You don't have to look far to find one. This week we've got a lineup of podcast picks that will make you giggle, groan and guffaw. 

Sometimes the cringiest moments become the funniest stories. That's the case for Felicia, who broke her rule of not dating coworkers only to experience a date so bad, so unbelievable that she'd go on to share it on the CBC podcast True Dating Stories. 

Plus, is there anything more incredible than what people choose to share on the internet? The podcast Beach Too Sandy, Water Too Wet uncovers the comedy of online reviews. What's not to love about a children's book? Just read the reviews. Siblings and hosts Alex and Christine have curated some of the worst reviewed children's books.

All that and more. We promise you'll find a new funny favourite in this episode.

Podcasts featured this week:

Off Menu: "In this food podcast, hosts Ed Gamble and James Acaster invite guests to create their dream menu. Here, comedian Jamali Maddix makes a peculiar choice for his main course: alligator cheesecake (based on his experience eating it in New Orleans)." 

Beach Too Sandy, Water Too Wet: "Siblings Alex and Christine read out terrible online reviews for children's books and guess which book they refer to."

True Dating Stories: "A woman tells the story of a horrible first date she went on with a coworker who appropriates black culture to impress her. From then on, it just gets worse and worse when he dines and dashes and gets a tattoo of her name on his lip."

We Got This with Mark and Hal: "SNL comedian Bobby Moynihan often did sketches with the Sesame Street character, Gonzo, and in 2013 Moynihan went on Sesame street himself. In this clip, hosts Mark and Hal, and Moynihan discuss who is the best Sesame Street character." 

Maintenance Phase: " In a special crossover episode, Sarah Marshall of You're Wrong About joins her former co-host Michael Hobbes along with Aubrey Gordon on Maintenance Phase. In this clip they talk about the Scarsdale Diet which was popular in the 1970s." 

Mortified: "People read excerpts from journal entries written by their younger selves. Leonard had a crush on his college roommate, Danny, who unfortunately, was straight. Living together presented many hardships for Leonard- including when Danny and his girlfriend, Lauren, ate all of his brownies."
