Both podcasts finished in 2017, but thanks to the 60 Minutes With podcast that began in 2014, podcasters from both shows continue to put an eclectic mix of shows into peoples ears, covering movies, music, television, video games, interviews, reviews and more! Some may call that being a jack of all trades and master of none, whereas we prefer to look at it as being a buffet of aural entertainment where you can pick what you enjoy. Ben and Dave can be found together on the 60 Minutes With ‘ClintCast’ series of shows. Go ahead, give us a listen and make our day.

67, 68, 69 Tom Taylor, Pete Mummert & Gerry Porter

Tom Taylor is busier than he ever intended to be as co–host of The Indiana Jones MinuteCaddyshack Minute now called The Movie Hole, and ABCDEVO podcasts. If that weren’t enough, he has also written a young (not-Frankenstein) adult novel, In Memory of Todd Woods.

Pete Mummert is a co-host of the Indiana Jones Minute podcast, a show that the AV Club once hailed as “not nearly as tedious as a thing like this could potentially be.” He lives with his wife, two cats and a monstrous creature that he animated during an electrical storm last year.

Since seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark, Gerry Porter has been inspired to search the globe for rare antiquities. Actually drums. He’s known Tom Taylor since birth, and Pete Mummert since their days at Marshall College, and believes that in a fight between Han Solo and Indiana Jones, we all win (until we all lose). His official title is the Perpetual Intern, or P.I., on the Indiana Jones Minute.

73, 74 Tyler Boudreau You would think Tyler Boudreau would be able to write a funny bio, given he is a comedian and satire writer. But therein lies the problem. If he was any good at selling himself, maybe you would have heard of him or his podcast, Fantastic Mr. Fox Minute (which he hosts with his sister Chandra). What you should know is that Tyler is a college student, a comedian, a teacher, a writer, a critic, a librarian, a movie fan, and a moon worshiper. Despite such varied interests, podcasts may very well be Tyler’s true passion.
