    Long Shot,

    I just e-mailed you this but thought I would post it here as well.

    I just heard the mailbag episode and loved hearing my message read but thought you might like to know we are two different Jacob’s!

    I mean one Jacob (53:17) was left by their partner in the rain and had their sister check into a mental hospital and gave you guys a rave review. It was outstandingly powerful and emotionally resonated with me but was not me.

    Then me– an entirely different Jacob– (55:48) had his message read. We are two entirely different Jacob’s. You thought otherwise during the episode and presumably still do now!

    I thought I would quickly clear that up.

    Nonetheless, it was a thrill! Thank you for reading my message!

    Sorry about that, Jacob (and Jacob!)- totally my fault. This is actually the first time I realized there was more than one Jacob anywhere. I just thought you looked and sounded different every time I saw you.

  3. Jacob says:

    Ha! Fair enough. No sweat. I appreciate the reply!

    Sean, in response to you saying in the parting shots that you don’t want to make a big deal out of the positive effect your podcast has on people, I’d like to encourage you to not feel bad about making a huge deal out of it, because there’s nothing more important in this world.

    This was a great episode! And it was put up on my birthday so that makes me happy. Thank you for telling Maria she’s not alone because she really isn’t.

    Ha Ha, that was great! BEST OPENING EVER.

    Just listened to the mailbag ep. It’s astounding to me how the 4 of you affect (effect?) people, but not surprising. It’s like listening to 4 siblings bicker at the kitchen table. It feels like a family, in every positive way that can mean. And I will never tire of hearing Sean say ‘Goddamit Jaimie!” I hope you guys keep going for a long, long time.

    Maybe we should have a forum up in this ma’a fucka. I don’t know. I maybe also don’t know what a forum is. But I think this “eppy” taught us the LoShoPowWow has a lot of very sensitive, very chatty listeners much like meself. What? Wait. Yeah.

    Flam/Palin 2016!

    Hi my fav podcast. My second fav is improv for humans and matt b announced a pregnancy- meaning his own. that’s an interesting topic and he’s always a 5 star guest. Just a thought. You always do a nice job of theme picking/guest picking so i’m sure you don’t need the help. I just always love when matts on and it does seem like from the mail bags that there’s fellow x-over listeners. Also, whenever you do have matt on could you please ask if running the UCB is a whirlwind? Just curious.

    Love the show and I really liked the warmth and sweetness of this mail bag installation.

    Sean – have you ever drank Pussers? It’s a type of rum that’s the British Navy’s original recipe dating back to Nelson. I was sipping this in the bath tub reading the Surgeon’s Mate and had a whale of a time.
