Just listened to this. Quite possibly the best podcast I’ve ever heard. Please make more.

Jim, I almost got really mad at you. I went to listen to Ian’s paranormal podcast. but I got the name wrong and searched for Paracast instead. Not only did it not involve any British comedians. it was the worst podcast I’ve ever heard. Just two guys jerking each other off over UFOs with constant commercial breaks. So glad I came back to check the name,

Anyway, this was hilarious and I hope you do more!

My initial thoughts were “What the hell is this?”
Now I’m just wishing there was more.

I hope Jim never gives over that VR.

I’m late to this, but I can’t believe how many people don’t seem to be getting it in the comments. To me, the banter is pretty great.

Was it Ian that drove you to licking the mold off of old Boglins, Jim?

Bizarre podcast, but far from unpleasant, would definitely listen to another.

You know what would be really funny Jim… If after all this, for no good reason you sent your VR set to a complete stranger like me.

This was great. If it proves anything its the we need more northerners on the JimQ and or the pod. Oh, and that Ray Peacock needs some VR.

The jokes were funny, but the level of abuse was hard to listen to sometimes.

Am I alone in not even noticing any examples of Ian being harsh to Jim? I mean, he almost immediately set up a scenario where ‘Jim’ is actually a construct performed by an actor, and most of the digs were going back to him as he ‘pulled back the curtain’, so to speak. At no point did he actually insult Jim as a person or a content creator.

In the UK, it’s not abuse, it’s friendly banter. People often make that mistake who haven’t experienced that sort of communication before. There are simple ways to tell the difference between banter and intentionally insulting behaviour, but am preferring to keep this brief. Suffice to say, this is nought to worry about m’lad..

I mean, I agree the abuse was pretty full on, but Jim seemed to love it – I mean, REALLY love it. Some people have to pay a lot of money for that kind of verbal humiliation y’know

Hey Jim, thought I’d throw in my two cents… I loved the podcast (besides the echo you had through the whole show). Hope you and Ian do more episodes together!

oh my god you actually did it. I thought you were just joking when you were talking about it on twitter. then again, so were probably you yourself, at least in the beginning.
you utterly mad, mad geniuses.

It could use tightening (and less echo), but I certainly understand that Ian doesn’t want to spend a lot of time editing a (non-monotized?) side-project. s’all good though.

Now I wish I chimed in earlier when I was enjoying your podcast. Maybe I could have laid the groundwork that I enjoy the antics of you, Gavin, and Laura and built up some goodwill. However, I didn’t so I might as well be that jerk that only comments with negativity: this podcast was impossible to listen to. Ian isn’t nearly as charming as you two must think. His constant interruptions with the same joke over and over again were insufferable. Even when you asked to stay more on point he kept up his schtick which wasn’t funny 10 minutes… Read more »

Impossible to listen to and yet, you did.

I mostly agree with Micheal here.

I had a few mild chuckles every now and again but I found this particular episode a bit annoying for the most part. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was insufferable though.

And as someone who usually likes Jim’s more absurd and “far out there” work, like Jimsaw, Pogfucker, Mass Effect Gay Erotic Gay Love Story ect….I found this one to be lacking. In my very humble opinion, it either doesn’t go far enough or needs to be pulled back a bit. I’m not sure which one.

Well I absolutely loved it. As a fan of Jim’s earlier podcasts (Jonathan Holmes-era), I though it was fantastic return to form.

I sadly (mostly) agree. Perhaps this could be done again but there would need to be a much stronger structure. It was really all over the place and hard to follow, I am sorry to say. The natural flow in all of your other podcasts, from early podtoids all the way to the most recent Podquisition, was totally lacking here.

But guys. It’s a podcast called Jim Won’t Give Ian His VR. I wasn’t expecting ANY structure. Hell I didn’t even think this was real when he announced it. I didn’t even think it was real when it popped up on the site. Thought it was just gonna be an hour and a half of silence. All things considered it was much better than I thought it’d be. Tho to be fair Ian’s interruptions were annoying. But not because I have anything against him. I just hate it when someone is trying to say something and they keep getting side… Read more »

Perhaos I slightly misspoke. Structure isn’t what I was expecting and I don’t actually think it would fix the episode, or any future ones. Having structure would just be better than this one. I really think the good back and forth and rapport which Jim and his usual members have makes the podcast flow much smoother and also makes it more entertaining. I just think this was a misfire in terms of quality.

Well, another (regular?) fixture to add to my already overloaded podcast itinerary. Thanks, Jim. *thanks god for Jim*

But hay, this was great and I’ll gladly find time for it as often as it appears. The Jimquisition family grows, and I am happy. Top stuff!

The start, where you talk about money, is really off putting and awkward, but the podcast improves significantly as it goes.
