Hosts Ben Brock Johnson and Amory Sivertson dig into the internet's vast and curious ecosystem of online communities to find untold histories, unsolved mysteries, and other jaw-dropping stories online and IRL.
Coming October 1st... MEMES!
On October 1st, Endless Thread is back. We're kicking things off with a deep exploration into something that has changed lives, politics, and the way we interact online and IRL... memes!
Snacktime: Why You Should Care About Other People
Ben tells Amory about a controversial idea for a reality TV show. Amory tells Ben about the thing Dr. Anthony Fauci did NOT say... but everyone thinks he did.
Snacktime: Mystery Celebs & Fed-Up Mods
Ben tells Amory about a subreddit trying to determine the identity of a mystery celebrity, and Amory tells Ben about an open letter penned by Reddit moderators that's calling on the platform to take stronger action against COVID-19 misinformation and disinformation on the platform.
Suitcases of Cash and Bob Saget's Ghost
Gather round for this week’s Snacktime episode, where Ben tells iLab producer Nora Saks two stories about found money, a gambling ruse in a Belizean casino, and why Bob Saget would block himself on Twitter if he could.
What is Geedis? Endless Thread revisits an episode from 2019 in which the team joined the internet's two-year-long quest to answer this question. The strange, furry character and his buddies in The Land of Ta had been a mystery of 80’s fantastical proportions. Follow us down the rabbit hole for an exciting discovery...
Snacktime: Weird Spotify Playlists
Fun fact: Ben wooed his wife with a mix CD, and Amory's husband wooed her with a mix CD. The lesson? Never underestimate the power of a good playlist. But if it's a "Weird Spotify Playlist," the object of your affection better have a sense of humor. In this episode, Amory introduces Ben to the fast-growing "Weird Spotify Playlists" Twitter account and subreddit, where song titles are way more important than the songs themselves.
Good show, need to learn how GIF is pronounced
Seriously, not a bad show. But for a show ABOUT Reddit, allegedly involved in it as well, how do they not know the proper pronunciation for GIF. Makes me feel like the hosts and writers don't even Reddit and just rip off stories. May or may not be true
STOP SAYING “LIKE” every other word Ben!
Can’t listen because of the constant “like” inserted everywhere and the sophomoric humour.
I find this podcast quite entertaining and enjoy the format. LOL @ the antivaxxer who gave them 1 star. Don’t mind that person and give this podcast a shot :)
