Comcastrodors, please welcome the hosts of the Quadcast podcast, Mark and Courtney, also known as Swanny and the Quadfather. Quadcast is a comedy storytelling podcast based on content from the hosts’ lives. Observational humorists Mark and Courtney have been friends for over 30 years; they discuss current events and strive to bring back the art of storytelling. In this hour, we hear about their background, riff on the state of culture, and discuss how podcasting fits into all of that.
QUADFATHER: How do you judge the size of a podcast? You look at how many reviews they have in iTunes.
SWANNY: The size of their shoes.
SWANNY: We actually started doing this 25 years ago.
QUADFATHER: We had handheld cassette recorders and would just talk to each other and mail them, like voice mail through US postal.
QUADFATHER: The abuse really went both ways for us.
QUADFATHER: You have to stick with it or else I’d leave him and go to a shelter.
MAXIMUS: For battered co-hosts.
SWANNY: I had all the characteristics of a child star later in life but was never a child star.
MAXIMUS: Swanny, how is it working with the Quadfather?
SWANNY: I owe him a lot of money actually.
SWANNY: My background is in neurosurgery.
MAXIMUS: Oh, so, it’s the mind vs. the brain.
QUADFATHER: In this day and age, we don’t have the time to deeply connect with another person in an extended conversation.
SWANNY: If I wasn’t guilty of the things he accuses me of I would put up a fight.
SWANNY: I’m actually not that fat.
SWANNY: Me and Guy Fieri grew up with each other.
QUADFATHER: Can Trump do it? That’s the question. My name is no.
QUADFATHER: I watched the debates. I just wanted to hear how people respond to Trump.
QUADFATHER: Who’s gonna be Trump’s running mate?
MAXIMUS: Oh my god – that would be season 10 of The Apprentice.
MAXIMUS: Fuck it. Let’s do the entire primary through reality television.
QUADFATHER: I think marriages should have expiration dates.
QUADFATHER: Til death do us part encourages spouses to kill each other.
MAXIMUS: The free agency of marriage?
SWANNY: Contract year is a good year.
QUADFATHER: If marriages were that easy to get out of, I’d have been out of it a long time ago. It’s the commitment that makes it work.
QUADFATHER: Without women in my life, I would be in a narcissistic spin.
