PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Patrick and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) … read more


How Did This Get Made?, Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates and The Rubin Report

It's all happening in episode five, if by all you mean podcasts are getting reviewed. Self-proclaimed Castologists Liz, Zane and Patrick kick off by reviewing last week's first THEMED comedy podcast selections (The Jimmy Dore Show, A Very Fatal Murder and The Film Reroll). Then we scooch on over to this week's also-themed offerings. The theme? Panel discussions! Liz suggests How Did This Get Made, Patrick brings select episodes of the Rubin Report to the table and Zane gets us all thinky with Intelligence Squared Debates. Find us on FACEBOOK, TWITTER or INSTAGRAM. Subscribe to us on ITUNES, STITCHER, SPOTIFY or your podcatcher of choice. (And give us a review, you know you want to).

Liz recommends: How Did This Get Made?

Have you ever seen a movie and thought: "How in the ever-loving fuck did this movie get made?" and yet somehow felt your excitement levels rising at how good/bad this dumpster fire of a film was? Then How Did This Get Made? is gonna be your jam. The panel is most often comprised of actors/comedians Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas but they frequently get their hilarious buddies along to add fuel to their garbage fire of a movie discussions. They watch the flick off-mic, then in the podcast they do a full movie recap and comb through just how shit/excellent the movie really is.

For Pat and Zane: Pretty much any episode that features movies that grab or intrigue you. Personal faves include Con Air, Look Who's Talking Too and Skyscraper.

Pat Recommends - The Rubin Report (Since it sometimes has panel discussions)

The second disaffected liberal in a row. Dave Rubin and this show used to be part of The Young Turks but felt the network was getting a little too crazy for him. So now he hosts his own political news talk show. Dave's format usually involves a monologue at the beginning and then a one on one interview. Dave himself identifies mostly as a classical liberal with libertarian leanings. The Rubin Report can also be viewed rather than simply listened to on YouTube.

For Liz and Zane: a panel show episode so as to align with this theme.

A Bishop and a Rabbi Discuss Religion, the Enlightenment, and Finding Meaning.

Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro: Religion, Trans Activism, and Censorship.

LIVE from OCON: Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Yaron Brook, Greg Salmieri

Zane Recommends - Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates

I love listening to passionate people talk about what they are passionate about. Bonus points if the are erudite and succinct and extra bonus points if it is balanced with those who politely disagree! In a true debate format IQ2US allows listeners to eavesdrop on the brightest minds in journalism today, discussing topics ranging from domestic and foreign policy to cultural trends and technological innovations.

For Liz and Pat: Is Donald Trump Bad for Comedy?
