Here is our list of comedy podcasts that Murph listens to on a regular basis. This list will grow as I discover more interesting podcasts. I will also attempt to answer the question: just how many podcasts can a busy person listen to, anyway? Feel free to suggest one in the comments below.

Bill Burr – Monday Morning Podcast
Massachusetts born comic Bill Burr rants about sports, relationship advice, and the Illuminati. He records the hour-long podcasts each Monday (hence the name) from his home.

Comic Pete Holmes hosts this weekly podcast on Chris Hardwick‘s Nerdist podcast network. Pete’s podcast are lengthy conversations with another comic, and Pete’s infectious laughter tends to crack up his guests as his guests in turn crack him up. And then they will tell you to “Keep it crispy”.
