

    Meant to leave that on #290, oops.. listened to them both yesterday.

  3. RK says:

    Late comment, but I just had a chance to listen to this ep and I need to post this so I don’t keep thinking about it.

    I promise, all the people complaining about the joke are fully aware that it’s wordplay. Keep it or drop it, but please stop talking like feminists are too thick to recognize a pun when we hear one.

    I just realized that the chorus to the Montell Jordan hit “This Is How We Do It” has the same number of syllables as “Pussy Talkin’ Jonah”.

    Please, denizens of the interwebz. Make this song a reality.

  5. Doug says:

    The one-two punch of PTJ’s “Nah man, she lives with me,” and Matt’s, “It’s called the Indoor Kids,” within less than five minutes of each other nearly made me crash my car.

    I want to get an “I’m a Jonah Raypist” T-shirt a dr.pepper.

  7. Leah says:

    Couple things:
    I nearly screamed when you said Mel Brooks was going to be on the podcast because holy shit that’s incredible.

    The zombie love story movie “Warm Bodies” is actually really interesting. The book was kind of awesome so I have my fingers crossed that they don’t twilight-up the movie. Also Rob Cordry is in it, so there’s that.

    And just one last gleeful cheer for Mandroid. It was great watching it on TV. I had forgotten a few of the bits from when I saw the taping so it was nice to hear it again. Any chance we can get Jonah’s snarky reading of the taping rules on video? Because that may have been the most accidentally effective warm up ever.

    I love you hostful podcast.

    Michelle – “Just couldn’t stop being distracted by the fact that
    i could see that you were ‘dressing to the left.'”

    Me – “Do I still have ‘Mandroid’ on the DVR…? I’ve this sudden urge to watch it again…”
