  1. Damn you Tig! First Sarah Silverman, and now Sascha. Are you intentionally bringing in your hottest female guests to talk about sexual attraction, just to get us hetero male (and lesbian!) listeners all hot and bothered? If you are, it's working.


    In all seriousness, though, I am so looking forward to listening to this one. And for the record, Sascha would be a delight to listen to even if she didn't look like such a "hottie" in her picture.


    Hey, I'm sure you didn't mean it like that, but this is sort of creepy.

  2. There is a point to the fact that most of these podcasts have been malecentric though. And as has been said several times, it's this 2-3 guys talking about guystuff content that just doesn't stick out, even among these 10 contestants. The Fort, Television Zombies, The Complete Guide to Everything and Bob and Dankind of became the same show for me mentally, since there is very little to differentiate them with. "Oh, right those were the one's that talked about a mini-bigfoot. No, it were those guys. No..."

    Do people listen to Totally Laime because they want to hear a woman? No, but having a woman on the show breaks the mold and makes the content a bit fresher and more universal in my opinion. I can't put my finger on it, but I must honestly say that Bob and Dan feels like it could use a female co-host, bring it out of the boy's room. The cool thing about The Dum Dum Club is that even though they are two guys with other male hosts they never seem to get stuck in the videogame/sci-fi-swamp and at the same time doesn't go all "bro"-comedy. And this is coming from a pretty nerdy person.

  3. Honestly I'm conflicted on F+. On one hand they have a solid concept down and they've showed over and over again that they have a LOT of material to go on. Having an hour of material is also much more indictive of the quality of the show than these 3 minute clips, so it's hard to compare.

    On the other hand, as it has been said, is it just going to be them riffing on a sexual fetish for x minutes? Unless they bring something besides reading forum posts in funny voices, I don't know if I'll stick around. There's a reason why that kind of comedy is usually in written form and not read aloud with laughter along side it. They say that they go into discussions and the reasons behind it, but they've never really demonstrated that, have they? Why not use a 3 minute clip of them having a discussion on adult sissies instead of reading something weird off the internet and expect everyone to "get it"?

    That said, Bob & Dan was by far the weakest of the bottom 3. I don't need more videogame references in my life and I sure as hell don't need them spouted out like a lightning round of "Catch that Reference".
