    In Part 2 of Ernest Analogues, our parade of Ernest's spiritual relatives careens through the 1990s, and crashes into the modern day in an explosion of Mr. Beans, Urkels, Madeas, and many more Worrell correlates.

Being an Ernest fan growing up during the 80’s and 90’s, I knew there was something special about the movies, the tv show, and the advertising of Ernest P. Worrell. I loved them all. But it’s not until I listened to this podcast that I truly appreciated the genius of Jim Varney, and realized how lucky we all are to have an archive of his entertainment legacy.
I would love for Erin and David to go back and rewatch all the movies, then analyze all the things that they may have missed. I would listen to that!
Thanks for making one of all time favorite podcasts.

Please listen to this show!!!!

If Ernest meant anything to you as a child or adult, do yourself a favor and listen to this show. If you think that a podcast about Ernest P. Whirl can have depth and really make you think, you are wrong. Just listen to it.

Always a fun time!

As an Ernest fan of 20-something years, this is by far my most listened to podcast. Erin and David are extremely entertaining hosts and do a deep dive into all things Ernest.

I'm not sure what kind of numbers they are pulling but I listen to one of their episodes almost every day. I can't get enough, knowhutimean?
