I like all of those!

If you do one about forms, I promise to vehemently disagree with something someone says and post an excessively long rant about it here.

I like non-improv friends' opinions (and beyond that, the general non-improvising public's opinions). I like warmups. I like notes (maybe including the pros and cons of side-coaching).

These podcasts are fun!

Will, we're allowed to curse on this board. Are you confusing this with Prodigy's "Teen Hangout" board?

Discuss something sketch or video related so that I can care about what you guys are talking about.

Currently I only listen to be supportive.

Watching improv. Does it make you better? Does it burn you out?

A sketch or video one! Good idea! Soon!

If you don't want to listen Brandon I'll just summarize them when I see you, in the style of the old fast talking FedEx spokesman.

Hey Will & John,

Seeing as how you've been having guests on the podcasts, perhaps you can take an opportunity - not only to discuss their respective shows - but to ask them questions about their improv/sketch experience in terms of advice they have or tips they want to share. Just from a student's perspective, that's what I would love to hear.

Loving the podcast, fellows. Some topic ideas:

-Who's the best at random, specific improv skills? Of all the awesome improvisers you've worked with, who do you think does the best supportive walk-ons, the best form-wide or meta moves, the best wacky foreign accents, etc.

-Prodigies vs. Late Bloomers. How is it possible that some people seem to "get it" right away, and what can the rest of us do to get to that point?

-The NYC improv scene (UCB and beyond) circa 2000, 2010... and 2020! (Robots?)

Group Mind - how the f do you achieve it? is it more than just getting everyone one the same page by discovering premises for scenes together through openings?
