New Podcasts: Guilty Pleasure Movies, Why a Joke is Funny, and More

Posted on March 6, 2017 at 3:34 pm

I love podcasts so much I sometimes wish I had more places to drive to. Some I am especially enjoying right now:

Jesse David Fox hosts “Good One,” with each episode a discussion of one joke with the comic who wrote it. Guests include Jim Gaffigan, Kristen Schaal, and Neil Brennan.

Homecoming is an immersive audio mystery drama with sound effects, like in the old days of radio, starring Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener, David Schwimmer, and David Cross.

Defend Your Movie allows its guest to argue in favor of a movie they think is unappreciated. Movies covered so far include “Speed,” “Cocktail,” and “Gotcha!”
