Amazing

Rather than try and avoid the cliches of an effusively saccharine review, I'm going to lean right into it. That they share their friendship in such honest dialogues has honestly changed how I approach and think about my own personal relathionships. Film, love, democracy, literature, capitalism - somehow they manage to have trenchant, cogent insights in every partition of their (our) modern lives and then suddenly cut to discussions about ignorantly pooping on the rim of a toilet in a devastatingly compelling manner. Honest to God, I love you guys.

They Capture the Zeitgeist of Our Time

I discovered TRP in 2017 and I'm ashamed I'm only reviewing now as we approach 2020 and the episodes have become less frequent this year. It's the sort of podcast that is easy to relate to, yet it's DENSE with a wide range content and references. There's always something to learn from Adam, Nick, and Erik. They all have similar worldviews at a macro level but unique reactions and opinions that keep discussion colorful, even moving through darker content. It's also "dense" in the sense that a relisten to episodes a few months later always seems to reward me with new connections and insights I didn't pick up on the first playthrough.

On one hand it's the sort of podcast that you urgently want to recommend to everyone; I think because it's so dang therapeutic to listen to others acknowledging how insane of our world can be, but in a nuanced and analytical way. As a show covering a such wide range of topics, it's not exactly a show that neatly fits into the traditional podcast genres that people actively seek out. When I do recommend it, I feel a deep dread, an insecurity that the other party might reject it, or - almost worse - not have the patience to give TRP the chance it deserves. On the other hand, I only found the Picnic through word-of-mouth myself, so maybe I should be more trusting of my friends' tastes.

I deeply hope the guys find a way to get back to monthly recordings, because they have made a real and permanent impact on real people, for the better.

This is so wonderful.

Relentless picnic makes me also feel okay about myself, that there are other people out there that think like me and want to talk like I do and think like I do. Wish I could listen to this everyday / just talk with you all. Thank you.
