Remember when Nick recommended the super-niche podcast Containers? You know, the one about containers of the shipping variety? Well Liz decided it was time for a niche podcast war and here we are with The Podcast For Laundry. Zane has a rather theatrical listener submission with The Irrationally Exuberant, and Nick goes to Hollywood with Scriptnotes. Then it's time to let you all know what we thought of last week's recommendations.
Liz Recommends - The Podcast For Laundry with Brett Davis
When Nick decided to bring the super-niche podcast Containers (about, you guessed it, fucking shipping containers), Liz knew she had to out-niche him as payback. And here we are with The Podcast For Laundry.
“When we brought comedian and laundry enthusiast Brett Davis to “talk suds with his buds” on our network, we could never have expected the seemingly affable host and innocuous topic (laundry) to result in this. Regrettably, we are contractually obligated to present The Podcast For Laundry, and apologize to the many guests dragged into Brett’s endless downward spiral. Listener discretion is advised.”
In every episode, Mr. Davis, or an obnoxious, inept version of himself, talks to a friend in a laundromat about washing clothes. Segments include “What’s Your Terge?” where guests discuss their preferred detergent, and “Bleach, Please,” where they talk about something that bothers them about laundry. Each episode is filled with banter gone horribly wrong.
For both: any Tom Scharpling ep, or the hilarious ep with Allie Goertz where Brett pitches his laundry-themed musical.
Nick Recommends - Scriptnotes
Screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin discuss screenwriting and related topics in the film and television industry, everything from getting stuff written to the vagaries of copyright and work-for-hire law.
For either: Take ya pick!
Zane Recommends - The Irrationally Exuberant
Back with another listener submission, Zane has brought in The Irrationally Exuberant. Reid Messerschmidt delivers this podcast (which is also art) this constists of a stream-of-conciousness, scripted, absurdist take on history, pop culture, animals, religion, conspiracies, music, books, language, the paranormal, insects, Johnny Appleseed, The Harlem Globetrotters, McDonald's, Satan, God, humanity, crows, Reptilians, alternative medicine, bees, Eddie Vedder... and the list goes on. You really need to listen to this one to understand what it, in fact, is.
For Nick & Liz: Pick one that appeals!
