Courting Sketchfest Countdown: The Podcasts [7 Days Left]

I’m a fan of podcasts. I said it and I’m not taking it back. Their exponential growth and autonomy has made a collective, eclectic connection with listeners who are willing to spend the big bucks on witnessing their favorite program. Outside of the Los Angeles Podcast Festival, no other collection of shows boasts as many live recordings as SF Sketchfest: Judge John Hodgeman, Bullseye with Jesse Thorn, Thrilling Adventure Hour, Superego Podcast, Throwing Shade, The Dead Authors Podcast, Professor Blastoff, Nerdist Podcast, Smartest Man In The World, How Was Your Week, Plus One Podcast, Never Not Funny, Pop My Culture, Who Charted?, AND You Made It Weird. Wow.]

Courting Sketchfest Countdown: “2013 SF Sketchfest Trailer” (aka, the Maelstrom). [34 Days Left]

[When spoken aloud, the line-up for this year’s Sketchfest sounds like a mad plot by the Joker to release organic SmileX]

Courting Sketchfest Countdown: ‘The Adventures of Pete and Pete Reunion’ @ The Marines’ Memorial Theater. [37 Days]

[Nothing is better than nostalgia and the 1990s was rife with little nuggets of inspired weirdness (that made it okay to be a weird kid). Pete and Pete were the cathartic surragates for my own sibling rivalries and immature idiosyncrasies and it’s exciting to warp back, if only for a second].
