best podcast ever

Ear Biscuits: Uncut

So Ear Biscuits got released at midnight eastern time last night, and my trusty podcast app, Overcast (not a sponsor, but seriously, best podcast app ever), immediately downloaded it for me and gave me a notification for it as I got in bed. I caved and listened to the first few seconds just to see if it really was the episode or if it was I don’t know, a blank file? This is what I heard.

The episode that was released about 20 minutes AFTER this one does not start like this. I recorded all the way to the actual episode opener, though my version doesn’t have the intro music playing over it.

Sorry about the audio quality, I tried to reduce the noise as much as possible. What you’re listening to is a recording of my phone playing a recording, so there was only so much I could do. But it’s worth a listen just to hear an innuendo-laden exchange between Rhett and Link involving soft and hard sticks.

“I hope he’s a garbage man. My Mom used to tell me "be a garbage man and be the best garbage man anybody works with, I don’t give a shit what you do”, because who are we kidding? Everybody’s been doing remarkable things for six thousand years and where’s it gotten them? Who gives a fuck? Just have a good life"

“that was like, inspiring and cynical at the same time”

Every couple of episodes of Harmontown you get something you just need to write down.

atypical human; patient #11; caleb michaels; class a, level 7

“patient number 11-A-7, session nine. male, sixteen years of age, with the abilities of a highly advanced empath. so far he’s made very little progress in controlling this ability, sessions have been quite challenging as a result, for obvious reasons.”

Back earlier this year at the start of Uni, my friend introduced me to one of the most amazing things. The Adventure Zone, ever since I have been obsessed and in love and it would never have happened if we had never become friends or even had the same classes this year. So this is a thank you to @may12324 for being an amazing friend and introducing me to one of the best podcasts I have ever listened to. 

(Also i am very sorry this is very late XD)

I finally started listening to Alice Isn't Dead! I've been relistening to WTNV (used to but got out of the swing of it a while back), but I found that I remember most of it so it was nice to start something completely new :) it's really good and I'm excited!

Oh, nice! Alice Isn’t Dead is just…so good. I have no words for how good it is. Also parts of it creeped me out which is pretty hard to do. And it doesn’t take too long to get caught up on it (compared to wtnv which i’m still working my way through slowly). And it just does such a good job of capturing the tone of the places it talks about and all the surrealness and liminial spaces out in the middle of nowhere and…look, it’s just the best podcast ever.

Hey there, I saw that you were kinda shocked at how the Starship Iris hasn't updated since like April. I got into it awhile ago and it is honestly one of The BEST podcasts I've ever listen too. All the characters + eps are top notch, but the reason the main creator/writer hasn't made any more yet is b/c she got into a major depressive slump and needs to do some self care before she commits to the project again. She posted it on the podcast's tumblr if you want to know more info

oh!!! that’s not /fantastic/ news, obviously, but it’s nice to know what’s up, and I’ll definitely be checking out their blog! thank you!

“I’m going to excuse myself.”

Courtesy of the BEST PODCAST EVER (Awesome Etiquette, from Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning) is the best way ever to let someone know they’re being awful.

In this example, Lizzie was with a friend and people kept pestering the friend, asking her rude, super personal questions. The friend said, “I understand that you’re curious, but your curiosity is making me uncomfortable,” and even that didn’t re-direct the conversation.

And the guy still came after her. So: when basic politeness has failed, what do you to to ice someone out while maintaining your own dignity?

“You know, I’m going to excuse myself.” 

Lizzie said that you don’t have to say where you’re going. You don’t have to come up with an excuse. This says, plainly and simply, that this person has been awful and you are done with them.

Later in the podcast, they explore the delights of addressing someone with Mx., which is a fantastic gender-neutral honorific. Seriously, go listen!
