Jocelyn and I started the Jonestown 5 parter from Last Podcast on the Left. Starts with episode 300, as it's an older one.

Will take us awhile to finish it since we just listen for 20 minute sections while in the car and we don't have any long trips coming up. These guys are funny and informative.

Is their typical structure for 2 guys to research the topic and the 3rd one stays dumb to ask questions? Or do they all research and someone just plays dumb?

So the third dumb guy does a lot more of the management of the podcasts and helped to organize most of the Last Podcast affiliations. He also has a greater role in their actual shows. Marcus and Henry do almost all of the reading/research, while Marcus is definitely the top mind of the research.

Dumb guy also does a separate podcast that he's more passionate about called Abe Lincoln's top hat, where he tries to do objective political discussions.

Quick Question with Soren and Dan. It's basically Soren Bowie and Dan O'Brien, both formally of Cracked, talk to each other for about an hour. They ask each other various questions. This is fun if you liked the Cracked After Hours video series.

I am loving Reply All. I talked about an amazing2 part story hereand I listened to another one over the weekend that was so good.
The SnapChat Thief
https://gimletmedia.com/shows/reply-all/v4he6k

The show does "super tech support" where the nerds try to figure out problems for the listeners. This one was about a girls snapchat being hacked. They go deep into how it happened, the kind of people that hack accounts, why the hack them, how they sell them on ogusernames.com, and even got the hacker on the phone and talked to him. it was soooo interesting. Really scary too how easily hackers can get into your stuff, especially since they can just call your cell phone provider and take your phone number and just reset your account. HIGHLY recommend this episode.

Elijah Wood was a guest start of the episode of NoSleep that I listened to today. S13E01. Was pretty interesting. He played the singer for a metal band called 'Blood of Isaac', and talked about how they got their name after a serial killer named 'Isaac', who drank blood of victims that his cult followers gathered for him.

But then weird things started happening after their last show.... SPOOKY.

Was listening to the most recent Last Podcast on the Left, and they covered this story. It's a bit long, but this is a ride, read it:

This needs to be made into a documentary! I will have to listen to this story.

I've been enjoying Reply All A LOT. They did a whole episode on pizza rat (this is an old episode) and other NY viral rat videos and how it all might have been done by one crazy masked rat trainer who calls herself Zardulu

I heard Last podcast on left is exclusive to Spotify now. Is this true?

Correct. Kind of throws off my podcast mojo as I would cycle an few back log episodes between stuff I'm up-to-date on.

Crazy. Do you need to be a paid Spotify user to listen?

It is, I'll probably stop listening because of it. Unless I can direct it to their stream
