About the Podcast

Beat A Dead Source
Three Friends, Three Points of View, A Bunch of Jokes and Comedy, and topics including current events, politics, science, racism, philosophy and whatever is on our minds that week.
Beat a Dead Source is a podcast by three friends with varying backgrounds trying to change each other's minds and make each other laugh. We cover a range of topics including current events, politics, science, racism, philosophy and whatever is on our minds that week.

We have a high regard for accuracy and while we don't always get it right during the conversation there's always room for a "fact check"© to make sure we retroactively always never didn't fail to miscomprehend what we weren't talking about.

So if you like heated arguments between friends, probably more laughing than is good for the recording process, puns and super weird audio stingers in the middle of episodes then do I have a podcast for you.

Socrates. Abraham Lincoln. Mahatma Gandhi. Our podcast doesn't feature any of these people, but we'd like to think they'd be our biggest fans. If you want to soothe your eardrums with the sweet sound of the greatest audio ever recorded, give us a listen. You won't regret it.
