it is weird to me how any one random person can spend so much time planning casual parties for his friends. i've only hosted like three parties in my life but all of them consisted of getting some food/booze and making a playlist.

100% with him on most people keeping the lights in their house too bright, though.

Yeah, I can't imagine putting that much effort into hosting anything, but more power to him. I really want Scott to go to one and tape it like he did for Analyze Phish.

Doug Benson is in the Earwolf studio to talk U2 to me, and you too.

Jimmy Pardo's co host thought that the part of the chicken wing that looks similar to the "drumstick" was actually just drumsticks from smaller chickens.


This is crazy.

HOLY [expletive].

http://earwolf.com/episode/hollywood-bowl/

Long story short: Scott Aukerman, his wife, Paul F. Tompkins and others subject themselves to a Phish concert at the behest of Harris Wittels. Ultimately this turns out to be when Wittels bottomed out in terms of his drug use and ended up in rehab. This is...bonkers.

SO DISAPPOINTING.

Though I'm willing to concede that maybe that was the only option given that they were trapped in a white trash limo.

It played so much into his persona that I guess I just sort of assumed he could handle it. That's pretty ridiculous that he basically just up and left a P&R writing session to go to this stupid concert. I wonder who he's talking about when he talks about "his boss" on the show.

it's very unlikely that it's really him, but it is a really weird coincidence that michael schur used to tweet "get back to work" at harris all the time.

also, this whole thing is just remarkably painful. i'm really surprised they released it like this, especially with the way it seems that it was a spur of the moment decision to even talk about his rehab stuff.

I figured Schur had basically moved over to Brooklyn 99 and that Wittels had essentially become the head writer of P&R by default.

I'm bummed that this is the last episode because it sounds like they have a ton of audio from that night, and I wanted PFT to show up to talk about it. And Coward Kremer.

i read an interview or something somewhere that was really insistent that schur really still worked on both shows, but that is probably just something people say.

i am not a howard kremer fan, so the coward kremer thing is great. it sounds like it may legitimately upset him when i call him that to his face if we ever cross paths.

it's funky!

yeah, the whole rehab thing really put a damper on it. would have loved a 3 hour episode with adam scott and pft in studio. seems like scott and harris were both kind of bummed out by the whole thing.

Unexpected...Analyze Phish LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVES!!!

http://earwolf.com/episode/fuego/

Marvel at Scott and Harris arguing over who is chillest of them all.

Thrill at the idea of a one-sided Cheeto.

Shiver at the thought of 12-year-old Harris getting bojangles with his boxers on.

if you like matt besser, oh man do i have the podcast episode for you.

i don't normally listen to who charted (kulap is cool but i am not into howard kremer at all), but every now and then i'll go through and download a couple that have cool guests. i saw that besser was on at the end of may and downloaded. it turns out that kremer was out of town or something and the podcast had a guest host for like a month. the guest host is armen weitzman. i'd never heard of him, but he's apparently somewhat successful. he's also the biggest [expletive] mope in the history of the world and matt besser hates him. besser just yells at him for being bad at podcasts and comedy and life in general the entire time. it's one of the best things i've heard in a while.

Matt Besser is hilarious but seems like a genuinely awful person to be around.
