Today’s recommendation is The Mortified Podcast. I haven’t recommended a flat out comedy one yet and this one fills the bill.
It’s made up of recordings of people sharing their inner most (usually teen) thoughts. Folks read from their diaries; the sweet and the squishy, uncomfortable stuff. They sometimes have “famous” folks on too, like Bill Burnham, Elijah Wood, Busy Phillips, and Phoebe Judge.
This is the description on their site:
Witness adults sharing their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, plays, home movies, art) with others, in order to reveal stories about their lives.
Recommended if you ever wanted to read your sibling’s diary or just get into your childhood friend’s brain. Or if you just want to laugh.
Note there is some adult language here.
Some of my favorite episodes:
04: Jimmy: Throw in the Towel
115: The Only Living Lesbian on Love Island
141: Camp Buy Me Love
151:Confessions of a Catholic School Girl
