Great show

Discovered your show fairly recently and have been really enjoying it! Love from a fellow Carl (class of ’00).

(Yes I know that only applies to Noah, but enjoy you both.)

Keeping it high and tight

These dudes keep it high and tight and present great and thoughtful debates.

Bursting the bubbles of pop culture

Unlike most podcasts about pop culture, the hosts of this podcast don't consume it mindlessly. Instead they sift the fads & brands of the moment for real insights into the modern world. Their approach to each subject is relaxed & informal, but beneath that is a weekly lesson in media literacy. In every episode, they respect the inquiry even when they don't think much of the subject. It helps that Bill Scurry & Noah Tarnow are funny guys with great chemistry & crack timing. But the key to their dynamic is that, unlike most middle-aged white guys, they actually listen to each other. "I Don't Get It" makes for an entertaining & informative listen.
