Maybe my favorite podcast of all time. Greg is hilarious, preachy, goofy, vulgur, intellectual, crude and a whole lot more. He'll speak at length about movies, books, music, politics and culture, all with his own personal style and spin. He also throws in incredible, spot-on impressions now and then. Also, the fact that his podcasts are in front of a live audience adds to the ambiance, and it's equally great with a good audience or a bad one (when he'll start calling them out).

Part of what I like about Greg, though, is that while he may be a bit of a pretentious jerk, he is at least self-aware enough to recognize that, and makes fun of himself frequently.

Generally, i don't buy apps or do subscription podcasts. While i do use my share of free apps, my phone is still more of a phone than a "social networking tool" or "business communication device." You get the idea.

This is the first app i've bought in quite a while. Sure, his material is available freely, but $2, ONCE, to support the podcast is a killer compromise. I'm not coughing up cash monthly, but i can still do my small part to show support the podcast.

His own brand of thought provoking and humorous commentary make me feel less insane and depressed for thinking so little of the world around me.

I am a huge fan of Greg Proops and this is a fantastic app for listening to his podcasts. All the episodes are here, from the beginning, two years ago up to the present. I have run into problems with this app failing to load the podcasts when using 3G, also there's also the occasional streaming issue where the show will simply stop; which is the only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star rating. Overall; a good, easy to use app whose minor problems keep it from perfection.

Greg Proops is an absolute force of nature. Intelligent comedy prose spews straight from his lips and unapologetic rants burst forth from his loins to bring you laughs and inform you (even when the facts are wrong; Screw it, it's about the comedy).

As for the app, it could be better. It takes a while to load and not every episode has extras, but it does the very best thing a podcast app can do (at least for Android - I don't know what Apple makes them do): it saves your place in an episode! Good enough for me.

And may all your pages be Satchel Paiges.

To start off- this is my absolute favorite podcast and I would have no problem paying even a monthly fee to access it- let alone this small one-time payment. Greg is smart, funny, and a refreshing look at everything from obscure baseball history to current political discourse.
That said, the app is VERY buggy- most every time I use it, it makes my phone freeze on the lock screen and I end up having to take the battery out. I can't find a difference in access between "streaming" a podcast and "downloading" it- I can't find the downloaded podcast in my phone so as to not increase my data usage by streaming. It is also very difficult to move to different parts of an episode, for instance, to fast-forward is a guessing game of whether it will even play after you move the bar.
In short, although this is odd, my best recommendation is to buy the app to support the artist, but then rarely use it and primarily listen to the podcasts from your computer.

The only app I will.ever party for. Thank you Mr. Proops for this excellent podcast! 1.99 is completely worth the extras you get. Also, the sound quality is spectacular!

The podcast is wonderful, unfortunately, the app is quite bad. It stalls and freezes (not the sound, the app), it sometimes keeps playing through a call, it won't always work properly if you do anything else on your phone while listening to it, sometimes it won't pause the podcast, and it doesn't remember which podcasts you've favourited unless you download them. Anyway I recommend downloading it as it is an easier way to access the podcasts on your phone.
