“If These Walls Could Talk” caused me to silently weep in fear. Also, I agree that getting sexed by a ghost would be better than getting sexed by old people. Great show! Cheers!

I can’t figure out which drug the old folks gave Ben & his wife, but I bet there’s a DVD somewhere in that B&B that would explain how the gum got stuck to the wall.

Big Fan, from day 1. The best story in this weeks podcast was also possibly one of the hardest one to listen too. Mr Ben Grant used the word,”LIKE” like, like so many times, like it drove me up the wall, like insane like.

Towards the end I didn’t even care what the story was about, cause all I kept hearing was how many times he said “Like”. Sorry..I guess that’s a peeve of mine, people who when telling stories can’t go 5 words without saying the word, “like”.

Still a great story…for the love of meatballs…don’t go raping a great story with “Ums” and “Likes”

Wow, you’re right about the ‘likes.’ Jesus. My bad. I don’t speak in public very much… I don’t actually talk At All very much. I think much better on paper.

We do like, um and conjunction trimming where we can, but live performances include echo and audience sound, so it’s tricky. More importantly, we make a point of including folks on the show who don’t work with a mic on stage on a regular basis — even people who have never been on stage ever — because it’s about people and stories, not stand-uppy polish. So dammit Blake, you’ll take like and you’ll like like. 🙂

I didn’t notice the overuse of ‘like’ in the slightest during Garant’s piece. Get a hobby Blake.

Ben Garant is an amazing story teller. Blake raped himself with poor punctuation and spelling.

I read the comment about the “likes” and “ums” so I was waiting to be annoyed but it never happened. I thought Ben’s story was done really well. Great stories all around. 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
