The 25 Coolest Things We Discovered in 2016

It's not just us right? There are too many damn movies and TV shows to keep up with. When we're not in the middle of a season of Game of Thrones, Westworld, Silicon Valley, Stranger Things, or House of Cards, there are always 40 other shows just waiting to get started. If only you were ready to make the commitment. Your girlfriend wants you to propose but you can't even commit to Six Feet Under, let alone the next 60 years of your life.This glut of TV shows we're experiencing completely fails to lack the steady stream of quality movies coming out not only in the US but all around the world. And the surplus of movies doesn't even address how behind you are on music. Open up Spotify or look at the next festival lineup and you can barely recognize a third of the bands there. And we're not being old fogies complaining about music these days-- most of these bands are good-- we just can't keep up with them. 21 Pilots, 21 Savage, 21 Scarecrows. Only one of those band names is completely made up.So to give a little order to this exponentially insane world, Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked editors Soren Bowie and Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to talk about some of their favorite they discovered in 2016. They commiserate about the superabundance of content and Soren gives some completely unsolicited home improvement advice.Our next live podcast is on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles. Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark from 'My Favorite Murder' are back for another hour of creepy unsolved murders and even creepier solved ones. Tickets are $5 and on sale soon at sunset.ucbtheatre.com ( https://goo.gl/UNy5YF )Footnotes:Website: Pandora -- Search Standup:  https://goo.gl/tXZB Video: Youtube FanFest:  https://goo.gl/RhW2jK Netflix: John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid:  https://goo.gl/EPZMWF HBO: Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds:  https://goo.gl/zIxXV4 Album: Kyle Kinane: Loose in Chicago:  https://goo.gl/UYTPsS Netflix: Michael Che Matters:  https://goo.gl/TiM4Jm Video: Dave Chappele SNL Monologue:  https://goo.gl/5D6dB0 Website: Nextdoor:  https://goo.gl/R1XSI Video: Red Letter Media: Wheel of the Worst #11:  https://goo.gl/zYUXeo YouTube: Jim Sterling:  https://goo.gl/r4SguC Wikipedia: Square Screws:  https://goo.gl/uGtgQY Amazon: Wet Vacuums: https://goo.gl/auLfij The Elf on the Shelf:  https://goo.gl/I9CJ0P Screenplay: Monsters, Inc:  https://goo.gl/71xVcx Video: Train to Busan (Trailer):  https://goo.gl/4Zbxfo Video: I Saw The Devil (Trailer):  https://goo.gl/6ojCqo Netflix: Amanda Knox:  https://goo.gl/y4LTOa Netflix: David Blaine: Real or Magic?:  https://goo.gl/olbb48 Netflix: Planet Earth:  https://goo.gl/vrZwiE Video: Bill Burr Makes a Pie Crust:  https://goo.gl/rJ5CV8 Netflix: F is for Family:  https://goo.gl/Cnokr6 Website: Stitcher:  https://goo.gl/R5h4rX Podcast: Science Vs:  https://goo.gl/Fa4g7D Podcast: Doughboys:  https://goo.gl/idq8zm Podcast: The Bill Simmons Podcast with Andy Cohen:  https://goo.gl/ok3LTs Video Game: The Last Guardian:  https://goo.gl/PTRsMj Video: Robyn "Call Your Girlfriend" on SNL:  https://goo.gl/CC2ozz Video: Chance the Rapper "Same Drugs" on SNL:  https://goo.gl/1TOJ3R This episode is brought to you by Squarespace (www.squarespace.com code: CRACKED) and I.T. is Greater Than Sci-Fi podcast (www.vmware.com/radius/scifi)
