Description

Are you listening to a podcast, as you search for a new podcast, because you’re obsessed with podcasts? This is the place for your ears. Gina Grad and Teresa Strasser (The Adam Carolla Show) celebrate and break down your favorite shows using audio clips and interviews to highlight the stuff that makes them burst out laughing, burst out crying and burst out into night sweats. (There's also a better than average chance that a clip they share will lead to a juicy reveal about themselves.) There are half a million podcasts in this world; G & T are here to help navigate with this weekly walk down podcast lane.

Episode Date
Easy Listening - Ep.36 - "Bill Murray's Dream Job And Moby's Feud With Himself"
46:15

Bill Murray shows up for a podcast interview a day early, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. On “3 Girls, 1 Keith,” Amy Schumer captures the quirky, comforting mug of goodness that is Bill Murray. And an episode of “Heavyweight” exposes some secrets about the life of Moby, and how a box set he borrowed decades ago is long overdue. Gina Grad and Teresa Strasser parse the best podcasts for your ears this week.

Easy Listening - Ep.34 - "Sexist Egotistical Lying Hypocritical Bigot"
50:30

Two barrels, four bodies and one killer true crime series - and speaking of things isolated in the woods, we are checking back in with Dolly Parton and her Tennessee Mountain Home, and more specifically, how her music - especially 9 to 5 -- is often seen as political, except by Dolly herself. She doesn’t do politics, but she does do podcasts and so do we -- so thanks fellow podcast enthusiasts, for joining us on this week’s podcast about podcasts, Easy Listening.

45:35

Grifters gonna grift, and con men gonna con and fraudsters are coming for the coins rattling around in your piggy bank of hope - but cheer up! Wait don’t -- you want it darker, Leonard Cohen asks? Turn out the flame - because there are also bad batches of heroine, and actually there’s the entire opioid problem which is a batch of travesty and one new show explores how it affects the grieving sister of a famous comedian and writer.

Easy Listening - Ep.32 - "Self-Help Books Explored"
51:11

If one of the agreements you have with the four agreements is that you agree to set that book ablaze, you have something in common with the hosts of By the Book — which is a podcast you’ve been meaning to listen to about books you’ve been meaning to read AND if you think you have the answers for the people in your life who are screw ups, and you’ve read enough self help books to codify those answers, you will LOVE “We love you (and so can you).

On this week’s show, a porn star’s tweet leads to a mysterious death. Or does it? There’s a new true crime podcast in town from Jon Ronson (The Last Days of August), and Ira Glass (The American Life) is here to let us know about it. And, Queer Eye for the podcast guy!

Easy Listening - Ep.6 - "Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat"
01:22:37

This week, Jane Fonda made be 81, but she’s still down for some acting lessons, as she explains on “WTF.” She also had a deeply flawed childhood, which you can learn about in great detail on “You Must Remember This.” If celebrities opening up about their inner conflicts gives your inner ears joy, this week we also feature Zachary Levi on “Inside of You,” — the actor is keen on a very unusual and enigmatic therapeutic tool that’s part personality test, part Zodiac. On“Going Through It,” a famous cookbook author explains why saying no is good, except when her boss said no to some fancy Parmesan cheese.

And speaking of cheesy, if you’ve ever felt too unattractive to join a club, “This is Love” reveals a tight-knit group of Italians who find love and acceptance in The Ugly Club, which might make you Ugly Cry.

Easy Listening - Ep. 5 - "Fresh Death Can Be Tricky"
01:10:56

Gina and Teresa find themselves at the strange intersection where “To Live and Die in LA” meets “Missing Richard Simmons.” Gina may miss him the most since she was actually his student and she shares the magic words he once told the class on election night.  Esther Perel pulls one of those cool “Did a therapist really say that?” moves, and the measles are really, really bad. Plus, on this week's podcast about podcasts, a writer from “The Wire” tells his story on “The Moth,” which leads to a confession about Gina and professional wrestling.

Also, what does Howie Mandel have to say about the sexual prowess of the Jewess?

Easy Listening - Ep.3 - "The Bitch Is Back"
01:20:04

This week, one of the most painful moments from the Adam CarollaShow, the “Bitch Bag” is unearthed for your Easy Listening pleasure. Gina worries that her chin might be trying to kill her (and that your boobs might be trying to kill you) after listening to What’s the Tee with RuPaul. Both hosts take a ride on the Tim Ferriss Wheel for some talk about how magic mushrooms may be the new Xanax. And finally, Oprah and Eckhart Tolle teach us how to keep from getting our feelings hurt.

Easy Listening - Ep.2 - "I'm Not Comfortable With The Touching"
01:00:06

This week, Gina shares two classic parody songs from the Adam Carolla Show vault, both of which lead to some very personal and wildly uncomfortable revelations. Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle discuss why we should never talk about our illnesses, and Teresa’s pod crush, Pete Holmes, has to stop his own show because he gets so emotional. So much podcast about podcasts!

01:09:17

In the premiere episode, Gina and Teresa help celebrate ten years of the Adam Carolla Show with a look back at one of David Alan Grier’s most classic appearances. SPOILER: DAG snores, Adam laughs uncontrollably, and Teresa cries. In other sleep related news; G & T discuss Roseanne’s strict new Ambien policy from “The Joe Rogan Experience” and it’s lights out for the “Sword and Scale” host, who had to leave the show, but not before delivering possibly the pod world’s most awkward live read. After discussing feuds, friendship and firings, they close out the show with a look at “Modern Love,” the show that brings the New York Times into your ears with national treasure Catherine O’Hara.
