Henry, the youngest JJGO fan, is on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4142463/

The sky's the limit for this guy!

Another great episode! Jon Glaser was a delight, and Henry, you hit it out of the park!

HOWEVER!

Since Henry arguably got on the show for being the youngest fan of all time. It got me to thinking, surely I can procure my own spot on JJGO's now-famous "fourth chair" by being the most average fan. Here then is a sampling of qualities that cement my position as the absolute median of the JJGO fanbase.

1. I am a white male in my mid-thirties.
2. I am an in-house Graphic Designer for a tech company.
3. Although I carry the responsibilities of a grown-up (married, have children, fear of death), my day-to-day activities showcase an unwillingness to let go of childhood (Video games, pretending to buy Legos for my children, but c'mon, Dr. Who et al.).
4. Unsure of Downton Abbey Season 3's quality (leaning towards disappointing, but loved any story lines with Thomas or Mrs. Patmore, WHY DOESN'T PATMORE HAVE A SPIN-OFF CALLED "PATMORE'S PLACE"?).
5. Facial hair.

All rock-solid proof of my average-ness. I look forward to hearing from Maximum Fun headquarters for booking times. Maybe with Nick Adams? He's always dependably great.

I enjoyed how you avoided giving out Henry's surname, and then listed all of his credits. Regarding explicit TV shows you are watching with family members, my sister and I both enjoy Peep Show which has frequent horrible, awkward sexual encounters. The way to get through them is just not to make eye contact and never talk about those scenes ever to one another.

I don't mean to ruin anyone's fun, but that IMDB page is for Henry Shotwell, and the guest clearly listed his name as Henry Blank.

Sorry.

Also that page mentions nothing about Magic: The Gathering, so that should have raised a few flags, really.

I’ve eaten at least a billion wings in my thirty-odd years and I think BW3’s wings are actually really great. They’re consistently crispy-fried, meaty, and not too fatty. Their spicy garlic sauce is absolutely delicious.

One thing I would recommend is to get the wings plain and the sauce on the side. Use a fork or celery stick to put some sauce on the wing right before you eat it. The wings stay deliciously crispy and you can control the wing-to-sauce ratio to your personal taste. This is absolutely essential for take-out wings as they’ll get horribly soggy otherwise, but it’s even worthwhile when you’re eating in the restaurant.

Did Jesse hire Jon Glaser specifically for the boatparty.biz spot? He played that to a frickin' tee. He'd been quite quiet up until the Jumbotron segment and then really worked with the ad, when usually guests keep a bit quiet during the Jumbotron. That he then brought it up again at the end of the show? You really couldn't asked for better brand reinforcement.

One of the more subtle bits, but I laughed my ass off during the whole boatparty segment and then when he dropped it again later, I lost it.

On the subject of the war between red and grey squirrels, both sides of the conflict had better hope these badasses don't show up:

Sadly, I tried to start a podcast club when I was at college. Not through the school or anything. Tried again when I moved elsewhere. It was bi-weekly and we swapped in three different podcasts each meeting. Nobody could ever manage to listen to all of them, not even shorter programs like Planet Money and 99% Invisible.

I'd like to volunteer to make a GROUP STUDY GUIDE for each episode of JJGo!

This episode:

1. What is the preferred location of racoons for jogging/public sex?
2. Describe the outfit you would wear to a Creative-Type Meeting.
3. What happens if you go to boatparty.biz? Be specific.
4. Plan your guest title when you are a featured guest on JJGo. Will you keep the same one for every intro, or switch it up?
5. What was --- or will be --- the first concert you attend?
6. What is Henry's last name? (Some light extra-podcast sleuthing necessary.)

1. Alleys with exposed garbage cans.
2. Nice shirt, tie, sweater, jeans, matching/coordinated sneakers. Basically what I wear every day, because I look good every day.
3. You FIND OUT FIRST.
4. Tyler Lastname: Unqualified. Tyler Lastname: Undeserving. Tyler Lastname: Underperforming. In that order.
5. The first concert I remember attending was probably either Tim Noah (Wow Wow Wibble Wobble Wazzy Woodle Woo!) or Sesame Street Live. The first concert as an adult-type person was Jimmy Eat World, Tenacious D, and Weezer.
6. Shotwell!

1. My front lawn, APPARENTLY
2. Collared shirt unbuttoned with a graphic T-shirt underneath
3. There's a... a boat? Is that right?
4. "Monty, in the wrong room"
5. The Fresh Festival in, I think, 1984. The headliners were Run-DMC, and the other groups included Whodini and possibly the Fat Boys. And certainly a few more that have been lost to history even more than Whodini.
6. Blank.

(EDIT: I looked it up. There was also Kurtis Blow, who I am surprised to have forgotten. And Newcleus, which is pretty understandable to forget.)

1. Central Park, NYC, at the top of a tree they just corkscrewed up.
2. Some nice jeans, a shortsleeve polo shirt with a tie and a cardigan.
3. You enter your email address into a boat.
4. "Hoodrat."
5. The first concert I saw was Thrice. If I had yet to see a concert, my first would be Thrice.
6. Last Name Withheld.
