Blaurgh. I have the SADs now. The last cortandfatboy podcast is on December 7. For almost 10 years, Cort Webber and Bobby "Fatboy" Roberts (conflict of interest alert: Fatboy is the Mercury's calendar editor) have put out extremely funny audio content, first on the old-timey radio and for years now on their five-times-a-week podcasts. With a curated selection of Portland's funniest people (god, I will miss Wednesdays with Live Wire!'s Courtenay Hameister and Fridays with the Oregonian's Mike Russell), the duo made me laugh more consistently than any other source in town, in Hollywood, or in the podcastverse. Not just a great one-stop shop for funny, their local news and sundry geekery from all points beyond was top-fucking-notch.

Here's what Fatboy has to say about pulling the plug:

It seemed like a good time to go. Not to say we're even remotely in the realm of these two shows, but if given the choice, we'd rather be Cheers than The Simpsons, you know? So to everyone who still actually cares about our show: Thanks. And sorry. But mostly thanks, for everything.

They're still doing the podcast as usual until December 7, so get the goodness while you can. cortandfatboy have long described their show as "mediocre," but this is the furthest thing from the truth on this sad day for Portland's earholes.
