Funny, enlightening, intriguing and you learn something new every episode. Pete is infectiously genuine.
Getting really tired of Petes fake sounding laugh at times. Sometimes it seems like he tries way too hard. I like him most of the time but not lately. Especially how he constantly walks on egg shells trying not to offend people. You're a comedian!!! This is a comedy show!!! You can laugh at people and each other without having hate in hour heart. Our differences are very funny and laughing at it brings us together.
I heart Pete and all his guests. So honest and real and thoughtful and silly. It helps me make it through a bad day and keeps my good days great! â¤ï¸
I love this podcast! After listening to the podcast it makes you feel full, it feels real, you feel like you've really heard a complete interview and that's what I love about it.
I've been listening to YMIW for years and I feel like Ol' Petey Pants is a dear friend. Besides being very funny his show has documented his spiritual enlightenment over the years. This isn't a show about religion but Petes deep curiosity and constant quest for truth has him asking poignant and thought provoking questions to all of his guests - be them a stand up comedian or a Franciscan monk. He is sincere and open to every guests point of view on the world. The show is at the same time light hearted and enlightening. Pete is a happy golden retriever who wants you to be as happy as he is.
I love Pete's style, his awesome guests and willingness to get into the deep, awkward moments. The podcast has been a support in more ways than one. Medium soup!!!
I love the depth but these interviews go to. Deep down into career, mental state, spiritual state, sexual state all of it!
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.I also don't like his creepy pastor friend.
I started listening to this podcast after hearing Pete interviewed by Kevin Pollak. During that interview there were a few points where a political or social topic would come up and I would cringe waiting for the guest's response to go where manyguests would (divisive, treating opinions as facts, etc.) ... but Pete would provide a thoughtful, insightful response, in some cases leading me to think, "huh, I never thought of it that way."I've found this podcast to be much the same. I enjoy the episodes I listen to. Some are more humorous, others more thoughtful. The only downside for me is that I don't know many of the guests relative to other podcasts I'm subscribed to and with limited time I end up passing on episodes more often than not.
Every time he laughs I can't help but laugh ð
Though it's not necessarily the funniest podcast out there, it offers a wide variety of feels. So happy to support this podcast. :)
It feels like I'm sitting around with some friends having a conversation. The laughs are infectious. One of the very few podcasts where I laugh heartily while by myself.
Pete is love. Pete is life.
Pete Holmes can always make laugh.
Pete is a great combo of a nutcase and great interviewer. Love the show!
Honestly Pete is the worst but you just gotta get through it.
This podcast has been a mix of all of my favorite things since I began listening in 2015. Sex, food, psychology, growth, comedy, and psychedelics. GET INTO IT.
Dude the Stanley Bros interview was the best. Love you Pete, I'm so glad you didn't drown them out with your laughing out loudness
This is #1 comedy podcast. WOW great job. Double snakes
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?
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!
