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.
YMIW is awesome because it's almost always feel good even when it's sad or tackleing important issues. This most recent episode with Jackie Kashian was DELIGHTFUL and unseated the one with Tig Notaro for my most favoritiest feel gooest episode ever. Listen to this, watch Crashing, Pete Holmes surrounds himself with quality.
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
Incredibly self satisfied people talking amongst themselves. Inside jokes. And not funny.
Pete Holmes is a talented conversationalist, and his friends and guests range from comedians to musicians to spiritual leaders to scientists and eveywhere in between. He explores not only comedy, but religion, psychology, & more. 4 stars because occasionally he tends to hijack the conversation away from the guests (but not typically, most of these conversations are phenomenal).
always hilarious. and fresh. Guests are great. just a perfect show.
Love the silliness and thought-provoking nature of the podcast. I could deal without over an hour about joke construction and honing your craft for the 98% of us that are not stand up comedians
I absolutely love this podcast!! It's one of my favorite podcasts and I absolutely love Pete's laugh and find myself laughing along with him. I feel like I'm just hanging out with my really funny friends while listening and laugh until I cry most days. I love how deep it gets, and the questions at the end he asks everyone. This podcast has made me see more live comedy. Love it
Hilarious and amazingly deep. Thank you for both!
Pete is a stand up legend so by default of course his podcast is very entertaining, he's a great host who knows how to transition between topics smoothly and keep things hilarious. In the top 3 comedy podcasts out there! Pete Holmes f*cks!!!
Thanks for what you do Pete âð¼
I love this show and the amazing people on the podcast and pete Holmes is lovely. Something that is extremely irritating at times is when the person being interviewed is about to get into a story and pete interjects with a one liner and throws off where the story is going. Just wait until the end to add your side bar comments.
Seriously, this podcast has kept delivering for so long. Now that I've caught up I really look forward to a new episode on Wednesdays. Never stop, Pete.
I generally like the interviews but the lack of women guests is almost disturbing. They are peppered throughout the many episodes but lately have been severely lacking. Is more diversity possible?
Pete, I hope to meet you someday. You seem really down to Earth for a celeb. You're funny, light hearted, never too serious, and I really enjoy the end segment about what faith means to the guest. Your laugh is insane, and I love it.
I listen in to hear from the cool guests that are on the show, but Pete invariably tries to turn every bit of conversation back to himself. (Don't believe me play the Aziz Ansari episode.) Or he's kissing asses so much he is almost impossible to endure. He consistently talks over his guests and talks as if he is an equal to the interviewee. (Just because you name-drop doesn't mean anyone likes you.) Sadly he is just isn't funny enough to listen to and isn't half as intellectually interesting as he thinks he his. Listen for the guest stars, just know it's like listening to a real-life Kenny Bania from Seinfeld, trying to act chummy with A-listers so he can feel like he's one, too. All three stars are for the guests that are chosen for the show.
Pete Holmes and this podcast are insufferable.
I had listened to a little bit of YMIW a while back, but it was my girlfriend's total love for this podcast that made me listen to a bunch of episodes and really get into it. Now I love Pete, too! And my gf and I are no longer dating. So I guess you could say I lost a love and gained a friend (two friends, actually; we still keep in touch). Sorry if I made it weird ;)
Pete, why are your jokes on this show so much funnier than your standup?! I guess I'm only referencing your standup that is on Spotify... But still. Anyways, some people hate your laughing and your humor. That's a shame. Laughter is contagious and I find myself laughing more from how funny you found the joke than the joke itself. Pete is like one of those friends you want to keep around because they laugh at all of your jokes.
I didn't know there was a boy version of me until I met Pete Holmes. So real and so funny.
Holmes just goes on and on with painfully unfunny jokes/bits. Often has interesting guests, but you rarely get to hear from them. I've tried listening to several different episodes, always having a similar experience.
When pete says he's not a theologian, that's funny.
Love this podcast. Funny, introspective, relatable... don't mind at all when they go long! Rock on, Pete!
I love Pete Holmes. He's hilarious, he's an insightful and delightful host, and his guests are always entertaining and educational. It's always weird, it's always funny and it's always awesome. Thanks for everything Pete, I love your show and look forward to it every week! ððð
Pete's a great comic but he's also a fantastic interviewer. He's genuinely curious, giving with his guests, and of course, affable and quick witted, which keeps the conversations interesting an free-flowing. I love his open ended and nonconfrontational interest in the spiritual side of life, too. The guests are as diverse as the subject matter. An essential subscription.
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'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.
