Review: Angry & Cliff

Angry and Cliff is a comedy podcast hosted by the British duo and released very week.

Every episode features performances from independent artists that would otherwise exist only in the moment. I love that this podcast exists. Yes, it’s niche, and […]

WTF just happened?

I’m not usually one for trashy “yo slept with ma huzband” crap on radio, but the call on episode 142 of the Paul and Rach podcast had me transfixed. It all started with a segment where hosts Paul Murray & Rachel Corbett discussed those people in our lives that we wish we didn’t have to […]

Podwatch #9

Review: Break A Leg (video; comedy) I’ve been thinking a bit about the format of Podwatch, and have decided it would be best to release these as one review per episode. That way, you don’t have do download a review about something you’re not interested in, and I can release multiple episodes a week to spread […]
