Great premise, great fun

I've heard every episode since this debuted beause I loved the concept, and at first the hosts made themselves somewhat uncomfortable as they forced themselves to do increasingly weirder things each week. The should could have gone off the rails and veered into stunts, but they've since hit a stride doing fun ideas for projects and reporting back.

It's quick and amusing, with plenty to entertain you. If you like the regular episodes, be sure to jump on the patreon, which adds another ~30min episode each week as you get to hear the behind the scenes banter of picking the next week's challenge.

A great fun podcast that if you're not listening to, you're robbing yourself of a good time each week.

Nothing comes close

No podcast can compare to Do By Friday. It’s the fastest, smartest, weirdest thing on the internet in 2019. Thank you Alex, Max and Merlin for your service.

Cringing and laughing simultaneously

It’s enjoyable to watch “somebody be so committed to something that foolish” (Merlin Mann in “The Screaming Spectrum” episode). What a great summary of this podcast. As a person who did not fall for the Russian collision hoax, sold to Max by Rachel Maddow and her cats, I SHOULD be annoyed by Max’s persistent tin foil hat antics. But I absolutely love this show, especially when Max gets worked up about whatever most recent farcical story is being sold to him. It’s downright fun to watch the incredible commitment to his preconceived notions, however wrong they may be.
