What up players! After interviewing their dream guest Jon Hamm on their 100th episode, Podcast But Outside has now set its sights on an even juicier white whale: doing live indoor shows! Hosts Cole Hersch and Andrew Michaan are bringing their “interview strangers on the street” podcast to the stage, and it’s totally legal and there’s nothing you can do to stop them. This show is very wild, fun, and unpredictable. Will they interview you? Will they bring in some random people off the street? Will they completely fix your broken life? The only way to find out is to buy a ticket, watch the show, and then check in with yourself later to discover the answers to those very questions!
The hosts employ “deadpan humour, often bordering on satire.’ The edited video often shows “zoom-ins, graphics, and flashbacks to past episodes” for further entertainment. Reoccurring gags are the hosts “lying about their ages and bleeping out other podcasts’ names because they are competition.” There is an estimated 5–10% success rate in courting passersby to agree to an interview. Upon completion of the interview, guests are customarily given a single US dollar as well as a sticker for their participation. During the COVID-19 lockdown, the show took to Omegle and featured a dating competition and video therapy sessions.
The show’s 100th episode featured actor Jon Hamm, “a guest they’d been manifesting since the early days of the pod.”
