Shows Similar to ‘Opie and Anthony’

This article recommends an underrated title, a must-see title, an unknown title, an ‘if you like, you will like’ title and an unexpected title so you have different options when it comes to choosing your next movie to watch.



‘The Alex Jones Show’ (Genesis Communications Network, 1999- )

Boisterous Texan libertarian and conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, is generally regarded as a lunatic, but his long-standing radio show is mostly a relatively sober affair which deals with everything from alternative health to the encroachment of the surveillance state.

Conspiracy theories are woven into the narrative and his rants can be quite hilarious, but on a more serious level, ‘The Alex Jones Show’ is a pretty worthwhile listening experience with a wide array of high-profile guest appearing on air to deal with a great variety of topics.


Similarity Match

An entertaining and surprisingly informative talk show. 



‘The Tom Leykis Show’ (The New Normal Network, 1995- )

This show was amongst the most popular the KLSX network had to offer for many years, although Leykis now broadcasts via an online stream.

This is primarily a show for men – deliberately outrageous and provocative. If you’re easily offended, you may want to avoid this one.

Otherwise, it’s excellent choice for fan anyone seeking a radio series like ‘Opie and Anthony’ with plenty of solid life advice for men covering everything from work, finance and relationships in the 21st century.


Similarity Match

A no-holds-barred show for a male audience. 



‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ (Youtube/Ustream, 2009- )

UFC commentator, ‘Fear Factor’ host and renaissance man, Joe Rogan, started hosting his own podcast in 2009 and his show has attracted a significant audience over the past few years.

With loads of interesting guests from various fields discussing everything from science to DMT experiences, this is an engaging and often humorous show with a wide array of topics discussed in-depth.


Similarity Match

One of the best podcast shows on the net. 



‘Savage Nation’ (Cumulus Media Networks, 1995- )

Michael Savage’s controversial talk show program is well worth checking out if you’re looking for a series similar to ‘Opie and Anthony’ as their political leanings are both inclined quite strongly to the right.

For scathing indictments of Obama’s presidency and critiques of leftist policy, look no further than ‘Savage Nation’.


Similarity Match

A cut above standard right-wing talk radio. 


If You Like ‘Opie and Anthony’, You Will Like

‘The Howard Stern Show’ (Sirius XM Holdings, 1986- )

Undoubtedly, this is the most famous/infamous talk show in the US.

Howard Stern’s been leading the field for three decades, largely owing to hysterically inappropriate content. From mocking retards and oddballs to allowing Klansmen to deliver political diatribes littered with racial epithets, Howard Stern has broadcast an abundance of politically incorrect content over the years.

Nowadays, it’s not as outrageous as it was ten or twenty years ago (sadly), but this a show you really do need to listen to if you’re a fan of offensive and tasteless humour.


Similarity Match

The king of US radio.
