Terms, Left Right and Centre, Norm MacDonald Live

Oh hi there. This week gets a little bit political but it isn't from Patrick this time. Liz recommends a political thriller radio drama called Terms, Zane gets opinions from all sides of the political divide with Left, Right and Centre and Patrick lightens up the mood with the comedy podcast Norm MacDonald Live. Then it's on to the reviews from last week.


Liz Recommends - Terms

https://www.termspodcast.com/

"On election night, two-term president Oliver Pierce watches in disbelief from the White House as Charles Dunwalke wins a controversial electoral college victory. With only 73 days before Dunwalke’s inauguration, president Pierce makes a secret decision to act, with historic and possibly catastrophic consequences." Yeah it's pretty Trump-esque. And also has a lot to say about how the US system of voting is broken. An excellent radio play style thriller that hits close to home, has excellent acting and knows how to tell a good story.

For both: Start from the start, it's a serial podcast.

Pat Recommends - Norm MacDonald Live

The most unfortunate thing about being Australian for me was that I only ever got exposed to Norm MacDonald through his bit roles in movies amd TV. We never really got SNL or stand up specials on our airwaves, so when I came across this show on YouTube I was like 'Hey it's that drunk guy from Billy Madison, I had no idea he was the funniest person on the planet'. Unfortunately you can no longer view Norm MacDonald Live on YouTube, I think because he has a Netflix show now and Netflix wanted the Norm monopoly. Fortunatley you can find audio versions of this chaotic masterpiece. This show puts Norm and his trusty sidekick Adam Egat (of Queensboro Bridge renown) conducting a casual interview with a famous person, often a comedian. This show, for me, is a breeding ground for my favourite comedic spontaneities.

For Zane & Liz - Pick someone you like. I quite like the Andy Dick, Gilbert Gottfried, Stephen Merchant, and Bob Einstein (god rest him) episodes.

Zane Recommends - Left, Right, and Center

https://www.kcrw.com/news/shows/left-right-center

Politics. Zane both hates and is incredibly compelled by politics, but HATES the idea that he is in an echochamber. Enter, this podcast. Left, Right & Center is KCRW’s weekly civilized yet provocative confrontation over politics, policy and pop culture. Josh Barro, representing the Center, hosts a discussion of the week’s news and issues with thought leaders on the Right and Left, and expert guests. They focus mostly on the big headlines of the week (or the day) with a few minutes put aside for the hosts and guests soapbox moments. This is not a debate podcast, but does value the truth, not just partisan talking points.
