Hey anon! Sorry it took me so long to reply. I’m not as huge on podcasts as I used to be (I feel like such an old fogey saying this, but I long for the golden podcast heyday of 2007-2009) so I only really have one recommendation.
Jake and Amir have a podcast called “If I Were You”, which is basically a comedy advice podcast. People write in with questions and problems and they answer with varying degrees of credibility and helpfulness. If you’re familiar with Jake and Amir through their Collegehumor show, that’s fantastic, but it’s not essential. They’re not in character, and their dynamic together is great.
I’d really suggest you give it a go, I really enjoy it. If you want a taste of it, you should obviously listen to their first episode (“Starbucks”), but the Best Of 2013 episode will give you a much better idea of what it’s like when they’re comfortable in the format and when they’re on the top of their game, because first episodes are always kind of awkward. Because you might want to listen before you commit to downloading, I’ll link to their site where they put all the episodes up as Soundcloud files.

The Best Of episode can be found here: http://ifiwereyoushow.com/post/70902680939/episode-48-best-of-2013
Give it a go, and please please please tell me what you think, anon!!!
