Our Editor's Take

The Brilliant Idiots podcast is smarter than the title may seem. Hosts Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schulz don't mind getting laughed at, even when they make others laugh. This New York-based podcast will entertain all. The hosts balance each other out with their loud, open, and crazy personalities. They aren't afraid to say controversial things.

Charlamagne Tha God cohosts The Breakfast Club. That's one of New York City's top radio shows. He also hosts the Hell of a Week podcast. The Brilliant Idiots podcast features his conversations with his cohost. Schulz is a popular standup comedian who released the "Infamous" special in 2022.

Most episodes of The Brilliant Idiots have guest stars on board. This includes comedians Lil Duval, Akaash Singh, and DJ Vlad. Details of many controversial pop culture events get shared. From trending tweets to live show mishaps, the hosts discuss it all.

The podcast is a great way for listeners to stay up-to-date with current affairs in a lighthearted way. In one episode, rapper Gunplay talks about authenticity in his industry. In "The Bliss Of Ignorance (Ft. Chris Morrow)," the listener hears about Morrow's The Summer of 85 project. That audiobook talks about two things going on in Philadelphia in that 1985 summer. One was the Live Aid concert. The other was the city firebombing the MOVE headquarters. Comedian Kevin Hart and Charlamagne Tha God produced the project. The Brilliant Idiots listeners learn more about this and other pop culture offerings.

Since their first meeting in 2012, Charlamagne and Schulz have maintained their friendship. Their genuine sense of camaraderie is evident in the show.
