    I love this so much. Matt Oberg is great as a radiolab-type voice. And the thing that made me laugh the Most, and continues to make me laugh when I think about it, is just the way he says:
    “No matter how you put it, that’s *too many raccoons*’

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    I want to do this one ALL the time. I love it.

    But the production and editing take so very very long.

    If anyone is an editor and feels they would have the sensibilities to take a crack at editing the next one (not do the production work just the editing) please get in touch on facebook or twitter!

    It’s not just an editing job – it’s a creating of a story. Essentially I improvise with someone for 40 minutes or so. Then, I get Matt in and try and explain what happened in the story and we come up with dumb theories. But the rough material covers a lot of dead narrative ends, so you have to pick and choose the narrative you want to build.

    Anyway, if that sounds like something you could do, get i touch!

    Wonderful parody. Well done.

    I was hoping FactTime would draw inspiration from RadioLab when I heard it was going to be a public radio style format.

    I did NOT expect it to be a pitch perfect, improv-ception spoof. This is fucking incredible.

    I know it’s an homage, and the whole thing is predicated on Radiolab’s popularity/quality, but…Down with Radiolab, up with FactTime!!!

    @Mark
    Ok, I honestly stumbled across that podcast by random and never figured out who they actually were. Who were they and what are they doing now!? Because I miss it and this episode was in the exact same vein.

  8. Mark says:

    Oh my god T you nailed it, this is ABSOLUTELY like You Look Nice Today. Where is John Hodgman to provide some literally phoned-in interstitials?!

  9. Mark says:

    I’m only like 35 seconds in but this is an amazing Radiolab takeoff. Also as a lifetime New Hampshire resident I love the shoutout and can confirm my eye sockets are dead, dry craters.

    GOT DAM this was so good

  11. motorheadddd says:

    I love Radiolab. This was awesome.

  12. Doak22 says:

    I hate Radiolab. This was awesome.

  13. T says:

    I loved the straight-man/dead-pan approach to this one. Can’t say I ever really figured out what was going on, but I do know I was laughing the whole time. Only Braunohler could make something so quirky and so fact-laden simultaneously. Except for maybe those ‘You Look Nice Today’ fellows…

    This episode is much more surreal if you’ve watched Pom Poko.
