Masters of None show

Masters of NoneJoin Now to Follow

Who is the Greatest Movie Character of All Time? What are the Worst Songs To Get a Lap Dance To? Who is better, Biggie or Tupac, the Red Sox or Yankees? Does Ranch Dressing suck or rule? Former radio guys Mike, Art & Jay debate and answer mankind’s most important questions each week on Masters Of None. Along the way you’ll encounter unsustainable amounts of movie quotes, horribly tasteless jokes, TV references, offensive comments, old radio bits, biting insults, tall tales, unsportsmanlike conduct, raping and pillaging of all things pop culture. It’s a comedy podcast that doesn’t suck. Come on in, the water’s tepid.

Nerd Hurdles show

Nerd HurdlesJoin Now to Follow

Nerd Hurdles is a podcast. Chances are if you’re here, you know that already. But just in case you got sent here by Google or a link sent to you by someone in your office, Nerd Hurdles is a podcast about things nerds like. Things that regular people (”normals”) scoff at or outright shun. We discuss these things in a generally humorous and vaguely intelligent way. Or is that intelligible? It might be neither intelligent nor intelligible.<br> <br> Jakob and Mandi discuss all manner and forms of nerdery and geekery and what makes them magnificent and tragic. This weekly epic explored the depths of what fandoms mean to their fans. Sacred cows of the scifi, fantasy, comic book and any other genre that makes the general public squirm with discomfort get the irreverent Nerd Hurdles treatment (and nerdy love).
