The AV Club: Podmass February 2-8

The A.V. Club offered up another strong batch of winning podcast episodes in their latest Podmass post. And, let's try to accept that Charlie Sheen hasn't completely destroyed our collective ability to use the term "winning." Or maybe he has. Pete Holmes continues to carve out a nice piece of the podcasting pie for himself with his weekly You Made It Weird. His show pulled off the WTF double dip this week. Here are the comedy episodes making the cut from the latest Podmass offering

Mike & Tom Eat Snacks Moves To Nerdist

The irreverant and thorougly silly snack-riffic show, Mike and Tom Eat Snacks is now calling The Nerdist Network home. Last week's hershey kiss episode marked the first new show on the Chris Hardwick operated network. The show had been missing-in-action for over a month. No word yet on what the network shift might mean to the show. Suffice to say, the real question is how many new snacks are left for Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh to argue about.

The AV Club: Podmass October 20-26

Another week. Another podcast round-up. ...okay, it's not like there are a zillion of these, so I'll stop being a jerk about passing along one group's picks for their favorite podcast episodes.

The A.V. Club continues to demonstrate their ability to employ A LOT of people, albeit smart and talented people. Thankfully all of those people listen to a lot of podcasts. Which means we get another substantial Podmass recap post. Again, the familiar comedy shows occupy much of the word count. So, there - non-comedic shows. Gauntlet thrown. The A.V. Club intros Alec Baldwin's new radio show/podcast, Here's The Thing, highlights two Moshe Kasher guested plops and praises two episodes of The Nerdist - giving it the rare double dip selection for both its released episodes. Let's call this a "Maron."

Also, I'd like to admit my present and future boycotting of repeating The A.V. Club's selection of Tom Scharpling's twice monthly clip show, Best Show Gems. Sure, it's comedy - typically great stuff - but it's still a clip show culled from several episodes from the longer actual show, Best Show on WFMU. It's comedy cheating. Either the Best Show on WFMU has a good episode or it doesn't. You're not allowed to combine clips and call it a new show and get me to go along with it. At least not for "best of the week" accolades. Enough ineffectual ranting. On to the chosen Podmass comedy shows:

The Bugle #169 "Captain Crazy Corks It"
Doug Loves Movies - Matt Besser, Rob Huebel, Moshe Kasher
How Was Your Week? #33 “Pondering Tonya” - Martha Plimpton
Judge John Hodgman #38 "Pepperoni Pauper"
Mike & Tom Eat Snacks #39 "Banana Cream Pie"
The Nerdist #134 - John Hodgman
The Nerdist #135 - T.J. Miller
Never Not Funny #921 - Moshe Kasher
Risk! #302 "New At This"
Sklarbro Country #65 "Gumballs To The Wall" - Andy Kindler, Jason Nash
The Smartest Man In The World "Ships"
Uhh Yeah Dude #294
Walking The Room #74 "Larry Omaha and Shia LaBoofed"

Plop of The Week: The Bugle

Our favorite comedy show/episode submitted to this week's Splitsider Week In Comedy Podcasts is The Bugle's rapid-fire Qaddafi riffing session offered up by comedians John Oliver and Andy Zaltman. The recap:

Man, every week, The Bugle could easily be the podcast pick. It’s that good. That consistent. The Bugle receives bonus points for its stick-it-to-the-man credentials. Basically hosts John Oliver (Daily Show hero supreme) and Andy Zaltman take turns being bad ass. The latest edition of Oliver and Zaltman political satire features a spirited “F*ck-You-Logizing” of Qaddafi, the recently deceased and deposed Libyan leader. Zaltman wonders when the “unconfirmed reports” will cease. There’s excitement for Elton John’s newest Qaddafi rendition of “Candle In The Wind.” Oliver recaps all of Qaddafi’s Bond villain traits. The guys question whether the “International Society of Fugitives” will downgrade Qaddafi’s final sewage pipe hideout. Oliver proposes the glory of the inevitable Qaddafi final-hideout-turned-tourist-attraction, complete with sewage pipe themed trinkets for kids. Zaltman also gleefully reads off taunting RIP tweets from other despots. Coming off his recent stand-up appearance in Orlando, Oliver also intros the show with an enthused takedown of the kids’ paradise. This includes Oliver’s joy/sadness at witnessing zombie smoking breaks at the Halloweened-out Universal Studios. The guys also squeeze in a quick UK-sports news round-up (AKA dumping on the French). Another week, another inspiring rapid-fire session of Oliver and Zaltman’s savage and breezy comedy.

Making It with Riki Lindhome #15 - Ben Schwartz
The Nerdist #134 - John Hodgman
