LA Weekly Makes A Comedy Podcast List

Anthony D'Alessandro helped push comedy podcast into the mind of LA Weekly readers today thanks to his thoughtful recap post in the Arts section. Earwolf shows occupy a bunch of spots. The new Ronna & Beverly show nabbed a spot along with the kinda-sorta podcast from Charles Grodin. Under a certain light, it seems fitting The Apple Sisters and WTF with Marc Maron sit at the top of the Los Angeles list. A performance based retro show born from a live stage show and show focused on big personalities and neurosis. A loosely accurate reflection of the creative personalities in the city. Bonus: all the shows on the Top 10 list have Los Angeles based productions, with the exception of Grodin's show.

10. Who Charted?
9. How Did This Get Made?
8. Charles Grodin
7. Mike Detective
6. Never Not Funny
5. The Pod F. Tompkast
4. Affirmation Nation with Bob Ducca
3. Ronna & Beverly
2. The Apple Sisters
1. WTF with Marc Maron

Check-out the full list and justifications here.
