Critical 5 Podcast Roundup: end of summer edition, Sept. 3-10
Funny, insightful, and sure to put you in a good mood, these podcast episodes are perfect company for a one of the last lazy summer afternoons of the year -- or just a long lunch.
Host Erin McGathy serves up her usual mixture of wit, self-deprication, and painful honesty with the help of guest, Colin Hanks (Best known for Orange County, Band of Brothers, and being Tom Hanks' son). Hanks discusses his aversion to casual sex, finding his "white tiger," and the tenets of Colintology.
This episode is the second in a bundle of episodes Pete has dubbed the "Lazy Summer Series." Holmes and guest Taylor Williamson (Last Comic Standing) kick back and make it very weird on the topics of penis size, Log Cabin Republicans, being mistaken for gay, and what happens when you die. Williamson proves to be a perfect YMIW guest and Pete finds more than one opportunity to slip in some of his favorite impressions.
Hosts Sarah Dowdey and Deblina Chakraborty celebrate Labor Day with some labor related history with an episode that will make you grateful not to live in the 1920s. The story of The Radium Girls, a group of women employed to apply radium-treated paints to various products starting in 1917, is a reminder of how far we've come in securing worker's rights and might just help to put your own crappy job into perspective.
This week on WTF, comedian Nate Bargatze brings a southern vibe to the cat ranch in this hilarious, insightful, and sometimes silly installment. If you don't know Nate Bargatze now, you will be the end of this episode as he and Marc share their thoughts on southern snake wrangling, religious life, being the son of a magician, and buying bad acid. Make sure to tune in, if not for the comedy then just to spend an hour listening to Bargatze's calming Tennesse twang.
This week, Duncan shares brainwaves with comedian Chelsea Peretti ( The Sarah Silverman Show, Louie, Parks and Recreation ) for this hilarious, upbeat, and wildly weird episode of Duncan's already zany podcast. The pair discuss the path to spirituality, the trend of realism in comedy, and how hard it is to find someone you actually want to date.
Check back each Monday for a new Critical 5 podcast roundup.
