I'd kind of like to hear another round table discussion from people at various stages in their improv career discussing what it was like for them coming up through the system.

How has it changed over time.

The addition of higher levels.

Hey, so I love this podcast! it's great since I'm not from New York, so it's nice to have an inside look at one of the greatest improv scenes in the country. I was wondering if you guys could talk about your experiences in level 1 or how you started out sketch writing. Also, maybe you could mention if there were any "big names" on ASSSSCAT that week or at Let's Have a Ball? Thanks and looking forward to the Gethard interview!

All of the forementioned ideas are great.

I would love to hear you guys discuss character, status, environment, objects and how to use them to advance a scene smoothly and efficiently.

Also, you should interview Gil, Neil, Ben and Moynihan eventually. I would personally love all of those.

Also, an interview about the inevetible Robot Improv Scene of the Future would be great!

Would you guys discuss Besser's thoughts yesterday on characters knowing each other? And to what extent it should or should not be emphasized?

A new episode would be great.

I'd love to hear Neil Casey's opinions, if you were looking for guests.

I think there are two different ways improvisers make opinions about other improvisers: what they like/dislike about playing with them and what they like/dislike about watching them from the audience.

What do you like/dislike in an improviser that you're playing with that doesn't affect you much as an audience member (not judging the person on anything besides how they improvise)? Vice versa?

To take it to the extreme, is it possible to like an improviser as a performer but not really like playing with them? Vice versa? Are there "teammate improvisers" and "entertainer improvisers?"

Improvising ethics - can any faux pas (short of making the easy joke at the sacrifice of the form) be forgiven if its funny? i.e. an entire team ganging up on their weakest member, the guy who has to be in every scene, stereotypes, ripping into a completely innocent audience member, etc.
