A Vague Idea is a comedy / trivia podcast hosted by Nate Ragolia & Shannon Paige, with (sometimes) John Peros. Each week, we subject our special guests to a themed list of topics from pop culture, news, politics, history, and more, and find out if they have "A VAGUE IDEA". We also play an array of games, tell stories, offer hot takes, crack jokes, rant, and crown the episode's winner.
Snake Oil with Jason Ling & Laura Morrison
WE'RE BACK! And we're talking about fake products, fake salespeople and other whimsical outcomes of Capitalism! This week, Jason and Laura return to debate the likes of RFK Jr., Daffy's Elixir, Clark Stanley and Simpson & Son Revitalizing Tonic. Plus we play FMK and I See What You Did There!

SPECIAL EVENT: Funky Spunk (The Man, The Myth, The Viagra) with Nate Ragolia
Nate is moving! In lieu of a new episode of A Vague Idea, treat your ears to a March 2021 episode of our Sex and the City podcast, Funky Spunk, featuring Nate as guest. Britt, Zimmie, and Nate talk about Season 2 Episode 8, "The Man, The Myth, The Viagra," from 1999. It's fun, it's funny, and it's FABULOUS.

The Devil with Kelly Attaway & Billy Ferguson
He's in the details! This week, we wager our immortal souls in a conversation about THE DEVIL. Kelly and Billy test their knowledge on topics like Mephistopheles, Security Administrator Tool for Analyzing Networks, Bedazzled, Mr. Satan and more. Plus, we play I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE and F**k, Marry, Kill!
Fun and orginal
Great podcast! Fun and entertaining. Mixing trivia and comedy is great, and the guests have a blast.
Funny casual banter, with an interesting, diverse array of guests
This is vaguely a trivia show, but more silly banter. Guests, and host Nate, easily are sidetracked, but the conversation never gets dull. Take a listen, you might learn something, but it probably won’t be useful, but probably will be funny.
A fun deep dive!
No matter the topic, Nate and Shannon get dope guests who will teach you some nerdy wormholes while having a blast!
