Hold On

If you're looking forward to the launch of our weekly integrated format, you'll just have to wait one more week. Do you want to complain our manager? Give us a call on a special download this week, as Josh and Emily recreate the experience of being on hold using patron-recommended JAMS. It's like calling your cable company, but fun!?

  1. You guys managed to make a Hold episode that was even more jamming than an Exercise episode. Doesn't hurt that it's hilarious!

    So appreciate the thought going into even the "interval" episodes. I'll never quit you.

  2. "I'm sorry, can you please hold?" Classic! And hey, you played that Phantasy Star II JAM. Love it.

  3. I'm glad the internet is a venue for creativity like this. This episode was a lot of fun, hope you're inspired to do many like it

  4. So I said this a while ago, but I really hope there is a healthy discussion taking place on the social media outlets. Good stuff!

    1. Thanks for the well-wishes Nathan, but the party is still here! So glad you enjoyed this patron-powered mix. I do!

  5. This made me really want Capcom Girls to be a real show. I'd watch the hell out of it. Also, I'm at the final (pretty sure) boss parade in Gunstar Heroes - way to go Emily!

    1. Uh oh, those are famous last words with that game! Seriously, I thought it was over at least four times before it was actually over. You can do it!

      Josh's announcer voice is definitely one of the greatest things we've discovered on this podcast. I can't get through his commercials, especially the Adventures of Smesh, without smiling so much that my face hurts.

    2. After watching Halt And Catch Fire on AMC, I am convinced that Capcom Girls could be an amazing show, in the right hands.

  6. This is hands down my favorite thing the VGM Jukebox has done. I am a HUGE fan of sketch comedy involving fake commercials, movie trailers, radio ads, and of course, automated phone systems.

    Props to the both of you, this made my week!
