It's a maaaaadhouse!
This is one of a few occasions when I've had the reaction, "[name of hilarious comedian] is going to start a podcast?! Well, that's obviously going to be great." But you don't have to be a comedy/podcast enthusiast to see that people like Todd Glass, Greg Proops, Tig Notaro, and now Dana Gould are perfect for this medium (although not exclusively--note to Hollywood: give them all tv shows and movie deals too.)
This first episode is hilarious, and impressively cohesive and formed right from the start. I love the standup-style riffing on subjects that are serious, genuine, and often dark. It's what makes Dana Gould (and guest Eddie Pepitone) such great comics. It's edited at a very listenable pace, a few funny skits dropped in between segments. The presentation is profesional and smooth, eliminating all the unnecessary pretense and just putting on an excellent show. Strongly recommended! I'm so glad that this exists.
I am elated that Dana Gould has embraced podcasting. The first show was an amazing treat. I loved the format of conversation mixed with bits and the participation of the supporting cast. I just wish I could have been in the same room to experience the comedic interaction first hand. I highly recommend this podcast and can't wait for the next one!
What a treat
This is a new heavy weight in the comedy podcast arena. Beautifully produced, taking full advantage of the medium, employing a delightfully unpredictable format. And if you're a comedy fan, you already know that Dana Gould is funnier than God. This podcast is worth one hundred dollars an episode, but hopefully they'll never catch on and it will always be free and void of commercials. I love you, Dana Gould!
