You've made a wise choice.

 

Love him. Not afraid to talk politics and tell ya how it is.

Sounds like he's qualified to be President. :lol:

 

He didn't really like either candidate so he just hates on both.

Oh I'm aware, and this next comment is less about politics and more about the way Bill Burr comments on them on his podcast...

 

I get that he doesn't like picking a side, but he goes OVER the top to make sure that after he bashes Trump, he says something about Hilary to make it seem "fair". Now during the election, fine. But when he's commenting on crazy s*** that Trump does NOW, I don't get why he STILL feels the need to say "But then again, Hilary was crazy too". Like...the race is over. You can stop trying to rationalize terrible things Trump does by saying the other choice wouldn't have been much better. The other choice is gone. Trump isn't being compared against her anymore. He's being compared against past presidents.

 

Anyway, just annoys me that he still feels the need to make it seem like he's down the middle, when just saying you don't like the president's actions doesn't mean your are suddenly a Democrat.

Started listening to Bill Burr everyday at work...soooo funny.

 

He's funny but also super logical. I wish more people thought the way he does.

Been listening to the Daily from the New York Times each morning getting ready for work. Usually about 20 minutes, nice little bite to start off the day.

This is oddly fascinating. Too bad there probably won't be any closure in the end.

Burr is great, but I kind of tired of his solo podcast. He's always good as a guest.

 

Not sure if they're available anywhere (pretty sure I listened on YouTube), but there are some really funny Opie & Anthony shows with Burr & Patrice O'Neal. Patrice O'Neal was an all time ball buster.

 

I listened to several "My Dad Wrote a Porno." Pretty funny. It's not top of the rotation for me, but I'll check back in when I need some pod.

Latest Serial Podcast came out yesterday, all episodes released at once. "S-Town" I'm about halfway through, not bad so far.

Does anyone here pay for Podcast?

 

The site that host How Did This Get Made moved all the most popular episodes behind a paywall and I am debating myself on whether or not if I should pay for them?

I would never pay for a podcast. There is too much free content out there for me to take that leap.

Hmmm. I was totally engrossed by Season 1. Season 2 was ok, but I couldn't finish it. Didn't have the same "did he or didn't he" approach. I hope S3 is back to some sort of mystery or investigation.

Just finished it, it not like season 1, even though at sometimes it seems like it is, and then it turns. Hard to describe but pretty interesting.

I kinda wish S-town and Serial didn't do a big dump of episodes. That was really fun with serial figuring stuff out with everyone. Now it may eventually lead to a " I listened to that as well, where are you at" "oh, not finished yet? Certainly enjoyable" "Yes, enjoyable"

I give it a B-. Too many red herrings at the beginning. Still an entertaining listen about an interesting guy, but the mystery/suspense stuff was unnecessary and it made the ending weak.

 

Not to mention the title doesn't make much sense to me. It's a tangential topic in the grand scheme of the story.

I started listening to "Doughboys." It's 1 to 1.5 hours per episode. It's two guys and a guest reviewing a different chain restaurant each show. I've listened to 9. Surprisingly entertaining after you listen to a few.

The NY Times Daily this morning was something else. Discussing assisted suicide in Canada.

Yeah, every episode was another topic and it never felt like it was "going anywhere" other than telling us about this guy. It was interesting, but they set it up to be like he was going to get answers or figure s*** out and it ended up just being a profile piece.

I was watching the Lakers/Celtics 30 for 30 (good doc by the way), and I saw that there's going to be a 30 for 30 podcast starting this month. Should be worth a listen.

Norm Macdonald's podcast is back. If you're a fan, it's classic Norm. Previous episodes are available as well.

 

First episode of the new season is Norm & David Letterman. I haven't listened yet, but I'm sure it's great.

Up and Vanished. You'll like it if you like weekly episodes and ongoing investigation.
