Show Notes

In which we laugh our way through a podcast about the world’s greatest humor website: homestarrunner.com. Why is it still funny? How does “funny” (of all things) manage to endure? What role does humor play in culture? How do things become timeless(ish)?

An image of the main cast of the website.



By “links” we basically just mean: go read Hyperbole and a Half and watch things on HomeStarRunner.com.
