  1. thanks to nerdist to posting all of Harris’ episodes. Listening to them all again… he will be missed.

  2. Tillburg says:

    Pete for god’s sakes get James onto the show so I can hear 2 hours of him impersonating you. I was crying when he did that.

  3. brian says:

    Check out the most current advertisement music!!

  4. bryn says:

    Love Novak. Really hope you get to do a whole episode with her.

  5. Charles says:

    I would make on plea. If you remember please do not scream into the mic, it is quite painful. Aside from that I would just like to say I love the show and you are constantly making me explain to others around me why I am laughing.

  6. Alec says:

    No love for ‘proscribed’?

  7. Smith says:

    If you like Chris Thayer here, you need to try to catch Pete’s current tour, since Chris is opening. Saw ’em last night in St. Louis and they both KILLED. I agree that they make a great pair as well.

  8. Josh says:

    I love sleepy sniper! My go-to sleep-persona has always been a medeival assassin who’s travelled across frozen wastes and finally found a warm cave in a rock outcropping.
    I wonder what this says about people.

  9. three toes of fury says:

    Lisa: im with you….”Glaser Accuracy” rocked… was a joke with Laser Accuracy….sharp shooting in a corn field….

    Pete: dont know if you read talkbacks, but if so, THANK YOU. Your podcast consistently brightens my day and never fails to bring-the-funny.

    Peace .n. Gamefly

    That is all

    Chris Thayer, permanent co-host.

  14. Mark says:

    Adomian’s impression of Todd Glass has reached weapons-grade level. Holy shit.

  15. Melissa says:

    PERFECTION! Can’t wait to check out Harris Wittels book, and look forward to the live YMIW in SF!

  16. Kevin says:

    Oh my God, James’ impression of Todd Glass was sooo right on the money, I nearly fell over. I mean, tears. Perfect.

  17. Kevin says:

    You need to have Chris Thayer back on the show! He’s hilarious!

  18. robopanda says:

    It’s spelled “Pristiq”, and it’s the active isomer of Effexor, which is available as a generic. Typical patent circumventing shenanigans.

    … but that song is MY JAM, son!
