Time To Die, Dead For Filth, The End of the World with Josh Clark

Well we've accidentally done it again; we've themed the week. Somehow we've all ended up recommending podcasts with super bleak titles (but not all bleak content!). Liz recommends Aussie comedy podcast Time to Die, Zane recommends queer film deep dive podcast Dead for Filth, and Nick explores the end of the world with, well, The End of The World with Josh Clark. Then it's on to the reviews of last week's podcasts.

Liz Recommends -

Time To Die

https://www.planetbroadcasting.com/our-shows/time-to-die/

"Time To Die is the unfunniest podcast you’ll ever subscribe to. But that’s kind of the point.

Each episode we match up to two brilliant comedians and ask them to use their comedy powers to write three minutes of the worst stand up they can imagine. Then our guests swap their scripts and go out and present the stand up as if they wrote it themselves… at a real comedy club. The winner is the comic who commits to the bit and gets the most laughs!"

For Both: At time of airing, there are only three eps thanks to COVID19 hitting just as they launched but pick any episode that appeals.

Nick Recommends - The End of the World with Josh Clark

We humans could have a bright future ahead of us that lasts billions of years. But we have to survive the next 200 years first. Join Josh Clark of Stuff You Should Know for a 10-episode deep dive that explores the future of humanity and finds dangers we have never encountered before lurking just ahead. And if we humans are alone in the universe, if we don't survive intelligent life dies out with us too.

Zane Recommends - Dead for Filth

Zane loves movies, but hesitates to listen to many film podcasts, let alone recommend them, but this listener submission is one of the exceptions. From the ooky spooky mind of horror personality and screenwriter, Michael Varrati, comes the June Gloom Productions original Podcast "Dead For Filth", for all things queer horror and beyond. Dead For Filth will bring you the best queer & horror icons out of the closet and into the night to talk about the genre they love.

For Both: Pick any episode that appeals
