Dudes. There are a lot of podcasts out there. To quote my friend JOHN SILVER (@BlueLanugo on Twitter), “If there are only 7 billion people in the world, how come there are over 9 billion podcasts? I think some people are doing more than one.”
With podcasts too numerous to sift and sort through, it can be hard to find a good one.
This is a good one. It happens to be hosted by my good friend NATE SHELKEY (you’ve seen Nate in a bagillion commericals and several TV shows) and Nate’s friend NATASHA LEVINGER. It’s well-done… theme music, sound bytes, special guests, all of it.
What is the Ro-Co Review, you might ask?
Well, Ro-Co is an abbreviation for the “Romantic Comedy,” a controversial, yet popular, film genre.
The Ro-Co Review is, as the name suggests, a podcast that reviews romantic comedies. Nate and Natasha watch ‘em and dissect ‘em - tossing in a hefty sprinkle of banter. They also exploit Natasha’s young daughter for comedic purposes (not, like, in a creepy way).
From Footloose to Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Nate and Natasha cover the Ro-Co spectrum (you might argue that that’s not much of a spectrum considering the names of those films start with the same two letters. But I digress.). With a new film every week, you have no excuse not to know the ins and outs of Phoebe Cates’ performance in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (arguably more of a slacker film than a Ro-Co, but we aren’t here to argue) or the vague details of LENNON PARHAM’S new show on NBC because they talk about that too*. And Lennon Parham talks about this guy I also know, LUKA JONES, who is on her new show. So that’s exciting. Like I said, it’s a spectrum. With special guests.
* Lennon Parham is a special guest on Episode #12 - “13 Going on 30”
