The epDate: Comedy Week

NewsThu 13 Sep 2018

Welcome to The epDate, where we bring you the latest in podcasting for podcast people!


Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has hit an all-time high, with a controversial toke of “wacky tobacky” on the Joe Rogan Experience, a podcast well known for weed consumption in the completely legal setting of California. The passing of the blunt was then followed by talk of taking psilocybin mushrooms. Of course Tesla stock prices took a dump but heck, having a puff that cost the company $265 million must feel pretty good, especially considering the street price of marijuana is about $10 a gram. That must’ve been some good green, if you know what I mean.

We should expect to see Tesla’s new car hit a top speed of 420 within the next year.

You may know that Auscast Network extra is running comedy week this week, and in other hilarious news Kyle Sandilands made 16th place in a take5 top 20 sexiest Aussie celebrities list.


Comedy podcasts can sometimes be agenda driven, it’s an excellent platform to hide persuasive journalism in the form of jokes. Podcasts such as Wait, wait… Don’t Tell Me, receive heavy criticism for consistently republican bashing or trying to prove, with humour as the veil, that Donald Trump is incompetent in his role as President of the United States of America. Where does comedy begin and the agenda start? An age old question that will prove to be unanswerable.

With this in mind, you may enjoy a comedy podcast called Info Wars, which is no longer available on Apple, Spotify, or any popular media outlet due to the globalist illuminati agenda.


For non-comedy matters, Social Commentator Lois Fernandez runs a podcast called Lou Reads the internet for you, which is a compression of the most important news, and discussions from all over the internet.

In episode 125 Lou reads Porn Fan Chats from the Brazzers Forum, which is a sophisticated and PFFT - who am I kidding, it’s a hilariously well-spoken read of the darkest depths of the internet, check out the podcast if you’re delighted by the brazen lunacy of internet forums.


True crime podcasts are still increasing in popularity, especially amongst women who have shown a massive increase in listening in 2018. These podcasts attract so much attention that it’s only a matter of time before we have normal people plotting complicated crimes to record and release as a realistic and profitable podcast.


There’s plenty of comedy podcasts to recommend, as many stand-up comedians take to the platform in their careers, it’s often noted as the second biggest genre of podcasts.

There are plenty of different kinds of comedy coming out on Auscast Network extra this week, including stand-up comedy from School of hard Knock Knocks, the Attitude Consultant with an open mic set, The Adelaide Show with a Wine Master Class, Yeah G’Day talking fairy bread, and The Badcast has J-Wah! From the popular comedy band “the beards”. With a line up like this running each weekday you’d be silly not to catch these laughs.
