    I had to come over to your site. YouTube won’t let me comment any more!

  2. TheDarkWall says:

    Outstanding guest. Would love to see him again

  3. TypicalStranger says:

    omg he is so RED

  4. Ericmcdonkey says:

    I worked for papa johns about 15 -20 years ago and averaged 17-20 bucks an hour and had 25-30 an hour nights with tips being about 75% of that maybe more but the “bianess” as he keeps saying was great to work for and loads of fun and interesting stories came from that job

  5. Dskingsjr says:

    I can’t wait to see the cast crew hanging out at the papas house

    Went to a pi, za place today, tried to get a slice. Apparently they don’t do that anymore.

    • Iamthepyro says:

      Pizza*

    • BillH says:

      If you check around you can usually find someplace, but it depends on your area. I looked up pizza places on yelp and looked the menus on the wall, if it said slices I went! Here in SoCal I started going to slice shops when Newsom said we couldn’t eat in restaurants anymore, so I got a slice and ate off the truck of my car. Screw that guy.

  7. Before I began reading Martin Armstrong’s blog, I subscribed to the quantity theory of money, which John is talking about. But the inflation today is cost push: climate shift due to the grand solar minimum has been interfering with crop yields since about 2015, now we have supply chains disrupted by covid lock downs, and John correctly notes the labor shortage caused by the insane unemployment benefits. These are driving inflation.

    Trump’s spending didn’t result in price inflation (although the Fed has been feeding inflation into the stock markets since 2008) because the economy was cooking and people were working so supply and demand balanced. Now, supply is shrinking while demand remains about the same. But people must eat and the food shortages are going to create insane price increases at the grocery store.

    This was way cooler and more interesting that I thought it would be.
    Good guest.

  9. Justino-Mids says:

    I had no idea Papa John was so cool. What they did to this mans reputation is disgusting. We gotta stop being such lemmings. Good people get hurt and we just watch it and do nothing.

  10. Campo87 says:

    Papa’s in the house!!!

  11. Burly9 says:

    Biden can walk and talk

    Just not at the same time

  12. Koko says:

    People don’t want a leader they want a handout

  13. Abstract says:

    Papa John is a Stoic. Whether he knows it or not.

  14. Hatecaster says:

    Biden can speak correctly. He’s just quite literally speaking to the lizard people.

  15. shineonstone says:

    Years ago when I had Papa John’s pizza for the first time, I was like “there’s no way this can be a chain restaurant”, because it was miles above pizza hut and dominos. And I have to say that the garlic butter sold me too lol. Yeah, unfortunately since John left, i’ve noticed a dip in quality.

    Papa John is a real one. This episode redeemed my faith in humanity a little

  16. Ray3D says:

    Man.. this guy is such a wonderful person. I like with how much humility he talks despite his massive success and gave some really sound advice.

  17. UppityG says:

    HELLO TECH DUDES: The Reply buttons still don’t work, site wide. Grrrrrrrrr….. The insta-popout side burger menu continues to stay repaired, so there’s that.

    On topic: Schnatter is a cool guy and a really great guest. I dunno if you can ever get him back so a proper bonuscast can be done, but I hope so.

    I appreciate Crossland keeping a firm grip on his weirdo question tangents.

    Thanks Pool, Lydia and the whole team.

  18. KMerckCPA says:

    I literally ordered Papa John’s for my family and was eating it when I saw that Papa John would be the guest. Nice!

  19. AR305 says:

    One thing Papa John said that really resonated with me was when he said the: “the liberal left elite see people as numbers, not humans..”

    I really feel like this applies to the left as a whole.. none of their ideology seems to be rooted in reality, everything is idealist and naive and nothing they advocate for has ever shown to be functional, definitely not benevolent like they believe they are.

  20. jnkinn says:

    My butt’s been wiped!

  21. JordanJ0888 says:

    Fantastic guest with a wonderful story.

    We need more Papa John’s in the world.

  22. marblecreekmonarch says:

    Great guest and episode! If given the opportunity at launching a successful business, I’d avoid going public at all costs, knowing what I know through this interview and my own corporate experience. I wished the franchise’s would stand together against the terrible culture and corporate greed impressed upon them!

  23. DatgumKirby says:

    Thank you guys for giving this man a platform to speak and express himself. I knew he got unfairly ousted but didn’t know the whole story. Side note giving people a hand up was once giving them a job, an opportunity to succeed!

  24. mainten84 says:

    It’s not all about people not working. It’s the debt money woke corporations and organizations use to outbid small business owners for labor. If there is a business offering 10-12$ an hour for labor, and another is offering 20+ for equivalent labor, who wins? It’s not the business that can only afford 10-12$.

  25. Stickywicket1977 says:

    Timcast might have the best rotation of guests on the show than any other show out there

  26. Stickywicket1977 says:

    Papa John please get into politics we need people with actual balls right now

  27. Anony says:

    He should start a competing company called Father John’s and run them out of business

  28. QQC_Paul says:

    The Swamp stole an election to gain power. The audits coming out will reveal that, and then the true test begins.

  29. NoOne123 says:

    what a fucking awesome dude. Hearing him talk about business and economy and him managing his business was fantastic. We really need more people like him.

  30. Jaybediah says:

    Good episode, I had no idea how cool Papa was.

  31. Zelten_027 says:

    It’s a shame this episode was shorter than normal but it was still great. You should see if he’d like to do a full one with you guys if you do end up going to his place for the vlog.

  32. DoobieMcNasty says:

    I always imagined John to have an east-coast accent. It’s kind of refreshing to hear his voice, and his outlook. The best par in my opinion, was when he said “Melania speaks four languages, Biden doesn’t speak one.” That was a hell of a well-deserved dagger.

  33. bighsker250 says:

    I really enjoyed your guest tonight. Papa John was a very entertaining .

  34. bighsker250 says:

    I really enjoyed your guest tonight. Papa John was a very entertaining and likable guy.

  35. Forky says:

    Hey Tim. Just trying to comment from the YouTube show, but I (as a member) would be more than happy with you taking a week off from TimCast to have a pizza-making contest with Mr. Schnatter and Ian. Even Lydia, hell, that would be a blast. Going to go back to finishing the full episode then gonna watch this. Best health to you and yours (and anyone who reads this 😉 )

  36. yamyule says:

    Steam roll them bitch ass mofo board members Johnny!

  37. reaper says:

    Great guest! Thanks for having him.

  38. Doughppe says:

    What a great guest! I hope he wins his lawsuit!

  39. Vanishingfox says:

    I have great respect the Papa. I’ll admit back in the day I never thought ordering pizza online would be a big deal but man did i order a lot of papa john’s befor I left the office and needed a quick meal for the family on Friday nights. It was so awesome. Unfortunately ever since he was pushed out of he compay we noticed a decline in our favorite pizza. So we have been supporting our mom and pop joints.

  40. wbmarchant@gmail.com says:

    Papa John is a great ass dude.

  41. Codebrah says:

    What a great guy. Good episode forsure.

  42. Suncoast_Samurai says:

    Hey this damn thing won’t let me reply to comments!!!

    Can anyone else reply?

  43. GovernorDog says:

    This podcast was awesome. I didnt know Papa John was such a great guy! Thank you for bringing him on Tim & Team

  44. Goodwin1776 says:

    The guest list is top notch lately! You got Steve Bannon, Allen West, Jose Lamas, Yeonmi Park, Papa John, Candace Owens, Michael Knowles, Brandon Tatum, etc. Good job everyone at Timcast!!

    When are Larry Elder and Trump going to make an appearance?

  45. DogFacePonySold1er says:

    I cleared my cache, restarted my phone, cleared my cache again, and I’m still getting ads. There was 1 day I didn’t get ads… I still remember that day, I was like, ah they fixed it…. Then it broke again.

    Amazing interview. Goes in the top ten. What a real down to earth dude John is. Thanks Tim

  48. SermonFapple says:

    “Melania speaks 4 languages, Biden cant speak 1”

    That’s a bipartisan burn if I ever saw one.

  49. eheff says:

    Pizza man will show us the way. Let his cheesy tomato sauce be a beacon in these dark times.

  50. AvengerXP says:

    DO NOT SELL BELOW 51% CONTROL. It’s on you.

  51. Cheddarman says:

    Does dementia make you unpresidential?

  52. Ashley_H says:

    I so hope you guys come out here to Kentucky to do the cast castle episode!
    As a business owner I completely agree with John’s sentiments. It’s hurting so many industries including my own (I co-own a small salon about 30 mins east of Louisville). Hairdressers don’t want to work in the industry because it’s one that if you don’t do the work and the due diligence to grow your clientele you don’t get paid. People want to do less work for more money and definitely don’t want to earn it.

  53. CavScout says:

    GREAT GUEST! THANKS.

  54. Heartlandsoul says:

    Real question here- Nebraska, where I’m at, has ended unemployment in March. It’s July here and people are STILL having a heck of a time finding workers… where are they?

    Perhaps some hard hitting journalism from timcast would be useful here. As a mama, I know many women who, after being home all year job 2020, decided staying home with their kiddos was worth the financial sacrifice of going to one income household. I wonder how that affects the job pool.

    Would love to see what y’all dig up.

  55. Bigji_781 says:

    What a great guest. Tim this alone was worth my monthly sub.

  56. dreamscape.artisan says:

    PJs changed the game for delivery pizza for sure, what a great guest!

    As far as small businesses, I’ve been a chef for 20 years, from Michelin level to food trucks and in between and I’ve owned and partnered in businesses the past 10 years and I can’t even express how hard it was, even before all these candyland checks Ol Creepy Joe is doling out… the employee problem is now at a level that I seriously believe that if I ever do another restaurant project it will incorporate robotics or something like that because this industry will never be the same again.

    A BIG part of the problem that is not to be overlooked and that came long before Biden or Trump, has to do with the ‘snobification’ of the American consumer. No one in their right mind would work in customer service at this point, especially for low pay, but generally no one wants to deal with these people no matter how much money they get. The same effect has also reached employees, who, especially in the kitchen, have a real physically and psychologically demanding job to do and usually without much appreciation either. Coming up in some legendary tough kitchens we built our skins from bricks of asbestos and most of the guys I used to work with back then are generally capable of dealing with whatever life throws at them now. Even if they aren’t particularly financially successful, they’re secure enough in themselves to find solace in equilibrium. The kids in kitchens these days are made of fucking cotton candy and crumpled balls of wet saran wrap. They won’t be prepared for anything that doesn’t come pre-assembled and force-fed.

    Well, that got out of hand fast…Papa John was fantastic. Bless his heart, and not in the sarcastic southern sense either…

  57. Yobuyahouse says:

    I messed up someone’s food once when I was working at BWW i feel so bad still that was years ago

  58. Abarela67 says:

    Have papa on again! Fun times great shows!

  59. RockyService says:

    Better analysis
    Better podcast
    Timcast

  60. AUDREK says:

    Dang guys y’all caught a big fish tonight!!!

  61. Wolv256 says:

    Wow, I never knew the full story about this guy. He seems like a good dude. Rodger Goodell is evil.

    Also, their pizza went downhill fast. I actually believe what he said about better ingredients because they used to have good pizza, but once they overtook his company they ruined it. I don’t know that it still has better ingredients.

  62. TheLastCanofSpam says:

    PAPA 2024!

  63. Turk_Longwell says:

    Test. F the Police. F them. F them all. …

    Fuck the Police.
    Test.

  64. BigJoe77 says:

  65. Turk_Longwell says:

    Trump understands business.
    Biden barely understands what’s going on around him.
    Papa reminds me of Trump, but only because he knows business.
    Once John gets his stuff straight. He needs to run for Congress.
    Even if the system is still against him. We the People aren’t.
    The Dude is chill, he loves, respects his people… all people, is a leader and loves America.
    What more can you ask for.
    A great description of what a Trillion dollars really is.
    It’s nearly an impossible number to understand.
    Max told me to buy Bitcoin. I listened.
    Swanbitcoin.com … free advertising Max. I want .50%. lol
    John is good good. He is smooth with his words. Calm.
    Make your own bed! Hail Lobster.
    The Swamp cares not about the people. We are Magats!
    Second Class Citizens.
    Papa John, Sir.. God Bless you, Sir.
    God F-ing Bless you.
    Shout out to Lydia for booking John.
    Lydia is Top-Notch.
    Shout out to Ian to not asking drug questions. lol. Should I thank him for that. lol. yes, lol.

    I’m ready to see Tim and Ian cruisin’ in that Camero through Louisville

  70. John_Beart says:

    👍👍

  71. Mercin1988 says:

    Haven’t ate papa John’s since I found out about the hostile take over of his company and it sucks cause it was my favorite pizza shop

  72. Lexicommonzero says:

    Agreed I think that could be made into a great segment

  73. SPIRALSURFER says:

    I second that! The balls of Ian challenging the papa to a pizza cook off. Lol

  74. SPIRALSURFER says:

    Good job with this one. Really enjoyed it.

  75. Here’s a verbatim excerpt of Bumblin’ Joe Biden talking to Don Lemon at his recent CNN Town Hall live broadcast, in which he proved to 9 billion people that he doesn’t need a tele prompter.
    “…y’you got the vaccine, are you, are you ok, I mean you, you seem, no it works or ya know or or the mum and dad or or or or the neighbour or when you go to church or when ya no no no I I I really mean it there are trusted interlocutors think of the people if if your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were there’s a man on the moon errr or somethin’ or you know or whether those aliens are here or not ya know who are the people they talk to behind the kids who love talkin’ about it…”

  76. AgentCooper says:

    Tim, the Papa is right! You’ve got a gift for what you do. Tonight’s episode was so interesting and entertaining. I used to watch Fox after work for an hour while I had dinner but haven’t done that for a long time as Timcast IRL is more informative and love hearing the diverse views. Shout out to Lydia and Ian as well because they are all part of the magic. I did spit out my food however when John said Pluto and then doubled down on it. 🤣😂

  77. techcrisis says:

    short and sweet looking forward to the video at his place

  78. JBodhi says:

    The papas send out was legendary!! Also, simpler is better
