Take Your Pick

Hosted by Chris Piuma

Pick a topic, any topic. Best 80s one-hit wonder? Best soundtrack to a video game? Best 19th century novel? Best... pie? All right, here’s the game: We each take turns picking something that fits the category, and we explain why we chose it. If we pick it, no one else gets to pick it. After a few rounds, we see what teams we’re left with. That’s right, it’s a draft — a format that we learned about from The Incomparable, but which dates back to the dawn of civilziation, when people drafted their picks for “best simple machines”. (Pulley, right?)

We played this game for several weeks back in 2020, and we keep thinking about bringing the show back. In the meantime, enjoy watching the old episodes on a YouTube playlist.
