This Week in Despair is a comedy podcast summary of the week's news, hosted by Peter–john Byrnes.

Latest Episodes

Episode 115 - Lisa Cohen and Cynthia Kaplan

The show rediscovered the mission statement inherent in its title this week, as the 2016 Presidential election came to a close with a twist ending that no one expected, not even the candidates. Lisa Cohen and Cynthia Kaplan join me to sort through our shock, provide irresponsible speculation as to what the heck happened, and to trash Florida, because we're still elitist. Nudist libertarians are discussed. Breaking terrible news to one's children is a topic. Plus: Snake Island!

Episode 110 - Trace Beaulieu

On this Very Special Episode, I am pleased to welcomeTrace Beaulieu, the man who was both Dr. Forrester and Crow on the beloved television series Mystery Science Theater 3000. This poor man gets dragged into our usual nonsense about the Panama Papers, black lesbians from Skokie, and a planet that is supposed to destroy the Earth next month, but we also manage to talk about Manos: The Hands of Fate and his latest project, touring the country with Frank Conniff doingthe live show The Mads Are Back. It's a very nice conversation with a lovely man.

Episode 64 - Stephanie Hasz and Mike Lawrence

In the middle of a week ofsub-zero temperatures,MikeLawrencecame through Chicago and sat down withStephanie Haszto talk about Chris Christie and Bridge-gate and a man who hasn't bathed in 60 years, but then we mostly ended up talking about television shows. A story about Cormac McCarthy's ex-wife descends into a series of vagina-themed jokes. Mike and Stephanie argue about the merits of Star Trek. I trot out my Norm Abram impression from This Old House, and then we defame Full House. Also, Mike was dealing with a faulty microphone, which is why he sounds like he's reporting from inside a bathroom.This is a very silly episode.
