In the inaugural episode of The Cracked Podcast, co-hosts Jack O’Brien & Michael Swaim discuss generation gaps. They ask Earwolf hosts about semen pumping, talk to Daniel O’Brien about incorrect pop culture memories, and have a conversation on the Flynn effect.

It took Marvel years to establish their shared universe on film and they did it on their first try on podcast.

Finally ... after decades of waiting, I get to hear what Alfred E Neumann's voice sounds like? If he uses his "What, me worry?" catchphrase, I swear to god I'll LOSE MY MIND!!!

Oh wait ... this is the other magazine that is not actually a magazine anymore. Well, I'll be interested to see what this is all about and whether it is worthy of the $0.00 investment that it requires.

You guys are off to a flying start. Between NKOTB surviving on semen and the JFK/donut line I am enjoying the shit out of this podcast so far.

I'm going to have to disagree with them about the movie trailers. Not to say your point about that trailer and other trailers like it isn't valid, if anything now trailers are just spoon feeding the audience. I have to stop watching so many trailers like 30 seconds to a minute in because I can tell they're just going to summarize the entire movie.

That aside I really enjoyed the podcast and look forward to more episodes.

I like this show a lot! Starting things off by posing generational questions to fellow show-hosts was a great way to integrate this 'Cast into the Earverse (Earworld?)

The topic of manufactured & mis-told stories becoming "fact" in the public mind is an eternally fascinating one for me. Loved everything about this premier episode ... except for when you guys dissed the Archies. Don't front on the Archies, y'all.

Some PRE-INTERNET pop-music rumors from my middle school/ Junior High years:

1.) The thoroughly debunked "story behind the story" of Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight". I can totally remember kids my age talking about this suburban legend with wide eyes and hushed tones: http://www.snopes.co...gs/intheair.asp

2.) "Hey man, did you hear that (Journey singer) Steve Perry DIED??!!??" -- that was pretty much the whole story. I don't think any details were divulged as to how or why he died. I'm not sure how widespread this story was, but I remember hearing it around my junior high school a lot.
Anyway, Steve Perry didn't die. In retrospect, I think the main purpose of this story was so mean middle-school boys could get Perry-crushing middle-school girls to cry.

Related topics: I enjoyed this show about the folklore behind "Christmas". It turns out that a lot of the stuff we think of as "age old tradition" was invented relatively recently, by Madison Avenue/Don Draper type people: http://probablyscien...e-001-christmas

Two thoughts

1. Didn't realize Cracked was still around

2. Interesting premise, I'll give it another shot but it was kinda awkward and the music bumps were annoying. I'm sure they'll get better

I enjoyed this! It's like Cracked meets NPR.
