For some reason, September 30th has been designated International Podcast Day. Who knows what that even means, but we’ll take it as an opportunity to show you some excellent podcasts that you may or may not have heard of.
He’s been a fairly successful comic over the years, but he actually ended up being a far better interviewer. Here he is getting personal with one of rock’s most elusive men…Maynard James Keenan:
#2 Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast – Bill Burr
Another comedian using his talents for more than just stand up. Bill Burr comments on events in society, and the little nuances that make humans tick…and he’s always on point. Jeremy Baker turned me on to this guy. Here’s his most recent work:
#3 Sklarbro Country – The Sklar Brothers
Yes, more comedians (noticing a trend?) giving their take on what’s going on in the world. They’ve got a good balance of sports/pop culture in their show. My wife and I listened to these guys on a boat in Cambodia. I prefer not to watch the videos..just listen to the audio:
#4 Toddcast Podcast – Todd Hancock
Gotta throw my old buddy Todd a plug. He’s got a slick sounding show that covers local music, sports, entertainment, lifestyle…basically whatever is going on in the world with a heavy focus on Vancouver. Click the link to hear his stuff.
#5 The League Of Manchildren – Steve Stebbing, Jen Stebbing and whoever else they’ve got along for the ride
Another local plug. These guys get nerdy about broad stuff like movies books and superheroes, very specific stuff like Twin Peaks, and they just have bullshit sessions with whoever they’re interested in (even me once). Again, click the link to check them out.
