    Overall I enjoyed it due it being relatable, but I felt there was music placed throughout there as time filler. It would be different if we had video going with it because we have something visual to correlate with the audio. That isn't the case with podcasts. We are dealing with audio ONLY - so all it really serves as is background music to nothing. Then there is 2 mins of straight background music at the end? Why?

    Quoted from JoshuahJacobs:

    Zach pretty much nailed it. Further, the music, which I write, serves as indications to the listener of time changes, moments for reflection, or to accent the mood of the moment. For example, in this episode, the trapesqe beat with me spouting off phrases of frustration, highlight my love for the movie Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, as it's something Steve Martian says in the film. But also, to note the continued frustration I felt over many months, which is why the music goes on for 15 seconds or so longer than any other in the story. Thus, serves as a subtle indication of how difficult the task was getting as the months passed.
    In the end, I understand that it may feel like 'filler' but there is a reason for placing such music in certain spots. Now when it comes to the music at the end, I write a new outro song for every episode and it's just my time to showcase some tunes. Once, I say "this is Josh Jacobs from the Pinball Network signing out" that is the end of the show. You may choose to listen to the music further if you like it or stop the player. Regardless, I want to thank you for listening and giving a new format a try.

    I'm a very visual person (so keep this in mind for others like myself). You paint a good picture mostly throughout the episode with good sound effects and such that help the audience paint a picture in their head about what is going on (reminded me of a good audio book), but the music IMO doesn't tell me that we are going back in time 'X' amount of months. All I hear is some music as if I just hit a 30 second commercial break (*"serves as indications to the listener of time changes, moments for reflection, or to accent the mood of the moment"). Which in the end was not even needed anyways because you specify immediately after the 30 sec. break "okay, let's back it up a bit". Maybe I'm expecting to hear the clichè harp sound effect that indicates a movement in time? lol. The music while you work on the machine is in place because I hear the frustration of you working on the game - which paints an image for me. Please do not take my input as negative. I would hope this would be constructive criticism, and with these notes you can help capture a broader audience with others that need more of a visual stimuli. As a fellow content creator I encourage you to continuously improve!

    What makes cyber bullying so 'easy' is the anonymity behind it. These keyboard commandos can easily type out hate and act all bad ass - because there is no repercussion for their action. A lot of these people live far away from the target and they know it. They also know that there is nothing that can be done back to them. I bet if you guys were neighbors you would be singing a different tune. We content creators vulnerably put ourselves out there to the public in actual form (audio and/or video). We don't hide behind an Avatar or pseudonym. Yes, that is our choice and how we react to the hate is also our choice. Some can handle it - most can't. People just need to type out their responses and make an effort at making them constructive criticism instead of just i.e. "you suck". If you don't like the content why not try giving some feedback to help make the content better? It is so easy to be hateful of someones efforts when you don't know what all is involved in making the content. I would LOVE for the usual haters to make a video or podcast of content for everyone else to judge and comment upon. I doubt it will happen. More often than not - those that talk a lot of shit can't take it. Even when I'm talking poorly about STh I don't like to because I know all the time and effort that goes into making these games.
