At this point, you’ve heard me mention Last Podcast on the Left, several times. What you haven’t heard me mention, is that they have a whole podcast network. While not every podcast is my jam, the two mentioned in the title are a couple of my other favorites. Their subject matter is completely different than their parent podcast.
Wizard and the Bruiser is hosted by Holden and Jake. They take deep dives into various subjects in nerd culture. For example some of their episodes have included; Invader Zim, Smash Brothers, Junji Ito and Zelda. It’s a different form of edu-tainment than the true crime series. Informational and fun.
Page 7 is your pop culture fun zone. Hosted by Jackie, Molly and Holden, they discuss the latest celebrity gossip and deep dives into pop culture subjects. While pop culture is not one of my favorite subjects, the hosts are so damn funny that I don’t care what subject they talk about, I’ll listen.
Which brings me to to their live show that we attended last night in Pontiac, MI. I’ve never laughed so hard. While LPOTL is great, I definitely laughed harder at this show. Their energy was great and they fed off of the crowd. It was a smaller venue so we easily had great seats.
After the show, my husband spoke with Jake and Holden briefly. Me? I lurked in the shadows. I never know what to say to people that they don’t hear a million times. My resort is just telling them that I love them and to thank them for coming to our area. My anxiety level sky rockets at even this amount of interaction.
Then, we waited to meet the queen herself, Jackie Zebrowski. There may not be a funnier, nicer person on the planet. By the time it was our turn to meet her, my anxiety dissipated and sank into Mr. C&M. So for once, he was the awkward one and I was fine. Lmao. She’s seriously such a warm person and has no problem striking up a conversation with anyone. We chatted for a few minutes,she graciously took a picture with us, hugged us super hard and thanked us for making it out to the show and showing our support.
If you haven’t checked out either of these podcasts and one or both appeal to you, I highly recommend that you give them a try. And if they tour anywhere near you, check out their live show. Your cheeks will hurt from laughing after.
