Weird Al Podcasts, Widgets, and More

Accordian-wielding parodist “Weirdl Al” Yankovic released the two-disc The Essential “Weird Al” Yankovic last month. If you own all of Yankovic’s albums, then there’s nothing new for you here. However, if you want all the hits, this is the best way to get them.

As part of the promotion for the album’s release, Legacy Recordings has produced a four-part podcast:

Comedians Tom Lennon and R Ben Garant joined Al’s road crew to make some cash after Comedy Central canceled their TV show, “Reno 911.” After only a few days on tour, they’re already here to tell all.

Throughout this four-part series, Tom and R lay down the truth the mainstream media doesn’t want you to hear. For example, Dr. Demento is not a real Doctor.

Download the first part here, and keep an eye on the Legacy podcasts page for the other three as they’re released. You can preview the release below, as well, with the nifty little widget.
