Rubber Chicken Audio is a home for audible waveforms of all shapes and sizes, from sketch comedy podcasts to radio plays, songs and whatever seems like a fun distraction on any given Tuesday.
Our original website, TheRubberChickeN64, began as an obscure and offbeat Nintendo fanpage in 2000. As we became less fixated on sincere Banjo-Kazooie reviews and more on ridiculous animated GIFS, we realised we were better off as a self-proclaimed “comedy” website.
With a new dream of becoming a polite SomethingAwful.com knock-off, we relaunched as The Rubber Chicken and had a wonderful, creative run. We attracted a small but loyal fanbase, befriended some startlingly talented writers and embarked on a decade of bizarre editorials, critiques of ’90s cartoons and general tomfoolery. (Oh! And remember that rumour about John Rhys-Davies being cast as General Grievous in Star Wars Episode III? That was us. We’re a culturally relevant SomethingAwful.com knock-off.)
When we started The Rubber Chicken Podcast in 2006, it quickly became our new calling. Even as updates slowed and production stalled; even as we accumulated spouses, jobs and adult lives, we each kept a special, podcast-shaped hole in our hearts. It’s a life-threatening affliction that remains proudly untreated to this day.
