Hey Riddle Riddle

by Headgum
Leisure #24Games #3

Riddles! Puzzles! WhoDunnits! Adal Rifai, Erin Keif and John Patrick Coan, three of Chicago's most overrated improvisers, are on the case to solve every riddle, puzzle, brain-teaser, and head-scratcher known to humanity. Some riddles are almost impossible, some are absolutely improbable, and some simply have not aged well. And if you don't like riddles, don't worry! This podcast is barely about them!

    You take the S out of Safe and the F out of way
    Jesus, guys! It’s actually a good joke when you tell it right. Once they successfully take the s out of safe-because there IS an s in safe, they expect to be able to take an f out of way (and just way). THEN they point out the logical flaw and THENCEFORTH comes the amazing, hilarious punchline. Five stars.

    Fun Listen
    This podcast is a great distraction on a long commute or wherever you may be. The riddles aren’t too difficult, and the commentaries are animated and humorous.
  • HappyListener 😀
    So funny, love it!
  • takenna
    Apparently my exact brand of humor is people being mean to each other( but in a friendly way) whilst solving riddles that they absolutely hate. Can’t wait to keep listening

    Please listen to this podcast!
    Adal is an encyclopedia of puns, weird laughs and genius game making. Erin is a fashionable queen who deserves the world and more, her singing cures illness and you should always tell her how awesome she is. JPC is a random generator of the most hilarious words spoken by a person on purpose and maybe by accident. All together they form the most chaotic, wonderful, belly laugh inducing podcast. If I need a laugh, I always know where to go. Also works if I need to be confused. Please come to Kansas City, you’re all such wonderful people!

    “An intelligent riddle podcast”

    Ulterior motives
    I’ve listened to this podcast so much it’s permanently altered my brain chemistry. These 3 are the biggest celebrities in my mind which is only made funnier by the fact that I do improv with people who know them as “some guys” from Chicago. JPC if you read this one lemme know if you guys would want to participate in the KC Improv Festival when we arrange it for the 2023 season! I’ll be coordinating the out of town acts and would love to host you guys! Love, West from the Midwest.

    <insert Dean Scream>
    Discord just rolled out native soundboard capabilities in its voice chat. Naturally, I immediately added the Dean Scream to my gaming group’s server. In the course of a night of intense gaming, a friend mentioned that she loved that I added it as it was commonly used by one of her favorite podcasts… and that’s how I learned we were both huge RidHeads (that’s what fans are called, right?). Howard Dean. Still uniting people after all these years.

    From the reviews I’d heard, I expected an interesting riddle based show. Instead I got low effort “pickup improv”, live reads, and what could not even charitably called “puzzles”. For example - here’s a list of Angela Landsbury roles, now guess the actor! Or even “riddles” that would embarrass a popsicle stick. I’m not here to yuck anyone’s yum. For those who love it, good on you, and I hope for many more years of enjoyment for you. I’ll keep looking for an intelligent riddle based podcast.

    finally caught up :(
    Found this podcast when searching “riddles” in podcasts, and while I haven’t gotten a whole lot of “riddles” I have had many riddles-worth of fun listening to the full catalog of episodes (started at number 1 last summer). Now that I’m all caught up, I’m not so sure what to do - maybe I’ll stop listening for another five years and then binge again? Thanks Erin, Adal, and JPC for all the laughs :)

    They don’t appreciate rhythm enough
    This show is mostly pretty good except for one small problem. Whenever they try to sing the opening theme they usually say the drum part like low low high |: low low low high :| but it’s actually |: low low high low low low high low rest low high low low low high low :| (I’m not a drummer so I don’t know the proper way to notate that but I tried to approximate repeat symbols the best I could with keyboard characters) Even Arne, who wrote the theme, made this mistake in this latest episode. Why don’t you guys appreciate the rest? It gives the phrase so much more character!

    Love Michael Hitchcock
    Big fan of Michael Hitchcock. So funny and so quick at comebacks. Loved this episode.
  • LJD IV
    If you like comedy
    Then avoid this podcast.

    Back after leaving!
    Who Are These Podcasts brought me back after I was gone for a while. Very amusing show. Three great hosts: Adal tells a joke, Erin laughs at a joke, JPC is there. Five stars, even if I am on the "riddles are better than improv" team.
  • sahmpahl
    I love this show
  • D20gqprk
    This Podcast will make you cry-laugh IRL!
    So funny and chaotic! Come in with no expectations and Adal, JCP, and Erin will rise to the occasion EVERY WEEK!

    Cured My Anxiety
    When I’m experiencing a bout of paranoia about something terrible like a killer in my house or an impending zombie apocalypse or a nuke being launched and setting off a chain reaction of mutual nuclear annihilation, I can trust this podcast to snap me out of it because nothing like that could happen while audio this ridiculous in blasting in my ears. Thanks for the riddles, guys <3 (the name this is under is not mine, please disregard it -Rune, they/them)

    Bye forever
    Kareem, Doug, and Gina pose as improv friends who sometimes do riddles I guess. I’ve been here since the beginning but only came to know your true identities today. Does Station Management oversee HRR as well? Is Kashek really Brisket?? I don’t know what’s happening but it usually makes me laugh. Listening to this podcast is not a waste of your time.
  • RudeTalez=gret
    Listen to it. Or dont. Your funeral. You will be post potatoes.
  • EsurientSnake
    It’s like making new friends!
    I like to listen to the show with pictures of the hosts brought up on my computer so I can pretend I’m part of the conversation. Erin totally gets me

    Everyone knows I’m weird now
    This podcast has caused me and my partner to run around saying stuff like “bingo, bango, ha-tah-tah” and “baby baby crab Rangoon” and the follow up of “oh it’s from a riddle podcast” is an insufficient explanation. So now everyone knows I’m weird because these three podcasters have normalized this behavior for me. At least I will still have my para-social relationships when all of my other friends are gone. Five stars because Erin, Adal, and JPC are my best friends.

    Funny, improv based perdcast
    A fun podcast with 3 improvisers and friends that is a joy to listen to. This has replaced all other comedy podcasts for me. This will probably be the first podcast I actually pay for Patreon episodes once I get through all the eps. It’s that delightful! Keep up the good work, gang. Oh, and sometimes they tell riddles.
  • The stuff is good

    all is forgiven
    I left a previous review complaining about Adal but then he plugged til death do us blart so I take it all back
  • Twizzzly
    Don’t listen to this podcast on public transportation, walking down the street, around your roommate or family members unless you want to look like a crazy person cause you’ll be laughing so hard. Genuinely the amount of times I could not stop laughing on the nyc subway is atrocious. It’s strangely my comfort podcast probably because I have a broken sense of humor but so does everyone else. Listen to this podcast, five stars!!!! Bonus review from my dad “I can’t get into it cause they talk about their lives too much” I don’t know about that, I’m nosy and I enjoy pet stories!!!

    I used to have a personality
    I used to read books and listen to music. I meditated, I had opinions about philosophy. Then I discovered this show in June of 2022. I’ve already listened to the main feed through twice and today I finished the $5 tier of the Patreon episodes. I fall asleep to this show, and it’s the first thing I listen to when I wake up. My friends are annoyed that I keep trying to do improv games with them. I stopped reading books. I was on a date this weekend and I told the guy I needed a moment and I put in my headphones and listened to fifteen minutes of Hey Riddle Riddle. I guess I will have to get the $8 Patreon tier, because I don’t know what to do with myself without these three dum dums yelling in my ears all day. The irony is that I don’t like the show and told my friends recently that “I can’t recommend it”
  • DJNickyNickKnock
    Brings the haha’s and the hmms

    Hey Review Review!
    I recently found about Hey Riddle Riddle after they had appeared on an episode of Dungeons and Daddies. I absolutely love these goofballs and am eagerly binging the entire catalog. Currently on the AMA episode right after episode 40, and I am excited to see what lays in store. Thanks for all the laughs and many more!!

    This Podcast Almost Killed Me
    This podcast is really great! I’ve almost crashed my car twice while listening to it; turns out that if you say JP Riddles name 3 times in succession, he comes out of your car stereo and tries to take control of the wheel. It’s kind of like Beetlejuice but somehow worse? Anyways yeah he almost crashed my car, stole my kids, and squirrels invaded my home. Not sure what to do now, but I just keep listening in hopes a solution comes. Be warned!

    Last night
    I had a nightmare that I took a d pic (specifically a c shot) and sent it into hrr thinking that it would be super funny but then was mortified upon realizing what I had done. I then spent the rest of the dream trying to find a way to use the internet to email you to apologize. Let me tell you, I woke up feeling gross and stressssed lol. Hrr, I think I need a break. “Bye forever”
  • Whoredomez
    Love it can’t get enough
    I love the chaotic and bonkers minds of the trio, JPC ,Erin & Adel are the the best thing since the stooges I’ve also followed sitcom D&D & hello from the magic tavern. Good to see guest from these other shows try to solve riddles and get into wacky improve.
  • estus_b
    general muckery
    i don’t know why it took this long for me to finally write a five-star review for this spectacular podcast. every episode brightens my day and makes me laugh out loud. adal, erin, and jpc are maybe the funniest people alive, and i have failed to show how grateful i am for this show. i live in that failure. i acknowledge the failure, and i will let that failure make me stronger.
  • MasterKimbo
    10/5 stars
    I saw a box of Honey Smacks cereal at the grocery store and burst into uncontrollable laughter. Thanks, Hey Riddle Riddle!

    A 5 Star Review (from Thom, he/him, ok to say my name)
    This is JPC. These are my words, no one else’s. I need to leave the show forever because I pooped my pants so hard I broke my butt. And I can’t solve riddles without my butt! I know what you’re thinking: “JPC, surely your butt will heal in time and you can come back!” But no. It’s broken forever. That’s how hard I pooped my pants. So this is my final goodbye. And I’d like to leave you with these parting words: Bad news gang.
  • ItsElizaLee
    I Love Planet Money, Very Educational, Good For Business
    The screen on my personal phone (Android) is currently broken. So I’m listening on my work phone. Obviously I’d only listen to business content on my work phone. Business content like this podcast, Planet Money.

    The Title Of This Review Is
    And the review goes as follows, uh, da da dada dada, oh wait you know what, it's just one of those dumb meta posts where, uh, the reviewer tries to make it seem like I'm saying things off the cuff, when in fact the review just serves as the joke itself. Uh, yea, very funny, uh, Damian from Pittsfield, MA, if that is your real name. Please man, get some new material, meta jokes have been played out for a very long time now. I appreicate you listening but leave the jokes to the professionals.
  • Chang3d L8ter
    Great content 99% of the time
    I love this show. The riddles (while having taken a back seat since the earlier episodes) are just enticing enough to keep me entertained on drives. That being said, the improv…. Is also great! Hilarious and light hearted. There have been a handful of times however where some of the hosts have made pretty bold political statements that are honestly a bit annoying in the context of a “riddle/improv podcast” that’s really the only negative though, I still love all the hosts. If I wanted generalized statements about politics, I would listen to Joe Rogan.

    Permission to use my name
    As we all know, I, JPC, am not actually a human. I am, however, a seahorse. Erin, Adal, I am very happy to announce that I am pregnant! We just got the news last week and I couldn’t wait to tell you! I am very excited for this next step in my life and wanted to take this time to warn you that my seahorse tummy will get bigger in the coming months, as it is the male seahorse’s duty to carry the babies to term! So, please be patient with me as I may have to get up more often to pee in the future, as well as beginning to eat weird foods during recordings. Thank you! I’m so excited!

    Permission to use my first and last name
    I’d like to share a fun drinking game that some friends and I used to play. It could be played with a group or alone. It could also be played while listening to Hey Riddle Riddle, even when commuting to work in the morning. Gather a collection of your favorite alcoholic beverages. Put on any Dane Jeffery Cook comedy special (or episode of Hey Riddle Riddle). Every time a joke is told and you do not laugh you have to drink. This continuous until you genuinely laugh at a joke. Once you laugh you are not allowed to drink anymore, walk away or turn off the special (or episode). If you are playing with a group, the special (or episode) is not allowed to be turned off until all members of the party laugh. So go and gather your best friends and surprise them with an episode of a podcast that they definitely never heard of or a Dane Jeffery Cook comedy special; I suggest “Rough Around the Edges: Live from Madison Square Garden” as that special titled Dane as the second comedian to ever sell out Madison Square Garden (you heard that correctly) and have the most unforgettable night, or commute, of your life!

    Hey clue crew
    I have been listening since 2021 and I love the show I know all the lyrics for both mainstream and patreon I used to think that the “cabin of the airplane” was the cat end of a airplane

    I love podcasts
    Podcasts are a great form of entertainment. They are little audio stories fed directly into your ears whenever you want them. Some are funny, some are dramatic and some are neither. My favorite podcast is DrinkIN GeekOUT where four friends review craft beer and talk about the things they love.

    Hey Ridle Ri

All in all it’s not very good, my compliment to the Swedish cherf. Werlcerm ter berverly ! I give it two stars

  • Does not work to potential
    An amazing avant-garde post-modern absurdist work
    Think Waiting for Godot meets the movie Brazil. The hero and main character, Casey Toney is almost never heard. The podcast starts with three comedians who have been given the chance to have their own podcast. As time goes on, the comedians realize that they lack any skills to create a coherent podcast and that the premise of the podcast is thin. Every week our hero and everyman, Casey need to take piles of insane audio and try to turn it into something resembling a podcast. As time goes on the comedians start running out of ideas and the podcast keeps becoming more and more unhinged. Meanwhile Casey has to try to hold things together. The insanity goes to a whole new level when, instead of trying to improve the podcast, the comedians instead create two more premium podcasts. It is easily one of the greatest works of art of the new millennium. Also, Adal, Erin and JPC are hilarious!
