After being off last week due to someone deciding to go on vacation or whatever, Podjiba is back with an episode that is not significantly longer, yet seems to have more content within! It’s probably overflowing, is what I’m saying.

And a big reason for that is the fact that Podjiba’s Fiscal First Quarter Categorization Challenge is back for 2023! This year’s tournament features 32 streaming-only shows that we have selected and will narrow down over the month as we debate which one is the official Podjiba best streaming show of all time (of the year)!

The person who drafted the winning show will get to decide what we rewatch in July. Also bragging rights!

(Note: the bracket seeds were completely randomized, which means we will probably be very angry at several points in this tournament.)

Here are everyone’s selections:

The Mandalorian
I Think You Should Leave
Mythic Quest
Only Murders In The Building
Orange Is The New Black
Umbrella Academy
Bojack Horseman
Squid Game
Sex Education

Reservation Dogs
The Great
Good Omens
Midnight Mass
Haunting of Hill House
Poker Face

Ted Lasso
Station Eleven
The Afterparty
The Bear
For All Mankind

And the bracket:

Who has the best selection of shows? And what show do you think will eventually win? Sound off below!

Oh, before I forget, we also had a normal podcast too, where we talked about television and whatnot. Like the most recent episode of The Last Of Us, the return of Party Down on Starz, and some of our other weekly favorites like Poker Face, Shrinking, and Tori’s Kung Fu Corner!

(Dustin may have even glitched at one point, which was not edited out for reasons.)

But, you know. It’s bracket time! So follow along as we decide through our totally rigorous and scientific process on the top streaming show that at least some of us have seen!

Podjiba! The podcast that would never infringe on anyone else’s shining moment in this third month of the year, especially when it comes to brackets or tournaments or any sort of general insanity involving such things. But it is available generally wherever you can find podcasts (as long as they’re all updating their feeds, sometimes it takes a while or I have to send an email). Also, it’s below!
