Hey Kids! This is an all podcast edition. I find that as I am getting older, I listen to music as I am driving or running way less in favor of my mind actually being more engaged by conversation. That is not to say that I am necessarily being made smarter, I am just more entertained by podcasts these days. So I thought I would give them a little love.
The Bugle Podcast – The Bugle is a hilarious satirical podcast that stars the Daily Show’s John Oliver and comedian Andy Zaltzman where they basically take the world to task for being absolutely crazy while also providing the all the B.S. and horrible puns you could ever want, but for which you did not ask. The Bugle is responsible for coining the term “F*ckyouology” for the likes of such epic d-bags as Osama Bin Laden and Kim Jong Ill. They also have an official vehicle. Yeah, you clicked that link and now you’re in, I knew it.
How Did This Get Made? – I love a good bad movie. I bought I Know Who Killed Me for $3.00. B & I laughed our way through Fast Five just a few days ago. If you appreciate crazy story jumps and nonsense dialogue, How Did This Get Made? is for you. Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, and June Diane Raphael are all hilarious as they dissect some of the dumbest movies in history. I listened to it during my most recent half marathon, and I actually was laughing during the run. You know it is good if I am laughing and running 13.1 miles. My favorite episode was The Devil’s Advocate because I secretly love that horrible movie. Once you listen, you will have a new appreciation for this image.
The Nerdist Writers Panel – The Nerdist Writers Panel is an awesome, informative weekly conversation where writers (usually TV writers) talk about writing. You guys, I love this podcast. For those who do not know, I am currently working on a number of writing projects, and my dream is to be staffed on a show. This podcast is my extra special view into the world I am desperate to enter. Even if you aren’t an aspiring writer, it is pretty darn entertaining. Turns out the people who write all the shows you like have the ability to entertain you. Amazing, I know. The panel is hosted by Ben Blacker, who is wonderful. That’s not a particularly descriptive word, but once you listen, you will see that it is absolutely on point.
So if you have some time, check out these podcasts. Show them love. Tell them I sent you.
