Faces and Sounds is a landmark, a signpost, a coalescence in conversation, for Weirdos (i.e. Pete’s loyal fans). Pete isn’t exhaustingly famous but he’s exceptionally “known”. Here’s Pete Holmes for the uninitiated: big, goofy man telling big, goofy jokes, super into Jesus, married young, gets cheated on, gets divorced, Chicago to New York to LA, an eponymous talk show, a cancellation and “Crashing” a creative non-fiction autobiographical dramedy on HBO. You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes, a podcast that’s equal parts interview, diary, riff session and those meandering heart-to-hearts you have at 3am, bridges all facets of Pete. It’s the glue that holds our interest. Listeners are made to understand Pete, his hang ups, his evolution, his mind state and happenings, and where his new jokes are heading. At the same time, the show offers a model for understanding themselves. It builds familiarity while advocating for joy and vulnerability. If You Made It Weird is an intimate run on sentence with one of the world’s funniest people, Faces and Sounds is an exclamation point. Just use your imagination for the faces.
