Funemployment Radio
Greg Nibler and Sarah X Dylan's Podcast. Intelligent conversations about ridiculous situations. Based out of Portland, Oregon, both are former Commercial Broadcasters, who decided to break off and do it on their own. They have been sharing their lives and amazing guests, 5 days a week, since 2009.

Google is clearly in need of assistance in naming their assistant and Greg is here to the rescue with his proposal. This apparently stems from a long history of being a good "namer", however, the live audience begs to differ. In World of Crazy: Instagramability, Guiness World Record, Newman, Yodeler School, Brothel.
