Great for listening in the car

Really fun show for commutes or road trips. Love the concept of a game the listeners can play along with, and the improv peppered throughout keeps it lighthearted and silly. Some of the episodes get a little long, but otherwise it’s great fun!

What Fun.

What a delightful podcast. You have genuine and funny humans challenging your pop culture knowledge through audio clips. Engaging and a lighthearted escape from the news, for which I am addicted. Thanks!

Fun, entertaining podcast with listener “participation”!

Love the concept of this podcast: hosts play out-of-context audio clips of a podcast for each other, speculating about the content to try and guess the actual subject matter. It’s fun to hear them get closer to the truth—or go wildly off-track! And the format lends itself to listeners making their own guesses. (It gives me a sense of satisfaction when I guess the topic before they do!) The hosts are fun to listen to—you can tell they are friends and having a good time, but they don’t rely on a bunch of personal, inside jokes to entertain themselves. They have an easy rapport with each other, and they don’t have to try too hard to be entertaining. The podcast is just the right length (not longer than 30 minutes), and it sounds professional (unlike other “homemade” podcasts that can have terrible audio issues). Give this a listen, and you will be happy you did!
