A podcast with numerous episodes I revisit often. The two Mikes know how to make it happen for me and they're in great if a little uneven form across this series.

This podcast had a great premise, but struggled to live up to it in the early going. Both Michaels (Showalter and Ian Black) are funny guys, but you could tell they were still feeling things out in the early going. As the show went on, they found their footing in the premise (no spoilers, but it's obvious) and it got better and better. For example, they spend one episode talking about how they are going to discuss a topic, but then never actually get into it. Brilliant. Definitely worth a listen if you like dry comedy, but go in knowing that it can be uneven.
