A podcast of topical humor is a tricky beast.

Would the average Daily Show still have the same bite, six months later? So it's a tribute to this podcast that, despite the host's penchant for holding onto episodes for months after recording them, they still make me laugh out loud every time. The host, comedian Peter-John Byrnes, brings on a couple of guests to talk about the big news stories of the day, and their free-flowing discussion is always fun; despite the podcast's cynical veneer, there's a warmth to it that I really enjoy. Add a catchy theme song and I'm definitely on board. I hope he releases some new episodes soon, so I can hear what he thought about last January’s events.
