The Caustic Soda Podcast

caustic-soda-podcastAfter listening to The Caustic Soda podcast, I couldn’t figure out the best way to describe it. I went to the Caustic Soda website and used their description.

Caustic Soda is a weekly podcast about science, horrible news and humor hosted by Toren Atkinson, Kevin Leeson and Joe Fulgham. Each episode of Caustic Soda takes a gruesome, gory or otherwise horrible topic, such as shark attacks, parasites and radiation, and breaks it down into an easily-digestible bubbling paste of funny!  The hosts discuss the topic’s origins, recent news and pop culture.

Each episode takes on a subject and the hosts tell you everything, you wanted, or didn’t want, to know, usually focusing on the strange or disturbing. The general mood of the talk is lighthearted humor, even if the theme is a bit dark. New stories, pop, science, history, myths are all examined. Images and videos that are referred to in the show can be found on the Caustic Soda website.

I also liked the way in between sections old music is played.

While I really enjoyed this podcast, I will warn you that this show it definitely not for everyone. You will probably love it or hate it. The shows are usually of an adult nature, so if that doesn’t bother you. I’d advise you to check out this podcast.
