Quoted from JoshuahJacobs:
Not comparing, we are both podcasters but our formats are so different. Most of my focus has been less on industry and more on those in the community. Frankly, there are plenty of pinball news shows. Further, provocative is always entertaining, like an insult comic or TMZ is entertaining. I don't watch or listen to those things but understand their mass appeal. You don't have to like it but I appreciate you trying it out.
Checked out the rest on my drive home.
Your sound balance and equipment is solid. Your delivery is good. And your Paganini Horror background for the episode is also neato!
But when you get to discussing Kaneda, the reason you posted here, it gets a bit confusing. You state the 3 ways people took the news of his show ending, then stated how he thrived on negativity, and how you feel that's toxic in general in society, and an easy angle to take, but then you go on to dismiss him, say you don't listen to him, and refer to him as a dick and an asshat. So....so much for not being toxic as well?
Just doesn't seem a novel take or a kind one, so why bother crowing about your episode here?
Also. I don't understand you stating you liked the TMNT property long ago, yet have zero interest in even playing the game. I believe that's what you said anyway. Again, I just don't understand that an outright dismissive nature/view is supposed to be....engaging.
When I listen to any podcast or read any article/blog/personal piece, I approach it often with "Who is this person? Should I care about their views, and do their views feel investigated, informed, and well thought out?" In this brief episode, I felt none of that as a listener.
