Podcasts My Wife's Husband Listens To: Topics with Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter

It's called Topics. 

At this point, there is really no reason for this blorg to be called TV My Wife Watches. This is simply an outlet for me to write about whatever I want, and for people not to read it, and then for me to kill myself after leaving a long, cryptic (but absolutely HILARRRRIOUUUSSSSS) suicide note on the blog.

The thing is, it's not like my wife and I aren't watching TV together -- we are! Just last night we watched a little of that nature show Wild Russia (where I saw a tiger rip an antelope's face off and there was blood everywhere good god there was blood everywhere) and yet here I am, telling you about a really stupid podcast that I absolutely love and that my wife refuses to listen to.

"Topics" with Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter is the absolute dumbest podcast ever, and it's fantastic. You know Michael and Michael from The State, Stella, Wet Hot American Summer, Michael and Michael Have Issues, whatever, it doesn't matter, here's the iTunes descriptsh of the podcast.

"Topics" features long-time friends and creative comedic collaborators Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter as they tackle some of mankind's most difficult questions: What is the nature of love? Is time travel possible? Does God exist? And so many more. "Topics" is a thoughtful, intense conversation about what makes humankind... kind of human. Featuring original music by Dan Deacon!

What it should say is "Two idiots mock having deep philosophical conversations and it's so stupid and boring and amazing and dumb and funny and ridiculous and the only 30 minutes of my week that I actually enjoy, and all I have to live for in this dark, cruel, stupid world where antelopes get their faces ripped off by adorable striped beasts."

The humour on "Topics" is reallllyyyyy dry, and seriously so dumb, and if you're not a fan of the Michaels I can't imagine you liking it. But for all you cult Wet Hot and The State and Stella fans, it's definitely worth checking out.

I know what you're thinking, "WHOOOOOOO CAAAAAA----- 'cuz there's so many podcasts out there, and every dickhead at the water cooler has another recommendation for you, and no one has time to listen to them all, but despite this being the absolute stupidest podcast in the world, I truly feel that Michael and Michael are doing something that no one else in the comedy world is doing and omg get over yourself Ev honestly WHOOOOOOOO CAAAAREEEEEEESSSSSSZSZSZZSZS???

Download and listen to Topics here. Or just check out how amazing tigers are. Or don't do anything I honestly don't care this world is so stupid I'm going to get a taco.
