I think that the host is trying to keep his cool and not geek out that he is meeting one of his favorite people ever (I also think it helps Fat Mike get comfortable, while still feeling like he's in control to be his usual, wiseass self). I think his show is just about wackyness all over the US, not just "Punk" people.
Me thinks you're the host in question and my intent was not to offend!
This was the first episode of your show I've seen. In all honesty, I'd geek out too. I genuinely enjoyed the content. I guess the nerves came through is all.
