Pocket cast does .1 at a time. Tried 1.5 and it is hilarious. 1.2 isn't bad at all. Speech sounds fine but pauses actually are weird.

On the same settings page is an option to trim silences. Not sure how that would work.

Trivial Warfare had a video game themed episode on August 19th. I want Danny to listen, I think he will do well, or at least better than me.

Podcast Go has the same thing. It's mostly meant for if the presenter mutes their mic, the program senses there is no audio and will skip that. I'm not sure how big the gap has to be for it work.

I listened to this episode. I didn't keep score. I knew some of them, some I should have known, and a lot I had no clue.

I was happy with my results on the midpoint quote question. I'm sure you got all but one as well, missed Bad Dudes.

I wouldn't say it completely got Bad Dudes. I thought it was called Two Bad Dudes. I didn't get the Duke Nukem 3D one, but I award myself points for knowing it was from They Live.

Nice! I'm going to start listening to his other podcast. Twice a week, and he just talks about weird things/people/objects. Only 10 min long.

I've heard him advertise it and heard it advertised on other How Stuff Works affiliated podcasts. If it's only 10-15 minutes, then I'll add it to my list.

Recently added
Last Podcast on the Left: Three dudes get together and talk about random horror, supernatural, or gruesome topics. This podcast can be quite offensive which doesn't bother me but should be noted. Each episode is around 30-45 minutes.
No Sleep: Tales from the r/nosleep. May have mentioned listening to this before but I stopped for awhile.

Danny, I had Jocelyn listen to some Cracked and she liked it. Cherry picking topics that we like though.

Podcasts make road trips fun!

Safe for them? Spooky, but not gory or cursing?

Most of it isn't spooky at all. Just weird stories that are past from folk-lore.

Stories of mistaken identity, people disappearing, rocks falling from the sky

Conan O'Brien is launching a podcast in November called "Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend" for Earwolf

After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him.

Over the years and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never made a real and lasting friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he started a podcast to do just that.

Deeper, unboundedly playful, and free from FCC regulations, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is a weekly opportunity for Conan to hang out with the people he enjoys most and perhaps find some real friendship along the way.

Earwolf is such a huge network. I've listened to 3-4 random podcasts over the years to learn they were in the Earwolf network.

I'd be curious what my stats are. Too bad I use the basic apple podcasts app.

Corey, why did you switch apps in July?!?!

I see you have intro skips on. Do you think it ever skips any non-intro parts?
