Any good podcasts by couples?
September 13, 2011 3:48 PM   Subscribe

Looking for good podcasts by married or unmarried couples (of any variety) that are just random and conversational, with no particular theme or topic.

I'm interested in particular in podcasts that are not super-popular or famous, like The Dawn and Drew Show, but which have a similar vibe. Preferably just some obscure but reliably entertaining couple.

It's easy to find popular podcasts at the iTunes Store and elsewhere, but not so easy to find good ones that aren't in the top 100. So I'm curious to know if anyone has a lesser-known favorite. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

(Incidentally, if you want to suggest your own podcast, please MeFi Mail me with the info!)

Not obscure, and probably in the Top 100, but Kevin Smith/Jen Schwalbach's Plus One Per Diem is on every single weekday and is pretty entertaining.

Not sure if this fits your requirements, but my favourite podcast of any kind is Answer Me This - two British comedians, Helen Zaltzman and Olly Mann, answering questions sent in by listeners in amusing ways, often going off on tangents; both of them are extremely funny and likable.

While Helen and Olly are not a couple, Helen's equally funny husband Martin, who produces the podcast, joins in the conversation all the time.

It recently won the Sony Award (Britain's no. 1 radio award) for Best Internet Programme.

Why? There's nothing wrong with someone linking to their own podcast if it's an answer to your question.

Totally Laime! (which is in the final two of the Earwolf Challenge.)

Seconding Answer Me This! and adding Nerd Hurdles - ostensibly about nerdish things but really fairly diverse topically and rambly in a good way.

Ah, sorry. I didn't know there were exceptions to the no-self-linking rule here. Never mind that part!

I like Randy's Vinyl Tap http://cbcpodcasts.wordpress.com/podcasts/ (mobile device, sorry). Randy is Randy Bachman, formerly of "The Guess Who". His wife joins him for part of the show. It's very casual though each show is built around some kind of musical theme. It manages to be entertaining, interesting and relaxing.

The Worst -- A Podcast for Nice People. We haven't recorded in a long time (but plan to do so again soon). I'm the co-host, and my wife is on the show so frequently that I would consider it a "couples" podcast. Local (St. Joseph, MO) stand-ups and musicians (and sometimes just our good friends) appear as guests, and the chat is definitely random and conversational. We've also had other couples on as guests, so certain episodes meet your criteria in a big way.

You might enjoy the Emma and Pete show.

I am going to go ahead with shameless self-promotion and link to my podcast with my husband, We do book and TV show reviews chapter by chapter and episode by episode, and the first book we've chosen is Game Of Thrones. We've got about 20 episodes up so far, and the feedback has been extremely positive. That said, we swear a lot and talk about sex a lot (because there's no avoiding that in these books) and if you're not into Game Of Thrones you probably won't find us too interesting at the moment.

For some reason it didn't show, but here is the link to the blog for the podcast.
