Sorry buddy ,

Funnier than actual comedians

These guys are funnier than other podcasts hosted by actual comedians. It’s just relaxed banter, with a real genuine friendship. The frequency is great (a few times a week), the insights are always interesting, but really I’m here for the moments when I legitimately laugh out loud.

Chairman of the Bored ,

My favourite podcast

These guys have great conversations about fascinating ideas and people. Their takes on everything are super smart and it’s all done with real enthusiasm. Also the frequency of a couple of times a week is good too.

MFM is goat
