The Pod is the second studio album by Ween, originally released by Shimmy Disc in 1991.

Most often considered the band's "challenging album," The Pod (named for the apartment Dean & Gene shared in which all of the album's songs were recorded) is probably the band's most surreal. All of the songs have a murky, sludgy quality to them, possibly due to being recorded on a four-track, and many of the vocals are manipulated in strange ways. The lyrics are also quite druggy and bizarre. Contributing factors may have been drug use (the album notes claim that the band used Scotchguard as a recreational drug, although this may not be true), and the fact that Dean & Gene both came down with cases of mononucleosis during the recording of the album.

The Pod has since been reissued by Elektra Records after the relative success of such Ween albums as Pure Guava and Chocolate and Cheese (Despite the fact that, at the time of the reissue, The Pod was not currently out of print).
