‘National Lampoon Radio Hour: The Podcast’ Comes to Spotify Ahead of 50th Anniversary

Are you a National Lampoon fan? Then we’ve got news for you: National Lampoon Radio Hour: The Podcast, will be released on Spotify December 19—and starting with the third episode on December 26, Spotify users will have exclusive access to new episodes of the show —just in time for the 50th anniversary of National Lampoon magazine.

The comedy radio show, which started in 1973 and ran for over a year, now has the opportunity to entertain a new generation of listeners through its rebirth as a podcast. New and old fans alike can get excited for the revival of the program, which kicked off the careers of comedic greats including John Belushi, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, and Harold Ramis, among others.

National Lampoon Radio Hour: The Podcast brings brand-new programming featuring comedic talent such as Cole Escola, Jo Firestone, and Brett Davis. Spotify listeners will also get exclusive access to original content from the 1970’s radio show from stand-up legends. 

So, to all the Debbie Downers out there: we’ve got something to cheer you up. Tune into the twisted “National Lampoon’s Christmas Podcast” episode with a special guest (the one and only Debbie Downer herself, Rachel Dratch) and get ready for the National Lampoon revival you didn’t know you needed with an amalgam of hilarious sketches, characters, tunes, and more.

Listen to the trailer below, and check back in for the launch on December 19.
