Totally Useless Information with Nick & Roy

Totally Useless Information with Nick & Roy

Listen, laugh & learn: this is the premise of The Totally Useless Information podcast, created by Nick Maiorano and Roy Locascio. The two hosts scour the internet every week and bob and weave their way through the morass of fake facts in search of real – but totally useless – information that you thought you’d never need to know. The information can get so wildly ridiculous and intriguing that it has attracted audiences in more than 50 countries which have been tuning in and coming back again and again.
