A collection of pop culture podcasts full of smart, funny people who love talking about TV, movies, books, comics, games, and much more. This feed contains episodes from all the podcasts produced by The Incomparable.
Watchers of the Plus 30: The last of Ron Swanson (just don't tell Otto)
We focus our efforts on the new show that everyone wants to talk about, you know the one, the Joel and Ellie show. The fleshing out of the game narrative is a challenge. Is this storytelling working or is Neil Druckman causing contention as he did with Naughty Dog’s franchise? - Sam Adams and Philip Mozolak.
Game Show 197: I Can Hear the Screams in My Head
Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure. We return after a long hiatus to ask our panelists to identify characters by their extremely long sobriquets, sniff out what doesn’t fit in a list, and decipher some mashed-up movie musicals. Glenn Fleishman, Shelly Brisbin, and Steve Lutz take on Kathy Campbell, Monty Ashley, and Annette Wierstra in a nail-biter for the ages. - Dan Moren and Lex Friedman with Glenn Fleishman, Shelly Brisbin, Steve Lutz, Kathy Campbell, Monty Ashley and Annette Wierstra.
Total Party Kill 382: Why Is This Castle This Way?
We’ve gotta social engineer Strahd unless he keeps his password on a post-it. - Tony Sindelar with Aleen Simms, Dan Moren, Erika Ensign, Jane Ritt and Mikah Sargent.
The Cast of Us 4: S1E3 Review: "Long, Long Time"
Remember when Tiff, Ben, and Brian speculated that each episode of The Last of Us would have a flashback to 2003? Well, this episode has one of those. What happens in that flashback may or may not make all three of us cry on the podcast; you’ll have to listen to find out. Break out your Linda Ronstadt songbook and pour yourself a glass of wine. - Ben Rice McCarthy, Brian Hamilton and Tiff Arment.
Pants in the Boot 45: Pants in the Pants in the Boot
Glenn takes a seat while panelists discuss literal American-style pants and trousers around the world that are designed for people who identify as women—and the many styles that fail to fit many bodies! Also: missing pockets—the agents of the patriarchy never rest. - Glenn Fleishman with Annette Wierstra, Erika Ensign, Jean MacDonald, Julia Skott, Sarah Hendrica Bickerton, Saskia Koehler and Shelly Brisbin.
Monty and Rhias vs. Movies 28: Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (and 2022 animation in general)
Rhias and Monty watched Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (it was fine) and that means they have seen all of the movies nominated for Best Animated Feature. And several more animated movies besides that! So this episode turns into a retrospective on the year in animation. - Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall.
Great Content. A lot of fun.
I'm not going to tell you that I love every podcast offered by The Incomparable, but there are so darned many of them I enjoy a bunch on a regular basis. Biff! is superhero fun, Total Party Kill is a D&D blast, and Random Trek gives me comfort in these Trek-less times. The mothership show is usually interesting and another favorite is Rocket Surgery, which has hilariously introduced me to "Cool Cat Saves the Kids" and other bargain basement gems (John Carradine Lives! (he doesn’t)). Check out the full feed. You'll find something to enjoy.
So many great shows, such good sound production
This feed is full of so many good shows! There is sure to be something for everyone who likes to listen to geeky smart people talking and laughing about life, tech, movies, TV shows, books, Dr Who, etc. It’s not rude or crass or gross. Fast-paced and brilliant.
PS Actually a few of the speakers are recorded a rather low and I have to sit there changing the volume up for them and down for everyone else. So people are just soft-spoken and thoughtful and I want to hear them too!
After dropping all my political podcasts for the sake of sanity I went looking for something new. I'm not a nerd nor particularly obsessed with movies though I do lean towards sci-fi. This podcast ALMOST makes me wish I were! Very entertaining with in-depth (or at least arguable) analysis of whatever they are discussing. Since finding them I've enjoyed digging through the back catalog to hear their takes on such classics as Back To The Future, The Terminator, and Alien. Looking forward to hearing their recommendations on books and television shows. I really enjoyed the "dueling" podcasts on the newest Star Wars movie with our friends across the pond. Two opposable thumbs up!
