Podcast Review: Box Angeles

So you want to make it in Los Angeles?

It’s no secret that it isn’t as easy as just moving there. But, what are the secrets to actually making it?

That is exactly what the Box Angeles podcast works to reveal.

Since the podcast started in 2013, Mike “Box” Elder has honed his skills to create interesting and compelling interviews week in and week out. Guests range from familiar faces, like: Thomas Middleditch, Milana Vayntrub, Seth Morris, Matt Besser, and Samm Levine, to various up and comers like: Justin Michael Terry, Francisco Ramos, and Davina Leone.

Elder’s witty banter and mid-western charm facilitates genuine responses from his guests each episode. The result is interesting stories about the events and decisions that have led his guests to where they are today. With an endless stream of probing questions, Elder is able to get a refreshing level of honesty from his guests.

With the injection of his rants, one liners, and infectious laughter, Elder delivers an entertaining podcast every time.

The key? He is humble.

The podcast isn’t about him. It is about his guest and his listeners. Elder understands that every guest has a unique story to tell and that it is his job to bring that to his listeners in an entertaining fashion. Every episode feels like you are just hanging out with Elder and the guest du jour in his Hollywood apartment. It is a great change of pace from podcasts with a similar format that occasionally seem to try too hard.

You are guaranteed to laugh every episode and end them wanting more.

Make sure you add this one to your podcast rotation, you will not regret it.

iKnowBadeaux Episode 62: Papa Schlumpf

iKnowBadeaux is back with another hilarious episode.

I promise it gets better if you just power through the 4 of them nerding out on video games for 5 minutes…

Also, I am reviewing movies for the site you can find them here or on the iKnowBadeaux blog.

Listen to them try to figure out which actors are alive or dead. Scotty brings international news to the show. And, they all make fun of Dave every time he misspeaks.

Listen in your car, at the gym or on the toilet!


Hello and Congratulations from The Minnesota Sweat Lodge! This week on the show we bring back the one and only Rufio himself Mr. Angelo Polcaro! Rufio joins the cast for the first time in his new role as official podcast videogame reviewer and just in time to talk briefly about the events of last week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). As you can imagine this week gets a bit nerdy as the Brothers Badeaux get swept away in the videogame talk while the Councilman Gabe Johnson pretends to give “ah” single sh!t about the whole ordeal. Hang out with the crew as they play a Jurassic Park themed version of the game Dead or Alive, and talk about German police humor and the wonders of riding on a Russian Mini Bus in the weekly edition of Don’t tell Scotty he does the news.

I Know Badeaux: A podcast review

With all of the podcasts that are out there today, it is hard to decide which do give your valuable time to. Look no further than the iKnowBadeaux podcast.

It is a refreshing change of pace from the normal standard interview style of entertainment. Dave Badeaux has created a podcast that brings you into an hour of normal people hanging out for an hour – playing a game and talking about the week’s most interesting(?) news stories. The banter that happens between the frequent podcasters (Dave Badeaux, Gabe Johnson, Keith Larson and Scott Badeaux aka Boutros Boutros) makes them immediately relate-able.

Dave Badeaux makes a terrific host. His self-deprecating style of humor mixed with his genuine interest in his fellow podcasters and guests make the iKnowBadeaux podcast an easy, hilarious listen. And, even when Badeaux’s attempts at humor fail miserably (I mean, really fail. Sometimes it’s like did he really think that was going to be funny? Man, what an idiot), his fellow podcasters pick up the slack without missing a beat. You will not regret giving this a shot. Continue reading
