A podcast about Adventure Time, except we're not two fanboys. Well, one of us is a fanboy, but the other has never seen the show. Pat, the fanboy, has seen every episode multiple times. On Podventure Time he forces Ben, who has never before seen the show, to watch two episodes a week. Then they discuss them in detail, and see whether Ben likes them.

Engaging, if supremely weird
So, two guys who've known each other since they were little kids, both savvy consumers of pop culture—Pat, the Adventure Time with Finn and Jake super-fan, and Ben, who's never seen an episode. The experiment tests whether Ben's enthusiasm for the show will match Pat's, with Pat as Ben's guide, a sort Don Juan to Ben's Carlos Castaneda, an apt comparison, since the podcast does have a sort of peyote vibe to it. The discussions span the range from animation style, to character development, to metaphorical commentary on ageism and class warfare.
I personally have never seen an episode of Adventure Time, and I may never, but this podcast is on my must-hear list. If you're an AT fan it should be on yours, too.
The podcast is a great way to help you uncover missed jokes and social commentary from AT episodes. Plus it's fun to "see" it through the eyes of a new viewer. I look forward to seeing where this journey takes us.
Come for Adventure Time, stay for the Metaverse Theory
I love Adventure Time but it is such a weird show to get other people into. As somebody who has a really hard time getting others into his weird shows, the premise of Pat getting Ben into the show definitely appeals to me. It has been fun watching Ben's opinion on the show change throughout.
I initially wasn't on board with Ben's dream metaverse theory but now I'm totally in on it and it's a great take on the Land of Ooo and all the weird happenings going on there.
