As part of my new weekly (fingers crossed) spotlight on my love of podcast I’d like to introduce you to, The Idiots!
Andy Julia and his pack of idiots help get me through days when I wants to throw something or someone off a tall structure. This is a new show for me but one I needed without knowing it was missing.
It reminds me of the Howard Stern show, no filter! Exactly how I like it! I lost track of Howard once he moved to satellite and now too much time has passed. I’m just too busy to keep up. It is what it is.
They tackle topics that range from serious to randomness. Not everyone agrees at all times but they respect each other. That’s what counts.
This wasn’t a show I went searching for, I actually came across it through Andy. He commented on a post I made in a group I frequent. It’s amazing how interconnected the podcasting world is, I would never have suspected that Andy and his crew would be associated with GayTalk 2.0, if I based it on outward appearance only. This further proves my point that you can’t judge a book by its cover, although that’s EXACTLY how I choose books! The irony isn’t lost on me folks.
I’ve learned some new dirty words, which is always a plus! I’m becoming familiar with just how infected a finger can be, don’t ask, just listen to the show.
I started with the most recent shows but I am making my way backwards so that I can become more familiar with each host. I’m horrible with names so it’s going to take me time to know the entire crew.
So far I’ve related with Drea Richard and Chris Hayes the most. I share similar views with both so it doesn’t surprise me but we’re not so similar that I blindly nod along with every word spoken. I don’t think anyone should ever have that much in common, where’s the fun in that?!?
Andy Julia has a great voice, it’s the perfect mix of gravel and smoke. It’s like you never want him to stop talking but never want him to use the voice for evil, like say…toward you, in a fight.
This is really just a podcast that allows a group of friends to share their daily communications. I can see the same conversation happening at someone’s house over the weekend or during dinner on any given night. The close nit feelings that come with the personal interactions allow you to quickly delve in without fear of missing anything. It’s hard to miss, trust me!
Something I find immensely enjoyable is when I disagree with a topic or someone’s stance on the show. It’s because they give reasons for those beliefs and it allows me to understand a new perspective. That’s something I’m learning to embrace more and more as I get older.
This most likely isn’t a show for anyone under 18. I’d give it an NC-17 just to cover all bases. The discussions can be graphic yet informative but it might be something you want to chat with your kids about prior to listening. Regardless, if you’re not easily offended and enjoy vulgar humor this is the podcast you’ve been missing!
