What Are You Listening To: Jason Tabrys – Disasterpiece Theatre

Since the demise of the Podcast Rankings, we’ve been yearning for other ways to connect with and feature podcasts on the blog. Podcasts we, as big podcast listeners, might be missing. So we’ve started a new feature on the blog called “What YOU Are Listening To”. We ask podcasting friends what shows they’ve been enjoying lately and put them up here to…hear. Hope you enjoy discovering, along with us, what some of our favorite podcasters are listening to.

First up, Jason, from our favorite nerd news podcast, BastardCast.

My name is Jason Tabrys, semi-prestigious internet word writer, podcaster, and person who can put his whole fist in his mouth.
disasterpieceI’m one of those people that usually only listens to fancy famous people podcasts like Harmontown and WTF, but there are a couple of indie shows that I occasionally check out. The cast I am about to tell you about is not one of those.I’m going to tell you about Disasterpiece Theatre. Now, here is me telling you about it.A couple of years ago, I captained a small band of writer people for a now dead site called WeLoveCult.com — perhaps you’ve never heard of it.
While doing that, I had a few absurdly talented writers who are doubtlessly still embarrassed by the fact that I got to briefly call myself their editor. One of those absurdly talented writers was Alex White. Alex, like a few of the others, has only gone on to greatness since leaving my tainting grasp.
Are you familiar with the website Reddit? Alex built that. Also, he was nominated for an Academy Award for the Buzkashi Boys short film.Quite a doer. These things are lies. I don’t know what he’s been up to, we wrote together on the internet for a blink two years ago, but he’s a cool guy and he had mentioned his podcast, Disasterpiece Theatre, and I checked it out.Then I didn’t listen again for a long-assed time. I may have told him that I did. I may be an asshole. Anyway, I’ve gone back to the show a few times since then and when I got the chance to write about another indie cast, I wanted to tell you about this one.Why? Well, Alex and his co-host Stephen Granade (and producer Brooke Fox) know how to put on a good show. This is a smart show and a pro product with fantastic sound quality, great chemistry, and a spectacular flow. It’s also got a great premise.

Basically, Disasterpiece Theatre skewers the Hollywood system by firing funny mental buckshot on a weekly basis as they pitch some of the greatest and most bizarre never were movies in the history of… all of it.

I’m listening now… “Down Periscope was an amazing movie” and “It’s all about Obelisks” just flew into my ears. It’s a weird and brilliant show that makes me laugh.

Go listen.Disasterpiece Theatre can be found on iTunes. Probably other places as well. Use Google or, whatever, is Bing still a thing? Alta Vista?

PODCAST RANKINGS

Even with a long month (and a late posting of the podcast rankings), there still wasn’t an insane amount of movement.
