Mike and Tom Eat Snacks

[edit: MATES has since changed their broadcasting, so their Soundcloud page no longer has the entire archive of shows, hence my embed links below will not work. still, you can find those episodes here]

If you know me—like, really know me, you know that I unashamedly love both snacks and the act—nay, the ART—of snacking. There are many philosophical reasons for this behavior of mine, but there are also the practical reasons: it’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s necessary. A snack is a friend, a travel companion, and a snack. Eat them.

Thankfully, we have two veterans of the snack game to pick, eat, discuss, and rate the world’s catalog of snacks: Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh. If you need a break from your political podcasts, your grinding newscasts, your lesson-casts for things that you know are never going to stick, or your podcasts about podcasts (metacasts), then go to their iTunes page or their Soundcloud page for delectable bits of empirical importance.

While no snack is safe from their scrupulous advances, bear in mind that neither is any tangent; these two will spin off into anecdotes, whiplashing you handily with their wit whilst displaying a rapport that only two old friends have earned. They also fight a lot.

Here are a few select cuts from MATES:
