Mouthy Broadcast maybe the podcast for you
Do you like listening to podcasts? I spend quite a few hours every week as I’m walking around a lake or driving to and from work listening to podcasts. My taste in podcasts ranges from those about blogging to photography, interesting facts, humour and technology. I also host a podcast (which I’ll mention at the bottom).
Star Trek connection
One podcast which I got onto as a result of listening to a few Star Trek podcasts is Mouthy Broadcast.
Lauren, Jennie and Peter are the regular hosts, although in the past there have been many others. The show drops on Tuesdays (USA time) and runs for anything between 30 minutes to an hour. There’s a reason it drops on Tuesdays, you’ll need to listen to find out.
Two important points
Now I should probably mention two points up front. I’m writing about this podcast as part of a competition I have no hope of winning but I just want to see if they’d consider sending a prize to Canberra, Australia. The second point is that this podcast is what is known as EXPLICIT. It’s NSFW. If you don’t know what that means then you probably shouldn’t listen. There’s a good amount of swearing, a reasonable amount of blasphemy (although I know some people would argue that there is no such thing as a reasonable amount of blasphemy), and the profanities that come from the mouths of the ladies would shock your mother. There’s usually at least one reference to masturbation and I have a sneaking suspicion that Peter is a secret sounder. Lauren also has a thing for sandwiches and fellatio while Jennie likes Dr Who and Star Trek. That said, I think to be a host you must at least like Star Wars and be a geeky nerd like that.
More about the hosts
Lauren and Jennie live in the north-east around Virginia and Peter is from Florida. They often have guests including some bloke named Ben and recently there was a really cool bloke who spoke as Mark Twain. The hosts also welcome you sending them a voice recording with a message, whether it be feedback or some story you think they may like.
If you have a ribald sense of humour and can appreciate an exploration into some very funny, albeit coarse and vulgar topics then Mouthy Broadcast is for you.
They also like to play music during a break. I fast forward through the music because it’s not to my taste. You might like it.
An alternative without as much swearing
Now if you would prefer no swearing and enjoy learning one or two medically related facts, you may enjoy Medical Fun Facts. This is my podcast which is lighter hearted and each show lasts about five minutes and I drop a show each Monday and Thursday night at 7 pm Canberra time. You can find it on iTunes and Stitcher.
