My Brother, My Brother and Me: Podcast Review

Brother podcast review
My Brother, My Brother and Me Podcast

Listen to all My Brother, My Brother and Me episodes on their Vurbl station page.

The My Brother, My Brother and Me podcast from the Maximum Fun network is a comedic “advicecast for the modern era,” where three brothers answer any and all inquiries from listeners. They tackle the most random and off-the-wall topics that listeners submit, as well as finding fodder on the Yahoo! Answers forum boards. Topics include those nostalgic Biederlack tiger blankets from the 90s, and how to ask an acquaintance about a beach towel you saw in their house and swear is yours without sounding like a creeper. The point is not to actually answer these questions, because the brothers insist they’re no experts, and their advice “should never be followed.” Instead, attempting to answer the questions leads the brothers down a rabbit hole of lengthy, albeit hysterical, dialogue. 

The Hosts: Three real-life brothers, Justin McElroy, Travis McElroy, and Griffin McElroy are the co-creators and co-hosts of My Brother, My Brother and Me podcast. The trio also created The Adventure Zone podcast that was turned into a #1 New York Times Best Selling graphic novel series. The MBMBaM podcast was also adapted into a television series for SeeSo, NBC’s exclusive comedy app. The show was rated as the #1 television show on iTunes when it came out. The brothers’ acting and voiceovers can also be heard on Trolls: World Tour, and several other movies and television series. 

The Guests: While the McElroy brothers typically carry the show, they have had many notable guests on the show in the decade that it’s been on the air. Comedians, actors, authors, musicians, and fellow podcasters have all joined as “guestperts” to help answer listener questions. Guests have included Amir Blumenfeld, Patrick Rothfuss, John Roderick, Jonah Ray, Christian Jacobs, Elizabeth Gilbert, Bill Corbett, and Felicia Day. Don’t miss the awkward hilarity that ensues when the brothers are invited to record their show at the live Broadway debut of Jimmy Buffett’s Escape to Margaritaville (link below!).

Why You Have To Listen: My Brother, My Brother and Me is just a downright funny show. The brothers are… brothers. And so they have an innate chemistry and unique, almost “branded” sense of humor. Their laughter is contagious, and their easy back-and-forth banter and dialogue is more natural than a lot of co-hosts on other comedy podcasts. Many shows are NSFW and it’s definitely not kid-friendly, but if you don’t mind wearing earbuds and laughing hysterically in public, this show’s for you!
