Oh my God the latest Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project is glorious.  Paul F. Tompkins' Werner Herzog character is the best thing in the world.

Great run so far. I have to imagine that even a bad episode would be something worthwhile.

Update. Did not like it. Seems to be funny if you know the guys and are in the room with them. But as a listener I didn't find anything to amusing or funny. Listened to Saw III and The Purge.

I've thought about trying Andy Daley's show, but I've only seen him play an uptight overly white guy before. I know him as nothing else.

That's the last thing any of his characters are. Most of them are either murderers and/or suicidal and/or Satanism enthusiasts

That's what I thought as well. I know they were first, but We Hate Movies and How Did This Get Made make me laugh a lot more. The hosts just come off as smarmy and aren't as likable as the other two groups.

I'm listening to one of We Hate Movies, and so far I'm not impressed.  It's their Congo episode, and the technical flubs are annoying right off the bat, they don't have pro-grade audio tools.  And they haven't done their homework, they clearly never read Crichton's book.  They're just saying Captain Obvious insults towards the movie.  This is barely a step above  kids ranting into their webcams.  How the hell does this make money?

That's like the fifth episode of an extremely low budget podcast that has 148 episodes. They got the format down later on.

I never really notice audio problems on podcasts, but their live shows are unlistenable.

Making a "good" quality podcast doesn't cost a ton of money these days.  The expenses to host the show and website(optional) might add up if the show gains a good listener base but the idea that you need expensive audio equipment to make it sound decent is not true.  Most people I have guest hosted with are using usb headsets and their shows sound just fine.

I did my research whenever I was doing some lame wrestling podcast that practically nobody listened to.  If you're gonna speak even semi-professionally about a subject, you should know what you're talking about.  Hell, at times they're complaining about things which even the movie clearly explained.  And the audio on that show was indeed at the same quality level as my aforementioned lame wrestling podcasts which we did on Skype and with me using an ancient ten-dollar microphone, which still sounded better than that if one of my teammates did some editing and sweetening work on the track afterwards.  I'm glad that those guys apparently got better with time, cuz they needed to.

Yeah if you're a CBB fan and not listening to that, rectify sharpish. The latest one is just glorious with Daly, Tompkins, Matt Besser and a couple of others.  Latest CBB with Daly is bonkers too, interested to see if they do plan on doing a second part (where surely Daly will have to flip between multiple characters very rapidly)

It truly depends on the topic and focus of the show. How Did This Get Made is one that makes perfect sense not to know the subject too intimately because the average movie goer does little to no research. 

However, if a podcast like Retronauts doesn't know its subject it is much more egregious and would be awful.

Well that feels pointless now. The first episode was amazing. 2 and 3 were hit and miss.

Eh I kinda assumed it'd be a limited run (perhaps they said that in the pilot bit they dropped, can't remember), I don't think he could do too many episodes with the same characters without the jokes running thin and having to come up with a new character every week is a bit much.
Still it's 15ish hours extra free comedy to listen to.  I quite enjoyed 2 as well (yeah 3 was a bit meh) - and again I heartily recommend 4.   Plus 5 is Don Dimello and Marrisa Wompler (plus Jason Mantzoukas which sounds like it could be rather good)

I've been listening to Fatman on Batman from the beginning. I'm probably 16 episodes in. I like it a lot, but have some complaints.

I get that Smith is a smoker, but in the second episode with Walt, you can hear his lighter strike just about every five minutes. It's very distracting, especially when a coughing fit follows things up.

There was also an episode where he was talking about The Dark Knight Rises, and it's said from the beginning that it's going to be a spoiler podcast. And every time he's about to talk about something else in the movie he keeps blurting out that it's a spoiler. Then after a while takes the angry stance of "Fuck you if you're mad about spoilers. You should have known by now what this episode is." ...I think the only thing anyone's mad about is hearing his yell out spoiler every few minutes and getting mad about people that aren't even in the conversation with him.

Otherwise I'm really liking the show thus far.

I'm still liking Andy Daly's show. But seemingly every time a woman appears the show just gets worse.

The No Holds Barred episode of How Did This Get Made is up. Thomas Lennon's Kurt Fuller impression is amazing as is his Hulk.

Best episode in a while, maybe since Halloween III.

The finale of Andy Daly's podcast is one of the best.  Scott Aukerman's attempt at an Irish accent is magical.

Edit: Oh wow, the second half with the Irishmen and limerick contest propels it to the best of the series.

Agreed. Strong episode to end on, especially after two bad ones. He kept saying "season finale." Wonder if it'll come back after some time off

We Hate Movies has quickly become my new favorite podcast thanks to this thread. I'm also really into You Talkin' U2 To Me?!, the encyclopedic and comprehensive podcast about U2 from Adam Scott Aukerman.

I tried listening to U2. I was bored instantly.

 But yeah, We Hate Movies is becoming a fast favorite. Listening to the Godzilla episode and it's great. It segways into an ID4 sequel with Jaden Smith as Lil' General. I laughed out loud at those bits.

Bumping the We Hate Movies thread to point out (unless I'm dumb and it's been this way for a while) that they have all of their episodes available on their site now.  My podcast app only went back to #101 so this is great news.

Bumping to say that the Hardcore History show I mentioned upthread is in the midst of a great series on WWI called Blue for Armageddon. If you have even a slight interest in the period, the episodes are worth a listen.

What would be a good sports podcast for someone who isn't hardcore about any sport, except basketball?

As a means of context, my idea of a perfect "sports" podcast would be somewhere between The Tony Kornheiser Show, and His and Hers, only with less talk about football.

I'm enjoying Aisha Tyler's "Girl On Guy" podcast. Gets her sponsorships out of the way and just chats with her guest for an hour plus. Latest episode had Kristen Schaal. Currently enjoying a past episode with Ryan Stiles.

Say no more: http://podcastone.com/shortcorner?showAllEpisodes=true

Now that's what I'm talkin' about; good lookin' out!

I decided to go back and start from the beginning... I was hooked when Paul Shirley, out of nowhere, just decides to say, "I think, generally, David Stern is a shitty human being," as nonchalantly as if he were talking about the merits of the chest pass. I just started listening to the second episode, and Halpern's theory for what really happened in Eagle, CO is amazing.
