Very entertaining and thought provoking. The conversations on faith are intriguing. Could do without all the F-Bombs from Pete, though. The profanity is unnecessary.
Awesome podcast. Very sincere, interesting, and funny. Quality and quantity. Pete Holmes asks great questions and even though he interrupts the guest quite a bit, itâs still a fantastic podcast.
Canât believe I just found this podcast. LOVE Pete and his choice of guests and topics â especially the episode with New Yorker Cartoonists Matt Diffee and Alex Gregory. Please donât stop!
Pete is into things Iâm into and his guests are always interesting. Favorite podcast to date.
I love this podcast!! Pete Holmes is one of my favorite comedians and his honesty about life is refreshing. Especially if youâre having a rough day, Peteâs there to lighten the mood!! I have most enjoyed how open Pete is with his guests, so human, so real.
Itâs Pete Holmes, aka John Ritter, talking with some comedians about life. Some times itâs funny and sometimes itâs.. hilarious.
I want to love Pete Holmesâ podcast: the premise, the host and the guests who show up all seem to point to something entertaining for us quirky types. However I find it difficult to follow along as guests are rarely allowed to finish a story. Peteâs stream-of-consciousnesses style of interview is a great concept but, in my opinion, seldom successful. As one question is being answered, Pete interrupts with more ideas, questions or philosophical detours that are less about eliciting anything interesting from the guests as they are about Pete just sharing more about himself. Donât get me wrong, I think heâs great. I just also want to find out what these incredibly funny people have to say.
I think getting married made him a bad comedian.
Awesome episode. Legend. RIP.
Itâs not a bad show, and thereâs some really great guests, but the host needs to learn that while interviewing people, they are the focus. Itâs a conversational format and heâs constantly talking. It doesnât seem like his guests can get a word in. Heâs terrible at interrupting the guest and constantly focusing the conversation on himself. If Iâm listening to a show featuring Ben Gibbard, I wanna hear from Ben, not just the host.
This is the first time I'm hearing Pete Holmes and I really like him. It's funny stuff. The Podcasts always remided me of the old Fanzines and this definitely catches the spirit of long ago era, or maybe because I'm still suffering frm daylight saving shock and the pain of lost time? Excellent show Pete.
I love the vulnerability and human-ness of this show. BUT PLEASE HAVE A GD JAZZ MUSICIAN ON YOUR SHOW! Are you famous enough to get Esperanza Spalding? Kidding/not kidding; love everything youâre putting into the universe.
Would love to see you and Brendan do a podcast.
Squandered opportunity by host to make these interviews interesting. Worth checking out though because there are many other reviews of higher stars.
This is such an awesome podcast for while you're working (if you can do work while listening to something) or while you're in the car! Pete allows for such an open, comfortable environment where he and his guests can get - wait for it - weird, and profound and deep all while being lighthearted enough to keep things from feeling too heavy. It is so brilliant to hear from comedians, musicians, etc. whom I love so dearly and to hear them get so vulnerable and open. Pete is such a brilliant host - he does talk a lot, but he has a lot of lovely things to say and is so genuine and so passionate. His sincere and honest passion is so beautiful to hear, and it is only heightened by how much love and respect he has for his guests.
I love you Pete but the Podcast is too long.
I enjoy listening to him so much. Comedy + spirituality = gold.
Love the pod.
I've been a fan of this podcast for a number of years but this week I was listening to the Bobby Lee podcast and I wanted to reach through my earbuds and scream at Pete to shut up. He was constantly interrupting and man-splaining to Bobby. It was like Bobby coudnlt get a word in edgewise for a half hour. I understand if a guest is not pulling their weight and you have to jump in, but Bobby was willing to talk and probably would've shared more if he wasn't interrupted so much. On the flip side, both recent Duplass Brothers interviews were great. Note to Pete -- eveything does not have ot be a bit and thanks for all the good laughs
YMIW is awesome because it's almost always feel good even when it's sad or tackeling important issues. This most recent episode with Jackie Kashian was DELIGHTFUL and unseated the one with Tig Notaro for my most favoritiest feel goodest episode ever. Listen to this, watch Crashing, Pete Holmes surrounds himself with quality.edit: I get so excited when i see 2+ hours of conversation with a celebrity i'm a fan of, it's really like having a mom chat, cannot wait to listen to tom lennon
Pete Holmes makes me heart happy!
I have been a huge fan of this podcast for years now and I hope he continues it for more to come. I learn something new every episode and I really enjoy Pete's welcoming and entertaining interview style. He shows such positive regard for his guests and invites them into very thought provoking and often relatable subject matter. It is very cool to have the opportunity to hear about the more personal and genuine sides of well known personalities. I especially love the episodes with Bo Burnham, Mike Birbiglia, Jen Kirkman, Adam Carolla, and Kyle Dunnigan. I REALLY hope that he has Eric Andre on again soon, as well as Kumail! I feel like they only scratched the surface in Eric's episode. GET INTO IT.
Youâre in a constant state of âI have to write this down.â
Iâve liked his comedy for awhile now. I just found his podcast (yes I live in a cave). I had no idea he was such a great interviewer!!
I would have loved to have listened to the entire podcast with Penn Jillette. The man is well-spoken and fascinating. Unfortunately, the host felt the need to interrupt constantly, try to finish Mr. Jillette's sentences (usually incorrectly), disagree with Mr. Jillette, then laugh and say "just kidding", interject his own stories that didn't have anything to do with the point Mr. Jillette was trying to make, and this was all in the first hour, because I couldn't stand it any longer and turned it off. I do enjoy Chris Hardwick's interviews because they make me feel like I'm hanging out with him and his guest enjoying a cocktail and just shooting the breeze. I'll stick with Mr. Hardwick's interviews from now on.
Iâm not sure this guy knows that heâs on the air and that heâs supposed to be talking to an audience...Itâs like heâs on something and isnât aware of where he is. He doesnât talk clearly and doesnât enunciate his words. I have no idea what heâs saying or what heâs talking about. I think random thoughts are just coming out disjointed. Was he a radio shock jock at some point in time? He and his show come across that way. I listened to 10 minutes of an episode to hear his guest and gave up all hope after he interrupted her several times with incoherent drivel. Useless.
Pete can be silly and sublime, often simultaneously. Not all episodes are for me. But some conversations connect me to the Oneness as much as meditation or a sermon. Listening to Pete and Myq Kaplan just now is like a college hang with your stoner philosophy major friends, but if that was Church. At moments I wanted to shout and cry with joy at the beauty of life. At other moments they play around, so they take it all with a light touch. Also, the last time you laughed the hardest is a great conversation starter. Thanks, Pete!
Usually I hate people who laugh too much and seem happy for no apparent reason, but Pete is the exception, comes off very genuine and the laughter becomes infectious. Also very curious when it comes to his guests and steers the conversation into a lot of different areas.
can't believe it's free
I love this podcast and Pete Holmes so so much. I love how open and honest he is and how heâs able to get his guests to open up with him. The âwhy are we here and whatâs this all about?â portion of the podcast is fascinating and comforting because the answers he gets vary so much and it shows that none of us really have the answers. It proves that we are all, celebrities or not, comedians or not, completely full of ð© but weâre full of ð© together ð Keep it Crispy! ð¤Side note: Peteâs stand up specials are hilarious and Crashing on HBO is one of my faves so check those out too people!
Overall great podcast. Been catching up, bouncing around episodes. The Louie Anderson one has been the best so. Encourage everyone to check it out to get some good feels for the day.
Thatâs all I want to say.
Interestingly, I've never been a big fan of Pete's standup, but I absolutely positively love his podcast. He's a lovable teddy bear of a guy who people just open up to, and the depth they get into with religion and death and relationships and careers is unparalleled. Best 2+ hour podcast out there.
Funny, but also with it's serious moments at times. Had no idea Sinbad got into Spiritual things like that, that was one of my favorites. D. Chopra was a wild conversation--I really appreciate both Holmes' and Chopra's being in awe of the universe. Love how the latter portion of the podcast focuses on beliefs about God, The Universe, The Ultimate, etc. Great balance of humor and thought-provoking discussions.
I wasn't a huge fan of Pete's HBO show, but then a friend asked me to listen his podcasts. I found myself really enjoying them, and even going back to the HBO series and really enjoying it more. I guess Pete's comedy is an acquired taste -- I'm glad my palate finally caught up.
I originally only downloaded episodes with people whoâs names I recognized, but I have since gone back and downloaded every episode to listen to from the beginning because Pete is such an interesting person to listen to and I surprisingly find myself relating to him frequently. Good job Pete! Donât stop!
I listen to A LOT of podcasts, but I donât think I ever recommend or reference one as much as I do You Made it Weird. Itâs funny (like, REALLY funny), informative, and makes you think about things in a different way.
Love this show. Pete Holmes is one of the best comedians of our time. A well done show.
i came here to leave a glowing and favorable review but was jarred with a suddenly blackened background and let me say now i am very upset someone should do something about this pete can you hear me fix it.good show, fun show, 6 stars ******
Pete Holmes brings me so much joy every week. His curiosity and love for life help me remember Iâm not on this journey alone. You Made it Weird is my favorite podcast of all time. I hope someday I can meet Pete, because we would be instant best friends.
Pete is by far one of my favorite comedians. Out of all the podcasts I listen to, this one is my absolute favorite. I don't even have to be familiar with the guest to enjoy listening. Pete makes each episode exciting.
This is the best podcast out there. Pete is such a genuine and interesting guy. Even when he repeats stuff (we all do, and after 7 billion episodes he canât have only original thoughts) itâs still very interesting hearing an old thought applied to a new situation. His guests are great! I have found many new comics and musicians from this podcast. I am now an avid Glen Hansard fan and fell in love with Hasan Minhaj. The familiar names are amazing as well because Pete has a unique way of bringing out candid truth from his guests. If you can't get over Pete's happiness then just lube up that fun dial a little.
I like the podcast in general, typically great guests, but a 2.5 house interview with Kate Micucci and âDonât Think Twiceâ only gets barely referenced a few times?
I like it.
This podcast has made me laugh, made me cry and brought me closer to an understanding of my own religious and life issues. Thank you so much and please keep going forever!
Great conversation and laughs
What a joy
So funny and intellectual
