Join host Scott Aukerman ("Comedy Bang! Bang!" on IFC, "Mr. Show") for a weekly podcast that blends conversation and character work from today's funniest comedians. While Scott begins by traditionally interviewing the celebrities, the open-door policy means an assortment of eccentric oddballs can pop by at any moment to chat, compete in games, and engage in comic revelry. With all that, and regular bonus episodes, we bet your favorite part will still be the plugs!

What is the dumbest show you can imagine? This award-winning show may be dumber. It has no content. No format. Yet it's going on ten years of delighting hundreds of thousands of people. It's been an iTunes editors choice, and Rolling Stone picked it as one of the world's best comedy podcasts. It's light in the dark, comfort in the cold and a penguin in the pants (long story). Join hosts Jesse Thorn (NPR's Bullseye) and Jordan Morris (Comedy Central's @Midnight) and a celebrity guest on a raucous, vulgar and warm-hearted romp that will probably leave you a better person. And will certainly make you dumber.
Every episode Jake takes a deep dive into why he's the perfect human specimen to be the next human to go to space. Or he invites a friend on and they just talk about whatever.

Two good friends from Australia are making a podcast that channels the mess of thoughts and ideas they've always talked about into ~45 minutes of interesting and humorous entertainment.
A logical fallacy is an argument or claim that isn't logical. They typically either appeal to the audience's emotions or work to distract the audience from the facts of the matter. You probably use them to persuade people all the time without even realizing it. However, we're setting out to change that with Ad Hominem, a game made to teach logical fallacies with absurd examples. The creator of the game, Joel Holland, invites his friend, Austin on to play, and let you, the listeners, be the judge of who wins.
