Canada's Top Comedy Podcast, STOP PODCASTING YOURSELF, Celebrates 500 EpisodesThree-time Canadian Comedy Award-winning podcast, "Stop Podcasting Yourself," celebrates its 500th episode on Monday, October 16, 2017.

Based in Vancouver and hosted by comedians Graham Clark and Dave Shumka, "Stop Podcasting Yourself" is a weekly free-form comedy podcast that features a different guest each week and has fans from around the world. It is the only Canadian podcast featured on L.A.-based network, Maximum Fun, which is run by Jesse Thorn and features comedy shows by John Hodgman ("Judge John Hodgman"), the McElroy Brothers ("My Brother, My Brother and Me"), and Adam Conover ("Adam Ruins Everything").

"SPY is the only podcast I listen to regularly. Graham and Dave are hilarious and genuinely spontaneous. They also manage to come across as truly pleasant young chaps, even when they're eviscerating some shallow showbiz bonehead." - Brent Butt

"Stop Podcasting Yourself" started in 2008 when Dave, who met Graham at a comedy show, asked if they should do a podcast together. Since then, the podcast has regularly appeared on numerous 'Best Of' lists and has garnered three Canadian Comedy Awards: two for Best Podcast and one for Best Audio Series (beating out some fine CBC radio shows, Clark and Shumka would like to point out).

"Shumka and Clark capture the absurdity of everyday situations in a way that makes it hard for an episode of Stop Podcasting Yourself to disappoint." - Onion AV Club

Tompkins, Brent Butt, Nikki Glaser, Debra DiGiovanni, Dana Gould, Jon Dore, Jimmy Pardo, Jen Kirkman, Cynthia Hopkins, Rory Scovel, Matt Braunger, Scott Thompson, Todd Glass, Alicia Tobin, Charlie Demers, Ivan Decker, and many more. The live shows have sold out all over Canada.
