Matt's (Matt Sloan) got a bunch of movies he's never seen before. Craig (Craig Johnson) doesn't know what they are. Every episode Matt's gonna spring one on Craig. It might be good, it ... See full synopsis »
The Drunken Peasants Podcast , also known simply as DP, is a popular liberal-minded YouTube news and interview show from Columbus, Ohio. The hosts are Ben, TJ, Scotty, and Paul. They like to pick apart the news in a funny and entertaining way, as well as debate various guests, respond to YouTube videos, make fun of stupid ads, and answer questions asked by the community. The show has been on for a short time, but it has already collected a large following and countless inside jokes. The peasants have had arguments with many people, including: a Christian walrus and his posse, a black guy with a corduroy fetish, a schizophrenic Canadian who "exposes evil", a deplorable piece of shit with a math degree, an attention horse, a Reptilian, a psychic/medium/shaman, a doc-dropping kangaroo, and a pro-slavery black person who denies the existence of starving children.Written by
You should know coming into this that it's a low-brow form of entertainment, and thus you should watch it with this in mind that its only purpose is to perpetuate drama and watch as hilarity ensues. Not to say that the hosts are in anyway immature or unintelligent, hell all three are pretty reasonable and rationale people, the show they run though is just meant more for entertainment purposes than to be news, debate platforms, etc. That being said there are some enlightening moments, especially when guests are on.
It's definitely more engaging than any other podcast I watch as it involves itself into the YouTube community in such a way that sort of ties the community up very well. They often always have people of dissenting opinion on and those are often very enjoyable to watch as almost always both sides are very respectful to each other. I've listened to many other podcasts but this is the only one that I keep going back to.
That being said, I feel like PaulsEgo has somewhat of a drawback. There are moments when he shines, and other moments when all he does is disrupt guests and go on about things no one cares about. But he's been getting better so hopefully it will subside.
