Podcast Rollcall: Comedy and Everything Else

Genre: Comedy, Politics

What It's About: Comedians discuss various aspects of comedy - such as the road, clubs, and fellow comedians; they also delve into politics, finances, religion, and the upbringing of future generations. Think Real Time with Bill Maher, but more conversational.

Why You Should Care: Hosts Jimmy Dore and Stefane Zamorano effectively create the atmosphere of spending time with friends. And as when you're with friends, the conversation is interesting, but especially full of laughs. Dore loads the show with clips, enhancing the points he's making. The rough-around-the-edges aesthetic adds to its charm. The episodes are long, so you want to make sure you have a lot of time carved out to listen... in which case, you're always left wishing it were longer.

Frequency: Weekly

Average Length: Two and a half hours

As always, if you become a regular listener to a podcast that solicits donations, try to find a way to make the occasional contribution.
