RICK AND MORTY: One of the Best (and Most Hilarious, and Existential, and Poignant) Shows in Our Universe

**NOTE** The show “Rick and Morty” is part of Cartoon Network’s [Adult Swim] and as such, many of the topics on the actual show (and by extension, some of the discussion on this particular podcast episode) may not be suitable for younger listeners.  Think PG-13.


So, have you heard about this cartoon called “Rick and Morty”?  If you’ve listened to the podcast for awhile, you’ve certainly heard us refer to it before.  In this episode, Andy Farnsworth, Adam Thomas and Aaron Zundel go in-depth on what we think is one of the most brilliant shows on TV right now.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better combination of humor, deep-thinking moments, philosophical questions/debate, weirdness, sci-fi, improv, creativity and hidden meaning anywhere than in this show created by Dan Harmon (“Community”).

So whether you’re already a fan, or just curious to know what all the fuss is about, have a listen and prepare yourself to laugh and think.

Also, special thanks to Will Schoder for letting us use audio of his YouTube video “Rick and Morty – Finding Meaning in Life”.  The video can be found at
