Coming down the mountain with Jon Dore.
Coming down the mountain with Jon Dore.
Oh very awesome. I love Jon Dore’s comedy.
Long time subscriber here. I hate that I’m this guy, but here goes…I hate the blowhard Bill Cosby has become, but you are WRONG. He earned a PhD from UMass Amherst. Earned it. Through coursework. Like a regular schlub. I comes up so often on the podcast, I finally had to weigh in.
Where are you guys moving to?
Well Zed, I have to be this guy because your information is not factual…
In 1976, Cosby earned a Doctor of Education (Ed.D) degree from the University of Massachusetts. For his doctoral research, he wrote a dissertation entitled, “An Integration of the Visual Media Via ‘Fat Albert And The Cosby Kids’ Into the Elementary School Curriculum as a Teaching Aid and Vehicle to Achieve Increased Learning”.
Bill Cosby never earned a Ph.D., and it is therefore inappropriate to place “Ph.D.” behind his name. The difference between a Ph.D. and an Ed.D. is significant.
Upon further research I have to give Zed an apology of sorts. While what I placed above there is true, it depends on where and when you received that EdD as to how it compares to a PhD. Some people who have earned EdDs are called Dr. and some are not. Some EdDs come from somewhat questionable institutions while others are quite reputable. I would assume that UMass Amherst is a relatively respectable institution.
The ones which I can call to mind while I listen to the discussion – Caddyshack. Sixteen Candles. The Jerk. Waiting (i know. stuck a chord.) Gotta be more. If it will make Matt feel better, I’ll come back and post every time I come up with one.
As a life long Expos fan I really enjoyed Jimmy and Jon playing the name the Expos game…Kept waiting for John Boccabella’s name to come up.
Eliot, why do you cut to yourself every time your name is mentioned? It’s unnecessary. I remember when only your thumb made it in the video. Those were glorious days. You do a wonderful job otherwise, but I’m afraid i find it very distracting when you jump in and continuously cut to yourself. Sorry but it has been bothering me for awhile.
I hadn’t finished the episode when I wrote my above comment. Jimmy and Pat confirmed it. Shut it down.
Greg gets it!
Cancel the search, I’m calling it now:
Best first-time guest ever!
Eliot, you’re doing a great job. I enjoy your occasional reaction shots. They have only added to my enjoyment of the podcast.
What is this business of moving studios?
Goddamnit Justin I just read all of Garon’s notes to figure out wtf you’re talking about and I still don’t know!
Because they had a BOOtiful date!
… and another …
Because they heard that’s where they serve the spirits!
Adopt me Matt – I am giving you comedy gold here ….
Because they heard the music was spooktakular!
Because they heard that they were playing soul music!
Because they (mis)heard that the music was going to be really Ghoul!
I’m wondering if I – like Jim – tend to forget what’s going on in the new episodes more and more quickly. For the life of me I can’t remember if in this season Jimmy has ever commented on the fact that by now he finally IS allowed to leave out the “INDHD”-part of Eliot’s introduction (see episode 1005: Jimmy: “When can I drop the INDHD? When can I drop that from your intro?” Eliot: “How about January 1st, 2013.”).
(This is in no way intended as a slam on Eliot. I just noticed it while relistening to old episodes.)
(I’m also wondering why I called Jimmy Jim…)
With talk of The Jimmy Pardo Experience and the first stupid question being the funniest thing Jimmy has said, parts of this podcast sounded like a eulogy.
Great episode, great new member of the fam.
Lot of Eliot talk here this week, and I’m only here to add: Hey Eliot, I miss your little quips at the end of the credits… Why don’t you do them anymore??
James Ronald Ace Frehley Pardo. Con-Firmed!
Taking a break from the quips. Maybe they’ll come back next season…
Sorry Matt! It was more of a stupid comment about my list of movies being incomplete and you being the main moderator of these threads than anything. I must apologize for sending you on a wild goose chase.
