We're always talking about them in the chat, so let's talk about them a bit out here. My collection leans heavily toward comedy.
Affirmation Nation with Bob Ducca:
An Earwolf production, this is a bite-sized, scripted, 2 minute series of meditations about health, therapy, and your bear.
Comedy Bang Bang aka Comedy Death-Ray Radio aka Indie 103:
How are you not listening to this? Home to That's How You Play Would You Rather. One of the best comedy podcasts around, and an unequaled one when it comes to improv.
Doug Loves Movies:
Where the Leonard Maltin game is played. You'll love it if you love movies.. or not.
Learn shit! Subscribe to the magazine, and listen to even more than the free podcast provides.
Girl on Guy with Aisha Tyler:
This is a brand new podcast. The first episode starts with a 15 minute intro, but if you wait/fast forward you'll get to laugh until you cry. I did.
Best old-school rap podcast around.
How Did This Get Made:
Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas rip your least loved films to shreds in a most entertaining way. Oh wait, I just went and gave this show no justice. It's a great Podcast, with some of the best laugh density around. It really works for me.
Unlicensed and Uninsured Private Eye: A scripted series by Earwolf, and an unmissable one. So, don't miss it. Jesus, how many times do I have to tell you?
The Pod F. Tompkast:
By Paul Fucking Tompkins. From Mr Show and Being Fucking fame.
Slate's: Hang Up and Listen, Culture Gabfest, Political Gabfest:
The content is different, but the style is uniform; I enjoy Slate's offerings:
The Sporkful (also GastroLab):
A fun food podcast.
Who Charted?: Howard Kramer
is that dude.
You Had to Be There:
Funniest girls around, Nikkie Glaser and Sara Schaefer are hilarious, and always complemented by funny comedians and musical guests (both!)
I have a huge backlog of other Podcasts that I've downloaded, liked, but have not bothered to go through their archives yet. The Nerdist, WTF, Filmspotting, Never Not Funny, etc. You get the idea.
