100 episodes

Well, I had two weeks of vacation time coming, so I decided to start a podcast about "Weird Al" Yankovic. That was in 2014. Now join me, Dakota Rimmer and my cohost, Gerrit as we dive off the deep end to reach as far into Weird Al's oeuvre for comedy, tropes, deeper meanings, and life lessons. Also, we interviewed Weird Al once, so there's that.

A Fun Geek-Out

I started listening to this podcast a few weeks ago and plowed through the first several where they reviewed every ALbum (but Poodle Hat is missing) as well as a handful of episodes from the last few months.

The early ones are a bit less focused on Weird Al than ones in the last year or so, and the quality was rather amateur (lots of p popping) but it's gotten better. The early ones also take a few tries to download.

When listening to the newer ones, it's nice to geek out with the hosts and learn some stuff. They don't know everything Weird Al related but raise some good thoughts examining things like, is Al self conscious about the early stuff? Or would "Fat" be an okay song if released today? It's certainly more focused and on point.

The podcast is generally clean, language-wise, as Weird Al music is, so it's good to have on in the car when indoctrinating kids into the cult of Al.

The show seems to be recorded a while in advance so it's not always as fresh as it could be, and though most of the p popping is gone, some still is there which is annoying but other than that it's a great four star podcast.

Waka-waka doodoo yeah!

I’d rather spend eternity eating shards of broken glass, than to spend one more minute not listening to this wonderful podcast.

Still Going Strong

This podcast is on their 2nd pass through Weird Al’s full discography. This round through, they’re a lot more focused on background, info, and trivia. It’s truly informative, but also very entertaining!
