You, Me, Them, Everybody is a talk show/podcast that doesn’t suck. Adam Friedland is hosting it tonight at the Wonderland Ballroom.
It’s Friday. There’s an episode of You, Me, Them, Everybody in D.C. tonight. I’m not in D.C. The show will go on. Adam Friedland will guest host. He will mock me. It should be good.
If you haven’t seen Adam perform, here’s a video that will give you no sense of who he is.
I’m turning my show over, again, to this guy. He guest hosted the show in March. He did a horrible job. You can listen to it here. I love it.
He mocks me, he mocks the show, he mocks the guest, he yells into the mic, he dresses like life is a joke, he talks over his announcer. It’s great. It’s horrible on paper, but it’s great in reality.
We did a ‘big’ version of YMTE last week. It was a lot of work. It was on a big stage. It was something I worked on for months, occupying my brain space most moments of each day. Tonight’s version of YMTE will not be that. It’ll probably be better.
This isn’t a plea for sympathy or compliments or a resignation letter. It’s stepping back from something you’ve lived with, assessing what worked and figuring out how to make it better. Consistently plugging away with the same everything will not help. Bringing in a guest host like Adam Friedland might.
Adam is a funny person. I am a guy that likes to asks questions and occasionally attempts to be a funny person. Adam is a stand up comic. I am not. Adam does not care about this show. I care too much about this show. All of these things are reasons I’m using guest hosts.
Guest hosts will fuck shit up. If you’re not willing to fuck shit up, why do anything? Work in HR or something.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRgFKwO0u-c
I won’t host another You, Me, Them, Everybody Live! until May 17. I’ll have guest hosts until then. The shows will be different.
You know how when you’re 14 and you put on a song by a new band you really love and your friend hates that band and you never want to hang out with that friend again because he doesn’t get why that band is so great? Adam Friedland is that great band. If you don’t like him, fine. You were never going to like me. Or Adam was just being a huge dick to you. If that’s the case, I’m really sorry. Please come back.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful night.
