The Top Four Podcasts You Needed To Listen To In 2013

31 Dec

NOTE: Subscribe to these bad boys

1. Modern Day Philosophers with Danny Lobell – The former Comical Radio host breaks free from the terrestrial radio shtick and focuses on what he does best, getting the guard down of hilarious comedians to let them spew their hilarious thoughts. A mish-mash of friends and famous comedians wax philosophic; especially enjoyable is the Fred Stoller episode, who comes in rare form. A treat for all NYC comic fans. By far the greatest find of 2013

2. Four Eyes and a Beard – The so-called ‘afterthoughts’ of far more subscribed-to podcasts The Nerdist and Smodcast, Matt Mira and Scott Mosier originally decided they needed to get to know each other and decided hosting a podcast togetherwas the best way to do that. The listener is lucky they decided this route was the one to travel. The most recent episode involved them doing their best Mystery Science 3000 on Beverly Hills Cops 3, and succeeding to the point that one doesn’t even need to fire the movie itself. The two eclipse the heights of the podcasts from whence they came, and this not-so-humble reviewer is grateful for it.

3. War Rocket Ajax – A podcast about comics, but not really. Matt Wilson and Chris Sims, of the terrific Comics Alliance, discuss way too much wrestling, not enough comics, and have incredible ‘interviews’ that devolve into inside jokes, faux-humor and genuine love for all that is good with superheroes. A must-listen is their discussion with Chris Roberson and Dennis Culver, masterminds behind one of the best comics you’ve also never heard of, Edison Rex.

4. What Say You? – Imagine if there were two guys named Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano whom have known each other their entire lives, are part of a ridiculously funny television program called Impractical Jokers (on the Tru TV network of all places!) and whose rapport is genuinely intoxicating, and then they up and decided to get down to business and start a podcast? Oh, that’s this thing. Between talking about whether having sex with an 11 out of 10 body with the head of Ted Williams and regaling the listener with the history of Dick Lewis, the two guys bring it the goods. Every freakin’ episode.

What, you wanted more? I’m a busy man, jerks.
