Did Wurster seem a little drunk or something during his call, to anyone else?

I hope not, he's been sober for a while :-(

He did seem a little loose. A lot of their calls are pretty tightly scripted, maybe this one was more off-the-cuff.

Oh didn't know that about him. Yeah, may have just been losing the thread and cracking up a little, then.

kind of upset that they wasted 1 of the 4 nodudevember shows with a flop of a show like this. Last week had some of the best calls of the year, and now we only got 2 left until we return to the wasteland of dude calls again

Anyone starting to feel like the show just kinda sucks now and tom is just straight up miserable? I have almost no motivation to listen at this point.

It must be me! Catober and what came before it burnt me out. But that's cool, hopefully I can find my way back in.

I know Tom puts his peeves into perspective when he's challenged on them by a guest, but it must require some serious disassociation to nod along to Nellie McKay's uke take on

I felt that way about the show around a year or so ago (maybe a bit longer)...I feel like it had a pretty weak period but it's bounced back.

Tom and Julie on Manson's failure as a musician is so good. "He also never played shows."

There was so much funny stuff in the Julie Klausner episode:

- Jim Morrison as proto-Avalanche Bob
- The whole discussion around the Jim Carrey/Andy Kaufman documentary
- "Jacketless and Softened" for the Ramones "End of Century" Album Cover
- Wurster to Tom after Tom’s Marty Funkhouser impression - “What a gift you are to all of us. You’re like the Howard Stern for the Sriracha Pringles generation”

:lol:

Is the stream on? I can never tell if he's running behind or if the crummy website isn't working.

edit: this worked

Tom has been on Scott Rogowsky's talk show a few times. Scott has dropped Best Show references in the past but tonight was crazy.
