How to Do Everything

What Is It
The hosts and occasional guests discuss the best ways to do numerous things.
This show aired its final episode in November of 2016. The iTunes page has the final 210 episodes, which is kind of an odd number but whatever. The official site is an absolute cluster**** and one of the hardest sites to navigate that I’ve ever seen, but maybe you can find older episodes there, who the **** knows. Too bad they never got around to an episode about how to build a website.
What About It
This seems like it would be right in my wheelhouse: quirky hosts, a wide variety of strange topics, etc. Episodes have included topics from the large and philosophical (how to survive a loveless marriage) to the practical (how to win at arm-wrestling) to the esoteric (how to snack quietly at the movies). But somehow this show never quite worked its magic on me. I didn’t find it particularly clever and the hosts weren’t particularly entertaining. Too bad; I like the hook and they even had some strange and interesting topics, but the show itself just never landed. It’s not terrible, just not that good.
2 ½ stars.
Your life often comes down to a coin toss, so you need to know how to win.
