Because of an update to Windows, the audio stack was broken on this episode, enjoy 20 minutes of Paul talking to himself.

    Just so perfect that the video cuts to Brad repeatedly gesturing to the SOMETHING WENT WRONG message behind him, lips flapping in perfect silence while Paul shoots comments in response to what some may conclude is his perfect lip reading skill...

    Thanks for the smile guys!

    Now we know how valuable Brad is to the show!

    Listened to this entire episode in the car on the way to work, and loved it. Very relatable, and hilarious!

  4. Jeff.Bane

    This was so disturbing to listen to audio only.

    This is encouraging to us in the loop. Because it lets us know that us normal users aren't the only ones that have problems that they can't fix. I like your program especially for your honesty and openness to show us your more fragile side. Keep up the good work.

    This is hilarious. When life hands you lemons, make fun of Brad.

  7. iPhoneX

    Pure. Gold.

    This rivals but does not beat the Windows Weekly episode when Mary Jo's skype video was upside down. That was a classic.

    Please internet, make us something awesome from this!

    Someone needs to remix in dialog for Brad. I wonder what Brad said when Paul responded that he really approved of HP moving to use more natural materials...

  11. shellback

    That was awesome. If there were something like Emmys for podcast, this episode is the one. Technical glitch or performance art.

    I got volume maxxed out, well done Paul given the awkward circumstances looking forward to tomorrow

  13. brettscoast

    lol:) i can't lip read what was Brad saying

  14. Kevin Costa

    I laughed at the end of the audio version:

    *total silence*

    - Paul: "hah, Yep!"

    *ending song*

    This is hilarious! Tomorrow you should have Paul in "mime mode" and Brad with full audio! ?

    No complaints from this end!

    Good thing this show is free, otherwise I would be asking for my money back... :-)

    Paul is going to be wearing a puffy shirt tomorrow (come on guys, tell me you got this joke!).

  18. Oasis

    I thought it would be a good idea to try closed captioning, but that only worked for Paula and I learned that that is done off sound and I should have just got a lip reader to decifer it.

    The Paul Show :-) I liked it!

  20. Darekmeridian

    I don't understand why you even posted this?

  21. Robert_Wood

    And, of course, unlike most days Brad does most of the talking with no audio. Thanks Microsoft!

  22. harmjr

    This needs to be in the Hall of Fame like the one where Brad video was flipped on its side.

  23. davidD

    The first sign of insanity is talking to yourself Paul ….

  24. will

    Yes, this new version of Windows is so much better than the last version.


  25. StevenLayton

    If ever there was an intensive to learn to lip read.

    Reminds me of the comic Garfield Minus Garfield, where Garfield is removed and it's just Jon talking to himself.
