    Field Notes
    We talk about getting back into comedy "post-COVID" while we deal with yet another COVID crisis.

    Grab your coffee mugs because a new Dilbert just dropped?

    Somebody call Invader Zim because Dave Chappelle certainly has become something of a Hot Topic lately! He almost got into a random encounter with a Final Fantasy weapon after all.

    Donate to Abortion Rights here. Better than sitting around and bitching on some obscure podcast, right?

    Thanks for all the support guys. I dunno if anyone reads this, but we really appreciate it.

A great topical-yet-oddly-timeless podcast

Thought Cops is about the best show I’ve found that is “topical” in a way that doesn’t instantly date itself, which is probably because it’s a comedy podcast, but it’s also very thoughtful. It does a good job of pulling insights from the baffling/silly/absurd news stories it talks about. Also, the stories are usually so absurd/flash-in-the-pan that listening to older episodes just further exacerbates the weird flash-in-the-pan “news” culture we live in, since these days a week goes by and anything from last week is “dated” anyway. All to say this is a really fun podcast, very silly and serious at once, and highly recommend anyone give it a listen. The theme song is also probably the best in the biz.

Thought Cops are a must add to your weekly podcast queue

Join Kevin and Grant as they take on the most annoying, toxic, cringy, and otherwise problematic characters and content from the internet. The problem I have with a lot of podcasts is they don’t have a clear and properly sized scope. Not the case with Thought Cops. If you’ve ever ranted about something ppl are doing on facebook or twitter, these guys have probably talked about it. Give em a listen. Speaking of listen, can’t wait to listen to you guys read my 5 star review

OOwee

Sometimes when I am just Vibing in my car, I hear sirens and then Kevin goes WWWWWWWELCOME TO THOUGHT COPS and it scares me awake, but there are no real police, so I fall comfortably back to sleep to the soothing sounds of Grant’s descent into insanity.
