Did You Reddit?

Did You Reddit?

A (mostly) weekly podcast about the Internet, by way of Reddit: the front page of the Internet. Each episode, u/ItsYerDad, u/MyFreeday, and u/DogBoobes discuss a different Subreddit, and the subcultures that this subreddit is about…kindof.

It's Santa time baby, so we're all putting a little bit more DYR in your end-of-year holiday large socks. Since we've missed a few months now, we're spending the episode going over a bit of what we've missed, including heaven's very own pizza magnate Herman Cain, the Anti-Work movement, abortion, and similar lighthearted Internet moments. Plus, u/myfreeday's kids are high school bullies now, Dog is still...

Well ladies and germs, the day hath cometh. We are officially at our 200th episode, and like any great time-based achievement, we relish in our past while reflecting on our increasingly deflating future. So to celebrate, we go full Ranch Dressing Studios energy and discuss a bunch of semi-related Internet things, eventually landing on a concept we've been thinking a lot about called the Dead Internet Theory, which basically sug...

Finally, u/dogboobes gives us a much-needed introduction to the world of the Sims, by way of r/sims4. Plus, Free Day returns from Italy, so obviously, we racially profile him to mark his return.

This week, we discuss a bit of famous Reddit lore - u/throawaylien - who claimed in 2013 that they had a history of credible alien abductions and that July 2021 would be when aliens finally made themselves known. Well, July 2021 came and went, but we did have a lot of alien chatter around that time. So what's the deal? Was this person just doing some clever LARP stuff? Is the government in cahoots with the greys? Was Tom Delong...

Listen, we love splorts on this pod, as you may have noticed by now, and there's no better splort than the galaxy's interdimensional pastime, Blaseball. You may have heard us briefly talk about Blaseball on a recent FPR, totally ignorant to the profound nature of this sport, but after spending a few days fully invested, we decided to spend the full episode trying to break down what it is exactly that we love so much about t...

In today's special episode, we have a lovely conversation with the three women behind the scripted podcast 'The Bystanders', a murder mystery comedy from BLEAV network. Before we talk to Jaclyn Hales, Ash Lendzion, and Heather Morris however we do hit an FPR featuring some of the hits from this year's Olympic Memes on Reddit.

It's time to get back to a nice little Front Page Review. With week 2, back in Ranch Dressing Studios, we decided to take a look back at some of the goods from this past week's front page, starring our sweet baby boy Jeff Bezos, some quite frankly expected NSFW subs, and guest starring Blaseball, some sort of dramatic improvement on the sport of baseball. Friday morning pod energy ladies and germs and theys.

It's a big day ladies and germs and theys - we are BACK in Ranch Dressing Studios for the first time in about 2 years, and the show is definitely better, way more candid, and u/itsyerdad did way less editing out of our dumb stuff. Why? Because today we're covering r/howtonotgiveafuck, something we actively try to do on a daily basis, but at least one of us fails to do so.

Today we discuss the full timeline of Britney's bizarre pop-cultural fall from grace, conservatorship struggles, and quest to be a just be a good mom. Plus, the r/freebritney subreddit is a great resource for broadly understanding the complex discussions around mental health, volition, and the problems with caring too much about celebrities.

There's been a lot of wild news over the last week or so. John McAfee, the Internet's favorite weirdo, died in a Spanish prison. Bill Cosby was released from prison on a legal technicality it seems. However, the biggest news is the collapse of an expensive high-rise apartment on Miami Beach that will go down as one of the first great tragedies of our increasingly corrupt and outdated infrastructure system. To help make sens...

Well we WERE going to talk about r/royalsgossip, but in a hilarious twist of fate, the sub went private in short time period between when we decided to talk about it, and when we actually recorded. So in this episode, we speculate on why the sub might have gone private, why snark corners of the internet (and the grocery store isle) are so captivating, and why in queen's name do we even care about the royal family in the first p...

Everyone's talking about how bad the housing market is right now, but no one's talking about how good it actually is if you're looking for a mixed-theme Disney princess mansion in Ohio or a hand-carved wooden BDSM basement in Pennsylvania. And because of this, we're discussing r/zillowgonewild, one of Reddit's greatest resources for interior decoration inspiration, if your idea of high design is fake shadow cuto...

Back by popular demand, and also because u/itsyerdad was eating bad airline food on an Amtrak all last week, this episode we decided to do a full-length Front Page Review. We know you guys love it when we talk about Reddit's up-to-the-minute (or two days later) news stories, like meteorites, John Cuck Cena's mastery of mandarin, and cancel culture stuff, so we thought it'd be best to dig in.

So a guy named Jack emailed us last week and said that he was 19 and wrote books about investing. We're suckers for a good pitch, and as is well documented, we think (know) teens are smarter than us, so we took the bait and invited young Jack to join us and discuss a few of his tactics for convincing fellow teens to get into investing. We kind of talked about r/investing, but it's a douzy, so we're going to revisit this...

Today, we decide to start what will surely be a long ongoing series of r/creepypasta readings. r/creepypasta is less the beginning of the Internet's own urban legend continuum, and more a celebration of the characters and stories at its core. It's hard to say if creepypastas will ever really see another Slenderman or Jeff the Killer-level superstar, with the whole world stuck in a proverbial urban legend it seems, but that&...

r/nobodyasked is the very popular repository of basic social interactions online where someone just shared a little much information. Maybe they're a little too eager to talk about how much SEX they just had. Or maybe they're quick to remind you, unprovoked, that they're just not that into you. Either way, there wasn't a clearly appropriate time for them to announce this deeply personal fact to you, but they found a...

In this episode, we speak with CHARISMA queen, Hall of Fame running back, and life coach Monica Livingston about some of her tips and tricks for how to make your life better. We loosely focus the conversation on the very popular subreddit r/decidingtobebetter, which is where people share their stories of triumphs over their own distractions. This one is all positivity folks. Plus, u/dogboobes almost buys Danish luxury furniture.

Travis Morningstar joins DYR to discuss his experience using r/stopdrinking to get over his personal challenges with alcohol. Aside from discussing the very real value of the group-help communities on Reddit, we also relive the moment Travis decided to quit booze, and the reason he refuses to go fishing with strangers. Quite frankly, it's a pretty good reason. Plus, u/dogboobes tells us about her latest and quite frankly greate...

The Internet is a beautiful, horrible, traumatizing, loling place, and r/internetisbeautiful is a great resource for finding all the best that the Internet has to offer without the rotten dot com-ness of the other parts. Plus, we discuss the Neil Degrasse Tyson vs. Steak-umm Twitter "beef" (ugh) at depth, in conjunction with a lengthy chat about the 'Don't Tread On Me' libertarian attitude of meatball hoagies. R...

The Simpsons is undeniably one of the most important influential TV shows and entertainment properties...ever. On this episode we're joined by Mike Reiss, one of the shows original creators, writers, and executive producers, to discuss r/SimpsonsDidIt, a document of the prophetic Simpsons writing. But honestly, we just kind of talk about the Simpsons in general, Weird Al, and Mike's new podcast 'What Am I Doing Here?...
