I like to think each and every last one of the readers of this site listens to the Comedy Death Ray podcast (recently renamed Comedy Bang Bang) every week, but for those of you still uninitiated, here is a good place to get your proverbial feet wet: Episode 102 at the 1 hour and 13 minute mark for the Elton John/Bernie Taupin “interview.” If that doesn’t do it for you, then CDR isn’t your thing and we probably can’t be friends.
I was listening at work and during the “Rocketman” portion I had to press pause and concentrate really hard on the most tragic topics I could conjure in order to not burst out laughing at my desk. It was touch-and-go for a couple minutes there, but I pulled through and remained silent and put the headphones back on and thus ends the most boring story you’ll hear all week.
Back to the subject at hand: CDR is the best podcast on the planet, and this was one of my most favorite recent clips. Have at it, friends.
