Podgodz 92

Recorded 4 February 2014 

Topics of the Week

A day early and a dollar short…Gio plans a voyage home and to get some free dental work from a fan. Hopefully he isnt one of those unlicensed basement dentists that the Vancouver area has recently been plagued with.

I am also going to complain about the idiots that are Laffster.com that don’t seem to be able to do any right and seem down proud of their mediocrity as they burn through their investors money. Bubble 3.0?

Is Gio furiously angry at Jesse Thorn (Ep. 303: Hobbit Coffee with Asterios Kokkinos)?

Adam Carolla seems to be happy having Boomer and the Nudge or Weeny and the Butt as his guests recently. No wonder I don’t listen anymore.

Rick and Morty (animate TV show) – from the creative minds of Harmon Town and Grandmas Virginity (Justin Roiland). Just not good.

Sports Podcasts


Football Today

Hosts: Ross Tucker, Matt Williamson

One is a former player who will remind you he is a Princeton grad, but he is very light-hearted about it.

One is a former college/pro scout who has been with ESPN for most of the past 8 years. If you don’t understand basic concepts of football, you’d enjoy Matt Williamson during the NFL offseason explaining various schemes and player types necessary for the scheme(ie cover 2, 3-4, etc) If you prefer chuckles, Ross Tucker’s days are the best. They do waste an episode each week going over power rankings.

A Simple Step To Better Pod

This is a very basic guide to better sound on your podcast, if you would like more in depth consultation go here for the Superfan Giovanni Podcast Consultation service.

Do not forget the importance of the Levelator in particular for shows recorded remotely in person or via internet telephony, just export a wav and drag and drop, often times you will not need to do any other work, it defaults to an inferior -1.0db but it is still great.

Recorded 13 June 2013
I pretty much hated every ‘comedy’ podcast this week that I would normally love. All kinds of stupid shit being spewed out by people I usually enjoy. I am not just talking about the shit that NAME CENSORED crapped out either. So I spent time watching TV shows (Rectify, The Politician’s Husband, Orange is the New Black)
Pacific Rim was a good movie, but really fucking stupid and clearly not in this universe.
Podcast News
One of my favourite podcasts is coming back, but in a bicoastal format. Extra Hot Great – which is now from the people at previously.tv. Not only that, they plan a dual head record. It really could not get any better.

The Jovialist One!



Topics of the Week

Topic: all your eggs in one phone – or trapped in your rent controlled apartment. The podcast that almost wasnt. GIO – THEN ALMOST WASNT again because of GIO’s lack of reliable internet, “Hey lets make sure grandmas in the middle of the country get better data speeds than the person who needs them most” “hey lets make sure he gets lte at his old apartment less than a half of a mile away but not his new place, can we do that? ok cool.”.

Podstallnacht - yet another week of respite as I thought 3 people talking over 300 podcast feeds might be both a little dull and run a little long. You can thank me later.

Bye Everybody! Had to drive to Mcdonalds with laptop in order to upload files, seriously!?

Topics of the Week

 Sarah Beeber and her podcasting dilemma of people that just don’t get it.

Lax has seen a lot of movies recently, and wants to talk about them.






Topics of the Week

 Gio has a new fantastic tale to tell, I got a job offer, had a week of excruciating pain and some people unhappy with one of Gios picks last week while I on the other hand think it is explained by his generally horrible taste in POD.



Podgodz 48

Recorded 6 April 2013

Topic of the Week

We are sorry about the previous show. Wait, what show…isn’t this show 47? And apparently I stole the idea of a PodSherpa style app.

Also, some old stand by shows have really let Lax down this week.




GIO is in his true home once again and happy for a brief moment before reality struck back as it always does for him, Laxdude is surviving the plague and Dune is not drunk, this show is crazy and its short too.



Another no guest and no theme show, free form podcast blabber for the masses.


GIO Top 5

5. fatman on batman 19 Scott Snyder
4. Smodcast 234 My Chemical Bromance
3. Dune Reads Goosebumps The Cuckoo Clock of Doom pt 2
2. You made it weird with Pete Holmes guest Ari Shaffir
1. Adam and Drew Show Ep #001

Lax Top 5

5) The Nerdist #291 Ron Perlman.

Despite not being a fan of Christ and thinking I wasn’t a fan of Ron – added to the fact this was a deeply banked show, it was well before the election, I really liked it. Ron wasn’t the blowhard I was anticipating and it came off as a really good show. I kind of hate how good at doing podcasts Chris is – and wish that Adam gave half a fuck.


4) Megaboom!! Curiosity is Lovin’ It

It is rare for me to like Eliana free episodes, but this was a good one.


3) Risk! (Extra) In My Own Skin

It is very rare for me to like Risk! shows this much, especially extra episodes. It really was the story selection. Take a listen, and if you are a former Loveline listener, you will start yelling at the last story.


2) Penn’s Sunday School: No One’s Looking, let’s fuck.

God damn to I fucking hate their website, it is really like Sandy Ganz set it up and then vomited widgets all over it. This episode, despite not having Goudeu, really seemed like an extended version of his old FreeFM radio show, a show that I was rather fond of. I know Penn is a braying jackass at times and far too one about his fucking atheism, but still a great show.


1) Ask Mr. Biggs! #0031

This is a case of holding on to that feed just in case it might come back. Well just 27 days short of a full year since their last episode I was shocked with I saw one had downloaded. Kiss the baby jesus, give a thumbs up to buddy christ and give the money cat a high five because this is a great podcast and if you don’t listen to it and love it I don’t even want to know you man!

Profanity and Vulgarity in Podcasting 

This episode is themed around the great debate of Clean Vs. Explicit Vs. Whatever it is that Dune and Gio do. Yeah GIO even shocks Dune on this one, sorry folks, don’t play this one in a car with your babies.

Dune makes his triumphant return to Podgodz after the dust up in the aftermath of PG 18, It’s a very special bury the hatchet episode where Lax turns the other cheek and doesn’t bury a hatchet in Dune’s skull, it’s good times. https://twitter.com/dune



Once again a guestless episode, not hostfull as we aren’t fake nerds also because Lax is barely alive from illness and GIO is a thousand miles away wishing he was barely alive, preferably hanging from a tree, Enjoy this episode!



Listener interaction with podcasts is the main topic, the sub topic is about our guest Tardbasket and his insane level of podcast love. Dune shows up to bring out Alcohol Jesus and Pod Satan. Sorry about this one folks, I managed to slice 30min of nonsense and bad GIO out of this episode but still Laxdude is probably disappointed in all of us, in particular me. Baby, I promise, come back to me, it’ll never happen again, please baby, I’ll stop drinking and get my act together, I miss you Lax. Alternate titles for this episode include “Sorry About the Drinking” “Burning Bridges in San Diego” and “How to Break Up a Podcast”







Podcast Vacations and Hiatus, how this show will handle holidays, how other shows do it and what mistakes they make. International superstar recording artist Podcaster and comedian extraordinaire Rucka Rucka Ali is our guest, the man behind the PODGODZ themesong, THE GREAT THEMESONG, GOT IT BRO!?




EDIT: Sorry folks, had to go with the backup recording, GIO put 2hrs into this one, had a perfect almost flawelss sync, he accidentally deleted an aup project folder while editing, exported the file and uploaded it, turns out it was silenece for 2hrs. GIO ran out of hard drive space and lost his sound card, he needs new equipment, check out his amazon list on superfangiovanni.com if you want to help with new gear. This is the episode that proves Rucka’s theme song oh so very right, the man is a prophet who sees us better than we see ourselves it seems.


This Volume covers many topics, another sorry we’re drunk episode, some of us at least, sorry about everything.
Dune aka Alcohol Jesus aka Pod Satan is back, The Pulver is on the show and our other guest Bender, no not the robot. The main theme is Dual Head Recordings



Shows We Bundle

This episode is about the shows that have release issues or format and running time problems that cause us to listen to episodes in groups or wait for a certain amount before listening. The Porcelain Punisher himself Matt Fondiler of Carolla Digital is our guest.



Shows to be dropped and Podcast Apps, This episode covers podcasts Laxdude and I are going to quit or take a break from and our latest podcast app discoveries and results in using them.

Audio is Fixed, GIO was so swamped with crazy people and work nonsense he forgot one step in the process, will not happen again, please download the file one more time if you are so inclined, very sorry, about everything.



This episode covers the mistakes that podcasts and podcasters often make with advice on how to improve them, Lax and GIO give their top five ep’s of the week and discuss the podgodz website as well as various other podcast issues of the moment. We each accept a pod challenge from the listeners, Lax will try The Naked Scientists and I will sample the Bombcast.

PODGODZ 6 – Direct link



Due to a hardware crash we had to go with the backup recording, John our very own lonely teenager joins us for his first chat as our first guest, Laxdude is cheerful despite the lack of a main topic and GIO seems hell bent on digging up past grudges and focusing on the topic of how we accidentally drive away the ones we care for.
