Absurdist Humor. The bait-and-switch podcast is a comedy / interview program based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We specialize in probing, in-depth interviews where you as a listener will have the unique experience of knowing less about our guests than when the podcast started. Wackiness abounds ..... aplenty..... there's... a...lot. You get the idea.
S4 E12 - Blaine Schultz - Musician and Writer for the Shepherd Express
On this episode, we talk with writer Blaine Schultz from the Shepherd Express. Blaine tells us about how he got his start in writing, his affiliation with music in the Milwaukee area, some of the changes the Shepherd Express has made due to Covid and the reaction the Shepherd Express airbrush artists had when he showed them the picture of us we suggested they put on the cover of their magazine. We kept pushing for it anyway. Enjoy!
S4 E11 - Chad Hohner - We Three Saints
Join us as we talk to our friend Chad Hohner about the adventures we've all had doing our philanthropic work around the world. Enjoy!
S2- E6 The Professors - Consolidated
This consolidated episode dates from a 2019 interview with two Marquette University professors, Alexander Ng and Richard Marklin Jr. These consolidated releases allow newer listeners to get caught up quickly or older listeners a chance to re-listen to an older interview in a more streamlined package . We snip out the intros , outros and music and put both halves back to back.

I am in love with you
Every single day I listen to these podcasts. I have a shrine to you both in my closet. I can be everything you both need. I know where u live.
Now for something completely different..
I like it! Some great topics with some off the cuff humor that has you thinking. Then, the bait and switch occurs and you don't even realize it.
Home Town Favorite
Great to hear fellow Midwesterners on their podcast and hearing from Dutch guests!!
