Our Editor's Take

Madigan's Pubcast invites listeners to have a seat with comedian Kathleen Madigan. The podcast has conversational outlandish wit and humor. This is a refreshing show with plenty of talk about liquid refreshments.

Madigan is an American comedian, TV personality, and self-proclaimed "Mama Termite." Yes, that would mean that she calls her adoring fans "Termites." Each Madigan's Pubcast episode features her commentaries on a wide variety of topics. No matter what the subject, Madigan will have an opinion about it.

Host Madigan has her own brand of standup comedy with observational humor. This is what makes her Madigan's Pubcast podcast unique and a worthwhile, uplifting listen. She is a touring comedian who does hundreds of dates a year. So many of the topics involve whatever city she is working in. She had some Philadelphia comedy dates during the NFL playoff season. So Madigan talked about how intense Eagles fans are. She was staying at a hotel where the Eagles' opponents were staying. Somebody set off the fire alarm at 4 a.m. Was it to make sure the opposition got a bad night's sleep? Madigan riffs on the whole experience.

Madigan's Pubcast has a great variety of subjects on the podcast. She might discuss Bigfoot in one episode, then Thanksgiving and turkeys in another. She could then move on to the Wienermobile, clowns, and Elon Musk's pet. Other topics include Stevie Nicks, holiday movies, and the World Cup.

The Queen News segment is her top pick for what she considers the most worthwhile news to come out that week. Madigan also eats and drinks in every podcast, and names her faves. In her Good Bad Food segment, she critiques bad, unhealthy food and how good they taste.

Even more topics of curiosity make it to the Front Page Pub News. There's the rare Spirit Bear in Michigan and the adult Happy Meals from McDonald's. There's also the Viking cruise ship somehow stuck on the Mississippi River.

Those looking to brighten their day won't want to miss Madigan's Pubcast podcast. It's where the drinks are cold, and the conversations are hot.
