    ehhh you and me have a much different opinion on what the phrase "gigantic douchebag" entails...

    clay travis is a gigantic douchebag... clay travis doesn't have a genuine bone in his body

    joe rogan is like the exact opposite of that. he always means well

    Thoughts on what I dislike, fwiw:

    - WTF with Marc Maron: wildly popular, but completely put me off after three episodes because Marc is constantly interrupting and leading the discussion by finishing the guests' sentences. Interruption absolutely pisses me off...I tune in to hear the interviewee, and in cases such as political shows interruption is an obvious derailment and an admittance that the interviewer is losing. Miles Gray does nearly the same thing on The Daily Zeitgeist, and if I didnt like his delivery or ideas then I'd dump it too, but he's the cohost rather than the lead so it's both limited and tolerable.

    Comedy Bang Bang and literally anything with Scott Aukerman: SA is one of those comics who is constantly trying to be "on" and never shuts up, and eventually just comes across as the frat boy clown who tries to monopolize every interaction.

    I know I'm at risk of coming off like a "I liked it before it was cool" hipster here, but whatever. WTF, and more specifically Marc in general, was a lot different early on. For a long time it was by far my favorite pod. And it was actually the podcast that got me into podcasts.

    Early on it was just low self-esteem Marc ranting for a minute then talking to his comedy buddies. That **** was FANTASTIC. Then it started picking up steam and he was getting higher profile guests like Dave Grohl and Conan O'Brien. EVEN BETTER. But as the show grew so did Marc's head (and his knack for interrupting). It became more and more about Marc himself. Very self-indulgent. Landing Obama was pretty much the nail in the coffin in that regard. It's around that time I basically stopped listening. I have to really, really, really be a fan of his guest to listen these days.

    Also, completely agree on Comedy Bang Bang.

    I know his history casts are great, but I haven't aopted them because they're too damn long.

    I am very sad that his Common Sense one stopped. After 312 episodes of pushing for an outsider candidate, he was horrified to see that his wish was granted in the form of trump and basically shut himself down in shame. It's too bad because I always found his takes to be much more insightful than any of the cable news/talk show talking heads.

    He does a common sense every few months.

    I have to wait for the entire history series to release because the time between episodes I'll completely forget the previous one.

    I really wanted to love that one. But they are constantly trying to out-joke each other and it gets to be a bit much. I just don't find them nearly as funny as they seem to find themselves. A shame because I'm really into true crime stuff.

    If you like Ron Burgundy, his new podcast is amazing. I have no idea how people who do it with them don't bust out laughing.

    So far, my favs have been:
    Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend
    The Ron Burgundy Podcast

    Some which are hit and miss so far:
    The Bill Simmons Podcast
    The Cracked Podcast
    Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast
    Pardon My Take
    Stuff They Don't Want You To Know

    I've tried a few others but nothing worth sharing yet.

    Another one that's fun but bizarre is Everything Is Alive. ... It's a series of short one-on-one interviews with inanimate objects such as a towel, a can of soda, a bus bench, a lamppost, etc. ..
