You Look Nice Today is worth checking out

I have become completely enamored of a little podcast by Merlin Mann, Scott Simpson, and Adam Lisagor, called You Look Nice Today. Apparently, if one can believe the intertubes, these guys were all popular contributors to Twitter, who started this podcast of random humor.

It sounds like three guys talking about random stuff. But it's distinguished by a few things:

  • It has a certain radio morning show quality -- three guys talking -- but it's been edited to remove the boring bits.
  • Each of the three hosts seems willing to follow up on any crazy idea suggested by the others. Someone suggests something. The others take it and twist it and it goes weird fast. This aspect of suggesting, in apparent seriousness, wacky ideas is one of the things I love best.
  • As a result of the above, it's quickly building up it's own language. Hmm. That's not really unique. But I do like the things they come up with.
  • I like the fact that it's very simple. Although it's edited, it's not heavily edited. It's just been snipped.

Of course, I think all three of these guys are really close to my age. So there's that.

The only problem I have with this podcast is that there isn't enough of it.

  1. I just heard Merlin Mann say that Adam Lisagor spends a lot of time editing their podcast. And his goal is to make it sound like it's not edited. I don't know anything about audio editing, but this was interesting to hear.
