I didn't get to see it live, but I noticed on the Twitter updates the amount jumped very quickly from ~$50,000 to ~$100,000. Did they have somebody offer to match the total again like last year or was there just a very large donation at one point?

They had someone who agreed to match the total.

I let you know me, see me. I gave you a rare gift, but you didn't want it.

And it wasn't announced until they hit $55k to keep the momentum going.

And what was the thing in the envelope? I ran out of steam at Dave Holmes and missed the end.

There was apparently a Yakov Smirnov poster in the lobby and he thought everyone would make a joke about it. None of the guests came in through the lobby, though.

I liked this week's show a lot. Jimmy's rant was great, and Seth Morris was a really good guest. Never Not Funny was definitely the last place I ever expected to hear a discussion on bitcoins.

Also, did anyone else get a survey from NNF this week? It asked how long I've been subscribed and whether I would stay subscribed if the show was free every week with video plus an extra show per week for subscribers. That could be really good for the show, it's hard to recommend it to people knowing they'll have to shell out $25 to listen. Not that that's a lot of money to spend, but it's hard to get people interested in any podcasts in the first place.

Tingly.

I got that survey as well, and I guess I feel a little odd, as I've never gotten into the video side of things (I don't stream videos on my computer, only via a Roku or similar device).

Jimmy & Co will probably still get my $25 a season, though.

Yeah I don't really care about the video but an extra show a week would be great.

I'll be subscribing no matter what, but man if they'd bump the video up to HD, that's be even better.

As per usual, I've purchased this latest season after at least 20~ episodes have been upload, as I prefer to listen to them in a glorious Jimmy Pardo binge.

I'm already loving this season. I do hope the gambling fades out, however. It's just boring.

It does.

Also, anyone know what Jimmy was talking about with regards to a phone call about "the biggest business decision of [his and Matt's] lives"?

I think it probably has to do with the survey that went out - probably going back to a free feed and a secondary premium show?














The secondary premium show will be nothing but phone calls and betting.

Just listened to the Ben Schwartz episode....one of my favorite guests by far. He understand the exact spirit of the podcast interesting, a really funny guy.

I've been wondering what my perfect NNF podcast season would entail. Probably:

1. Ben Schwartz
2. Adam Scott
3. Danielle
4. Mike Schmidt
5. Mike Siegel
6. Paul Gilmartin
7. Paul Auckerman
8. PFT
9. Jon Hamm
10. Al Madrigal (loved his two appearances)
12. Rachel Quaintance (but she needs to stop talking about Willow or whatever the gently caress her daughter's name is)
13. Todd Glass
14. Phil from modern family (I forgot his name!)
15....and I would kill to have Amy Poehler do a full podcast.
16. Oh, and of course Conan.

gently caress I was expecting the 2 shows a week since they sent that survey a month or two back, but joining Earwolf came out of left field. Holy. poo poo. Amazing. I'll still be giving them the money but I really hope it exposes more people to NNF.

Podcast history y'all.

Just bought a year sub for $69

Jumping on the wagon to say this is awesome news, and I'm subscribing to the yearly player's club to show support (and because I can this month...)

I really, really hope this works out well for them. It is kind of a big risk.

Oh I thought the Player's Club audio feed would still have all of the episodes. Have they said what day the 2nd weekly ep will drop?

It wouldn't be that difficult for them to drop the free episode into the Players Club feed would it? Not a big deal, just kind of annoying to have two separate feeds.

Monday, I don't remember if it's specifically Sunday night or Monday night. They were soliciting Stupid Questions on Twitter today so they were clearly recording it.
