As much as I love The Brothers Mac, I have never been able to stand listening to tapings of their live shows. Regardless of the sound quality it seems like they are always yelling, and the goofs are, I don't know, more forced? I think it's fantastic that they are able to make some money selling tickets (and I thought Home For The Candlenights was just the most lovely idea), and I'm sure I would enjoy going to one of their live shows (I entertained the idea of driving from NC to Huntington for Home For The Candlenights) but I mostly skip Face 2 Face episodes, and while I gave this one a try for a while, I had to pass on this one pretty soon.

I am planning to drive to Huntington if they do Candlenights 2015! But I have that same feeling about all of my podcasts when they put out a live show. The magic just doesn't translate very well in podcast form when they're performing for a live audience.

I actually prefer their live shows, but perhaps its because the first podcast I heard was a live one, when Justin nicknamed somebody in the audience something like "One in the Pink, Two in the Fink."

They are livelier with an audience, which I can see as sounding forced.

I also enjoy them because I know the guy who got up a few years ago to talk about having his wife cheat on him (know the wife too) that caused the "no bummer" rule. And he is a bummer, and I am glad his legacy is that his question is obliquely referred to every live show.
