This interrogation is amazing!
Open Your Eyes
We are so blessed to have i4h in our lives. This is one of the most consistently funny podcasts out there. But that's not all. Besser's musical guests are excellent and he is an expert at engaging all of his guests in fascinating conversations.
Mixed Bag these days
When i4h episodes are spun organically, especially with musical guest the show can go to some unexpected and hilarious places. But when there’s a contrivance and Matty B gets an idea to setup a whole show of flat earthers or god forbid he brings his own guitar into studio, I cringe and hope this isn’t anybody’s first improv podcast rodeo. Doesn’t doing a setup go against everything UCB teaches? No, I won’t go on Case Closed. But they’re getting further away from Close every time they huddle outside studio and try to be clever I sure wish they’d stop.
