YaJagoff.com entered a boat in the 2015 Three Rivers Regatta “Anything That Floats Race.” The YaJagoff podcast celebrates its 100th episode Feb. 1 at The Foundry on Pittsburgh's North Shore where Chamberlin will be roasted.

You will be a jagoff if you don't listen.

The YaJagoff Podcast will celebrate its 100th episode at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 1 at The Foundry, 381 North Shore Drive on Pittsburgh's North Shore. What started as a blog about jagoffs — a word that has been officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary — has grown with a book, a weekly video series and, six years later, this milestone.

The podcast is like a weekly radio talk show, but on the internet — iTunes, GooglePlay Music, iHeartRadio apps. It features all kinds of cool people and stuff going on in Pittsburgh.

Past interviewees include Jane Lynch, Hines Ward and Billy Gardell. At the celebration, the highlight will be a roast of John Chamberlin with the comic scene's finest, including Day Bracey, Gab Bonesso, Ray Zawodni, Aaron Kleiber and Chamberlin's son, Collin, and Saturday blog team member John Knight.

Food offerings that night include haluska, pierogi lasagna and Primanti-inspired fries with slaw. There will be music from TJ the DJ and games. The $5 drink special is the “Jagoff Maker,” similar to a boilermaker, since it contains Pittsburgh beer and Apple pie Moonshine courtesy of Ole Smokey Distillery.

Tickets are $25.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
