Sharks Gameday: Podcasts

Make sure you CATCH these great podcasts! - Dilip Vishwanat

Too much turkey, too much stuffing. Here are some podcast recommendations.

Is anyone reading this?

It's the day after Thanksgiving, and the Sharks are playing an afternoon game. We barely have any readers on a regular weekend, so I'm willing to bet that today is going to be pretty damn light.

It's kind of a shame, I guess, because this game against the Blues is a huge one. The Blues are one of the Golden Five, a term I just made up to refer to the five Western Conference powers that lead the league in goodness according to advanced statistics. The Kings are another one, and the game on Wednesday night against them was one of the most entertaining of the season for the Sharks.

So it's going to be really interesting to see how the Sharks do against the Blues, but most of us will probably be too groggy to really pay attention to the game, right? And who is going to be awake early enough to read this post before the game starts?

Oh, I guess people might be Black Friday shopping or something? Seriously? Do people still do that? But...but the Internet exists!

Well anyways, here is a list of my five favorite podcasts. You should check them out over the holiday weekend, put them on your MP3 device, and listen to them while you're driving home from Kansas or whatever dumb place your parents live. I'll also include a recommendation of where to start, so you can try out an episode to see if you like the show.

#5 Go Bayside

What it is: A standup comedian invites her comedian friends to her apartment to watch an episode of "Saved by the Bell" and then they talk about how insane and dumb it is.

Where to start: I only recently got into this podcast, and it was the episode with Paul F. Tompkins that converted me. He had never seen the show before, and was horrified by how bad it was.

#4 Doug Loves Movies

What it is: A standup comedian invites his comedian friends on to talk about movies and then play movie trivia games.

Where to start: The episodes vary in quality depending on the guests, but anything with "Werner Herzog" is a lot of fun.

#3 H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast

What it is: Two guys go through every story H.P. Lovecraft ever wrote and summarize and analyze them, with selections read aloud and creepy background music.

Where to start: They're all good, but "The Picture in the House" is a wonderful discussion of one of my favorite stories.

#2 Inside Jobs

What it is: Three guys with various and questionable qualifications discuss popular conspiracy theories and make jokes. I would like this podcast a lot even if I hadn't come up with the name for it and suggested it to the dudes on Twitter, but I did totally do that so I like it even more.

Where to start: Listen to episode seven if you want to find out what really happened to the Lindbergh Baby.

#1 Jordan, Jessie GO!

What it is: Guys talking about things in a funny way, usually with a comedian of some kind as a guest. I know that's basically a description of ninety percent of podcasts, but this one is REALLY good.

Where to start: Episode 280: Trojan Horse. You'll know why when it happens.



Prediction: Leftovers for days.

Video Gamery: No One Lives Forever! A fun and innovative spy FPS with a great sense of humor. Here's a video of a battle against a bunch of ninjas in a trailer park that's being hit by a tornado.
