New York Podcasts?

Recommended Posts

It seems as though every podcast I listen to is based out of Los Angeles. There are so many HILARIOUS NYC comedians that I love (Eugene Mirman, Max SIlvestri, Slovin & Allen, A.D. Miles just to name a few) and I want to hear them more!

I know of How Was Your Week with Julie Klausner, but that's the only NYC-based podcast I know about/listen to. Any recommendations?

Rob Stern's Overload the Machine pulls great guests and is reliably solid, as is Sara Schaefer and Nikki Glaser's You Had To Be There. The both of them also put up live versions of their shows on the regular, too.

And lest we forget that The Earwolf Challenge has THREE New York podcasts competing, Beginnings, Left Handed Radio, and the Complete Guide to Everything.

EDIT: I completely forgot the terrific Dave Hill's Podcasting Incident.

I had a friend who was a frequent contributor to a popular podcast called Keith and the Girl. He currently has his own podcasts in Toronto and still does editing work for them.

If you're a comedy nerd who's interested in the comics working out of that tough-as-nuts, take-no-bullshit, make-no-aplogies, sprawling, brawling city we call New Yoooooooooooooooork you might well enjoy the loooooooong-running and very popular "Keith And The Girl" Caroline. Keith Malley is as comedy nerd as they come - he listens to every comedy album and watches every TV special even when he knows he won't like the comic - and his exotic, talented and brassy ex-girlfriend Chemda Khalili is a great co-host who goes out to see comedy in the city three to four times a week so she really has her finger on the pulse of tyhe NYC scene and over the years KATG've continued to get many, many great guests such as Victor Varnado, Myq Kaplan, Marc Maron, Ophira Eisenberg, Pat Dixon, Greg Giraldo and Doug Stanhope. A fun episode to start might be last week's #1427 (yes they've done over 1400 episodes) with super smart up-and-comer and Jon Oliver opener Mike Lawrence.

Actually, speaking of Pat Dixon, there is also the black, black humour of the New York City Crime Report. I don't know of another comedy podcast out there with a sensibility more shadowy, deep and dark and than the NYC Crime Report's Yin to the mostly light, fluffy and silly Yang we get from the majority of LA podcasts.

The Flop House is a really fun podcast with two writers from the Daily Show and their drunk friend ripping on movies, but mostly spend time getting lost in comic, TV and softcore porn references and bad puns. They do usually not have a guest, but that means the three of them have honed their chemistry to the point they set each other up for their respective bits or weird tangents and movie pitches. I just heard of them a few weeks ago and they are up there for favorite podcast. If you can't get enough bad movie entertainment out of How Did This Get Made?, definitely check out The Flop House.

Hey guys, checking out the forums due to How Did This Get Made? being a bad movie podcast that I've heard a lot about and just listened to some. I also recently checked out The Flophouse. Anyway, I'm also part of an NYC-based comedy podcast that happens to focus on movies as well.

Our new episode is on "Captain America" (1990) unlike HDTGM and Flophouse, we tend to focus on older material, and recently started an Exploitation side-bar series, which means on some odd weeks, a bonus short 20-30 min episode will drop on top of our regular line-up. If you're curious, check us out.

As far as our credentials go, we're not super popular comics. I am still trying to break in as a comedy writer but have worked on funny TV things such as "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and Lifetime Television. The other members of the podcast come from a big improv background, having been preforming at Upright Citizens Brigade and Magnet theaters in NYC for years. More information is of course on our website. http://WHMPodcast.com

Thanks all,

Hey everyone. Our guest on "We Hate Movies" tomorrow will be Stephen Tobolowsky, who you know from movies, television, and his very popular podcast "The Tobolowsky Files." I hope you tune in if you're a fan of Stephen's and of course, be sure to check our the episode we released this Tuesday: "18 Again!" with George Burns (he's in the movie we riff on, not on our show... as he is dead.) Our address is http://WHMPodcast.com but you can also find us on iTunes. Thanks everyone,

30000 kHz of Sound is bizarre comedy podcast that we that was started in 2007 as a live show in NYC, but has also appeared in Philly and Boston.

 

http://www.30000khz.com

 

It's basically improv scenes inspired by radio soundbites, public access shows, other electronic media. This show was originally inspired by AM Coast to Coast. Armando Diaz, Ashley Ward, and many others have performed on it.

I'm putting together a podcast network that's NYC based. Mostly with friends in the PIT/UCB communities.

If you know anyone who's interested, let me know!
