Vulture’s popular Good One podcast is relaunching under the Vox Media Podcast Network umbrella, following New York Media’s merger with Vox Media in 2019. Good One: A Podcast About Jokes initially launched in February 2017, and has featured in-depth interviews with comedians including Jerry Seinfeld, Seth Meyers, Whitney Cummings, Taika Waititi, and many more. Within the Vox Media Podcast Network ecosystem, Good One will follow a weekly format, posting new episodes every Tuesday. The relaunch will feature comedians including Michelle Wolf, Ronny Chieng, Michelle Buteau, Daniel Sloss, David Wain, and other comedy world luminaries.
Vulture senior editor and Good One host Jesse David Fox has applied journalistic rigor to his passion for comedy, writing a Vulture cover story on the 100 jokes that shaped modern comedy (and its sequel “100 More Jokes”), a definitive piece on the “second comedy boom” (a term he coined), giving readers an unprecedented look into the inner workings of the comedy world, with deep dives into late night shows, comedy specials, and more. He also helped launch Vulture’s pop culture extravaganza Vulture Festival, serving as executive producer and curator.
The first episode of the new Good One is out today, featuring an interview with comedian Michelle Buteau who has already had a big year with her role as host of Netflix’s reality show The Circle. In her Good One episode, she talks about #MeToo, sex scenes, and playing shows at “northeast colleges where motherfuckers show up in pajamas and just come for the chicken tenders.” Listen to it here or on your favorite podcast app, and tune in next Tuesday for a new episode of the show!
