Get ready for recommendations and reviews coming at you! Zane brings inanimate objects to live with Everything Is Alive, Liz takes you back to school, musical-style with Loveville High and Patrick gets back to his comedy roots with Mixed Mental Arts. Then the trio reviews their selections from last week.
Liz Recommends - Loveville High
Imagine that your fave 90s teen movies ramped up the camp factor and added a musical score. That's pretty much Loveville High. "LOVEVILLE HIGH is a 9-part musical podcast series! Each ten-minute episode is a self-contained love story in the fictional town of Loveville, Ohio on prom night. New love, old love, romantic love, friend love, gay and straight, cis and genderqueer."
This musical podcast has a book and lyrics by David Zellnick (Yank!) and music by Eric Svejcar (Peter Pan Jr)
For both: This is a serial podcast so start at the start and listen to as many as you wish.
Pat Recommends - Mixed Mental Arts
Is hosted by comedian, actor, and writer Bryan Callen and Hunter Maats (the other guy). No I kid. Hunter is largely the reason I listened to this podcast. He's a plethora of interesting takes and titbits. This show is on hiatus, and with something new brewing behind the scenes so who knows what format it'll take next. The format it largely stuck to for 300 something episodes was conversations with a range of guests such as authors, comedians, actors, doctors, entrepreneurs, Mixed Martial Arts fighters, journalists, nutritionists, musicians, porn stars and video game developers.
For Zane & Liz: Pick your poison
Zane Recommends - Everything is Alive
Zane is finally showing his true colours and bring another improvised comedy podcast to the table! Everything is Alive is an unscripted interview show in which all the subjects are inanimate objects. In each episode, a different thing tells us its life story - and everything it says is true. Produced by NPR veteran Ian Chillag, Everything Is alive has a very serious tone, with very silly subject matter.
For Pat: Pick one that amuses you!
For Liz: Pick one that amuses you!
