Pod-crushes: The Crushes Brought To You By Audible.com and Listeners Like You
Podcrushes are a special type of crush. For podcast denizens such as we, these crushes transcend appearance, and are based solely upon personality (or, persona, at the very least). It's all a lot like that time Zack Morris fell for the girl in the wheelchair he'd only heard on the phone. It's not that we want to date them, necessarily; rather, we want to be their best friends, hang out with them and eat Pizza Rolls, discuss whether or not "Bates Motel" is effectively filling that "American Horror Story" insanity void, and, you know, if Mantzoukas wanted to get handsy, no big deal, that's just where the friendship went naturally.
Anyway, here they are.
Janet Varney -- "The JV Club"
Tom Cavanagh -- "Mike and Tom Eat Snacks"
Scott Mosier -- "SModcast"
Jason Mantzoukas -- "How Did This Get Made?"
Vanessa Ragland & Cole Stratton -- "Pop My Culture" (seen here with a similarly crush-worthy Erinn Hayes)
Dave Anthony & Greg Behrendt -- "Walking the Room"
TJ Miller -- "Cashing In With TJ Miller"
Kumail Nanjiani -- "The Indoor Kids"
Paul F. Tompkins -- "Pod F. Tompkast"
Doug Benson -- "Doug Loves Movies"
Joanna Robinson and Courtney Enlow personally know a few people who cast the pod. Those people were disqualified from this list lest things get awk.ward. But our #1 would totally be this guy from that show.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
