This is one of the finer podcasts out there. I listen to a lot of shows and sometimes I think that the person doing the podcast is clearly winging it or just talking into the microphone without any real plan or outline about what they’re saying. With The Crispy Coated Robots, you get to hear two guys who are on a serious mission: To entertain you. The premise is to save all of the mostly trivial data and knowledge we’ve accumulated in our lifetimes. But if you're like me, you’ll quickly find yourself engaged with the show and screaming at your phone because Jim or George left out something that they should’ve had on one of their Top 5 list. You’ll laugh when they bicker and disagree, and you’ll learn something new. Their album reviews are excellent, but it would be lovely if they had an extremely generous sponsor to help them pay for the rights to copyrighted music. Come on, sponsors. Help save the future!
One of my top 5
These guys are hilarious. Great job!
