The Best Podcast in the Universe

Maddox is back and possibly better than ever.

The Biggest Problem in the Universe features Maddox and Dick Masterson bitching about every problem in the universe. Listeners vote up/down on each problem to determine once and for all what the biggest problem in the universe is. Hilarity ensues.

Maddox has spent the last decade experimenting with various comedic enterprises, including books, tv shows, improv, and YouTube videos. During this time he’s been criticized for failing to update regularly. Now he’s putting out podcasts every week. His personality and style have been criticized for changing over the years. These podcasts not only embrace his evolution, they make the most of it.

Maddox is now primarily a satirist. Yes, that’s always been in his repertoire, but nowadays it’s his bread and butter. His new weapons of choice are facts, research, statistics, and argument. Combining that with his traditional rant style produces such excellence as his video on Spider-Woman’s Ass:

Don’t worry, Maddox’s stiffness on camera surprisingly doesn’t carry over to his podcasts. His fluid radio personality makes it believable that The New Maddox actually enjoys talking to people.

Dick Masterson‘s claim to fame is being a troll chauvinist.

Dick’s following is much smaller than Maddox’s. At first it appeared that would condemn him to being Maddox’s sidekick/punching bag. Lately though, Dick has really stepped it up and cemented himself as a worthy co-host.

I’m now up to date on every episode. You should be too.

  1. I had other things to do today you [person], now I’ve been listening to this for like 4 hours.

    Why am I getting caught in your spam filter I deserve preferential treatment. Seriously I can’t get past the filter do I have to delete my swears, what’s wrong with this filter. I’m going to keep typing in a fury until it either lets my comment through or I have to change my original message. Yep, had to change it. Your spam filter is forcing censorship. I’m putting this on the problems list.

    Even changing my message isn’t getting me through why does it think I’m spam AAAAUGHG

    EDIT: got through after removing my URL. Your filter thinks I’m spam damn it.

    • Before bashing my spam filter, consider how slow my website has been the past 2+ years. Since adding the new spam filter last month, my website has improved from being unreasonably slow to being reasonably slow. Besides, my spam filter shouldn’t take issue with foul language. It probably just thought you were lying.

      Note: If anyone else is having trouble with my new spam filter, let me know, preferably through something other than a comment.

  2. Problem is that they are podcasts and are over 40 minutes long.

    I find podcasts annoying to listen to because I don’t have anything to watch, so I end up doing something else. Problem is that if I’m doing something else then either the podcast is distracting me from what I’m doing, or I end up missing interesting things in the podcast and have to rewind. Both generally.

    • It’s a damn shame that it’s over, but I’m looking forward to his new podcast network. Maybe it’ll suck, who knows, but as long as Maddox isn’t going dormant like he did during the years leading up to the podcast, I’m ok with it. We’ll get his content in some form or another.
