fripodding and detecting: mike detective podcast


Since I’m going to be taking classes about broadcasting, podcasting, and all of the above, I figured it’d be in my best interest to get familiar with more podcasts that are out there other than the ones I currently listen to. I’ve found I don’t have as much time in a single day as I thought I might. But I did find a handful of popular ones, mostly in the comedy section, called Mike Detective: Unlicensed and Uninsured Private Eye.

I’ll will warn you off the bat that this is not a podcast for children or those easily offended. But if you can look past the language and sexual references, then prepare for some hilarity to ensue.

I love it’s modern take on classic film and radio detective style noir. I would love to see this actually be taken to a TV or film screen some day, but part of it’s genius is due to not being able to physically see the action and completely relying on the very funny narrations or dialog from the characters. And like the classics detective series, they end on cliffhangers so you come back next week for the next episode as we follow our hero tackle some big mysterious crime. Each episode averages about 5 minutes where Mike battles wits with the goon of the week just to find himself in more trouble. I listened to the first one, as if it were a pilot, and immediately pushed the subscribe button and listened to the rest.

Again, this would be rated R if it were a movie, TV-MA if it were on TV but since it’s on iTunes, it gets the red EXPLICIT label. So you were warned. But it’s also very funny, so check it out.
