Podcast Review: Bananaland

Marc Hershon

A lot of comedians lay claim to the label "one of a kind" when it comes to their brand of humor, but few actually deliver. Bob Rubin is one of those w...

Marc Hershon | Posted 07.31.2015 | Entertainment
Marc Hershon

The new media landscape can be a confounding place, with new apps and ways to reach people constantly emerging, shifting, and changing. Who's keeping track of the players making a difference? "Internetainers" Rhett and Link (Rhett McLaughlin and Charles "Link" Neal), and their Ear Biscuits podcast, that's who.

Marc Hershon

I was delighted to discover that The Mild Adventures of Fred Stoller has crept into Podcastland recently. Just three episodes in and the titular comedian/actor/writer (Maybe We'll Have You Back) is proving to be an engaging host as well.

Podcast Review: Hello From The Magic Tavern

Marc Hershon | Posted 07.10.2015 | Entertainment
Marc Hershon

Hello From The Magic Tavern touches on that genre, but the best way to describe the show is that it features characters from a D&D adventure...except they're just hanging out. In a bar. Doing a podcast.

Podcast Review: To The Manor Borne By Robots

Marc Hershon | Posted 06.18.2015 | Entertainment
Marc Hershon

It's great discovering new entries to Podcastland, particularly those that push the boundaries of what we get to hear. While To The Manor Borne By Robots is largely comedy-flavored, it is also by turns social commentary, science fiction, mystery, intrigue, with a helping of noir narrative ladled over the top.

Podcast Review: Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast

Marc Hershon | Posted 05.20.2015 | Entertainment
Marc Hershon

Since starting his Amazing Colossal Podcast ten months and 42 episodes ago, comedian Gilbert Gottfried has played host to a pretty amazing retinue of show biz folk -- including Danny Aiello, David Steinberg, Barbara Felton, Adam West, Frankie Avalon -- the list is mind-boggling.

Podcast Review: The PO'DCast with Dennis Miller & Adam Carolla

Marc Hershon | Posted 04.15.2015 | Entertainment
Marc Hershon

Considering that both of these guys have platforms from which to spew their views, this is like a DC/Marvel comic crossover of legendary proportion. This week was only the second edition of their mashup, and one gets the feeling that the two hosts are politely feeling out the edges of each other's hot buttons.

Marc Hershon

Pauly Shore's back and podcasting's got him...again. This freewheeling comedian -- and scion of The Comedy's Store's owner Mitzi Shore -- recently launched The Pauly Shore Podcast Show as part of the Podcast One network.

Marc Hershon

Each month the show's creators, Alistair Barrie and Nick Revell, stir a pot of lively discussions featuring journalists and comedians. This month it's Hal Cruttenden, Michael Deacon, Jo Jo Smith and first-timer James O'Brien (who normally serves as the host for the show.)

Podcast Review: Bullseye With Jesse Thorn: Chris Rock and John Cleese

Marc Hershon | Posted 02.12.2015 | Entertainment
Marc Hershon

The guests that pass through the portals of Bullseye with Jesse Thorn run the gamut of show business and the conversations can get serious. Still, given the host's comedy connections, no one would debate that his show counts as a comedy podcast.

Marc Hershon | Posted 10.22.2014 | Comedy
Marc Hershon

In the world of comedy podcasts, there are actually very few that talk about how to do comedy. And, while Improv Nerd with Jimmy Carrane isn't an instructional "how to" course about improvisational comedy, there is a lot to be learned -- and some laughs along the way.

Marc Hershon | Posted 09.02.2014 | Comedy

When Marc Maron started the WTF podcast, his guests were mostly friends from the comedy world and some other comedians he didn't know so well. Now that he's passed 500 episodes, he's run through a lot of people.

Ross Luippold

Exciting news: HuffPost Comedy is going to start covering podcasts. What that means, exactly, is partly up to you. Like many fans of comedy, I have come to rely on podcasts as a valuable and enriching part of my humor diet. I first started listening to Jimmy Pardo's "Never Not Funny" around 2007, and it provided a valuable roadmap for tracing the origin and evolution of comedy podcasting.
