(Pretend for a moment you haven't heard me go on about this in the shoutbox endlessly.)
The Flop House is a long-running bad movie podcast wherein three friends watch a bad movie and then talk about it.
Where How Did This Get Made is about energetic deconstruction of bad movies, The Flop House delights in complex tangents and running jokes. It's more of a humor podcast that uses bad movies as an excuse to be weird and funny.
This, I find, causes it to grow on you exponentially as you go through the catalog. The Flop House is my favorite podcast. And certainly no other podcast has burrowed itself so deeply into my soul.
Elliott Kalan - Head writer of The Daily Show. I described my early impressions of him in another thread: "You haven't experienced nasally giggles until you've heard his. I would characterize him as an annoying genius. His non sequiturs can become exhausting, but he goes on these improvised flights of comedic connection that are sometimes mindblowing." Since then, I have been completely desensitized to his voice, and Elliot has become my favorite, and I believe he's the most essential member. He really shines in the later episodes.
Dan McCoy - Staff writer for The Daily Show. Dan is known as "the sad one" and "Pervazoid #1." He produces the podcast, keeps the show on track, and weaves various threads together.
Stuart Wellington - Bartender and entrepreneur. Stuart occupies the anomalous intersection of table-top RPG nerd and "cool dude." A connoisseur of 80s exploitation movies.
