  1. This is one of the most lol-inducing CBB episodes of all time - maybe even the most lol-inducing. Once Nick got into his stride and was playing off of Claudia there were so many moments I was laughing so hard my face and stomach were aching.


    Just magnificent.

  2. I actually meant music podcasts! But hey any good heavy shit you know, or anything interesting really I'm always interested.


    The best non-Whooch "music podcast" also happens to regularly deal in "good heavy shit". It's called For Those About To Rock, is a hard rock and metal review show and comes with bonus charming Northern English accents.


    Matter of fact it's so good that even when they're covering "non-good heavy shit", which is fairly often, it's a lot of fun to listen to.

  3. How is 1000% correct on the real reason to watch the World Cup. Sure the athleticism and mad skills are neat but the world class people watching is its true raison d'etra, because there is nothing on the planet that can match it in terms of public displays of pure emotion. Outside of a delivery room it's impossible to see greater joy in the faces of human beings than after they or their team has scored in the World Cup, and delivery rooms have no cameras and only have a couple of joyous folks in them - soccer stadiums have thousands.


    It's the greatest communal event ever invented by mankind. It delivers moments of actual magic.

  4. My nom is (are) Jordan & Jesse (of the Go!). Reason being: it was through their podcast that I met Kulap, and therefore that I became aware of Who Charted?, and therefore that I've been gifted with literally hundreds of hours of cutting-edge entertainment over the years. Let's bring it full-circle in 2014!


    Also from the Maximum Fun network, the Brothers Three of My Brother, My Brother, and Me -- though I realize they're rarely in the same place at the same time, let alone in Los Angeles. So: longshot.


    Also second the bejebus out of these ones.

  5. How about someone who's not just a goddamn ground-breaking pioneer in comedy podcasting and mover and shaker in the NYC comedy world and co-host of the most epic comedy podcast in existence but also a singer who has recorded and toured and has road stories to swap with y'all ... the Queen of Comedy Podcasting, Chemda Khalili.


    Next time they're in town for the LA Comedy Festival y'all just gotta book her. You just gotta.

  6. Traci Rearden has slowly but surely stolen my podcast heart to become one of my favourite characs. Lapkus can hold her own with anyone and it makes me happier than Pharrell to hear her do her thing.


    Everyone else was on form too. I'd claimed elsewhere, skulking around like a backstabbing dog, that the Bachelor Brothers had done their dash with me after their last appearance, but this time they were money. Beautiful, dirty money.




    People go their separate ways all the time. It was during subsequent interviews, wherein Dustin literally and unironically likened Earwolf to the Gestapo, that I realized he is an insufferable dickbag.


    Ku and Wie still seem to be on good terms with him so surely he can't be a total write-off.

  7. Outstandingly hilarious episode. At one point listening to it I remember thinking to myself that I felt high - elated. It feels wrong to single out one particular moment but the moment I realised what Scott's game was as he wheeled the conversation back to PF's U2 sitch as a young man again, before PF jumped on him for it, stands out as a particularly elationary moment.


    So much of the humour is such simple silliness but so perfectly modulated it's sublime.
