The AV Club’s Best Podcasts of 2020 – Double Threat
The AV Club selected Double Threat as one of the Best Podcasts of 2020, naming the Tom Scharpling and Julie Klausner-hosted podcast the year’s “Best Team Up.”
Double Threat sees Scharpling and Klausner harnessing their comedic chemistry to rip apart all the creeps and overpaid mediocrities that pollute the media landscape. On a recent episode, the duo hate-listened to Alec Baldwin’s insensitive interview with Woody Allen on NPR. While rolling their eyes at all the bullshit and evasions coming thick and fast from both men, Tom and Julie make time for digressions about Allen’s career as a Batman villain writing riddles for the Riddler alongside Neil Simon… [This episode] makes it clear that, more than anything else, Double Threat is about two funny friends trying to keep each other sane.
