WTF Podcasts – Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On August 2, 2013 @ 6:00 am In Travel,Weekend | Comments Disabled

We all have lots of ways to make travel less arduous. If you don’t have access to a Tardis [1] or the next best thing — a Gulfstream G5 [2] — then you know how arduous aircraft travel can be.

Sometimes you are just too tired to read, too fidgety to watch a movie. DVDs of youe favorite shows help, unless you are stuck on some 20 year old Delta flying museum without access to power.

One of favorite hacks to make the time pass pleasurably has been Mark Maron’s WTF. Its interesting, intelligent and often outright hilarious.

On the trip out to Denver, I killed two hours listening to him interview (if thats the right word) Mel Brooks [3]. The next night, heading to Vancouver, I heard him chat with Carl Reiner [4].

Both are fantastic sessions.

I’ve managed to get to maybe 50 of these in my travels. Some are 30 minute quickies, others (like these two) run hours. All are entertaining, many are brilliant.

Check ‘em out.
