"It's time to babble the fuck on," usually starts the ridiculously comical improv/blathering of KROQ's Ralph Garmin and the near-iconic Kevin Smith's podcast show. They discuss everything from film to TV to comics to Garmin's massive testiculars (a reoccurring theme, actually) in front of a live audience. Jokes go flying, dirty puns come out swinging, but the best is when Smith, who excudes a sincerely warmhearted disposition, cracks himself up. Our favorite segment is the "Shout Outs" portion of the show, where audience members request Garmin to say oddball things in one of his many, absurdly on-target character voices. If you need a warm-up before the show, listen to the pair's podcast from Comic Con.
