This past weekend I was introduced to the wonderfully strange and hilarious podcast called My Brother, My Brother and Me. I am a podcast junkie in that I listen to at least one podcast a day. I have over 50 different podcasts on my phone and I’ve probably downloaded over 1,000 episodes over the past few years. And yet–I had never heard of this podcast before this weekend.
Why is it so great? Well, it’s basically a show about what you often do with your closest people. Or at least what I do–discuss, in great detail, your opinions on the mundanest topics. This isn’t always the case, but more often than not it’s just three brothers talking in fervent seriousness about their opinions on things like people who unwrap gifts carefully versus tearing wrapping paper to shreds. Speaking of which, I would recommend starting with the episode where they talk about all things Christmas. It left me in tears I was laughing so hard.
The basic platform is pure genius: Giving advice to people who post questions on Yahoo Answers. Now, if you’ve ever been on the Internet for more than a few minutes, you’ve probably come across this gem of a web page. The questions range from normal to pure insanity. I’m mad for not thinking of this idea myself. They also talk about more serious topics and random things like the new Naked Chicken Chalupa Taco Bell recently introduced (this episode also had me dying). The brothers are so, so funny and they can get super, super weird. It’s a perfect show in my opinion and if you haven’t heard of it yet, I’d definitely recommend giving it a listen.
