I'm a Podcastin' Fool

First, thanks to everyone who's shared their comments on my inaugural effort - yes, I will need to get a better microphone (or learn how to use Audacity), but just wait a few months...

...but while you're waiting, why not check out one of these finer podcasts, by people who actually know what they're doing.

First, as always, is Podcrapular - even though Andy is on location in Vegas (I think he's undercover as a showgirl, or something), it's still funny as get out. Please show Golfwidow your blogger love and listen.

Through them, I now truly believe that Food is Not Love - it's a podcast about all sorts of cool stuff (check out their episode featuring Ed Brubacker, or David Mack), but it's also fun. In this recent episode, one co-host featured recordings of his 8 year old nephew talking smack about Brangelina's kids. (Remember: children + profanity = comedy gold) It's like eavesdropping on two friends who share similar interests...only they've recorded it for your pleasure. Plus, his female co-host is kind of cute. At least, her accent's cute.

On the strictly-comics related tip, check out I Read Comics - it's one of my definite must-listens. As a white male, I really appreciate the fact that Lene (the hostess) provides a much needed, much different perspective...and it's done in a straightforward manner. For those of you who are going to complain about it being "feminist" or "high strung", let me say this - I came across another comics related podcast (whose URL I conveniently lost) consisting of two guys who were joking about the "rape potential" of various Justice League members. Compared to that, IRC is a pleasant diversion...and a well-needed perspective.

(Plus, Lene co-hosts another podcast focusing on William Shatner. Suggestion: if you get really desperate for material, watch and review the Columbo episode which features Shatner. Disc One, Columbo - The Complete Sixth and Seventh Seasons I defy you not to think "bad hair day".)

Finally, for the Doctor Who fans out there, there's Doctor Who: Podshock. Two Americans. One Brit. Doctor Who. It is devastingly awesome. It will change your life. I guarantee it.

(Oh, and Roger? To belatedly answer your question about my ideal woman - here she is. Classy, intelligent, and won't take guff from nobody).

Thanks for the shoutout.

I always liked Miss Parker on The Pretender because she sort of reminded me of Mrs. Peel.
