In 2008, Michael Richardson and Carl Hoffman met at a National Guard Armory in Indiana, and neither has been the same since. Their decision to make a podcast together was heavily influenced by beer (for Carl anyway). Mike's stint in radio adds an air of professionalism to the podcast, while Carl's inability to form a coherent sentence brings out the comedic side of the duo. Decidedly unfunny at times, Carl and Mike are your hosts for a podcast about anything, covering topics such as sports, pop & geek culture, technology, current events, our government, the military, and anything else they can think of. If nothing else, their podcast audio is occasionally stellar and Carl sets out to prove Mike wrong about something in every episode. Join them each week for a forced march into the audio annals of comedic history.
