Title: Podcast Suggestions?
Post by: TheMush on February 05, 2009, 01:56:36 AM
Today I scraped the bottom of iTunes and listened to an episode of "Hey, Look Out!"

I'd appreciate any podcast suggestions.

I've recently been enjoying The Monocle Weekly, because I think it's a fraud.  Those people are ridiculous.

WFMU's Anti-Static and Tale of the Twelve.

In Our Time.

If you like the You Look Nice Today podcast, there is a Seattle based show I just found (on Merlin Mann's twittermendation) that is very similar in feel, Too Beautiful To Live (http://www.mynorthwest.com/?nid=140&cmsid=93).

I've only listened to a few episodes, but they seem to do a fairly humorous 3 hour talk show every weeknight, which doesn't seem easy, even if it's obviously no Best Show. Much like YLNT it's wittiness can sometimes edge into smugness, but if that doesn't disgust you, it's worth a listen.

Here are the ones that I listen to :

Fresh Air from NPR
Comedy and Everything Else
Stop Podcasting Yourself
Sound of Young America
Jordan Jesse Go
Seven Second Delay
Best Show ('Natch)
WNYC Radio Lab
All Songs Considered
the Bugle
Bit Parade Show

These aren't all the time great, but they are entertaining to me.

The best week ever daily podcasts can be funny. Hit or miss. But they are worth having around for some of the special ones. For instance, bad movies edited down to two minutes.

I also sometimes listen to "this week in tech". Hodgman was on a few times. It can be really to much nerd, tech talk. But it can also be interesting and keep you up on tech news/cool internet sites to visit.

On the media and radio lab, the best from NPR.

UBC (University of British Columbia) 's radio station, CITR, podcasts the majority of its schedule.

http://www.citr.ca/schedule.php


The music shows are good but of particular interest here probably is Nardwuar's show:

http://playlist.citr.ca/podcasting/xml/nardwuarthehumanserviettepresents.xml

Nardwuar is probably best known for his unique interviews with musicians and other celebrities.   If you are unaware of his particular charms, I'll leave the surprise to you.  More here:  http://www.nardwuar.com/


I'd recommend CBC's The Best of Ideas: http://www.cbc.ca/podcasting/includes/ideas.xml

and also CBC's Wiretap (that CBC does not actually podcast, but is available here

http://feeds.feedburner.com/Wiretap_Unofficial_Podcast )

The "Stuff you should know" podcast by How Stuff Works can be good. The episode from Feb 5th discusses Spoonerisms which have genealogical ties to our very own Spoony.

Is it bad to know that much about someone after one meeting?

Word of Mouth (NHPR)

I second Speaking of Faith and The Moth, too.
Title: Re: Podcast Suggestions?
Post by: roubaix on July 23, 2009, 05:43:43 PM
Yeah, The Moth is really good.

I dabble in a lot of "comedy" podcasts depending on the guest ... Comedy and Everything Else would be so much better without Jimmy Dore's wingnut rants.  He makes so many glib statements I can hardly listen.

For news/current affairs/politics that's genuinely enlightening, I like KCRW's To the Point.
http://www.kcrw.com/news/programs/tp

For sports I've been listening to Dan Patrick
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/danpatrick

And I don't want to get banned for mentioning Adam Carolla, but his interview with Jack in the Box is worth downloading

Post by: sleepytako on July 23, 2009, 11:01:25 PM
Some of my favorites have been mentioned (Savage Love, CBC Ideas, Comedy Death Ray, Doug Benson, The Max Fun stuff..) but some haven't

-Ideas: How to Think About Science: http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/features/science/index.html
It's a finished run but there's like 20 great shows there

-Ask Mr. Biggs!: http://askmrbiggs.com/
If you like AM talk radio you'll get a kick out of this one. It reminds me of being back in the USA listening to the radio on road trips.

-Common Sense and Hardcore History from Dan Carlin: http://www.dancarlin.com/
The history shows might be the best produced podcast out there. I can listen to them again and again. Common Sense is political, but I like his opinions about getting rid of the 2-party system and the failure of the government.

-C-SPAN After Words: http://www.c-span.org/podcasts.aspx
This one can either be great or boring as hell. Sometimes the interviewer is too busy pimping their own books or opinions. The one about "Hunting Eichmann" was great. Gotta be picky with it.

-The April Winchell Show: http://www.aprilwinchell.com/show-archives/
She use to have a show on KFI in LA for a few years around 2001, then she'd do guest spots on the Mr. KABC show till he got his show pulled. It's a collection of ranting about shopping in LA, Fabio spottings, penis stories, calls from LA porn directors, lots of stuff about the gay community in LA, Hollywood gossip... I don't know how to explain it. I loved it when I was listening live 9 years ago and it's even good today. She was one of the best things about weekend hosts on AM radio it was kind of disorganized but fun and goofy and you'll not see a show like her's again.  She'd be a great guest for the new live 7SD shows, BTW (It's not a podcast per-se, but if you use something like the DownThemAll! extension for Firefox you can grab a bunch at one time.)

If anyone here likes videogames, I highly recommend the Giant Bomb and A Life Well Wasted podcasts. A Life Well Wasted is sort of like a videogame-oriented version of This American Life, and Giant Bomb is the other side of the spectrum with four ex-Gamespot staff members who are nerds, but not nerdy-nerds that are unbearable to listen to.

I came close to giving up because of the sheer amount of patience the show demands, but I'm glad I stuck with it (and have the time to do it). I've gotten very used to listening to the show on Fridays at work when there isn't a whole lot to do. It feels like the show's found its footing in the last month or two- the last few episodes have been really good.

I've always found it best when they have a guest. Todd usually makes me laugh but Jimmy seems to be getting less funny by the episode. My wife and I met them in Portland and they were the nicest. They treated us like friends instead of fans so just based on that I still listen but I prefer it when they have a guest. The Patton episode was really great.

Nah, I think Jesse is a truly good guy and a can be really funny, he's just clunky. I'd be perfectly happy if he'd just stop stepping on Jordan's punchlines or trying to top somethings 5 seconds after the moment has passed.

It's still a really great show, and I think it's one of the very few shows that really captures and analyzes what it's like to be a mid-20's dude who is self-aware enough to know how ridiculous it can be to be a mid-20's dude.

You hit the nail on the head with the mid 20's thing. I wasn't trying to hate on Jesse. I love TSOYA and JJGO! I just think that Jordan is a funny guy and JJGO! is one of the few places he can really showcase his humor (I don't watch the Fuel channel). They should start a sketch comedy group.

I think Dore's political commentary would be a little better if he based it in own experiences rather than trying to take down cable TV show windbags.

Also, can't decide if Todd Glass' follow-up rants are annoying or charming. He will admit he doesn't know much about a topic, but then go to town, closing with a "SHUT the F* UP!!!!!" to whoever the offending party might be.

I think you just kinda proved my point. Everybody knows that shit already.

I think Jimmy wants to come off as a Jon Stewart kind of guy, but their show is COMPLETELY DEVOID OF COMEDY when he goes on one of his rants. It just comes down to him reading those patronizing letters and saying "WAKE UP, SHEEPLE!" while Todd tries to defend "that one guy out there listening right now who is saying..."

I don't think either of them have a strong enough grasp of the issues they take on to make it informative, nor do they have a sense of humor about it to make it entertaining.

But when they're fucking around being silly, it's great!

Also Stef-ann-ay has been on fiyah lately. She really came into her own.

I think Jimmy wants to come off as a Jon Stewart kind of guy, but their show is COMPLETELY DEVOID OF COMEDY when he goes on one of his rants. It just comes down to him reading those patronizing letters and saying "WAKE UP, SHEEPLE!" while Todd tries to defend "that one guy out there listening right now who is saying..."

I don't think either of them have a strong enough grasp of the issues they take on to make it informative, nor do they have a sense of humor about it to make it entertaining.

But when they're fucking around being silly, it's great!

Also Stef-ann-ay has been on fiyah lately. She really came into her own.

I agree with most of this but I think Jimmy pulls punches on the funny commentary on C&EE and saves it for Pop and Politics or his radio show. Too many irons in the fire I guess.

It's still a really great show, and I think it's one of the very few shows that really captures and analyzes what it's like to be a mid-20's dude who is self-aware enough to know how ridiculous it can be to be a mid-20's dude.

I think Jordan is that self-aware, yes.  But Jesse, I'm not so certain.

But I think that's why it works.

You mean a guy that dresses like Orville Redenbacher isn't self-aware!?

This made me laugh out loud. At work.

The history shows might be the best produced podcast out there. I can listen to them again and again. Common Sense is political, but I like his opinions about getting rid of the 2-party system and the failure of the government.

Do any of you guys listen to WNYC's Radiolab? People recommended it to me, but can you tell me what the deal is with the host? The only one I've listened to so far is one called "In Defense of Darwin" where the host gets the shit kicked out of him by Richard Dawkins and then edits in smarmy, sarcastic asides to his radio audience. Is this typical? Because if so, this is the worst radio show in the history of broadcast.

I'm with you, todd.  Radiolab fucking sucks.  I listened to many annoying episodes hoping to hear what people liked about it.  Stupid editing, stupid jokes, very little actual "science."

The best science program I've ever head is CBC's Quirks and Quarks, which has a podcast.

more

Librivox is better than most podcasts can hope to be.

I periodically subscribe and unsubscribe to NPR's Shuffle and most emailed stories podcasts, which I hope to be a "Best of NPR."  A lot of drek seeps in, though, especially NPR's profiles of various generically awful musicians.

The BBC's Global News podcast is a good 1/2 hour of information.  Its "NewsPod" is more focused on British news, test match results and that kind of thing.

I wish I liked ESPN's Baseball Today more.  They just focus on baseball from a very insidery perspective that's too much for me.

I've been down on NPR for some time now, I have to say. I think it's on the same downward trajectory that PBS has been on in terms of quality and relevance.

Inexplicably, however -- when I moved here I tried to listen more to WNYC because I thought somehow in this giant market the local NPR shows would be good. Nope, they're totally abysmal. In addition to Radiolab, I submit for your disapproval:

Leonard Lopate
Jonathan Schwartz
Studio 360 (which pains me a lot since the host was a co-founder of Spy magazine)
On the Media

I used to love love love love NPR from like 2002-2005 when I was delivering pizzas (and before I knew about podcasts). But lately I turn it on and get immediately frustrated. Has the quality of shows gone down or am I just older and/or tired of it?

I still enjoy On The Media. Even though they're smarmy, I like that they take stands on issues instead of the dickless pandering that every other political show seems to do.

News and Notes is the absolute WORST though - they will channel anything and I mean ANYTHING through the "people of color" lens. It's infuriating. Not to mention the panel of journalists they have are like high school newspaper kids each taking on a different stock pundit personality. It's total amateur hour.

3.RadioLab - I disagree with most of what I have heard on this thread. I think this show is awesome and I've listened to every episode
4.Shoddy Radio - Pretty vulgar, semi-racist, always interesting and very, very funny at times (also disgusting)

I understand both sides of the radio lab debate.  It can be pretty obnoxious-lame-redundant.  At times though it transcends and can be amazing.  For those wondering why bother i recommend listening to the war of the worlds episode.  Which is pretty great and the one that got me hooked.

I think either Patton or PFT had recommended the Best Show to them a few months ago. I'm not the biggest Jimmy Dore fan (I really like Todd Glass, he's both genuine and really funny) sounds like he got caught in one of those socially awkward moments we all find ourselves in. Although he shouldn't have given Todd such a hard time for wanting to be liked after he pulled the same move with Tom.

I listened to Comedy and Everything Else at the beginning, and probably continued longer than I should have, long past the point where I found it unlistenable. But I listened to this episode to hear the story and just in general to see what it was like now. Imagine my disappointment upon discovering that not only is Jimmy Dore talking about how he believes 9/11 conspiracy theories—which, obviously, a person is perfectly entitled to do, even though I personally find it awful—but he even goes so far as to say that people believing the "official" story of 9/11 is the same kind of thing that let Hitler come to power (and I'm pretty sure I'm not unfairly paraphrasing that).

I just started really getting into Too Beautiful To Live a couple of weeks ago, and of course, it just got canceled due to low ratings.  Tonight's the last night of that radio show.

I would like to know if the new Marc Maron podcast, WTF?, is any good.  I listened to 5 minutes and it didn't grab me.

Patton's on the latest episode.

I was wondering if anyone would be commenting on that. I'm super sad that it's gone, but I was really thrilled that we have the technology now that enabled me to watch the live video stream of the studio for the last show. Worth staying home on a Friday night!

Aside from the Best Show podcasts I'm into: I Love Movies, Comedy and Everything Else, The Adam Carolla Podcast, and Never Not Funny.  Also recently discovered Marc Maron's WTF podcast which is also great.

I like WTF so far. I'm not really familiar with Maron other than a clip or two and his recent appearance on The Sound of Young America. Are his standup albums worth buying?

Maron is of the neurotic style of stand up that Richard Lewis is famous for but with a lot more energy and a much younger, drug induced outlook. I think it's great but it's not for everyone.

Five Tacos And A Taco ain't too bad. I grabbed it on a whim and totally liked it. These guys aren't pros, but they keep the show tight, well paced, and I really laugh out loud in public when listening to it on occasion.

I Love Movies. I don't watch that many movies and I still like this show--If Doug has the right guests. Bad guests and it's bleh. For example, the Tom Arnold episode. That was some of the worst junk ever. Not funny and rather misogynistic. However, the latest episode with Sarah Sliverman and that other guy was great.

Comedy Death Ray. Very, very good. Makes me wish I lived in the US so I could go to the UCB-west.

Comedy and Everything Else has a few funny parts but could be a lot better. I don't mind their political stuff, but I'd rather get it from Dan Carlin. The show is  way too long and disorderly. Listening to it seems to make everything in my life go slower. I end up with a strange sleepy comedy limbo feeling. If that makes sense.

The History of Rome is great. I wish I knew of this before.

CUNY Lecture Series- Lotsa interestic speeches here.
WPRB Princeton's (and the man behind MY Pal God Records, Tom knows who he is and he has called into TBS before) Jon Solomon used to have a great podcast called Local Support, but I don't think it's being updated anymore.
I tried following Planet Money, but couldn't stand the people behind it.

And sometimes I like to use the iTunes univesrity, you can get some intersting lectures from Stanford, Berkeley, etc.
Just now I was also been listening to the "White House Tapes" series from American Public Media, covering JFK, LBJ and Nixon.

That's a good way to describe his stuff.  I'd also compare him a little bit to Bill Hicks.  It's a good mix of topical and personal dirty laundry.  I think it's pretty brilliant, personally. 

If one were to check out his stuff I'd recommend the first two albums before diving into his latest one.

I have already self-promoted in this thread, but I am going to do it again. Because I am an ANARCHIST.

Also, since the last time I self-promoted I have made 1 (one) HI-larious joke about Marijuana Radio AND I have started 1 (one) whole new different podcast, available on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=334506725), via RSS (http://gatheraroundme.libsyn.com/rss), or you can download it from this page (http://gatheraroundme.libsyn.com/) I suppose.

It is called Gather Around Me, and it is about two dudes (myself and poet Ben Pobjie (http://newmatilda.com/tag/ben-pobjie)) taking some time out of their busy schedules to answer life's great mysteries. We're making art here, so please don't bother if you're not interested in exploding your preconceived notions of what a podcast is and what a podcast can be.

Yeah.  Once in a great wile they're funny, like Garfunkel and Oats, but usually it's just a testament to how shitty a genre comedy songs are.  Comedy songs are basically being told the same joke over and over for four minutes.

Post by: Matthew_S on December 21, 2009, 02:15:17 PM
Maybe I'm the oddball here but I gave up on CDR radio a while back.  And it is because of the host Scott Aukerman.  I just don't enjoy him very much*.  I also did not enjoy the comedy songs and would just skip over them, for the most part.

In other podcast rejection news, I also abandoned The 40-Year-Old Boy a few months ago as the near-relentless bleak
+ ferociously angry underpinnings of the 'comedy' were just too much for me.  I'd be shocked if Mike Schmidt were a happier fellow these days, but should I give the show another shot?

Finally, as Colin Marshall (of MaximumFun's Podthoughts) has discussed the Two Twenty/Thirtysomething White Guys/Girls Bullshitting About Culture (TTWGBAC) genre describes many podcasts and I enjoy some of these, but they do almost exclusively feature " white guys".  Can you suggest some featuring women or non-white folk?

* In a similar vein (and perhaps apocryphally here), I don't appreciate David Cross' humor.  I may have even written about this on this board before...

(how does self-promotion = anarchic behaviour?)

I find Scott Aukerman to be kind of a minimal part of the CDR podcast. Maybe I'm just tuning him out. The comedy songs and otherwise are fine. I enjoyed a recent 'worst songs of all time' featuring 'Funky Man' from DeeDee Ramone's hip hop album, but that probably makes me like the 'it's so stupid, it's great' guy. I tend to like the characters on the show, also, so I've stuck with it.

Lately I've started listening to Marc Maron's WTF, which I like, although Marc does kind of teeter on the edge of the black hole of despair at times so it can be rough sledding.

Aziz and Cera - that was their own fault. They wouldn't bring the funny.

That said, man, what's with Scott turning on his own guests sometimes? He shit all over the Jesse Ventura bit from the beginning when it was really good, he just didn't let it build.

I don't know why I'm whining, it's like my favorite podcast. The second Huell appearance where he has a racist meltdown at the end - holy shit. I was doubled over on the subway crying.

Here's mine, though I gotta kill some, because I don't have time for music anymore

WFMU's Night People (some entertaining moments, and it's got to be nice for the station to be able to fill 4 hours, but these guys, honestly, have about 40 good minutes in them a week. They should be a 6:00 or 7:00 1-hour show; definitely on the block)

Yeah, I"ve just about given up on this one too ... has anyone heard Fatty Jubbo's podcast? That's a pretty awesome one.

I gave up on Night People quite awhile ago for this same reason. I like the idea and they seem like good guys, but I couldn't make it through an entire show.

I came close to giving up because of the sheer amount of patience the show demands, but I'm glad I stuck with it (and have the time to do it). I've gotten very used to listening to the show on Fridays at work when there isn't a whole lot to do. It feels like the show's found its footing in the last month or two- the last few episodes have been really good.

I heard the NYE's show last week during my glorious vacation because Tom mentioned that he had called in and I am so hooked right now. I also listened to the Christmas episode where they read an early draft of the script of Gremlins and it was awesome, too. I am going to try and call in tonight because they seem very interesting and I love science.

I like Wire-Tap a lot, thanks for mentioning it.

SuperEgo I can take or leave. for all the praise it gets, it just doesn't do it for me.

I don't know if someone already mentioned it, but the Filmspotting podcast is great for cinefiles. I've been listening for years, and it's just two guys who love film. But it's very well prepared, too. They take their time with the reviews, but they don't waste the listener's time.

I used to listen but I grew tired of it pretty quickly. I like their reviews but the show is just too long for me to listen regularly. I realize it's an actual radio show and needs to be the current length to fill a timeslot, but I'd enjoy it more if they took out the Massacre Theater, listener thank-yous, and upcoming DVDs and just left the reviews and top 5 lists. That would leave a solid 30 or so minutes.

Just discovered AST Radio thanks to this thread.  It doesn't appear to have been updated in a year and a half, but there are plenty of good ones going back to 2006.

Also:

Democracy Now
Avant-Garde All The Time
Marketplace Money
Creative Screenwriting
The Business
The Treatment
The Cherry Blossom Clinic
Best Show Gems, TBS
The Dusty Show
Downtown Soulville
Mudd Up
Evan "Funk" Davies

When I'm going on long trips, I'll sometimes add selected episodes of:

Fresh Air
Leonard Lopate
Studio 360
On The Media

Often depending who the guests are.

So what's a base 2 numerical system look like?  I suppose I could just IMDB it, but I'm enjoying this pleasant derailment, dere.
Title: Re: Podcast Suggestions?
Post by: dave from knoxville on March 02, 2010, 11:41:42 AM
Base 2 is all 1s and 0s, what most people think of as digital. The idea is that the first digit to the left of the decimal represents the number of 2s to the zero power; the second one is 2s to the first power, and so on.

If you start counting starting at 1 in base 2, the count goes like this

1
10
11
100
101
110
111
1000
1001
1010
1011
1100
1101
1110
1111
 and so on. The last number represents "regular" 15, because it's

1*2^3+1*2^2+1*2^1+1*2^0, or 8+4+2+1 = 15

If you wanted to represent 85, it's 64+16+4+1=2^6+2^4+2^2+2^0, and you write it

1010101

Had enough?

Title: Re: Podcast Suggestions?

It just refers to how many fingers you use to count. Computers have 2 and nature has 2.71828....
Title: Re: Podcast Suggestions?
Post by: dave from knoxville on March 03, 2010, 05:21:21 AM
Base 3 uses powers of three, for example

1,2,10,11,12,20,21,22,100,101,102,110,111,112,120,121,122

That last one is equivalent to "regular" 17, since it's 1*3*3+2*3*1+2.

I know about things other than math too. Oh wait

As far as music goes, I love the Fatty Jubbo podcast. I've found some great stuff. I'm a big fan of DJ/Rupture's Mudd UP!.

There is a staggering array of netlabel action out there. I was wondering if anyone has found some decent netlabel podcasts? I found one, it's called Density of Sound. (Full disclosure: He's played some tunes I submitted. Maybe he'll play one of yours.) It's mostly electronic and dubby, but like Rupture, he throws some curveballs. Most of the free CC music out there, just like most of the music out there in general, is just horrible. But some people seem to be able to find good music; not only that, but fit it all into an interesting overall aesthetic vision. http://densityofsound.com/wordpress/

Maybe he'll play some of Glenn Reynold's techno music. http://alicublog.blogspot.com/2010_03_21_archive.html#8685550499069967575

WTF has really grown on me. (There's another thread going on about whether Marc Maron should go on The Best Show. These streams should not cross! PFT was on WTF and it didn't work at all.)

I almost always get something out of RadioLab. They get access to amazing guests; but it's also extremely annoying. It is over-produced, precious and self-important in the This American Life vein. And Jad's smugness and facile observations/conclusions make it ALMOST unbearable. That being said, I've learned some crazy shit--anyone hear the Parasite episode? Wild stuff.

And I keep going back to The Dusty Show! Clay Pigeon has really done some beautiful stuff over the years. I like it best when he interviews homeless people. His election night episode is the stuff of legend.

I agree and disagree with other things said on this thread and everywhere else in the universe!

Just listened to the most recent episode of The Long Shot Podcast.  I enjoyed it, but I suspect I might not enjoy it for long.  I love Eddie Pepitone, though.  Anyone else have thoughts about it?

I really like Eddie Pepitone. He seems like somebody who's been beat down by life but still cares, rather than going all nihilistic like the writers for Family Guy. Also, I enjoy his tweets.

I have listened to a couple episodes and plan to carry on. Since he's got co-hosts, whose full names I can't remember now, that prevents the too much of one guy thing that wears me down with Adam Carolla (that and the racist stuff).

Holy crap, what was the project that Tom said he and Paul were working on in that interview? This has to be related to that.

I like him too - I have his comedy CD somewhere, and I remember it being pretty weird. I don't know how beat down by life he is, since he sort of cultivates a Joey Bagadonuts meathead persona and turns the volume up on his Noo Yawk accent and stuff. He's been a writer on Marc Maron's show, and he's been out there doing the comedy for a while. I guess he didn't get into the top tier in terms of visibility, so in that sense yeah.

Dang, there's some new podcasts out there now ... I should go in and subscribe to more shit.

Listened to the most recent Common Sense with Dan Carlin.  The second half of the show is an interview with Jesse Ventura.  Great conspiracy talk.

Why do we know the middle names of so many of the supposed lone assassins: John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, even Mark David Chapman.  Buy not the middle names of Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Richard Ramírez?

Also how many of the victims of these "lone gunmen were under government surveillance? King, X, Lennon.

A buddy of mine gave me a tape of several of Ventura's conspiracy shows a month or so ago.  I hadn't watched it yet but now I feel compelled to.

I admit I found the Ben Stiller segment pretty yech, even with Ice T, I do think the show is just getting better.  Every now and then I'll just not find  segment funny, like those eastern European ice skaters, more often than not the show comes together seamlessly, like the episode with the stalker and the comic who was a former basketball coach.  That episode was perfect.

That's the only CDR show I just completely gave up on midway through, probably because I just got sex-talk fatigue. I also hope that someday Scott puts some stuff into the comedy music rotation that isn't ironic R&B/rap about awkward romance and/or boning. These are my only complaints about an otherwise excellent show that deserves some sort of Pulitzer for the Cyber Thug episode with Jesse Ventura.

Don't judge, but when they talked about how the guy who plays Oscar the Grouch fit in to their whole social group I kind of lost it.

The ironic R&B about doing people does get kind of old. Also I'm not really on board with the whole 'Weirder Scott' thing, but overall, I am pro-CDR.

The Oscar thing was funny, come to think of it.  And it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they got rid of the music, either.  Even really, really funny people are not able to write funny songs.  It's a flaw of the genre.

I've read a lot of "comedy song" bashing in this thread, so I'm not sure how this will be received here but in the most recent CDR episode (49) Scott played a song called Midnight Party (http://www.shoddyradio.com/index.php?id=73 (http://www.shoddyradio.com/index.php?id=73)) from my podcast called Shoddy Radio. (http://www.shoddyradio.com/ (http://www.shoddyradio.com/)) I just wanted to point out that that song was written live on our show and then recorded right after and attached to the end of the podcast. Anyway the song makes a lot more sense if you hear the episode we wrote it on before you hear the song but I was still THRILLED to hear it being listened to and critiqued by major Hollywood celebrity types. If anyone cares to hear the episode it was written on (it's not our best) it's at http://www.shoddyradio.com/index.php?id=36 (http://www.shoddyradio.com/index.php?id=36) and may I add that even before this I've always really enjoyed the musical interludes on the show.

It's kind of uneven but definitely worth sticking with. The "Patton Oswalt's Sitcom from 1993" episode was memorable.

Here's another podcast that's very different from the rest - http://www.amateurscientist.org/ . It's mostly the author commenting on all sorts of normal and strange topics. It's not a rant, though. The material sounds well prepared and is really absurd and funny. And consistently so! Check it out!

If you're keeping up on the whole Night People/Night Perverts thing, you might be interested to know that Tom called Night People last week (8/5/10). There was some great talk about journalism and writing and, most importantly, how they are going to resolve the "nude model" issue. I do believe the phrase "ultimate WFMU crossover show" was used.

The call starts at around 26:00 on the podcast, but I think he was on the line a couple minutes beforehand, when Dave was leading the audience in some stretches. If you'd like to hear the stretching section (which I found hilarious) you should start from around 21:00.

Oh, and Mr. Scharpling? I would like to present my best friend Rebecca and myself as nominees for the artist's panel. We're both really passionate about art. Namaste.

Yep.

Hah. I'm already laughing due to Tom's use of the word "toidy". It's funny to me that Tom and Jon have these silly childish words that they constantly use, like toidy and fudge.

Yeah, toity has been creeping around a lot lately. It makes me giggle every time.

The Tobolowsky Files might be the best thing going right now.  He's amazing.


He had one where he told stories about David Milch/filming Deadwood. It's hilarious. Milch is one crazy, awesome dude.

And he tells a funny story about Martin Lawrence's crazy bodyguards.

My friends do a pretty entertaining show daily (although right now it's on hiatus they have about 30 shows or so up) called Enjoy Your Day. They talk about all sorts of stuff, and usually play a good song or two. It's really nice when they hit their stride to have a new episode semi-daily.

Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't suggest mine. Hellovision is the show, TV is what we talk.

And Doug Loves Movies is always a blast.

I'm burnt out on the "Talkin' Comedy!" shows lately, I think they've made me dumber
so I'm trying to listen to KRCW's To The Point more regularly

great to have some more suggestions here too  :)

I'm experiencing similar burnout. I am continuing to enjoy 'Comedy Death Ray', though, because in addition to the talking there are the characters (Ice-T, DSALW, Jesse Ventura, Huell Howser, Cyber Thug, etc and so on).

Ninja Tune has a podcast called 'Solid Steel' that I just found out about.

I agree ... CDR has really distinguished itself amongst it's podcast brethren. Aukerman had a good solid idea of what to do with this show right out of the gate.

Bob is so great. I find him so funny, especially when interviewed and the way he just says things off the cuff. He was on an episode of Doug Loves Movies and had a Silence of the Lambs reference, took a shot at Billy Zane, gave a quick review of Casablanca and Titanic...just these off the top of his head throw away jokes, so great. I love David Cross, gotta say Bob is my favorite. I really liked the interview he did with Marc Maron. Thanks to this thread for the heads up on WTF podcast! I like listening to this guy.

It was tons better with Todd, no need to mince words. I wish Jimmy would let Stef talk more often, as I find her the funniest part of the show now. It seems like they just hoist political talk on guests that may or may not have any interest in C-Span minutia.

That Kyle Cease thing went on too long. Everyone knows standup classes are rubbish, and it doesn't really require an expose.

I miss Todd's unrelenting goofiness and focus on making things fun. I don't miss the long sections of the show where he would bow down to Jimmy as the "expert" on world affairs. Jimmy's political observations seem to consist of making cracks about cable news show hosts.

As this is a podcast related thread I shall post this here:

The latest Sound of Young America with Greg Fitzsimmons was kind of annoying. Nothing to do with dear Jesse Thorn who was his usual charming self but rather the interview subject. As a whole he seemed like a perfectly nice guy and I'm not familiar with his stand up so I can't comment on that. But holy hell, every other sentence he mentioned he was Irish. And then after mentioning it a whole lot, he used it as a way to rationalize his behavior. As in, "oh well, I'm Irish so I would totally..." and I think it was something about being violent or aggressive.

It might just be my ire at so many people in my area self-identifying with the whole Irish heritage where they have no place but it really struck me as odd.

I hear all episodes of The Best Show live and it's in the WFMU archives if I did miss one, the podcast isn't really made for me.

I've been listening to Comedy And Everything Else archives and I am going for the finish line and I'm unsubscribing once I'm there. I was somehow more interested. I've maybe gotten exhausted.

I've been digging through the Nerdist podcast archives. So far I really like it. They have pretty good discussions about nerdy things. They also have some really good and interesting guests, notably people from Mad Men. I really enjoy when they get into analyzing comedy as well.

The only dud episode I've found was the one with Allison Scagliotti. She seemed nice and cool but at 19 was trying way too hard to be adult and hip (well, I guess who doesn't at that age). Also, there was a really weird tension that happened when Chris Hardwick was flirting with her hardcore and then she said she was 19 and he got skeeved out and didn't know what to do with himself.

2.Go and get some laughs from your material. I can read amusing headlines on the internet all day and all night. You are supposed to be funny not the story. People who can do it and from whom you could learn: Paul F Tompkins, Patton Oswalt, Tom Scharpling.
3. Stop using your weird slang! You guys sound like Jon from Delocated, yet not funny because it seems like you really talk in this manner.

Any book described as "the Moby-Dick of misanthropy" piques my interest, especially as I am a huge fan of Melville's existential whaling epic. But I'm also considering re-reading "Gravity's Rainbow"... Pynchon is a huge time consumer... Is theroux as taxing?

I need help with my podcast addiction. I listen to lots of podcasts; in fact, I am at critical mass. I listen to so many that I am just on the verge of being unable to stay caught up. Obviously some need to go. Clearly I need to pick up Saturn Scene. Help cow me into getting rid of many of these so that I can go back to listening to records! Watching TV! Mowing the lawn!

Best Show Gems
Best Show
Bitslap
Bored-Again Christian
Bugle
CITR: Nardwuar
Comedy and Everything Else
Comedy Death-Ray
Comedy Films Nerds (this one's a goner; Graham Elwood, one of the hosts, tries so hard to "support" his guests and co-host that he launches this braying giggle at EVERYTHING anybody says; it's not all comedy gold, Graham, and your laugh could kill a squirrel from 100 feet, just like it kills the momentum of your show. He also does not take well to suggestions about how to make his show better; he's called out "critics" offering the mildest sort of "hey you might try this" comment, naming names, and firing what feels like totally earnest "fuck yous". If they're real, he's a horrible person. If they are fake, it's an overdone joke (just like his accents, and "kitten hands".) And then he giggles like an idiot.)
Coverville (about 1 song in 4 is really strong, but there's too many lazy country covers, reggae covers, and the acapella stuff? Get me a gun. But it's hard to quit because every once in a while he tosses off something fantastic. Big demerits for constantly berating his wife's responses to the show's frequent listener-produced trivia segments (Oh, Tina!!!!) And make no mistake, if this guy plays a song, any song, no matter how trivial, when he back announces it, it will be pronounced "very very cool". Even if it's Celine Dion covering Michael Bolton.)
Dave Emory
Doug Loves Movies (I like listening to Doug, and I think he's often very funny, if occasionally a little too dependent on the obvious joke, but I have learned from Comedy Central that I do not like to watch him; that goofy little grin is something I can't see when I am driving down the road, thank God. A face made for radio. It's a good thing I like listening to him, because like Jimmy Pardo, he seems to be on about 6 podcasts a week.)
Dusty Show
Film Vault (Guys affiliated with the Adam Corolla network make short lists of films by weekly categories. Tough call, because while the dominant of the two is a Carolla-like dick, he also knows his stuff, and while he falls over himself trying to get in what must be a mandatory weekly quota of "fuck yous", every once in a while there's an opinion that's pretty well informed. It's probably going, but I would feel like I was missing a good 2-3 minutes of insight per week from the 60-70 minute show.)
Fredericks
Glitter in the Garbage (I was really with this through about 4 episodes, but it's up to 14, and I haven't heard anything new in weeks. Drew Droege seems to have one setting: venal.)
How Did This Get Made (I am really fond of Paul Scheer, but he has a less severe case of Graham Elwood disease. The jokes need oxygen, Paul, and every once in a while, they don't really deserve a full-throttle laugh.)

Shut Up Weirdo (Here you get to find out what The Best Show would be like if Tom gave the callers free reign. The same 7-8 callers are in each week twisting the week's topic to display their own personal obsession. Spike's on here almost weekly, and may be the best guest, and guess what he talks about? Soap operas, getting old, hating yoots. One woman's going to call and talk about her hearse and her obsession with nuns. Her twin sister's going to call and allude to a family problem that she can't go into the details about. The same 2 or 3 guys are going to call offering their unfettered love to Frangry, when it sounds more like they would like to have her chained in their basement. She will flirt with them to a point, then feign mock outrage before hanging up on them. There's almost a Kabuki feel to it, like someone's in the background checking off a list of 30-40 things that must get mentioned every week. Maybe there's a Frangry and Andy Bingo game going on in the background.)

Ugh, I have to say, even just reading about Shut Up Weirdo is squicking me out. I listened to that show once, didn't like it, never went back.

It sounds like you've got a cut list already brewing Dave! My podcast list looks pretty similar to yours except I've got more woo woo yoga stuff on mine. I cut Coverville and never looked back - it was a hard one to cut for the reasons you mention but there's just too much show there to weed through. I sub/unsub from C&EE and CDR depending on what people say around here, like if there's been some good stuff lately I'll go in and sub for a while ... then when I get behind, they get the ax.

I gave up on NPR completely about 4 or 5 years ago I think so I don't listen to any of their podcasts.

Any Song of the Day podcasts, well I love the idea of them but they were filling up my ipod something horrible so I had to let them go. (in fact what I'd love is if anyone wants to give me some mix show ideas so I can still hear new stuff!)

Is Night People even on anymore, or is that you still catching up?

Does that help?
Title: Re: Podcast Suggestions?
Post by: Christina on March 25, 2011, 07:23:02 AM
Forgot to add:

the reason I unsubbed from Doug Loves Movies (even though I like it quite a bit) is that depending on the guest combo, multiple people will often talk at once on that show and it becomes exasperating to listen to. Doug doesn't do a whole lot to keep his guests in line.

I used to listen to C&EE but I can't really stand listening to Dore pontificate about politics at a junior-high level and act as if he's dropping some serious knowledge anymore.

I tried Shut Up Weirdo when it started, didn't like it, and hadn't gone back until a couple of weeks ago, when I caught one of their marathon shows. I thought it might've found its groove in the time since I'd last listened, but it seemed pretty much the same. Frangry does the whole push-pull thing with the drooling guys who call in. Andy seems like a very nice guy, and he might be fine paired with someone else, but this show doesn't work for me at all.

CDR is really guest-dependent for me, and even then I can almost never listen to the whole show. I do find Aukerman very engaging and funny, but I've almost always lost interest by the time they get to whatever game they're playing near the end.

The only NPR podcast I subscribe to is This American Life. The episodes vary a LOT in terms of quality, but the good ones are really amazing.

Do you listen to the Best Show live? I unsubscribed from the podcast since I always listen live and I only rarely listen a second time.

I used to listen live, until I moved to the east coast.  8 to 11 is pushing it, 9 to midnight is impossible for me.  (I wake up at 5.)  It was 6 to 10 in Colorado.  I miss the chat, but at the same time, I miss (other sense of the word) less of what goes on in the show not being distracted by it.

I like News in Slow Spanish and the "Podcast de BBC Mundo" for language skill purposes.  News is good in a language you only understand some of, because you can quickly figure out what they're talking about.  Does anyone know of any similar French resources?  I am taking French classes now since I was in French-speaking areas on three separate occasions last year.

I'm loving Greg Proops' SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD. It doesn't make me laugh very often, but he's an interesting guy with a wide frame of reference, and it's really fun to listen to him go.

WHO CHARTED has really come into it's own. They found a novel way to get around the problem of chart redundancy, and I think it's probably the most consistent show on the Earwolf roster.

HOW DID THIS GET MADE, I really dislike, and I'm not sure why. It just feels so slapdash, like zero effort goes into it. Also, seeing bad movies for ironic enjoyment is something I grew out of around 11th grade. Something about a roomful of adults (comedians, I know, but still...) riffing on OLD DOGS is just depressing to me.

SUPEREGO is still the best pure comedy podcast out there, I think. Nothing else makes me laugh as hard and as often.

Agreed. I love it. He never crosses the line into pretentious windbag, even when he's tossing 50-cent words around at will. He's just an amazing captivating talker.

I enjoy HOW DID THIS GET MADE, but I see your point. I think part of why it comes across as amateurish or slapdash is because of the horrible audio quality of the pre-recorded sounds, specifically the theme song and the AOL "You've got mail" clip, both of which sound like they were recorded with shitty condenser mics from across the room.

Agreed also about SUPEREGO. Pure genius.

If you don't like his standup, you won't like the podcast. It might as well be his act - it's him talking in front of a live audience for an hour plus.

I still subscribe but only listen if it's a guest I really like. I find it's easier to just keep subscribing instead of remebering to check every so often. If it's a guest I don't want to listen to, I just delete it.

I agree with cutting Comedy Film Nerds. I can only take Graham in small doses.

Dave, I see you listen to the Slate Culture Gabfest. Have you listened to Hang Up & Listen, Slate's sports podcast? I think it's pretty good.

And for anyone who hasn't listened to Julie Klausner's How Was Your Week?, it's highly entertaining. Also nice to hear a podcast that isn't just a bunch of dudes.

I don't mind Doug Benson showing up on podcasts, but Kevin Pollak needs to disappear from the face of the earth. The hats, the tired Christopher Walken impression - all of it needs to go.

(Full Disclosure: I don't listen to Kevin Pollak's Chat Show. It could be the funniest, most interesting show in the world. I wouldn't know. All I know is, whenever he shows up anywhere else, he makes himself the center of attention and is horribly unfunny. Just my opinion.)

I've added "The Longshot" recently - Eddie Pepitone and some of his friends. It's a good mix of people. They have a guest each week, but because there are five (!) people including the guest, they have to be really strong to fight to be heard. It's mostly Pepitone being called out on his craziness.

You should drop "On the Media" The host's smarmy audio eye-rolling is too much.

Pollak is not a particularly good interviewer and his attitude towards the guests can charitably be described as "boot-licking sycophantism," but depending on the guest, it can be OK. The PFT episode was good. I was interested to hear the Maron episode, but the show has gone pay-to-play, which means I'll never watch/listen again.

I watched a few minutes of the Billy Bob Thornton episode and he almost immediately reinforced what a gaping asshole of a human being he is.

I apologize to the FOTs. Comedy Death-Ray Radio wasn't my thing. I wouldn't mind a good guest stopping by, (Matthew Sweet and Suzanna Hoffs? Awesome! Two of the best musical guests I've ever heard on a comedy podcast! I would like to have heard songs from "Girlfriend" but I can't complain with their performance of covers) but I never found myself warming up to the delivery of comedy (I don't know, just bad, I laughed a bit but then got tired of them all talking! I wanted to delete the podcast before I had even finished the episode I started), or the unwelcome returning bits (I only heard the returning bits once, and they already made me tired of them).

Am I Right?? is another new podcast in my listening. It's an inviting up-and-comer that I think will appeal to all FOTs. I think you will be entertained.

Maybe I'm going to cut back again, as we all need a perspective of our own thoughts (Two of our own cents rather than 2 bucks, seventy five cents* for the two guys who are in your ears every podcast!) Maybe I like WTF because it's not "the two guys who are in your ears" podcast?

One of the things luckly we have available to us all in podcasts is the ability to comb for old episodes to handpick. And I am thankful for that. Thank you, daveb from oakland, I will check them out.

late pass for me, but Skeptoid is pretty interesting
Quote
Each weekly episode focuses on a single phenomenon — an urban legend, a paranormal claim, alternative therapy, or something just plain stupid — that you've heard of, and that you probably believe in. Skeptoid attempts to expose the folly of belief in non-evidence based phenomena, and more importantly, explains the factual scientific reality.

I would also recommend Andy Daly's appearance on episode 94 as Hot Dog, the man who is desperate to join Sha Na Na. I think it came out in early March. Everyone was on top of their improv game that day. It is very rare that I revisit a podcast but I think I listened to that one three times.

It's also been immortalized as a Best Show Gem so it's hardly a rare and obscure call. It'd be easier to just write off as an unintentional  coincidence had it not been for the fact that it came from someone who's worked with S & W.

Huell and Pat Sajak were staples of my childhood, around age 10-12. They were both local Nashville "news" guys. Huell had a feature called, I think, "Happy Features" or some such. Trivia about Huell some people find hard to believe; he was a Marine.

Pat was a weather guy, but on the weekends they let him produce a show called "PS 4" that seemed to be inspired by Head, or The Trip, or Magical Mystery Tour. I remember that one week he followed Ted Nugent around with a camera.

Legal reasons. CDR the show (etc) was created by BJ Porter and Scott Aukerman. Apparently Porter is no longer in the picture (hasn't been for a long time I think). So I guess they had to. But I really don't like the new name either. (Won't keep me from listening though.)

This show is giving me the feeling I had when I first got hooked on Best Show. I also like how clean of a show it is. They can swear I think but they rarely do. It's funny how the family friendliness of wfmu has established a bar for me. I couldn't listen to that Greg Proops show mainly because he uses the f-bomb so generously.

What does everyone think about the comedy songs that he plays between interviews? I've never liked comedy songs and I can't really understand the frame of mind that someone has to be in to enjoy them. I think Reggie Watts makes funny music when the lyrics aren't trying to be intentionally funny. I just can't stand that same old method for writing comedy songs. Like how the first verse just builds up to a wacky/vulgar chorus that they come back to like 8 times. The songs are the only bad thing about CDR imo.

I think the comedy songs are kind of a mixed bag. I like, say, Weird Al's stuff or Don't Stop or We'll Die, and when Scott plays a song that wasn't necessarily meant to be a comedy song (e.g. Nimoy's 'Ballad of Bilbo Baggins' ....he's only 3 feet tall! he's the bravest little hobbit of them all!'.)

I am glad they killed off 'Jukebox Jury'. Way too many 'white guys sure rap badly' or 'I'm going to say something incredibly offensive and gross because that's hilarious!' songs there.

Thanks guys - that's very nice of you both.

Also - Colin, I know the problem you're talking about and it's something I'm trying to be aware of, because it's a problem on the actual levels in the booth, BUT, I always thought I was the loud one and Jesse was the quieter one... I will pay more attention and hopefully get this balance struck!


Could not agree more.  Am I Right?? is worth many listens.

I am really liking Comedy Death Ray.

What's that?

Bang Bang, you shot him down.

What does everyone think about the comedy songs that he plays between interviews? I've never liked comedy songs and I can't really understand the frame of mind that someone has to be in to enjoy them. I think Reggie Watts makes funny music when the lyrics aren't trying to be intentionally funny. I just can't stand that same old method for writing comedy songs. Like how the first verse just builds up to a wacky/vulgar chorus that they come back to like 8 times. The songs are the only bad thing about CDR imo.

I think the comedy songs are kind of a mixed bag. I like, say, Weird Al's stuff or Don't Stop or We'll Die, and when Scott plays a song that wasn't necessarily meant to be a comedy song (e.g. Nimoy's 'Ballad of Bilbo Baggins' ....he's only 3 feet tall! he's the bravest little hobbit of them all!'.)

I am glad they killed off 'Jukebox Jury'. Way too many 'white guys sure rap badly' or 'I'm going to say something incredibly offensive and gross because that's hilarious!' songs there.

The only time I liked the novelty songs was when they'd play Jukebox Jury and Hott Saucerman would go on and on about how awful the songs were because it was about a singing vagina or about having diarrhea and usually poorly rapped by white guys 'cause, hey, white people rapping, what is this, Blondie, and then play a song by someone incredible funny but that was guilty of exactly the same things.  By the way, is Lonely island supposed to be funny?  I agree that the best songs are the ones that aren't supposed to be funny, like the Joe Pesci rap.

That Joe Pesci rap gave me nightmares. The Buzz Aldrin rap, I think I blacked out while running in the middle of it, but that was cognitive-dissonance inducing, too.

I enjoyed it. I'm glad it's only about 20 minutes long because it could get stale quick, but I liked the first episode.

By the way, not quite related to any one podcast, but I just found out that there really is a show called CAKE BOSS. I always assumed it was just a character Paul F. Tompkins made up from scratch.

I'm sorta unplugged from pop culture references, i thought exactly the same thing! I love PFT's version of Cake Boss. The Comedy Bang Bang episode with him and Andy Richter was very funny.

PFT was brought to earth to star in his own comedy sketch show.

I was vaguely aware that the Cake Boss was a real thing, but I have yet to see or hear the actual show/person ... not sure there's any particular reason to do so.

But my whole life I've always stumbled upon pop-culture touchstones via the backward lens of comedy. I remember reading the Mad Magazine parody of A Clockwork Orange when I was maybe seven years old. The drawn images were freakish and fascinating for the young me, and I probably didn't get a lot of the jokes. But it made an impression. 10+ years later I saw Clockwork Orange for a fancy-schmancy film appreciation class in college, and I was all like "oh yeah, this is that movie from Mad Magazine".

Let's see ... Mad also introduced me to "the Godfather", "Apocalypse Now", and "Jaws". I still haven't gotten around to a proper viewing of "Jaws", believe it or not.

Did you hear the episode where Chris Hardwick talks about pulling a "do you know who I am" to the security guard in the building where they tape the podcast and where Chris films Web Soup? And the other two guys back him up and think what he did was appropriate. Their argument was: a security guard at a television studio should know EVERY SINGLE person who is on the channel.

The interview is about half an hour long and Adam tells a couple of interesting stories that even some long time Carolla fans may not have heard before. I know a lot of folks around here aren't huge fans of the Aceman, so if you fall into that category maybe try another episode like this one (http://www.shoddyradio.com/index.php?id=151).

Yeah, when the guest is good then the episode is good. But if the guest is dull don't look to Hardwick and the other two guys to make it better.

Probably the best two episodes Nerdist has done were the interviews with Rainn Wilson and Billy West. The comedian special they did was also very good.

Eddie Coyle talks about Number 4: Bobby Orr! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqmyekdW2tk&feature=related#)

I listened to Mr. Tobolowsky for a while and enjoyed it but eventually had to dump the show. I find that he reaches very very hard to try and get some thematic and sometimes pretentious messages out of the stories of his life. Plus, he is so obviously still in love with his ex-girlfriend that I get embarrassed for his current wife.

I have a podcasting app suggestion: Instacast for iOS. Previous mobile podcatchers never did the trick, but Instacast has totally replaced iTunes for podcasts for me. It's very well done.

It does all the things I want--automatically downloading episodes, deleting them after they've been played, double speed playback, streaming episodes that are *not* locally cached, double speed playback working even with streaming (which I've never seen before), really good discovery of new podcasts, ability to import your existing podcast subscriptions (for all podcasts that are currently stored on your phone or iPod touch), and so on and so forth.  And it has all of these features without being a cluttery mess.

ps: double speed playback in iOS is really 1.5 speed. I've heard some podcast hosts bitch about people using it for some reason. Talk faster and I won't, podcast hosts of the world. Or step it up to Scharpling level--I never 1.5x the Best Show.

Doubletwist (http://www.doubletwist.com/airsync/) might be an option. It's supposed to be "iTunes for android"- your PC downloads the podcasts and pushes it to your phone (usb or wifi). It will also sync your music, photos, etc.

If you get decent 3G and have a phone with a good battery, Google Listen (http://listen.googlelabs.com/) might work for you (I have neither, so this didn't work too good for me).

You could also try going back to an older version of iTunes (http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.php). How are you syncing your iTunes podcasts to your android now?

I'm on Windows (and an Android mobile) and I hate iTunes, but the only thing iTunes does reasonably well is handling podcasts, so that's what I use it for. But its ever-increasing bloatedness is annoying, and I would really like to uninstall it once and for all.

Doubletwist ([url]http://www.doubletwist.com/airsync/[/url]) might be an option. It's supposed to be "iTunes for android"- your PC downloads the podcasts and pushes it to your phone (usb or wifi). It will also sync your music, photos, etc.

If you get decent 3G and have a phone with a good battery, Google Listen ([url]http://listen.googlelabs.com/[/url]) might work for you (I have neither, so this didn't work too good for me).

You could also try going back to an older version of iTunes ([url]http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.php[/url]). How are you syncing your iTunes podcasts to your android now?


I tried Doubletwist when it was fairly new and not very stable (plus I had an older computer and a shitty phone). Will need to check it out again and see how much better it's gotten.

I listen to podcasts both on my laptop and on my phone. Right now I'm using HTC's sync software to sync my iTunes folder with my phone. It works fairly well but feels like a workaround.

Update: just tried Doubletwist again - and uninstalled it within twenty minutes. Still horribly clunky, even more CPU-hogging than iTunes. Frequently freezes, becomes unresponsive. Interesting idea with the "air sync" - but that's an add-on they charge for.

Back to iTunes for now...

I have a question for you podcast addicts (like I am): do you find yourself listening to podcasts so much that you realize you haven't listened to music in a few days? How do you balance this out?

I quit listening to music, with very few exceptions, about 3 years ago. Keep buying it; hardly ever listen to it.

If you're looking for a PC-based program because you listen to podcasts on your laptop, try "Juice." http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/ (http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/)

It just does podcasts.

One of the reasons iTunes is so good for podcasts is the directory of podcasts in the iTunes store. Juice has its own directory.  If anything is missing from it, podcasts are just delivered through RSS feeds and you can manually add a subscription to anything not in is directory.

Also, foobar 2000, which is a great program if you're on Windows and are not signed up to the Apple digital hub lifestyle (tm), has podcatcher plugins.

I like Instacast because it's easier for the podcasts to just download directly to my iPhone and not worry about keeping things in sync.  They only automatically download over WiFi which my phone is connected to at home and work.

As others have chimed in, I tend to listen to music while working (I can't focus/concentrate if I'm listening to somebody talking) and sometimes while running. I also listen in the car, as music sounds better in the car than thru the crappy earbuds.

Sometimes I just feel a need to listen to certain things. My follow thru is not always so good. Recently I decided I needed to listen to Led Zeppelin, but I gave up when all I could find was an old cassette tape of Led Zeppelin I.

OK, another recommendation that might turn out to be as horrendous as my previous one- Winamp has an android app that will sync with your Winamp library on your PC. I can't vouch for the android app, but I still use Winamp as my main media player on my PC (choose the most minimalistic type of install- I think I have the base audio player plus the media library and global hotkeys components).

Something has always bugged me about Xeni Jardin (the lady who guest hosted TSYA). I have no idea what it is.

I have yet to plug my own podcast on here. But I think our latest episode is one of the best things I've ever taken part of in my comedy dabblings. You don't need to know a thing about basketball to listen to it. We interview Jim Gaffigan -- not the comic, but a Home Depot manager and strident Tea Party member who may or may not hire Boston Celtic Delonte West.

Also, if you go through the archives you can hear an episode featuring Daniel Ralston who was on the last episode with Hatch. He was hilarious on it. He and listener John Haughey (@notgiamatti) tried to play a one-on-one game before the episode. John threw his back out something fierce (and required a bunch of doctor's visits). Dan played a game later on with my co-host Aaron and another friend of ours and got a busted rib.

The other episde we loved was Pau Double, in which we discovered a Pau Gasol impersonator and dissected his website.

I know The Nerdist is not particularly popular in these parts, and I'm not a regular listener myself, but I do have to say that the recent Tom Wilson episode is worth a listen, especially if you're a Back to the Future fan (he played Biff in those movies). He has some great stories about being at the Comedy Store (I never even knew he did stand-up), including an apparently legendary fight with Sam Kinison and the fact that, at one point, his roommates were Andrew Dice Clay and Yakov Smirnoff.

Who Charted? is wonderful. I was only marginally familiar with Howard Kremer, but he's a delightful weirdo. He and Kulap have really great chemistry.

Speaking of Kulap, her recent appearance on The Mental Illness Happy Hour was especially harrowing. I listen to that show occasionally, not because I haven't enjoyed what I've heard, but because the subject matter is often pretty grim and it gets depressing if try to listen in large doses.

Different strokes. I couldn't do Who Charted anymore, after the 5th or 6th time I sat through the chart that was customized for the visiting guest. And for it to be a potentially great source for pop culture jokes, Howard doesn't really seem interested in much of anything that comes up. I'm too old, I suspect.

I love Howard Kremer too. I love how he often picks up on the most incidental things mentioned and turns them into ridiculous questions and situations for the guest. Kulap then laughs in complete perplexion, which is what I am also doing most of the times.

Another podcast that I have been really enjoying these days is Professor Blastoff with comedians Tig Notaro, Kyle Dunnigan and David Huntsberger. I like that it's more laid back and not as loud as some of the other podcasts. It's also different in that they ask questions and try to figure things out (kind of like Night People), even though it's never sincere. Kyle kills it every time he makes a quip or breaks into one of his trademark riddles.

I highly recommend Jason Sims is Calling You. I think we're all familiar with who that Jason may be. But his new podcast is great; conversation between our beloved Alabammy Comet and a stranger (including an episode with webcomics celebrity Kate Beaton!) I genuinely envy his conversation skills. Plus, the key, he's keeping each episode to a lean and mean half hour.

If they're not really nerds, as Fred Stoller easily proved, why don't they just rename The Nerdist "The Affected Deep Voiceover L.A. Boring Zoo Crew?"

Who can hear anything with all those dudes booming over their guests the whole time? What's the point of having a guest if you're just going to talk over them?

When Chris Hardwick does a rare solo show, like the interview with David Tennant, it's so much better (although he still goes into dork-voice way too much) than the with the other two bringing everything to a halt with predictable call-backs or easy pop culture references (I think they do it just to top each other).  I had to listen to the Fred Stoller appearance after hearing him calling out the so-called nerdists on WTF.  Fred was also awesome on Pop My Culture.  I'd love it if he could get on the Best Show.

Thank you for your kind words about "Jason Sims is Calling You", Wind & Iron.

One correction: The lady I speak with in episode 2 isn't Kate Beaton, but another Kate who also lives in Nova Scotia and makes comics: Kate Leth.

You are not the first person to think it was Kate Beaton. It's an unintended consequence of the choice to not mention last names, titles of works or websites (unless they naturally come up in the conversation), as well as having very sparse episode notes/descriptions. Both are an attempt to make this thing less "podcast-y."

Sorry for the confusion. I'm glad you liked it.

I come back to the Nerdist periodically because they often get top notch guests. But man oh man, I share your frustration. In the Bryan Cranston episode they came up with this really sad 'dick grapes' call back/catch phrase that they must have repeated 50 times. Cranston was an absolute saint for playing along.

Thanks for pointing that out. Very weird considering the hyperspecificy of a woman who draws webcomics from Nova Scotia with the name of Kate who has a large Tumblr following.
I've heard Kate Beaton on other interview type shows and even then I swear they sound alike. At any rate, Kate Leth was great to talk to.

Likewise Jason Sims Is Calling You has been fun, but I did spend the entire Kate from Halifax episode wondering why they didn't talk about 'Hark! A Vagrant!'. Later I discovered it was not in fact Kate Beaton (still, that Kate was interesting).

If the idea of a variation on the Maron/WTF formula is appealing, or if you like the idea of WTF but don't care for Maron himself, you might want to check out You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes. It's consciously modeled on WTF, but Holmes has a more earnest and manic energy. And because of Holmes's religious background (I don't know the whole story, but it seems he used to be very religious and now is a bit more skeptical), there's lots of thoughtful discussion of religion by both believers and non-believers. I just started downloading episodes at random based on the guests and I'm on-board so far.

I really wanted to like this show but Mantzoukas drove me nuts by talking loudly over everyone and using the word "literally" in every sentence.  And the only woman on the show can hardly finish a word let alone a sentence.  I listened recently just to hear if anything changed but it seemed the same show it was at the start.  A shame, really.  I love Paul Scheer's take on bad movies.

I also want to like this show (since i enjoy Scheer and Mantzoukas's other work) but find myself frustrated with it much of the time. I think one really easy improvement would be to let Scheer have the floor for the first five minutes of each show to simply give a coherent rundown of the premise, some plot points and highlights, and why it was chosen.  Instead they usually leap down a dozen rabbit holes right away without giving us any place to get our bearings.

I like Paul Scheer and Mantzoukas, but can't fully buy into the HDTGM podcast because of June Diane Raphael.  It seems like 10 times per episode she says
I didn't understand why they did this.  Where did that come from?" and Mantzoukas explains how it had been set up in a previous scene.  In other words, they're constantly connecting the dots for her on plot points that she didn't understand but were very obvious to everyone else.  Ultimately I chalk it up to her trying to hard to find inconsistencies/oddball shit.

I really enjoyed Get Up on This with Jensen Karp for a few weeks, now it's like listening to nails on a chalkboard.  I don't know if it's the guests, or his attitude or just me, but it seems really fratty and annoying to me now.

Hopefully it is not too gauche to plug my podcast in this thread again. For one thing, three years have passed and also it is a different podcast.

Gather Around Me, hosted by newspaperman Ben Pobjie and radiologist Cam Smith, is a non-stop thrill-ride considered examination of the Australian psyche.

You can find out more at our website: http://www.gatheraround.me (http://www.gatheraround.me)

iTunes: http://tinyurl.com/gamtunes (http://tinyurl.com/gamtunes)

Episode 64 is a good jumping off point. Episode 52 is a terrible place to start, but it is very good.

We are also currently podcasting daily to promote our Indiegogo: http://www.indiegogo.com/gatheraroundme (http://www.indiegogo.com/gatheraroundme)

Dan Harmon's "Harmontown"

http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/harmontown/id542228532 (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/harmontown/id542228532)

show tumlr: http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/harmontown (http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/harmontown)

live before a studio* audience, the creator/co-creator of awesome stuff (Channel 101, "Heat Vision & Jack", "Community", etc.) goes on tangents about the writing game, "Inception", his brother, getting fired by the network and such and sundry.  Really funny guy. Banters with "comptroller" sidekick Jeff Davis. In two podcasts so far (he's been doing this for awhile w/o podcasting it) he appears not to have guests on the show so it's not the usual carousel of LA comedians.

*live at Meltdown Comics in LA

Toffee Sunday Smash

Just wanted to mention I found the current iteration of this show.  Host Andy Morton is now involved with "Boo! Teak" at Frome FM.

Quote
Flashing in from the outer reaches of the pop universe comes Boo!Teak a new and bespoke mix of far-out 60s & 70s sounds that don't quite fit in Cast-Off Corner, aren't rock 'n' roll enough for The Bad Detectives Show and aren't out-and-out hippy enough for The Woodstock Generation.

Your host Andy Morten leads you into phosphorescent sub-strata of psychedelia, garage, harmony pop, acid-folk, cult soundtracks and the kind of uncategorisable oddities that continue to elude most radio stations and their listeners to this very day. You have been warned.


Looks like the station has some other interesting shows as well:  http://www.fromefm.co.uk/ (http://www.fromefm.co.uk/)  (click Programmes > Music)

John Darnielle's love of metal is no secret.  He has been writing about it for a long time (years?) at his website : http://www.lastplanetojakarta.com/ (http://www.lastplanetojakarta.com/)

More on topic - I considered posting the list of podcasts I regularly download and then thought twice - many have been mentioned here already, many are so niche as to be of little to no general interest, etc... SO

then I thought about listing podcasts I have enjoyed but have since abandoned but decided that was too negative.

So here are a few recommendations of lesser-known shows nonetheless, some repeated above I'm sure:

The Paul Goebel Show - I imagine soon the # of episodes (>300) will surpass the number of regular listeners but I hope it never stops.   Funny and interesting.

The Peach and Black Podcast - For Prince fans ONLY - A handful of Aussie Prince superfans discuss Prince-related events past and present.   Sure, whole episodes are skippable, every episode is probably at least 30min. too long but when the topic is of interest, it is really great.

Dream Tweet - A silly but fun podcast gameshow (this genre should take off!) featuring LA comedians (generally) quizzed about their popculture knowledge (what else?!) via tweets from celebrities. Short and entertaining.

Stones Throw Podcast - Free great music from a label that is always, at the least, interesting.

The Field Negro Guide to Arts and Culture - Vernon Reid (of Living Color and other guitar work) and W.Kamau Bell (standup now with own show on FX) talk about issues of the day.   I imagine given Kamau's new show, this will pick up new listeners.  They've been releasing episodes for years - start from the beginning.

Thanks for the recommendation! The MaxFun website was very secretive about the identity of the expert witness, so I wouldn't have known it was Darnielle from their description. Loved hearing Hodgman's attempt at the Cookie Monster vocal style.

I've been listening to Stop Podcasting Yourself, and really enjoying it. It's moved into my top-tier of shows, that I listen to immediately. I like it because it's Canadian and so am I, so there is some cultural stuff in there that I don't get from the U.S. podcasts. I also like that it's got a gentle, easygoing atmosphere - it's not as shouty and vulgar as many of the L.A. comedy podcasts often are.

However, I find that often enough, when the hosts are discussing movies or just about anything cultural, they'll often get the details wrong in a way that makes me want to shout corrections into my mp3 player. And this gives me an even greater appreciation for the way Tom trolls his listeners by making these kinds of gaffes intentionally.

I actually spent more time with him because Graham was in such high demand, which is fine with me because - I'LL SAY IT! - I think Dave is the funniest podcast host goin'! And so nice!!!

I agree that Dave is pretty great and if it helps your opinion of him at all he's a fan of The Best Show.

I've been listening to Stop Podcasting Yourself, and really enjoying it. It's moved into my top-tier of shows, that I listen to immediately. I like it because it's Canadian and so am I, so there is some cultural stuff in there that I don't get from the U.S. podcasts. I also like that it's got a gentle, easygoing atmosphere - it's not as shouty and vulgar as many of the L.A. comedy podcasts often are.

However, I find that often enough, when the hosts are discussing movies or just about anything cultural, they'll often get the details wrong in a way that makes me want to shout corrections into my mp3 player. And this gives me an even greater appreciation for the way Tom trolls his listeners by making these kinds of gaffes intentionally.


I was super into that podcast for a while. The slowly dawning realization that Dave seems like an undercover jerk turned me off. By undercover jerk, I mean, he comes off like a nice guy but is just a huge passive aggressive jerk a ton.

A friend told me to listen to The Champs (Neal Brennan, Moshe Kasher, DJ Douggpound). I don't know what I was expecting but so far it's 5 guys talking about the women they've slept with in great detail and a bunch of morning DJ sound effects in the background.

That's interesting. I've only listened to the Chelsea Peretti and Aziz Ansari ones, but I really enjoyed them. I thought it was pretty unique, funny, and I liked the pacing. I must have cherry-picked, though.

Speaking of Chelsea, her show is my pick for best new podcast of the year.

Roderick On The Line (http://www.merlinmann.com/roderick/) has been my absolute favorite for the past few months. It's Merlin Mann from You Look Nice Today and John Roderick from the Long Winters (who was also a guest on the first Four Loko Christmas) talking to each other with a similar pretext to YLNT, which is to say that they're "here to help." John is absurdly wise. Roderickin' (http://www.roderick.in) is a pretty good example of some of his wisdom. There are a few inside jokes like Supertrain and Merlin dinging the bell but they're easy to get the hang of. On this week's episode they mostly talk about how punk rock is bullshit. I love it.

I was a little put off by it at first because it was extremely chaotic but it's slowly become one of my favorites. DJ Dougg Pound, editor of Tim and Eric as well as Portlandia, is the guy in charge of the sound effects. I feel like the way all the hosts and guests interact with them is pretty unique!

The recent episode with Jen Kirkman and someone else was hilarious. Part of the problem is that Todd loves repeating bits and if you're not a fan of the bit in question it can wear on you.

I kinda loved the bit where they would play the Golden Girls theme and Daniel Kino would just make up "facts" about the show.

I have a high tolerance for repeating a bit to death (one of my favorite Twitter accounts is @KattWillFerrell), but the 'hello? hello!?' voice grates on me.

PFT on Comedy Bang Bang: For Christ sake retire the characters!

I had the same thought when I saw the umpteenth return or "Andrew Lloyd Weber" yesterday. It's the SNL syndrome: you find a good hook for a character, and then it's kinda enjoyable for a while, and then you keep on doing it to death, and nothing really new is happening with the character, and yet you keep on doing it.

I'm still listening to CBB but they're starting to lose me a little. If I see that their guest is someone I've never heard of before, I tend to be more excited about it.

I went back to listen to CBB and I only made it through one and a half episodes. One involved the Huell Howser character 'retiring', in his case because he's no longer alive. Then I listened to I think the 200th episode and by the time Andy Daly finally got trotted out to do his character (usually I really like what Andy Daly does) I was so weary of hearing Scott and Jason Mantzoukis (sp?) bantering that I bailed out and cleared up some space on my phone. Sheesh. And I don't particularly wish ill on any of those individuals.

If I may pile on some more, I still think Scott Aukerman is great and I'll usually give CBB a running chance.  I even think his ads are hilarious and fit the tone of the show ("...and I'll see YOU at the MOVIES!").  But when Jeff Garlin, Jason Mantzoukas, and Harris Whittels are guests I hit 'move to trash' no matter who else is there. But it's sad that overall the show is evolving (devolving?) into something routine and show-biz-y. I don't understand the love that Garlin gets out in LA podcast land (and throw in Adam Corolla into the equation as well).

Since this is kind of taking that kind of turn, I have to say I actually never liked the PFTKast. He is a talented standup comedian, but somehow while Julie Klausner and Tom manage to do well with the extended improvised radio monologues, his never really seemed to work, and would get annoying at times. People joke about skipping the first 10 minutes of Maron's show, but I actually like it when he checks in, so I don't have anything against that technique, it's just a question of what you do with it.

Before derailing with my actual question, I'll simply add that while not every bit works in my view,  I generally enjoy PFT's podcast.  For me, it is the last 10 min to skip (the plugs) as opposed to his first 10 min, where his riffs and tangents occasionally strike gold.  Course, I don't even download WTF anymore, except if the guest is of great interest to me and even then, I always skip his first 10 minutes.   I gave up on CBB long long ago because I don't think Aukerman's 'character' on that show is very funny, if at all - this may have been a previous topic of discussion on this board (in this thread?!)

My question:

Can you recommend shows by/for/about/of interest particularly to women?  Julie Klausner's show is a good example, as is Janet Varney's.  Others to recommend? (not that men can't/don't enjoy these shows and not that women aren't into the LA alt-comedy-nerd scene, that seems to dominate the podcast field...)

I haven't listened in a while because constant irony gets to be a drain but Throwing Shade on the MaxFun Network is worth a listen. Two funny people discuss primarily women and gay issues in the news. As I said, I eventually had to stop listening because they get very manic at times with their sarcasm, irony, and improv stuff that gets tiring. But might be worth a shot.

Second, he constantly interrupts the interesting people on his show right in the middle of their genuinely compelling story with some sad, unrelated, well-trodden bit of TV lore trying to pretend he knows anything about how show business works. He's a dumb phony.



Subjective argument.

I think Ken Plume is a genuinely nice, interesting guy- neither dumb nor a phony.  He gets guests off the beaten path like SCTV alum and UK comedy writers and his chats with Tom are great.  I only agree with one thing: he does interrupt his guests in mid sentence way too much, sometimes to the point where I have to shut it off.  It's a damn shame and I've thought about writing to him about it but I didn't wanna nitpick a thing that's free and easy to switch off.  But when he has a special guest like Dave Thomas or Mel Brooks (before Maron got him) he'll step back and let his guest tell his stories.

Before derailing with my actual question, I'll simply add that while not every bit works in my view,  I generally enjoy PFT's podcast.  For me, it is the last 10 min to skip (the plugs) as opposed to his first 10 min, where his riffs and tangents occasionally strike gold.  Course, I don't even download WTF anymore, except if the guest is of great interest to me and even then, I always skip his first 10 minutes.   I gave up on CBB long long ago because I don't think Aukerman's 'character' on that show is very funny, if at all - this may have been a previous topic of discussion on this board (in this thread?!)

My question:

Can you recommend shows by/for/about/of interest particularly to women?  Julie Klausner's show is a good example, as is Janet Varney's.  Others to recommend? (not that men can't/don't enjoy these shows and not that women aren't into the LA alt-comedy-nerd scene, that seems to dominate the podcast field...)

I like what I've heard of Garlin's show. I've never seen him do standup, so my only real exposure to him is through his appearances on TV and in movies. I can't say I find him hilarious on any of those, but he's had really good interview subjects on the show thus far and my favorite thing about it is that he has such a huge, out-of-control laugh that whenever he cracks up, I find myself laughing at him laughing.

Okay some recent discoveries I can recommend,

Movie Geeks United - Finally a movie related podcast that doesn't annoy me. I highly recommend there Kurbrick Series episodes, that's where I started.  Skip the uncut Kubrick episodes til after you ever heard the numbered ones.  Surprisingly they never ask for donations or mention sponsors, which is really odd to me.  Limitless episodes if you enjoy this one.

Theory of Everything - If you enjoyed Too Much Information and wish Benjamin Walker would go back to the story format, here you go.  Four episodes up so far.  He kind of reminds me of Joe Frank at times and sometimes Ira Glass.  He is his own unique voice to be sure.

I just listened to the Zach G. episode, and the thing I'm most struck by is the dissonance between the cool, jazzy production and the actual show, which features Garlin bellowing and braying at the top of his lungs. (And in that one, at least, blowing smoke up ZG's ass nonstop.)

My favorite moments on the Garlin podcast:

1.  When he and Michael Moore talk about their favorite movies of the year, and they're talking up Hugo and Midnight in Paris.

2.  When Mitch Hurwitz jokes about their conversation being released as a podcast, and Garlin assuring him the one thing it won't be is a podcast.

But it doesn't.

I had to stop listening this morning walking into work as I was doing too many of those 'out loud laughs' you so often read about these days.  I'm sure they'll have been mentioned before but thanks to the wonders of the intornets you can start at epsiode 1 and work your way through.

I like CBB, but the general trend of doing sequels to popular episodes is wearing on me. These shows are mostly improvised and the thing about improv is that lightning doesn't strike twice and getting the same people playing the same characters is no guarantee that it will lead to greatness twice. Continuity isn't necessary for this kind of show. And a few months off would do PFT some good. He overexposes himself. I get excited when I see Andy Daly is on, but when PFT is on it's just... again? which I don't think is good for anyone.

I've been really enjoying The Fogelnest Files lately.  Ep. 36 w/Andy Kindler and Gary tha Squirrel and Ep. 28 w/Rodney Ascher brought me to the show. Based on his Best Show appearances I thought he'd be too talkative like a Pete Holmes or a Jeff Garlin but he's actually engaging with his guests and sounds like a really nice and cool guy.  And a great curator of old pop culture detritus on the youtube.  My favorite episode is #20 w/Rachel Lichtman with talk of the "Sprout of a New Generation" fan art of Paul McCartney from "The Compleat Beatles".  I've listened to them all except for the one with Eddie Pepitone in a span of 2 weeks.

Available from all the usual sources.

I agree with the comments above about WTF.  I like the show but it's been relagated to 'emergency use only'.  The constant podcast-go-round parade is a bit tiresome after a while and is starting to resemble the Saturday Night Chat Show circuit.  'Who's got something to plug' rather than 'who's interesting.'

Here are some Philly-based podcasts that, uhm, me or altar egos of mine have recently been guests on.

http://olio.fm/2013/07/10/youareamericausa-2/ (http://olio.fm/2013/07/10/youareamericausa-2/)

This is called "Your Are America, USA" and is a spoof of This American Life. My good buddy Alex Gross put this together. I played Templeton Braddock, the self-proclaimed "New Voice of America" and aspiring Moth contestant. I really, really, really hate competitive storytelling and the whole fraud that is that scene. This was so much fun!

http://sliceradio.com.au/category/liberation/ (http://sliceradio.com.au/category/liberation/)

I was the first guest on Liberation, which is a Philly-based non-competitive storytelling show. I wrote a piece pretending to be an emo NSA data analyst who uses his clearances to see what his high school girlfriend is up to these days. They interview me (not in character) and my story's also included. This was a blast! It's also part of the whole radio thing Dan From Orange has put together.

And yes, this is shameless.

Thanks for the Chelsea Peretti recommendation, I'm loving it so far. I like that she just lets herself go nuts on mic and isn't (seemingly) one of those comedians obsessed with pleasing people.

But also if someone said "I hate that annoying podcast," I would totally get where they were coming from, too.

The most recent of Stop Podcasting Yourself is worth a listen. The two hosts and the guest (indie pro wrestler Colt Cabana) discuss a shooting that they were involved in, which occurred after a comedy show they were all at. They also talk about wrestling a lot.

I agree with the comments above about WTF.  I like the show but it's been relagated to 'emergency use only'.  The constant podcast-go-round parade is a bit tiresome after a while and is starting to resemble the Saturday Night Chat Show circuit.  'Who's got something to plug' rather than 'who's interesting.'

Agreed, though I'll listen if the guest is someone I like. I started checking out once it became a lot more heavy on musicians, and I think it's impossible to keep up with 2 episodes a week if you have other stuff you want to listen to as well.

I see it hasn't been mentioned much on here, except for a few negative comments in 2010, but I really enjoy Uhh Yeah Dude.

I also find Pete Holmes irritating. He's not really what I would call a "funny person", at least not a developed or natural one, he's just loud and makes puns. And any success he's had beyond his comedic abilities, I suspect, can be attributed to his charming Buck Owens-esque appearance.

The latest episode of Call Chelsea Peretti, with guest Richard Marx, is good.

I don't find Pete Holmes funny, per se, but I do kind of like how desperate he seems. There's something almost Rob Schneider-esque about his pathetic desire to entertain AT ANY COST. But the fact that he got his own tv show is utterly baffling.

I'll take him over Jeff Garlin on DLM any day.

PFT on Comedy Bang Bang: For Christ sake retire the characters!


PFT on Cee Bee Bee for TWO SHOWS IN A ROW this week. Come on, guys. Give some other Los Angelenos a chance.

I like PFT when he's placed into unfamiliar contexts. The Tompkast suffers from a lack of mitigating outsider input. And, not to belabor the point, he's getting a bit overfamiliar on CBB.

Conversely, the springtime run of "Werner Herzog" on the "Doug Loves Movies" podcast was utterly glorious.

By the same token, I was excited to see Andy Daly appearing on two CBB episodes in a row because he isn't on twice a month.  I think I'd actually like it if PFT appeared as himself and dealth with someone else playing a character. I don't wanna be sick of him, but he leaves me no choice.

PFT made mention of it on the latest Doug Loves Movies as well - and Doug just seemed bewildered by how it all turned out.

On a side note, PFT has been on Doug Loves Movies so many times this year, it's crazy. He's giving his twice monthly visits to Comedy Bang Bang a run for the money. That said, this latest Doug Loves Movies episode was pretty fun because it included the always great PFT/Gillian Jacobs pairing.

Does anybody else think Melvyn Bragg is getting really loose? I like it.
Yes.

New In Our Time's starting Sept. 19th.  I do enjoy the shows on physics and mathematics when Melvyn's trying to wrap his brain around that shit.  And I make an exception about external noise bleeding into the mics- like the sound of tea cups and saucers. As long as no one is munching on cookies (UK: "biscuits").

The Todd Barry Show has found a spot in my regular rotation of podcasts on my shuffle.  It reminds me of the early days of WTF.  He makes great conversation with people I've never heard of before and with people I'd never thought I'd like, like Colin Quinn, although I haven't listened to the one with jabberjaw Judah Friedlander the Hat Comedian yet. 

I even like the street noise out the window and the hum of his A/C and fridge. It's NYC in the summer, man!

I loved the recent Horatio Sanz, etc., episode. I think part of the reason for a possible dip in the past month are the two live episodes from the Del Close Marathon. There were so many people involved and many unknowns. I still love the show though. The only part I don't like is when they have the 1 on 1 debates with a listener. I prefer the 4-5 person improvs.

If you find Nerdist or Bang Bang enjoyable then this may not be the podcast for you.  Wait how would I know that?  I just wanted to slam those two podcasts.  I find them the opposite of entertaining.  A lot of people really enjoy them so what do I know.  I did like Chris Hardwick's book.  He taught me how to organize my email which was getting out of control

I just cringed a little bit when you lumped Comedy Bang Bang and Nerdist in with each other. I love the former, and the latter, meh. The two are so different from one another. Comedy Bang Bang has some of the best podcast comedy out there IMHO. The Nerdist has some good "gets" as far as interviews go, but it is difficult to listen to Chris Hardwick fawning over every guest that comes in.

I like the Todd Barry podcast, but you have to like his subdued approach, because he approaches his podcast as he does his standup, very laid back. But I like it, esp. how he gets into the minutiae of life on the road. "What hotel did you stay at?"

I had to check out of Comedy Bang Bang (right around when it started being called that).  There are some great moments, but for the most part I don't really enjoy podcasts that consist of a gang of pals riffing.  That said, the CBB TV show I enjoyed quite a lot.  I like the model of "improvise and goof around to create good bits and then polish them later."  I just don't need to watch the earlier, rough cuts.  It can be enjoyable but there are too many other things to listen to.

To each his own, though I would argue that it's not just comedy pals riffing, but also some of the best improv & character work around, along with the occasional muscial guest. I like the spontaneous nature of it and I love it when comedians break when they are trying to do bits. Much like Best Show, I like that is not just a typicial interview show. I agree, the TV show is much different. The interview portion is improvised & they cut together the best parts, while the rest of the show is scripted.

Ah ha maybe that's why I don't listen.  I'd much rather hear Tom Rhodes interview Arj Barker at Denny's in Florida.  It was nice hearing Arj talk about his career and their shared experiences.  People working hard to entertain me has the opposite effect.  Although I do like when Wurster calls Tom.

At some point I'm sure I'll grow tired of comedians talking about comedy but right now it's still the sweet spot.  I'd like to go back and listen to the first season or two of WTF. Marc's show is enjoyable although you do have to skip the first ten minutes or so.

Patton and Posehn as guests on "Walking The Room" is a right good listen. Speaking of "Room," hearing Dave Anthony explain the Greg why they had a falling out was cringe worthy entertainment.  I'd like to listen to that again but don't remember what episode it was

I love Walking the Room. Talk about two naturally funny guys. Patton makes any podcast better.

When it comes to straight-up interview shows, I like WTF & Todd Barry. Marc Maron is a great interviewer, and I like how he has to fina commonality with the interviewee to really get in a groove; it makes it more personal.

Agreed. To me, Comedy Bang Bang is the only comedy show period that brings the same enjoyment as The Best Show these days. At least for me, those two are in a league of their own.

I don't think saying that one thing is in the same league as another is the same is saying one is better than the other.

I think they are definitely in the same league as a couple of the best podcasts out there to listen to.

It's not an afront to Best Show to like something else too.

I think it is high times when two great podcasts can coexist, and Tom & Jon can both guest on CBB, and Tom can have CBB regulars like PFT & Jon Daly on his show.

I don't think saying that one thing is in the same league as another is the same is saying one is better than the other.

I think they are definitely in the same league as a couple of the best podcasts out there to listen to.

It's not an afront to Best Show to like something else too.

I think it is high times when two great podcasts can coexist, and Tom & Jon can both guest on CBB, and Tom can have CBB regulars like PFT & Jon Daly on his show.

I couldn't have said it better myself (and didn't).

Feel free to report me to Officer Harrups though. :)

I'll give Comedy Bang Bang another go.  Scott's a good dude and I'm impressed with guests he has on, a who's who of today's top comedians. The problem for me is I don't like listening to characters I'd much rather hear the real person. Well there's plenty of that out there on other podcasts so I'm covered.  I was reading this thread from a couple years ago it seems Nerdist is not a favorite

One of my favorite podcasts of comedians just being comedians is Doug Loves Movies. He usually has a good panel and it is a laid-back atmosphere for them to be funny with just enough direction via the games for it not to be aimless. Plus all of them are live, so they always have an audience to play off of. Full disclosure: once in awhile, someone (i.e., Paul F. Tompkins) plays a character.

The latest episode of Improv4Humans is pretty fantastic. I mentioned earlier in the thread that I thought the quality had really dipped in recent months, but this latest episode from Bumbershoot may have been the funniest episode in the show's history. Besser, Brian Huskey, Tim Meadows and Horatio Sanz were really firing on all cylinders and turned being heckled by a bigoted audience member into gold.

And, yes, Paul F. Tompkins was on Doug Loves Movies AGAIN this week.

Lately I have listened to a bunch of episodes of the Flop House. It's more or less another entry in the "three guys riffing" category, but I like how nerdy it is. The hosts are kind of eggheads, who have actually read some books, and that makes for a refreshing contrast from the L.A. podcast crew. They go really deep with obscure movie and Marvel comics references, which is OK by me.

I have also listened to a lot of Bill Burr's podcast. I like him a lot, and the podcast is often very funny. But man, is it unproduced. And too much sports talk! The reads that he does for his promo spots are so bad, I almost can't believe that his sponsors put up with it. Same with Doug Benson: it sounds like he records his in a rental car (and he probably does).

I have to agree on Bill Burr. As a comedian, I think he's fantastic, at the top of his game. The podcast has some great moments (specific examples coming to mind: a lot of irreverent stuff inspired by a Catholic background Burr and I share and a story about some guy freaking out on a plane to Indianapolis b/c Burr wasn't interested in talking to him) but I kind of tune out with the sports talk since it's not something I'm particularly knowledgable about.

And yeah, very underproduced. I think I may check out the Dollar Shave Club, though...

Some of Doug Benson's Doug Loves Movies podcasts ARE recorded in a rental car and they are titled appropriately "Rental Car XVII," etc. I skip those.

The ones that he does in theaters with a celebrity panel can be pretty funny, esp. if the panel is good. (I think Tom did at least one.) However once in a blue moon, Doug is a little too inebriated/high, and then the show suffers.

Doug recently decided to separate out the "mini-eps" into a different podcast feed, so that would weed out the rental car stuff. I agree that the theater shows and the UCB shows are usually a good bet ... except when he has on some of his obnoxious yelly buddies (Jeff Garlin, TJ Miller, Graham Elwood, and, worst of all, Pete Holmes).

Recently, there was a strange trainwreck DLM show where Harry Dean Stanton was the guest of honor. Harry Dean is 87 years old and can't remember a lot of the movies he's made. On Doug's show, the rest of the panel tried to explain twitter to HDS. I can't say I really "recommend" that episode ... but it's a curiosity, let's say.

There was a long-running show on CBC Radio called Finkleman's 45s that I used to love. Danny Finkleman would play oldies on vinyl, and then tell stories (mostly complaints) about things that had happened to him. In a lot of ways it was like the Best Show. It was cancelled years ago because the CBC is determined to exterminate anything that has character.

BUT! Danny Finkleman has started an online show. Not a podcast - it's only available as a streaming show, because of music rights, I assume. Worth a listen for people who like to listen to cranky men spin yarns between spinning records.

As of now, I think the HDS episode is the last Doug Loves Movies I listened to.  I don't know if I'll pick it up again.  I listened to 3 or 4 in an extended jag one day when I had to paint a bunch of floors in a shitty old building, which is the perfect scenario for listening to that show.  I think the show is at its worst when there's a young indie director on who's trying really hard to be cool and funny.  Or when Harry Dean Stanton is on.

Let me backtrack a bit, he's a very good tv comedy writer but I hate his man-child voice and his overall demeanor when he's on the LA Podcast circuit.  Like a misbehaving cat, I wish he were sprayed with water every time he stepped on Tom trying to articulate a juicy deconstruction of the awfulness of fish.

This was an entertaining listen. It would be so much better if there were a version that had the actual music cut out of it. Tom talking about "Miles Davis and Special Sauce" and how the Phish fans were tarnishing the Knicks banners in Madison Square Garden was great.

Can anyone help with this one?  On one episode of Improv4Humans Matt Besser talks about one of his guest's podcasts.

He said it was something like 'Educating X' where X is the name of someone.  I got the feeling it was like where you're trying to explain every day stuff to someone who's had their memory wiped.

It sounded funnier that it does how I've writ it.

For those of you who like being 'in at the start' then popular Irish comedian Sean Hughes has started podcasting (we all do at some point).  It's called Off the Radar and I thoroughly endorse it.

I'm torn about Judge John Hodgman. Hodgman is always great, but the guests/complainants are usually incredibly obnoxious, precious and self-satisfied. Maybe it's the Maximum Fun demo? Or maybe it's just people in general - Best Show callers could be like that too, often enough. The recent episode 'Namer vs. Namer' is a great example of this. The couple have a ridiculous non-conflict that could be settled by common sense, but the husband (yes, usually the husband is the culprit) has some idiotic 'wacky' ideas that he's trying to force on his wife.

BUT despite that, Hodgman is funny, wise and humane. No matter how petty or twee the case is, Hodgman always finds a way to deliver a thoughtful and perceptive ruling. But boy, it can be a bit of a slog to get to the good stuff.

Conversations with Matt Dwyer (comedian doing interviews- but wait! He doesn't usually interview comedians!)
The Todd Glass Show (this one took me a while to appreciate, but I'm on board now)
Modern Day Philosophers with Danny Lobell (I don't know much about philosophy, like at all really, but even I cringe sometimes at the misinterpretations and weird jumps in logic in this show, but it's still very entertaining as long as you're not looking to learn anything)

Unfortunately, after that Koenig seemed to run out of new info., and it went from a "whodunnit" to a "justice is fascinating in general, amiright people?!" kind of thing.

Don't mean to be that guy... But on my podcast last night I interviewed Tom about the revival of the Best SHow, as well as talking Football and Basketball. It is usually a football show. Hope you guys get a chance to listen, was great to have a chance to talk to Tom and spend a little time to learn more about the show!

Movie fans...

I've been listening to http://youmustrememberthispodcast.com/ (http://youmustrememberthispodcast.com/) -
The secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood's first century.

She tells an interesting tale very well.  If you have to listen to one episode, make it "Frank Sinatra in Outer Space"
Quote
a 40 minute song cycle about life, love, death and visiting outer space (“The Future”). We’ll take a look at how and why “The Future” was made, and theorize as to why it’s fallen into the dustbin of pop cultural history. 



Her blog is interesting too, nice photos and makes you wanna read her source materials.

Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men

http://www.rachelandmiles.com/xmen/ (http://www.rachelandmiles.com/xmen/)

As a grown-up who has recently come back to comic books, this podcast is absolute joy. Rachel and Miles start from the beginning in 1963 and read forward through all of X-Men history. It's all delivered in a hyper-specific, irreverent, and critical style that totally fits in between episodes of The Best Show, How Was Your Week, and Judge John Hodgman. It also avoids so many of nerd/geek podcast tropes that drive me crazy.

Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men


I can't second this enough. If you ever had even a passing interest in the X-Men, but never knew where to start, this one is right up your street. They recently did an episode about my favorite mutant, Legion, and it was everything I could have ever wanted.

I'll also toss out Spektromodule, which is Warren Ellis' semi-regular ambient music podcast. DECOMPRESSED by Kieron Gillen, where he interviews comic creators about a specific work that they have done. FOT Matt Fraction is on two episodes discussing the Marvel Method of scripting and an issue of his highly underrated Defenders run. This one his also semi-regular, but has at least a dozen episodes to pour over for a bit.

The Canon is also really great. It is Devin Faraci from Badass Digest and Amy Nicholson from the LA Weekly and they discuss certain movies and if they should be included in the Canon of films. Much like On Cinema. Also, just in keeping with the movie theme, I really, really love The Badass Digest Podcast (aka the Badass Digest Padcast Podcast), which is basically the Best Show of movies. Evan Saathoff and Phil Noble, Jr, two writers for Badass Digest, talk about a major release of the week and then go on tangents about other movies that they happened to watch during the week. Sometimes they have running themes, like last month was Dad Movies, which included the Taken movies, A Walk Among the Tombstones, and the remake of the Equalizer.

oh man thanks for the recommendation on this one! I was a huge X Men fan when I was a kid but I've always been inconsistent with my comics reading over the years so this was an idea that really appealed to me. I downloaded a few last night and ended up burning through like 5 episodes in a row, I'm loving this!

my only minor issue would be that Miles needs to slow down, sometimes it sounds like he's talking at double speed. but I've only listened to early episodes maybe it's just inexperience being on mic. It doesn't really bother me just something I noticed hopefully he'll relax into it a bit

I'm a big fan of The Dollop, hosted by Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds. Each episode covers a story from American history, and they tends towards crazy & bizarre stories. The format is fun because Anthony narrates the story and Reynolds is hearing it for the first time, so you get to hear his genuine reaction to some spectacularly weird and crazy things. One of the recent episodes is about some of the crazy things that Philly sports fans have done over the years. I'm sure Roy would be a fan.

this may be old news to some of you (and Best Show was on the list of 'Listeners Also Subscribed To') but I did a search on the board here for the title and nothing came up. So:

Its called 'Spontaneanation with Paul F Tompkins'. It says its completely improvised long-form comedy with Paul and guests.

Haven't listened yet, but it sounds like a real treat. Have been hoping PFT would start something new  since the Pod F Tompkast became defunct. YAY!

the first episode was really funny, the second was not as good in my opinion, it's an interesting idea if a bit over stuffed. He's trying to do like 4 different things  but I think if it finds the right balance it'll be really funny. He still does the monologues at the beginning, like the Pod F Tompkast which are amazing, he could drop the interview segment entirely and I think the show would be better for it and the improv part will be great if he keeps having the type guests he's had so far and if he reigns in some of his scene hogging tendencies. all in all, a good listen.

If you're not familiar with Stanhope's bleak and disturbing frank language about life and death ala "Beer Hall Putsch" and free-running vulgarities you may not last long, but believe me, these two episodes document awful true-life events surrounding his life as they are happening and I promise it will blow your mind.

I love the territory his podcast covers- pre 80s movies and tv and old forgotten comedians.  A good show to get yr raconteur on.  The voice of Afflack is tough to take at times but he has an even-keeled co-host and it's funny when GG (hehehe) does what Wally Wackiman did during 'The Feltdown': "you're losing the voice"  I've listened to all the mini-sodes about specific movies plus the Adam West, Dan Harmon, Drew Friedman, Scott Alexander/Larry Karaszewski (writers of 'Problem Child', 'Ed Wood', 'Big Eyes), Dick Cavett interviews so far and am really digging it.

The celeb interviews are fine, but the long-form improv segment has died a death on almost every episode. Especially the episodes with Amanda Lunda, who really has a gift for stopping any forward momentum in a scene.

I've gone through all the Gilbert Gottfried Amazing Colossal Podcasts that I'm willing to listen to: skipping Penn Jillett, Bob Zmuda, Danny Bonaduce, and Marty Allen (b/c he's just been on WTF) and am sad there aren't more. 

I like his bingo card categories -- did he mention the Paul Lynde joke? the Danny Thomas incident? Milton Berle vs Forrest Tucker? playing 'who's a Jew'? Lon Chaney Jr. in 'Of Mice And Men'? 'The Ghost of Frankenstein'? How anti-semetic Paul Lynde is? and how anti-semitic high-pitched voice Patton is? his impression of Old Groucho? 

My favorite episodes are Drew Friedman, Scott Alexander/Larry Karaszewski, Susie Essman, Billy West, Butch Patrick, Dave Atell and special mentions for batship nutso guests Gianni Russo (the guy who James Caan beats up in The Godfather who claims to be a real mob guy and had sex with Marilyn Monroe) and Danny Aiello (wonder why the jobs aren't rolling in for him?)

For the older guests he tones down the Afflack voice and the celebrity roast jokes which is endearing.  GG flames out on the show with Steve Buscemi which is regrettable b/c I never hear SB interviewed.

'The Ghost of Frankenstein'? How anti-semetic Paul Lynde is? and how anti-semitic high-pitched voice Patton is? his impression of Old Groucho? 

My favorite episodes are Drew Friedman, Scott Alexander/Larry Karaszewski, Susie Essman, Billy West, Butch Patrick, Dave Atell and special mentions for batship nutso guests Gianni Russo (the guy who James Caan beats up in The Godfather who claims to be a real mob guy and had sex with Marilyn Monroe) and Danny Aiello (wonder why the jobs aren't rolling in for him?)

For the older guests he tones down the Afflack voice and the celebrity roast jokes which is endearing.  GG flames out on the show with Steve Buscemi which is regrettable b/c I never hear SB interviewed.

He talks about this in the Lewis Black episode I think and it's just as awful as he describes it.

I've been listening to 'Until I Loose Interest' lately and I'm beginning to like it a lot.  The host is a chemist turned comedian or something and he talks with people who went through terrible life events (mostly up and coming comedians). 

This week was Adam Egret, and he talks about reform/cult/boarding school he was forced to go to when he was 13 years old.  You might know Adam from the old Norm MacDonald show.

Interesting subject matter.  Gets really dark sometimes.

Had to fast forward through the monologue before S&W on "Maron." His TV show is alright, but man everytime I try to play a single episode of his podcast, I have to shut it off ASAP.

Also, late pass: BULLSEYE is great and Jesse Thorn is the interview I always want Terry Gross to be. Sometimes he derails JUDGE JOHN HODGMAN a lot but good shit. So late on it.

It was a fun interview, but I wish they talked about Nesmith's music after The Monkees. There are stories about the making of The Wichita Train Whistle Sings that I would love to hear confirmed or disproven (Did they actually have the Wrecking Crew on the weekend so they would be paid time and a half? Were people loaded while performing? Did Nesmith ever write lyrics for "Don't Cry Now"?) I know it sounds bizarre asking about an album that Videoranch doesn't even sell as a physical CD anymore (only downloads), but I like the oddities.

Sometimes billed as "The Phil Spector Wall of Sound Orchestra", they gave us drummer Hal Blaine, bass guitarist Carol Kaye, guitarist Tommy Tedesco, scads of other people. They played everything from film scores, to ad jingles, to session work for Nat King Cole, Brian Wilson, and a long list of others.

I'm listening to the Obama episode of Maron right now... Only ten minutes in, but I'm impressed by how personable and direct he seems in conversation. Likeable even. Seeing as in Australia we currently have a leader who is completely unrelatable, seems to have no emotional intelligence and pretty much acts like a malfunctioning robot, its nice to hear.

I'm very curious to know what y'all American FOTs made of the interview?
Title: Re: Podcast Suggestions?
Post by: Andrew F on June 24, 2015, 11:52:56 AM
Personally, I thought it was a great interview. Maron really made the most of an opportunity to get out of the guest's way (which he sometimes has an issue with when he's interviewing a fellow comedian) and just let them talk. Plus, it was nice to not hear Obama just deflect for an hour. He gave quite a few honest and candid answers that you probably wouldn't hear on a network TV interview.

I've been listening to Human Conversation With Erin McGathy and Wayne Federman, a Feral Audio podcast.  It's a weekly podcast which features a free-flowing conversation between two interesting and funny people who can converse.  Includes anecdotes about Sean Penn crushing Wayne at a Q & A of Into the Wild, fishing stories with Erin and her father, what makes good fireworks, movie-talk, going to Neutral Milk Hotel's last tour, how non-hot Jellyfish was, how going to bookstores is a good way to test people's 'thirst for knowledge', etc.  There is no agenda.  I've always liked Wayne Federman as a guest on other podcast and Erin McGathy is the best thing about Harmontown.

Yes. The Belt Buckle episode was a wonderful story.

Their ads are equally stupid and somehow inspired. The one I remember is like "Casper mattresses -- when you're going to be felt up by a horny ghost at night!"

Sometimes it seems like they are breaking (one of them makes like a muffled laugh/cackle noise into the mic often), but their commitment somehow doesn't waver.

I don't know if it's been mentioned here, but my brother just turned me on to You Must Remember This (http://www.vidiocy.com/youmustrememberthispodcastblog/): "The secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood's first century."

I've JUST started listening to it, and so far it's not quite NPR production quality, but the subject matter is exactly the kind of stuff I can't get enough of. The Gilbert Gottfried show is still the closest to my ideal podcast for its balance of entertainment history with humor, but You Must Remember This is so far showing real golden era Hollywood deep-diving promise.

Also, I just have to mention what is probably the worst podcast I've ever heard. It's so bad I'm fascinated with it to the point that I wonder if it is actually some kind of long-con prank. It's called "True Murder: The Most Shocking Killers in True Crime History and the Authors that Have Written About Them" and it's hosted by this Dan Zupansky character who has seemingly no presence on the internet except for this podcast. The show is a long-form interview with various true crime authors, and generally runs from 1-2 hours.

But I'm not exaggerating here: The show literally sounds like it was produced by placing a cassette recorder near the speaker of an AM radio. The quality is so poor that half the reviews on iTunes are from people who couldn't stand to listen to more than a few minutes of it. But audio quality is only half of the problem: The host, Dan, is laughably inept. He stumbles when reading introductions, he asks dumb questions, and he tries way too hard to lead his guests down some predetermined interview path rather than letting the conversation flow naturally. These are things you'd expect a rookie to do, but this guy's done like 230 of these things, and it's still just as bad in every way. It's unlistenable in nearly every way, but it feels like it could be so bad its intentional? But to what end?

If you like prank phone calls, Brad Carter (the guy who gave us Phone Losers of America) runs a podcast called The Snow Plow Show (http://www.phonelosers.org/category/snow-plow-show/) where he calls anybody he can get a phone number and a small smidge of personal info on, when he isn't dialing 7-11s to see if he can get them to turn off their circuit-breakers, or telling apartment complex managers that he took up the carpet in 27B and is gluing pennies to the floor. I was a real fan of his previous Phone Show because it was more of a group effort with Spessa, Roxy, Linear, that drunken lunatic "Laugh Track Matt" Hillock, Rappy McRapperson, John Legend, etc. Unfortunately that show is now part of a free 61 gigabyte "media pack" you can get here (http://www.phonelosers.org/torrent/).

I am a big fan of the dollop, and lately I've been getting into the Duckfeed network of podcasts like Abject Suffering and Bonfire Side Chat (gaming podcasts).

About the dollop - I enjoyed stuff you missed in history class, but had to quit on it years ago due to incessent, nonstop advertising. The dollop scratches that same itch but with more humor and personality. I do miss Deblina Chakravorty, though, because she has an awesome name.

I really, really enjoyed S-town. I think it's really something special.

It's pretty well known that Armond White sucks.
But somehow the guy is freaking fascinating when he's talking about Prince and the Talking Heads.

He was alway interesting when Ron and Fez had him on.

Kinda like Gallagher that way.  Can't stand the thing they're known for, but on a podcast or Howard Stern type thing I'll listen for like an hour.

Armond White can be pretty great when passionately talking/writing about films that aren't what's currently being disliked by other critics and when he drops the need to show off his film knowledge by throwing out random references left and right.

I like that Armond White exists. He's a contrarian in the classic sense. There's room for him.
