Who says the golden age of radio is dead? I’m amazed at the depth and breadth of radio these days and I’m blessed to have cabbing force me to explore these depths during long shifts.
My latest find is a wacky but great show from Simpsons voice actor Harry Shearer. You’ll recognize his voice instantly.
It’s difficult to summarize, but imagine a mix between the Daily Show, Colbert Report, SNL and the Onion with a cogent editorial voice similar to an anti-Rush Limbaugh. He tackles serious subjects like the inability of FEMA to sort out disasters and also the silly (but funny) with the ‘Apologies of the Week’ section featuring some great background music. It’s worth a listen.
I listen to it on 91.7 KALW Sundays at noon.
I just gave the le Show podcast a try today, good stuff!
Glad you liked it! It is an odd format. He does stretch things out a bit with long musical interludes. I’m not sure if I like those so much, but I guess it does create a cool mood. But, the rest of the content definitely makes up for its weirdness.
