What I’m Listening To – Tread Perilously (Podcast)

I listen to a handful of podcasts via iTunes and Overcast every week.  Of course, I’ve discussed “My Dad Wrote a Porno” before in this blog.  My fondness for MDWAP is due primarily to the Everest levels of insane hilarity it causes (seriously, I’ve nearly injured myself laughing will listening to MDWAP).  Most of the other podcasts I listen to are Geek / Pop Culture oriented, which should come as no surprise.

Tread Perilously marries up the hilarity with the geekness with the pop culture and throws in a hefty measure of intelligent critical thinking for good measure.  And it’s a brand new addition to the Fanbase Press podcast network, home of Fanbase Weekly, which I co-host along with Bryant and Barbra Dillon, and Drew Siragusa.

Tread Perilously is a weekly “worst of TV” podcast.

Watching the worst episodes of popular shows, hosts Erik Amaya and Justin Robinson attempt to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on its most off-key moments. TV shows regularly tread upon include Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and 7th Heaven.

From family dramas to well-loved but brief sci-fi series, Tread Perilously examines how a show sustains itself even in its worst moments.
