Better and Better

This podcast is a lifeline for me and the only one I have consistently enjoyed. Jennifer's growing presence is a wonderful boon. When I first began listening years ago the episodes were only hilarious and entertaining. Alright, I also gained more knowledge on the Roman Empire than I expected to. Since oh, say, feels like sometime in 2016ish, this show became so much more. These sessions have increasingly buoyed me, consoled me, and educated me. I am forever grateful for the next episode, and I do believe I just showed myself I had better go put my money where my gratitude is.

5 stars but it’s bad now

This used to be, hands-down, my favorite show. Greg masterfully demonstrated that you really can make comedy out of everything and he did it LIVE; going up every week in front of an audience and killing all over the world. Topics would flow from funk music to baseball to politics to weird French movies and it somehow never felt disjointed. People were always with it. Like I said, a revelation to me in terms of what comedy could be.

In addition to just being so naturally hilarious, Greg was absolutely instrumental in radicalizing me during Occupy Wall Street in 2012.

Then 2016 rolled around and Greg went from a freewheelin’ radical lefty comedian to the lamest centrist in the world. The show went from “Occupy Wall Street is important and all billionaires are bad” to regularly slamming the one presidential candidate who was addressing that situation. I remember him saying “I do not care if Hillary is a war hawk”.

Uh oh, what happened to my guy?

Moral of the story; Don’t have heroes, folks; at least not boomer heroes. They age like milk and go all Bill Maher on you.

The show is bad now but it gets the five stars for what it used to be: INCREDIBLE. Alas, you can’t go home again but I’ll always remember 2011-2014-era Greg very fondly.

Fortress of proopitude

Used to love Greg’s live podcast recordings but good lord the fortress episodes should be renamed the dumbest couple in the world. Their continued backing of the Biden cabinet during this last 6 months had been the last straw. Sayonara willfully blind Proops.
