Question: Name that podcast.

Fri, 08 Dec 2006 16:13:51 -0800

Here's a NameFilter for you: I've just started a new podcast. It's a chat show, with a focus on intelligent humor. We're trying to give it a name. Any ideas?

We've come up with The Bombardment Society & Kite Flying Club. Our show (already up and running for some time) is The Sound of Young America. We might just name it Maximum Fun, which is sort of an unofficial slogan for the other show. I'm looking for ideas that suggest fun without sounding like the name of an improv group (eg: Mixed Nutz).

Love love love The Sound of Young America! Big fan.

My immediate idea (which seems less funny the more I rethink it) is "The Club that Will Have You." It's a play on the line in Annie Hall: "I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member."

Perhaps I'm too starstruck to come up with something better. Happy to have you here, Jesse.

A Pair of Ragged Claws

or just

Ragged Claws

I wasn't sure if I was supposed to post a link... this is the first episode of the show, as "Untitled Thorn/Morris Project."

That's a good suggestion, btw, Cold Chef, though it's worth noting that's originally a Groucho Marx line.

OMG I am such a huge fan, Jesse! My lame contribution, mainly just so I could ass-kiss, is:

Haha, awesome. I'm listening to TSOYA right now! (Hi Jesse!)

I know you are asking for suggestions for a new name, but can I say that I love the current one? It's ironic, retro yet fresh, and the theme song is rockin. Maybe other hardcore fans are similarly attached? That said, the name did confuse me a little at first, so it might be a good idea to change to something descriptive & shorter if your goal is immediate radioland takeover...

I too wish to ass-kiss to your greatness. (awesome shows Jesse!)

I like Morris Thorn.
(kind of what you were talking about at the beginning of the show)

He sounds like some 60s swinger dude.

To clarify... this is for the *new* podcast, The Sound of Young America will stay such until I inevitably get sued by Motown.

Two peas in a pod?
Three peas in a pod?

I'm ashamed to admit I'm unfamiliar with your show. Is the format one host, one guest? Number of host equal number of peas.

Unregistered Cheesecake.

Don't ask me, it was a phrase that randomly turned up in my head one day. Might as well air it out here I guess.

Better yet it gets no google hits as a phrase. Maybe it will now. Hello, posterity!

I like bighappyfunhouse's idea: Morris Thorn. I also like the name Big Happy Fun House, but I guess that's taken already. How about The Morris Thorn Hour of Fun? Or just Big Happy?

This doesn't really fit your requirements, but because I'm such a Steve Martin fan: Cruel Shoes.

Another idea: Seriously Fun

(huge TSOYA fan here, Jesse. keep up the good work.)

I would like to kiss BigHappy's ass, too, because his operation is golden as well.

I like Cruel Shoes a lot, but that seems not like an homage, more like a rip-off :).

Right now we're brainstorming some ideas from William Carlos Williams, who happens to be a hero of both of us.

BTW, apparently this is the winner: Jordan, Jesse GO!

By: YoungAmerican

Sun, 17 Dec 2006 20:53:35 -0800

Yeah, we narrowed down some of our ideas and some listener ideas to a poll, which revealed that the names we'd thought of so far were lukewarm for our listeners. And then I thought of Jordan, Jesse GO!, and called Jordan. He said, "Boom. That's it."
