David Wong is king

I listen to every episode with David Wong. He’s an important thought leader in these times, especially, in my opinion, for high school and college age guys.

So Much Promise, So Little Delivery

Every title looks great. But content that actually relates to the title is remarkably slim. First, the participants are constantly speaking over each other and wisecracking and laughing - not in a Car Talk way where the panelists know how to riff off each other, but each going their own way at the same time. Second, so often the content is lightly informed, to put it charitably. I get that these aren't supposed to be experts, but there's an awful lot of "Yeah, I wonder why..." and "I'll bet it has something to do with..." when having an actual subject expert on instead of unscripted comics would clear the matter up in a second. I've tried and tried, but I just can't listen to this podcast anymore.

I no longer recommend this to my friends

I used to listen to this every Monday. I loved it. Cracked has really changed in the past years Shmitty is a good host, but the show has really lost something. The content used to be full of knowledge and funny. Now it’s just snarky, and making fun of religions is ok now by them.
