Pete has been through it in the comedy industry - success has not been easy. As an artist, listening to his positive view on those ups and downs of the industry and life in general, is inspiring. I just love listening to the connection and laughs he shares with all of his guests. You have got to get into it!
I keep trying to listen to the podcast, I was a very big fan, but recently he has become hard to understand with Judd Apatow's balls in his mouth.
Even if you're not a fan of Pete Holmes' comedy, he is a great conversationalist. He respects his guests and is very generous in offering support for whatever topics they discuss. Personally, I like Holmes a lot and always end up laughing and learning more about some fascinating people.
Great show- really in depth and funny.
Listened for years, finally rating the show! Sorry it took so long, love you Pete and good luck with everything!
First podcast that I've listened to every episode of and wish there were more! Pete is a great host and I love his sense of humor as well as his willingness to explore different philosophies and ideas through his guests. Every episode leaves you with something memorable. I found that some of my favorite episodes were with guests I had never heard of (which doesn't matter obviously) I just highly recommend listening to all of them! And I do like that they run a little "long" :)
Pete rides the line between therapeutic and humor, getting listeners to process their own sadness, mortality, joy and vulnerability all while infusing the episodes with hilarious conversations. Guests are always great, Pete knows how to get authenticity from each one.
Don't take this the wrong way, but how the F*ck can you have a conversation with someone for 3 hours and 8 minutes? There is nothing, short of a marathon, I'd do for that long without taking a break. I would take a nap in the middle of a three-hour, eight-minute fest of making love. Really.
This podcast helps get me through the work week. Bravo, Pete, bravo.
I don't know what that means but I like this podcast a real lot
"ME! ME! ME! ME!" -Pete
I love this podcast. I didn't know I wanted a podcast like this until I found it. I pick and choose what episodes to listen to depending on the guest. The length and frequency of the episodes would be too much of a commitment for me to listen to every episode. But I love Pete as a host. For example: in his episodes with Bo Burnham, Pete encourages really interesting conversations and asks great questions. I wouldn't consider it a philosophy podcast but it's a podcast that encourages thinking and self-analyzing. I love it. Pete feels like an old weird friend.The podcast usually stays on the lighter comedic side and sometimes has a lot of self-referential LA show business stuff but that's usually okay by me. Most of his guests are comedians, I think, but Pete's not afraid to ask serious questions. He says a lot of stuff and he often seems to embarrass himself or contradict himself but he explained in at least one episode that a good way to find out what what you think and how firmly you believe it is to say it aloud in a safe environment and see how you feel about it and how people react. I found that to be an interesting idea.
That is all.
I didn't originally like this man, but he grew on me, and is an admirable person
Keep on keepin on PHo :) all the best to you and Sweet Lady Val! Peace
Pete Holmes is a beautiful, beautiful man and I love his podcast.
I have been listening for years and embarrassed to say that I have never reviewed it. I've probably been listening since 2012. This is one of the few podcasts I will listen to all the episodes of, even if I'm not familiar with the guest, because I know it will be an interesting conversation. It could be goofy, it could be philosophical, it could be both. One thing is consistent: Pete will make it weird in the best way possible. Pete is such a joyful personality that you can't help but be in a good mood listening to this podcast. Dare I say he's the anti-Maron?
I was slow to warm up to this podcast. I like that Pete is a soul searcher. On podcasts where Pete thinks similarly to his guests he becomes squirrelly and doesn't feel the need to explain his philosophies or defend his values. Those episodes are more difficult for me to get through. I like when he has guests who are very different than he is, when he feels like his truths are threatened a bit. That's when Pete shines and the beautiful parts of him come out, including patience, kindness and humility.Although Pete does love Pete. Too much. The result of way too much positive reinforcement as a youth. I like him, just way way less than he likes him.
Thank you for creating such a great form and style of conversation! This podcast has been amazing and I wish I would have found it sooner. The one benefit of finding it late is I have so many to catch up on. Anyone who likes comedy should listen to this podcast. Anyone who enjoys weird conversations that can become sentimental and loving should listen to this podcast. Anyone who has a heart should listen to this podcast! Pete, thank you for making it weird.
My new go to Podcast very well conducted props to Pete he's great at directing the conversation.
Really great Podcast PETAHHH! Thanks for all the laughs and new thoughts!Much love,Nate
How's your joy quota doin'? Listen to Pete and laugh, cry, play, and ponder the universe! Best podcast ever! I've listened to every episode and it's changed my life! Get into it!!
Pete is my favorite comedian and getting to hear long freeform conversations with him involved has honestly changed my view on a lot of things in life. Keep it Crispy!
Why would you have this racist on your show?
PETE MAKES IT WEIRD with Stupid Banter
I just want to give Pete 5 stars
Pete makes me laugh. First podcast I listen to and after hearing Pete and his guest laugh, I was hooked.
I've listened to a ton of Pete's podcasts and they are always engaging and entertaining. Sometime Pete gets too excited though and is on interuupting overdrive. The Andy Richter episode could've been so great but Pete's constant build ons by the end were becoming too distracting. I'll keep listening but I hope Pete can find the joy inthe guest's story vs trying to constantly compare them to himself.
I've listened to every episode. It feels a little bit like taping someone's phone, it's 400 hours of them talking to their mom about her best friend's sister-in-law's breast enhancement surgery or the dog's worm medicine, 200 hours of pocket dials and 100 hours of pure, unadulterated gold.Over all, I think it was worth it. It's difficult to explain to my friends and family that there's a random guy who I know more about than any of them. If anyone else is in my shoes, I'd warmly accept camaraderie. Congrats Pete on all the goodness in front of you!
If your podcast begins with 5 minutes of self-promotion and waffle about subscription services I'm going to listen to a different podcast.
I have listened to You Made It Weird for quite a while. I absolutely Love the interaction between Pete and his guests. Itâs very refreshing to hear a conversation between people who are no t watching their words. This is a real conversation and I really enjoy listening because it feels like real life. I love the openness towards religion or the lack there of. I love the longer episodes and have NEVER turned one off because it too long. Keep it up Brother. Youâre Awesome!
I love this podcast and I listen every week. Pete is not your average host so expect something new. It took a few listens. Start with the episodes with your favorite guests.
Love Pete Holmes! He's thoughtful, kind, funny and seems like a genuinely good guy. The discussions are always a combo of humorous, touching, enlightening and heart-warming. I highly recommend!
I couldn't even make it to the episode because there was almost 7 MINUTES of ads. If I want to listen to a podcast on a commute, I'm not interested in listening to a 7 minute commercial. No thank you. Not the podcast for me.
YMIW is my favorite! Especially Peter Rollins episode 12/14. I don't usually re-listen/re-watch much, but some of these have become comfort food. It's like eavesdropping on the best conversations ever.
This is my absolute favorite podcast!!! Pete Holmes is so great. His guests are fantastic. I was late to the podcast game and this podcast in particular. I have since, over the past few years, gone back and listened to a majority of his shows and absolutely love it! I love the format, I love that he front loads all the ads so it's not clunky with weird breaks. I especially love that it is conversational and not just a straight interview. Pete gets his guests to open up and really engage in the conversation. But, the best part is he is just looking for the best conversation and not a bunch of gossip. As silly as it sounds I get so excited for Wednesday's because a new episode comes on. I have been brought to tears several times just with how touching and wonderful the conversations are. I listen to many other podcasts now, but this one stays as my top and not many have really come close to Pete Holmes!
...host is annoying and not funny.
The podcast has a lot of potential, but Pete's psychoanalysis and narcissism can make it hard to listen to at times.
I enjoy the depth that this show has over others!
I'm dying laughing this is so good now I have to listen to EVERY episode!
This is one of my favorite podcasts. It usually has me laughing out loud at the gym. Pete Holmes is funny and has a great interview style that is entertaining and informative.
I suppose this podcast would be appreciated if you're a flaming liberal. I listened to Pete, Norman Lear and Judd Apatow rave on about how great 8 years of Hillary followed by 8 years of Elizabeth Warren would be and it made me sick to my stomach! And Pete's forced, over the top laughing at the least funny thing a guest says makes it extremely uncomfortable. I gave it 4 episodes and I just can't do it anymore. I'm sticking with Adam Carrola's podcast, it's brilliant!If I could give this a negative star rating, I would.
Pete Holmes is a funny stand up but is an awful host. His forced laughter is embarrassing. This podcast made me sad. How does he get guests? Zero stars. Deuche.
I listened to the Jason Manzoukos podcast and really enjoyed it. I downloaded several more and then realized why I donât listen/ subscribe to "You made it Weird". His laughter is so forced/ obnoxious/ unpleasant/ dreadful/ off-putting/ tiresome/ irritating/ overbearing/ ghastly/ unsavory/ insufferable/ godawful. No reason he needs to do this forced laughter because this would be a very good podcast. Please listen to yourself Pete Holmes and stop with the laughing.
