what is the best way you both deal with stress? i just find myself in that constant state of stress, anxiety, and depression, especially nowadays with the pandemic and how it left me quite distant from others

Kaiya Thomas on May 17, 2021 at 11:39 am

i’ve gotten super into the enneagram lately because of u all and discovered i’m a type 3. since then i’ve really gotten to know myself ! are you thinking of doing an enneagram eb episode where u go more in depth about how you got into it, your type and perhaps your type wing? (if you know what wing you are)

Nancie Valdivia on May 17, 2021 at 9:43 am

Hello!, have you ever had a idea that you guys thought was to much for the show? And if so what was it?

Luke Warburton on May 17, 2021 at 9:38 am

How do you feel about having a collaboration with Cesar Milan on the show with your dogs.

Sydney Cook on May 17, 2021 at 9:24 am

What’s your go-to comfort food for when you’re having a bad day?

Naomi Wong on May 17, 2021 at 9:21 am

Hi guys! had a question about Ronstadt- I was wondering, given that this is a collaborative project with other production houses- whether you recorded your audio in house and sent it elsewhere to be edited into its final form- and maybe directed via zoom (or something similar) or if you went to a different recording studio to do these roles? I myself am on a scripted audio podcast and i'm in a different country to the rest of the production! and I'd be interested to know how this experience has been the same or differed from other podcast experiences you'ce had :) xx

Brian Casey on May 17, 2021 at 4:17 pm

how do you help a friend going through a mental illness such as BPD that's out of your control?

Brian Casey on May 17, 2021 at 4:14 pm

Rhett what's your favorite meal to cook for your wife/family?

Laura McCallan on May 17, 2021 at 9:08 am

What's your favourite smell?!

Peter McNally on May 17, 2021 at 9:06 am

To the both of you: How have you been? Anything exciting happen lately? :D

Melissa Anthony on May 17, 2021 at 8:54 am

Honestly, I'm asking this question super late and don't think it will make the cut buuuuut what's the last thing you were super late for ?

Kristi Beaudoin on May 17, 2021 at 3:23 pm

Rhett- Do you have any plans to adopt Barbara a doggie brother or sister? 🐕 or does she prefer to be ths only dog child.

Anna Baldwin on May 17, 2021 at 7:46 am

So we know Rhett is playing Ronstadt, but can we have any clues about the characters you are playing Link? 👀

Rapha Conrad on May 17, 2021 at 7:27 am

Link, you tweeted a month ago about seeking advice to get rid of dog poop of the rug. Who do it, Jade or Jasper?

Erica Darnell on May 17, 2021 at 6:20 am

I know Link is gonna get bombarded with Jasper questions but I have to know: is he a long haired mini dachshund or a mix like Jade? Congrats on the new family member, he is soooo beautiful! 🥰

Erica Darnell on May 17, 2021 at 6:24 am

Forgive me if you’ve answered this on EB already. I don’t listen until Tuesday. 🙈

Carissa Nardello on May 17, 2021 at 5:33 am

As a fellow fan of Survivor who are some of your favorite players/favorite seasons of all time?! My current favorite player is Rob Cesternino from Survivor: The Amazon, but this may be because I'm listening to his Podcast all the time. However my favorite season has to be Millennials vs Gen X!

Alexandra Eeles on May 17, 2021 at 5:07 am

what do you do at mythical to foster a positive vibe in the workplace?
I’m noticing at work the vibes are off and wondering if you guys have tips as management for me to pass on that might help?

Jessica Templin on May 17, 2021 at 4:55 am

What are your top three favorite albums of all time?

Zephanie Szarek on May 17, 2021 at 12:19 am

Hey, Rhett and Link!! I have my first vacation from work coming up in July. Do y'all have any tips or ideas on some financially friendly spots or to start with, for a couple in south central Illinois?

Barron White on May 16, 2021 at 11:51 pm

Have you seen Spiral? Could you convince the studio to do a, "Spiral: Based on the Book of Saw," themed episode?

Kayla Samson on May 16, 2021 at 11:24 pm

Congrats on the new addition to the Neal family! Jasper is adorable! How did you decide on his name?

Brittany Watne on May 16, 2021 at 10:58 pm

How do you think the pandemic impacted your relationship with each other?

Nina Knific on May 16, 2021 at 10:23 pm

Last year, Twitter once recognized Rhett as “trending” all by himself. This was an algorithmic mistake, but how do you deal with both of you not getting recognition for something?

Grace Auld on May 17, 2021 at 4:56 am

Link, how have Jasper, Jade & Sokka been getting along?

Jessica Ross on May 16, 2021 at 9:21 pm

Okay Link Neal, we have to know, how is Jasper fitting in with the other fur children and the rest of the family.? What is his temperament compared to Jade?

Rhett, now the Neals have another dog, does that mean the McLaughlins are going to follow suit? Could Barbara be getting a sibling too?

R.S. Rutherford on May 16, 2021 at 9:07 pm

Sort of a two-parter, hope that's alright!

First, just wanna say I'm a big fan (working on losing the weight though!), been watching for a LONG time and I'm glad to see you're still going strong with GMM. Looking forward to you both dying on the show one day, as per your wishes.

Off the top of your heads, where would you each want to see Mythical taken in the next 5+ years? (Feel free to be as ambitious as possible.)
And playing off of that question, I've always been curious what solo projects from you each would be like. IF you ever decided to take a break from one another or pass the reins of Mythical onto some new duo for a period of time, what could you see yourselves doing on your own/separately?

Thank you!
Keep up the great work, and thank you for being your mythical best.

Kristi Beaudoin on May 17, 2021 at 2:24 am

Link- How did you find Jasper AKA long legged Peanut butter Jade. 💕🐾💕

Erin Fields on May 17, 2021 at 2:03 am

what is your favorite form of daily exercise now you're over 40?

Angela Willison on May 16, 2021 at 6:16 pm

Hi y'all from Kentucky!! Doritos Locos Taco best thing on Taco Bell menu....change my mind... :)

Alison Korte on May 16, 2021 at 5:46 pm

From one parent to two others, I’d love to hear how y’all feel about the teenage sassiness.

Camille Smith on May 16, 2021 at 5:17 pm

i’m not sure if this was a thing back in the 90s, but now, it’s a really big deal to take a senior trip, either during the spring break of your senior year or after high school graduation. did you take a special graduation trip? will you take your kids on one when they graduate?

Matthew Gable on May 16, 2021 at 3:32 pm

Rhett and Link, will you ever do a small documentary or walk through of your college years? I really enjoyed watching your mini series of your lives in Buis Creek.

Louise Krogh Kni on May 16, 2021 at 11:38 am

hi Rhett are you going to see the new saw movie named Spiral: From the Book of Saw. and have you seen the other saw movies. I have and I think they are good.

Casey Cline on May 16, 2021 at 9:30 am

What is an interesting story a grandparent would tell when you were growing up?

CHRISTOPHER LONG on May 16, 2021 at 9:17 am

With everything that you all eat... how do you stay fit?

Erica Darnell on May 16, 2021 at 5:16 am

For either or both of you: What do y’all like to do on the weekends? 🤩 I’ve got a huge tendency toward routine (even on the weekends, it seems). Do you still keep with routines on the weekend or do you like to shake things up with an “adventure” as much as you’re able? If so,...what adventures are keeping things interesting for you right now? 🖤

Mariah sherwood on May 15, 2021 at 6:56 pm

So I have question which would be better flying from Knoxville,TN or to LA or driving to LA with a friend

Lori Elliot on May 16, 2021 at 1:55 am

Rhett - when are you gonna show us our back stretche routine .. would love to add it to my morning

Lori Elliot on May 16, 2021 at 1:53 am

link - I want to make a Lionel Richie playlist on Spotify and I was wondering what you felt were some of the essentials.

Callie Steele on May 16, 2021 at 1:13 am

Do you guys plan to do any more collaborations with Smosh once restrictions are lifted?

Xavier Garza on May 15, 2021 at 2:49 pm

Loyal ear biscuiteer here, and I'm just curious as to when we can expect the long awaited enneagram episode?

Erica Darnell on May 15, 2021 at 2:38 pm

I can tell that a ton of us are really anticipating the Ronstadt podcast. I’m looking forward to hearing your amazing voice talents. I was also curious, did y’all do any writing for the show, as well? Thanks! 💋🖤

Marina Schlottbom on May 15, 2021 at 2:32 pm

I can't wait to tune in to Ronstadt (btw "Stadt" is the German word for "city", which I found interesting!) after having listened to the trailer! Was a scripted podcast always something you wanted to do and how did the collaboration with QCode go about?

Marina Schlottbom on May 15, 2021 at 2:25 pm

I feel like I've developed a form of agoraphobia during the pandemic, which is something I didn't struggle with pre-Covid times! Have you developed/ discovered any new habits or even anxieties throughout the last year?

Kirsty J on May 15, 2021 at 1:54 pm

If there was one guest alive or dead that you could have on Ear Biscuits who would it be and why?

Wolf on May 15, 2021 at 11:02 am

Hey Link, I’m curious why you apply lotion to the back of your hands? I need to know if I should change the way I apply lotion.

Hümeyra Çaylak on May 15, 2021 at 10:42 am

Hey Rhett, Hey Link. Do you guys remember Shahbaz and Chiasquatch?

Susan Etheridge on May 15, 2021 at 12:00 am

Please don't put my last name.

Have you ever worried when going on camera (when not behind the desk) or performing on stage that you'll get an unwanted erection?

Hailee Leonard on May 14, 2021 at 8:37 pm

Hey Rhett and Link! Have there been any episodes or content that you have put out in the past that you may regret now? <3

Margaret on May 14, 2021 at 8:10 pm

I recently watched Palm Springs per rhetts suggestion on an ear biscuit from last year(I agree it’s a great movie) I was wondering if either of you have seen the Netflix movie “Horse Girl” and what you thought of it if you have. If not what are some newer movies you guys would recommend

Sofia Chiellini on May 14, 2021 at 8:07 pm

Hey guys, hope you're well! Since you guys often share a lot of your personal lives on the internet, is there anything that people may not know about you that you would like the world to know? Maybe any rumors or misconcpetions you've heard about yourselves that you would like to disprove once and for all? Love you guys!!

Amy Scalf on May 14, 2021 at 6:51 pm

Question1: What’s been going on at the creative house?

Comment/Question: I find it interesting that Ronstadt is not a buddy situation. Was that by a choice the two of you made going into the project, or was it written that way before you were involved?

Kristi Beaudoin on May 15, 2021 at 1:30 am

Do you two currently listen to any of the same bands/ music that came out within the past decade? (Absolutely no dis on old music) 🤘

Alastair White on May 14, 2021 at 6:20 pm

How does one get over the fear of death? For both or either of you.

Michael Puckett on May 14, 2021 at 6:20 pm

If you could go surfing anywhere were would it be and why?

Kayse Angel on May 14, 2021 at 7:47 pm

how do you measure success?

Catherine Abel on May 14, 2021 at 12:09 pm

Rhett, have your ear piercings complete closed? Would either of you be willing to re-pierce your ears?

Michelle Beckenhauer on May 14, 2021 at 11:48 am

Link, how wild is that you have an 18 year old child?

Michelle Beckenhauer on May 14, 2021 at 11:46 am

I was rewatching some old GMM's, and I watched an episode where Link was having a cold sore outbreak. He doesn't seem to get them anymore. As a fellow cold-sore sufferer, what's your secret?!

Ali Cortes on May 14, 2021 at 2:14 pm

How do y'all each handle with having serious topic talks or discussions with friends or each other? Any tips or advice you can give in making such talks easier and less nerve wracking.

Rachel Nunn on May 14, 2021 at 6:14 am

How far in advance was Rondstadt recorded? And if you were doing that thru lockdown/covid restrictions what did you do or do differently to get that done? Very much lookibg forward to it!

Brenda Huff on May 13, 2021 at 9:17 pm

To Rhett: How do you feel about your hair? Do you prefer it as long as it is now? Or are you thinking about going to cut it anytime?
To Link: Is that all natural hair color? Haha not hating on the Silver/Grey. Loving the wavy black and silver/grey hair.
Also I totally see Rhett as a lion if he were an animal. If Link were an animal he would probably be an Eagle. Hope you both are having an amazing day so far. -Brenda

Ali Cortes on May 13, 2021 at 8:58 pm

Hey guys, do y'all have any advice for someone trying to find their true selves and doing what makes them happy despite feeling like they can't, because of their restricted environment (i.e. as in similar location/religious setting and family situations)?

Samm Skiles on May 13, 2021 at 10:29 pm

We all know by now that you guys sometimes shoot multiple GMM episodes in a day. My question is if you know you'll be doing a week of shows that involve a lot of eating things, do you shoot those consecutively? Or do you try to break them up and avoid getting full/sick?

I can't imagine eating everything you do in one episode and then immediately doing another!

Emma Bolton on May 13, 2021 at 7:44 pm

What is WoodElf, we know QCODE from the main production of The Edge Of Sleep but is this a new company?? Very excited for RONSTADT

Grace-Anna Davis on May 13, 2021 at 12:24 pm

Can you say how long (or roughly how long) each Ronstadt episode will be? I am super pumped for it!!!

Therese Arnesen on May 13, 2021 at 8:28 am

How did you decide which one of you got to be at the bottom of the centerfold picture on the Lionel album? Something tells me you both wanted that spot 😁

Chantel Sanchez on May 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

Hi Rhett & Link! As people who have been married a long time, is there any "secret" you might have to keep the love for each other alive?

Beverley Smith on May 12, 2021 at 1:06 pm

Link, do you have any plans in the future to do more horseriding and did you genuinely think the horse you rode on your birthday was called Biscuits?

Rachel Black on May 12, 2021 at 1:49 am

What's your feelgood film, one that you could watch over and over again?

Lynne Becker on May 11, 2021 at 7:51 pm

Have you ever thought about rewriting/revising the Graduation Song for your kids now that they are at that age? ASLO: If you were asked to appear at one of your kids' graduations as Rhett & Link, would you do it, or just enjoy the day as the proud father?

Ripley Morgan on May 11, 2021 at 7:06 pm

My mother just lost her executive assistant job of 20+ years to covid related downsizing & is looking into becoming a virtual assistant. She asked for cute name ideas for a site/title/DBA. I've had Totes Remotes, Bluetooth Fairy, Distant Assistant, & Accessory to Planslaughter all shot down. Care to donate any ideas? I believe my already shallow well has run dry. 🤣

Leanne Ayer on May 11, 2021 at 2:14 pm

First, Jack Conte's mini documentary was such a thoughtful and interesting study in R&L and Mythical Entertainment.

Which brings me to my questions: Are you pleased with the final product? Was it strange having a couple of shadows following you around? And finally, seeing clips on the doc of older iterations of GMM, I gotta say that I miss The Mythical Show. Would you ever endeavour to take on a variety show format again?

Rebecca Rivard on May 11, 2021 at 4:50 pm

What was your guys’ version of Wayne’s world poster?? That made an appearance in the live stream.

Rebecca Rivard on May 11, 2021 at 4:48 pm

Is Sokka the alpha over Jade??

Brittany A Cockrum on May 11, 2021 at 9:16 am

Hi guys! What is the best advice you've received recently (if you've gotten any)?

Allison Daugherty on May 11, 2021 at 3:39 pm

Hey y'all! Prompted by how long Link's hair has started to look as of today's episode (5/11) I have to ask Link if you're growing it out now, and if so what sort of length are you going for. It looks great right now!

Mitch Hamer on May 11, 2021 at 8:20 am

Do you plan to do something like ‘the tour of Mythicality’ again, and would you consider doing some dates in the UK/Europe?

Heather Pellegrini on May 11, 2021 at 3:53 am

what is your most favorite recent album that your listening to?

Kishan S/O Jayashanker on May 10, 2021 at 6:57 pm

Why do you think you have such differences in how adventurous you are with food?

Grace Auld on May 11, 2021 at 1:36 am

How have you been doing lately?

Grace Auld on May 11, 2021 at 1:35 am

If 2006 Rhett & Link met you guys today, what would they think? Would they judge you?

Grace Auld on May 11, 2021 at 1:35 am

I’m in my first year of uni/college and I know previously y’all said it was one of the best times of your life but I’m just not feeling it*. How do I make the most of it?

*May be due to the fact the majority of it is online

Laura Johnson on May 10, 2021 at 6:23 pm

If either of you owned a restaurant what would it be called and what would be on the menu?

Ginnette Dejesus on May 10, 2021 at 5:47 pm

When you guys did the Merle record you guys had permission from Merle's son my question is did you guys get any type of permission from lionel or his people to recreate the album and his songs ( since is mostly copyrighted)

Leanne Ayer on May 11, 2021 at 2:03 pm

I was wondering the same thing. Curious to hear an answer.

Ginnette Dejesus on May 11, 2021 at 9:14 pm

I really hope they pick my question to answer

Leanne Ayer on May 11, 2021 at 5:32 pm

I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Courtney Grossl on May 10, 2021 at 5:18 pm

How do you resolve creative differences?

Kelsi Gray on May 10, 2021 at 5:01 pm

Why does Rhett take complaints so personally and get so upset by them? Is constructive criticism ok (eg. your last livestream disaster could have been slightly better by communicating in the 30mins you were meant to already have started what was actually happening) or is it just stupid comments and what would some of those stupid comments/complaints be?

I love you guys so much but I'm burning to know the answer to this. Don't hate me now Rhett lol

Oliver Hooper on May 10, 2021 at 4:37 pm

If you guys had to sum each other up with a cheesy motivational poster, what would you pick?

Tessa Gattullo on May 10, 2021 at 11:33 pm

Rhett and Link, what is your favorite type of episode (i.e. Will it?, games, etc.)?

Oliver Hooper on May 10, 2021 at 4:32 pm

If you could be a fruit, what fruit would you be?

Oliver Hooper on May 10, 2021 at 4:30 pm

I’m having surgery on May 20th (super nervous!). Do you guys have any tips for how to keep myself from going stir-crazy while I’m recovering? Also, do you have any book/movie/podcast recs to pass the time? I won’t be able to do much for at least six weeks :(

Haylie Jesch on May 10, 2021 at 4:05 pm

Rhett, if you had the opportunity to take part in a reality TV show without consequence to any aspect of your life which show would it be? If you could create your own reality TV show what would that entail?

Haylie Jesch on May 10, 2021 at 4:05 pm

Be honest, do you like monster trucks? If you do, what would you call it if you had your own? What would it look like?

Cheri Landers on May 10, 2021 at 3:58 pm

Hi Rhett and Link! Have you been able to meet Lionel Ritchie in person and if so tell us about it. If not, have you had other interactions with him? What other artists would you like to meet in person that you haven’t had an opportunity to?

Katrina Conrad on May 10, 2021 at 3:19 pm

Link, what were your thoughts on the falcon and the winter soldier?

Kristi Beaudoin on May 10, 2021 at 9:56 pm

If you could travel to alternate dimensions what kind of things would you bring back with you? (Other than snacks of course)😉

Kristi Beaudoin on May 10, 2021 at 9:57 pm

Eg. intelligence/information, movies or music

Lauren Ball on May 10, 2021 at 2:35 pm

Hi Rhett and Link! How do you decide what to do after college? I'm about to graduate college in June, and I still have no idea about what to do for jobs. How do you balance what you're passionate about while still trying to be practical about things like housing situations, cars, etc?

Charlotte E Samuels on May 10, 2021 at 2:30 pm

Link, have you and your family played any more board games recently?

Rhett, What kind of games do you play with your family?

Therese Arnesen on May 10, 2021 at 1:55 pm

How did you decide who got to be on the bottom of the Lionel album and who got to be upside down? Rock, paper, scissors?

Therese Arnesen on May 10, 2021 at 1:53 pm

Hey! Have you heard from Bevin lately? Hope he is doing ok!

Jason m Holowacz on May 10, 2021 at 1:44 pm

Both - frozen pudding pop or Push-up?

Abby Friedman on May 10, 2021 at 1:39 pm

If you could fight any cereal mascot, which one would you fight? I think I'd go for either Captain Crunch, since he's a bit older, or the Lucky Charms guy since my height (and weight) would prob work in my favor, LOL

Tabitha Wagner on May 10, 2021 at 1:25 pm

Link and Rhett I’m getting my 2nd dose of the vaccine next week. Any words of encouragement? Just need a little pep talk (you guys helped me finally decide to get it done, thanks)!

Emmelle Perry on May 10, 2021 at 12:40 pm

Link, can you comment on the big, fat spliff you gave your four-eyed Chicken Man drawing? Inquiring minds want to know.

Karen Strother on May 10, 2021 at 3:33 pm

Yup.

Emily Hillsman on May 10, 2021 at 8:29 pm

Yes! yes we do!

Allison Young on May 10, 2021 at 12:26 pm

What’s your favorite way to get in the zone creatively?

Chloe Murphy on May 10, 2021 at 11:57 am

How is Christy doing with her first child about to go to college this year? My mom was a wreck!

Emma Bolton on May 10, 2021 at 6:56 pm

When will there be more information on this collaborative upcoming project??

Natalie Schiavo on May 10, 2021 at 6:53 pm

What did you guys liked the most during the production of Lionel's vinyl? btw, I'm so excited to get mine!

Austin on May 10, 2021 at 11:52 am

Do Rhett and/or Link have any favorite podcasts at the moment (besides Ear Biscuits, A Hot Dog is a Sandwich, etc.)?

Erin Fields on May 10, 2021 at 9:19 pm

second this question! :)

Mary Jo on May 10, 2021 at 11:18 am

Link, what do you have against the punctuation symbol "!?"

I think it expresses to varying emotions in a succinct manner !?
Seriously, I wanted to shout out the great comprehensive documentary 'Why do people watch Rhett and Link !?' by JackConte

Stephanie Cagle on May 10, 2021 at 11:18 am

1. Who in your life is smarter than you?
2. I've only ever heard you say unhappy things about when your babies were babies (tongue in cheek, I know). What's something pleasant you can you say about life with your children when they were tiny?

Julianne Young on May 10, 2021 at 11:17 am

Hello! Do you usually film multiple episodes in a day? How does it work with changing outfits and all that jazz? Also, what about if you guys do a gross episode like smelling bee where you get all covered in guts and other nast?

Luna Evans on May 10, 2021 at 11:05 am

Advice for a struggling twenty something trying to get some distance from a similar religious and family background? What would you have told yourself at my age that you wish someone had told you?

Ali Cortes on May 13, 2021 at 8:45 pm

I can relate to this too and second this question

Riah Crosby on May 10, 2021 at 10:54 am

Hello :D I just recently finished watching Buddy System (I know I'm way behind haha). Do you ever think about doing something similar again? It was so fun to watch, and really inspiring. I appreciate the amount of work that goes into your production, whether it's GMM or other projects! Love ya! BYMB <3

Elizabeth Dunham on May 10, 2021 at 10:51 am

Will we ever see the return of beloved characters like Damnyell & Richard, Rabbit Lightning, etc?

Rebecca Rivard on May 10, 2021 at 5:49 pm

What is your favourite episode of commercial kings?

Brandon Simmons on May 10, 2021 at 5:48 pm

Hey Rhett and Link, what are some of your guys' favorite artists to listen to?

Sheyla Fernandez on May 10, 2021 at 10:47 am

how is sokka?

Steven Wilson on May 10, 2021 at 5:45 pm

Hey guys! How far in advance do you usually record your episodes, and how many do you usually record in one work day?
