dd-hoffman asked:

Two things: A) The Hot-or-Nots are for sure the ticket to rising from the murky, undesirable third slot to the much more distinguished second, and B) I was hoping you guys might cover An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. Also, I just want you both to know I feel a special and probably misplaced personal connection to the "boner" clip from my first request. It's clearly the only reason I'm a devout "Pwnie".

Good to hear from one of our earliest supporters!  We will add Owl Creek to our list.  And where would the podcast be without our beloved boner clip?  Maybe in first place in the heated TZ podcast wars… But that can’t be helped now.  Thanks for listening all this time!

Anonymous asked:

Have you guys done 'The Big, Tall Wish' yet? It's one of the many overlooked ones that's pretty good not great.

That sounds like a review for our podcast.  We haven’t covered it yet, but will add it to the list.

In our hee-larious episode on “Death’s Head Revisited,” we discussed the Eichmann trial and the phrase the “banality of evil.”  Coined by Hannah Arendt in her book on the subject, the basic idea is that Eichmann was an unthinking bureaucrat who rubber-stamped the Holocaust out of dullness and obligation.  That concept has been challenged a lot over the years, and a new book recently translated into English presents maybe the most convincing rebuttal of Arendt yet.  Read about it in the NYTimes here.

Congrats to Friend of the PwnTM Gabe Gronli, who just won an Emmy for his writing on the Colbert Report.  Click here to listen to his guest spot, riffing on our “A World of His Own” episode, which I believe now also has won an Emmy by association.
