What's spinning...comedy bang! bang!


one of my all-time favorite podcasts, the hilarious “Comedy Bang! Bang!,” has just celebrated its ten year anniversary. hosted by expert improviser and comedian Scott Aukerman, this two part…TEN HOUR episode is a great window into the lunacy of this crazy podcast. Check out Scott’s crazy cast of characters, he interviews about 40 of them in these these episodes. guests include Jason Mantzoukas, Andy Daly, Paul F. Tompkins, Seth Morris, Jon Hamm, Paul Scheer, Thomas Lennon, Adam Scott, Nick Kroll, Weird Al, Paul Rust, Haratio Sanz and TONS more!

if you’re further interested, there is a great Forbes interview with Scott Aukerman regarding the anniversary episodes and podcasting in general. really funny and interesting!

what's spinning...are you talkin' r.e.m. re: me?

R.E.M. is a band that I have loved since I was a kid and still find their music in heavy rotation while at my workbench. So I love this hilarious R.E.M retrospective podcast hosted by Comedy Bang Bang’s Scott Aukerman and actor Adam Scott (Step Brothers, The Good Place, Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies…etc.) Together they’ve gone through R.E.M’s extensive discography with many, many, many hysterical side-stories peppered in. They also have a great roster of funny guest…today’s was R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills.

If you’re a fan, they also host a U2 podcast that is a must-listen, as well.

I’ve listened to every episode at least once…highly recommended!

what's spinning...Radiolab


If your are a fan of all things science…this is the podcast for you.

New York’s WNYC public radio hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich never disappoint with this fantastically interesting podcast/live show. I have religiously listened to every episode for (I cannot remember how many) years. Every single one is a diamond…perfect.

I will not recommend an episode, they are all super-informative and super-engrossing. Take a deep-dive into their extensive archive and you will surely want to subscribe to their weekly feed.

What's spinning...In Voorhees We Trust With Gourley And Rust


If you’re a podcast listener and of a certain age, like me, I recommend this hilarious Friday the 13th schlock-movie franchise retrospective. The hosts are podcast pros Matt Gourley and Paul Rust (a fellow Iowan) who are comedy-improv artists and experts(?) on the Friday the 13th movie series. This is just funny and a welcome diversion when you need a little comic break from real, well, daily horror…

You may know Paul Rust as a producer, writer, and central character on the Netflix show Love, and a bunch of other great stuff. And Matt Gourley is a member of the SuperEgo improv cast of characters and another thousand things including podcasts, TV and on and on and on. Google them yourself, I’ve got jewelry to make. If you’re a fan of comedy podcasts you know these guys.

what's spinning...the current


I’m currently (I mean…come on!) listening to Minnesota public radio’s “The Current” when I need some early morning wake-up tunes. They always offer up an eclectic mix of classic indie/alternative favorites and some forgotten, by me, deep-dives into bands I love.

I am hooked on the Saturday morning show “Teenage Kicks” which focuses in on the era from 70’s punk to 90’s grunge. Plenty of 80’s alternative…my guilty-pleasure decade genre favorite. Example…in the last half hour I’ve heard Nico Case, Pixies, Weezer, and Husker Du.

They’ve got a great app to check out, as well.
