Call me a nerd, but I love an educational discussion that explores different topics. Stuff You Should Know is the podcast that got me into listening to podcasts almost exclusively. A factoid podcast that explores a different subject each episode, SYSK offers in depth discussion into topics varying from How the La Brea Tar Pits Work to How Avalanches Work. I try to keep up with their podcast, and I can honestly say that every subject is interesting, no matter how boring they may seem (Microlending anyone?). Each episode runs, on average, 30 minutes, but occasionally they may fall shorter or run longer. Hosts Josh Clark and Charles W. Bryant are both endearing speakers who manage to make every topic feel personal and enjoyable.
Joe Rogan is not your every day, run of the mill comedian, game show host, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ringside commentator, martial artist, actor, or radio personality. In fact, he is one of the most interesting sources of entertainment on the Internet who decided to plant his roots in the pod casting world. Over 500 episodes in, running at around 2-3 hours per episode, the Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) is, without a doubt, the best variety podcast available, and honestly, there are quite a few choices in variety shows that may be reviewed in future articles. (I forgot to mention that the show is cohosted by Brian Redban, who runs Death Squad TV).
So, here we have it, our very first podcast. There are some kinks we must address for the next podcast, and understand that this is a work in progress. Many hours were spent making this podcast more listenable, but we will be reviewing everything in order to make sure the cast feels more streamlined.
With that being said, this podcast has EXPLICIT LANGUAGE, and if certain words offend you, then I ask you, politely, not to listen, or you will be offended. We are both crude pirate misogynists. (Okay, we aren’t that bad, but I noticed the occasional rated R word here and there).
Rounding out the list of announcements for each category, I end the list with Podcasts, because this may be the biggest project. Now, if I roll a 10 on the die, I will likely talk about a certain podcast, or I will write something about a podcast from Just Chill Here.
I and a handful of friends will be podcasting together in order to hit all 10 categories, and hopefully I can get some special guests to join me in my podcasts. They will be on iTunes and other Podcasting services. I am not sure of the exact date when this will begin, but once I get a few new “toys,” I will update the site.
Also, once I get the podcast going, I will explain the free-for-all format we will abide by.
