First off, there's the Thrilling Adventure Hour. If you haven't listened to it, I highly recommend you do. It's a podcast done in the style of old-time radio, recorded live. They finished doing their monthly shows at Largo in Los Angeles, and are about to finish up their weekly podcasts, which sucks because I only recently started getting into show late last year.
|And these are just a few of the regular cast! The guest stars are just as awesome!|
|See? You'd never know he was talking about playing Magic: The Gathering.|
|Shown: Most of the Wits cast, with a few of their guests (Dave Hill, Sara Watkins, and Chris Kluwe).|
Not shown: Aimee Mann and Ted Leo playing great songs as The Both, but it totally happened.
So, if anyone out there can recommend good listening/viewing similar to any of these three shows, by all means, let me know!
Fortunately, I still have the awesome folks at Twitter making me laugh, so it's not a total wash. In fact, let me show you a bunch of their tweets! In no particular order...

After I finish drinking my coffee I like to show my empty mug to the IT guy to tell him that I've successfully installed java. He hates me.— RagingCynic (@FyNghalon) February 4, 2015

And there you have it! Not too shabby, if you ask me. (And I think it's safe to assume that, since you came here to read this, it is implied that you did ask me, so...)
Anyway, have an awesome week. And to set you on your way, here is one of my favorite Thrilling Adventure Hour episodes: Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars: The Agony of the Feet.
All the best,
Derek and Bosco
