    Norm also has a cadence that makes him sound like he thinks he's never been wrong about a single thing in his life

    Hey this character who is a monster is not socialable in a common manner MUST BE AUTISTIC

    Its an interesting problem

    the show itself very heavily implies that he is extremely emotionally damaged by what happened to him as a child

    they're trying to make him into a sympathetic character by implying that, while he is a bad person, things happened to make him that way

    While I understand why someone would make the leap in their head that he has a disorder from what happened to him, norm (and the viewer), have no idea what's going on in kingpin's head on that level. We know he has tics but we don't know why or if they're because of emotional damage or what.

    claiming he's an 'aspie' is such a stretch on multiple levels and also buys into the 'people with mental disabilities are violent thing'

    really should have kept that thought to himself

    Sounds like someone who doesn't realize that disabilities, illnesses, and disorders are different things. Sadly a very common misconception.

    So the new Sailor Business has Jordon's wife.

    I feel bad saying this but she really is the worst guest they've had, she's really unfunny to me. At least it seems like she leaned a bit from the controversy last time.

    I agree with you

    She also made a pretty tasteless sex joke about 14 year old girls

    I'd listen to the Tested podcast more often if Norm wasn't on it. Also, if Gary Whitta went back to being on it all the time.

    Kingpin's tics read way more as OCD to me.

    But I guess what you see in him depends on what you know.

    Sailor Business would be much better if it was just Chris Sims and Betty Felon

    It was all like, Mad Dog and Franzia and Wild Irish Rose

    But with fancy tasting cups

    And pieces of Kraft American and string cheese on toothpicks

    Aw I'd miss Jordan

    I think he's gotten a lot better at podcasting over the past 40 episodes or whatever

    Chris is definitely the strong suit, and Betty Felon is great

    That show is very dependent on who its guest is though, thats for sure

    Lord yes I always feel bad for not liking Norm much in tested....anything. Because he seems competent and interested, but he is not himself interesting. I'm sure he has a personality, just not much of one on camera.

    Well, it's hardly his fault he comes across as bland. He can only represent the norm.

    There's a new MBMBAM

    God I wish they'd get over america's next top model

    its probably the only thing they talk about on a regular basis that's just absolutely unfunny to me

    But

    ANTM is an amazing television experience

    I'd listen to a whole podcast of Griffin talking about those boys in the house

    Seriously, if you guys don't watch ANTM and just know about it through MBMBaM

    I highly recommend checking out a couple episodes at least

    It is exactly as insane as Griffin describes it

    I actually haven't done it, I just heard about it (and really want to do it)

    The version I did was

    Well, I went to an art school

    So some of my friends had a party to practice their color blending prowess

    With a dozen different bottles of MD 20/20

    They were trying to recreate various colors in color charts or paintings or whatever by mixing together the different colors of mad dog

    It was great

    the first time they talk about boys in the house and the INCREDIBLE MOVE that one of the boys makes where he grabs another dude instead of a girl is great.

    I really appreciate the irony of keeping that tally on a sticky note with a bad beaver pun on it.

    This is a thing I do

    It isn't necessarily a thing you have any active control over

    Jordan is super critical to the show imo because he is such a spectacularly excellent foil to Chris, as is Chris to him

    Chris also laughs enough himself to make up for the lack thereof from Jordan, imo

    I came home one day during this summer school vacation to find my wife, son and niece had spent the day watching ANTM. I immediately poked fun of them, until they made me watch with them. It's magical in a way that's hard to describe. It's like you have a window into this bizarre little alternate world.

    I don't think sailor business is a show that needs foils, I guess

    Tune in to It's A Work and listen to me demonstrate exactly what a podcast with a foil would sound like
