00:02:38   Hitler Scott come on that's not yeah is [TS]

00:02:42   that the feedback that my family didn't [TS]

00:02:44   let him watch him too many not enough [TS]

00:02:46   supplements too much Hitler ironically [TS]

00:02:48   Zeppelin's also German but you know [TS]

00:02:51   yeah and that voice saying things in [TS]

00:02:53   German is Glenn fleischmann hi Glenn [TS]

00:02:55   I brought a note from my Twitter [TS]

00:02:57   followers excusing me for previous [TS]

00:02:59   absences and I hope that will be [TS]

00:03:00   reflected in my permanent record [TS]

00:03:02   where have you been clan I where have [TS]

00:03:05   you been Steve when I did right here man [TS]

00:03:08   how many men have you killed Steve you [TS]

00:03:10   can't it's classified glam you know that [TS]

00:03:12   it's true we said too much already [TS]

00:03:14   ok so we don't do now John siracusa is [TS]

00:03:19   here on this on this very podcast and of [TS]

00:03:22   course listeners to his his other [TS]

00:03:24   podcasts and podcasting previously [TS]

00:03:26   didnĂ­t know that he took a lot of time [TS]

00:03:28   to devote to reader feedback listener [TS]

00:03:31   feedback whatever you are audience [TS]

00:03:33   feedback and we don't do that so much of [TS]

00:03:36   the uncomfortable and before we go into [TS]

00:03:38   some of the feedback we have gotten I [TS]

00:03:39   wanted to explain why the big reason is [TS]

00:03:41   because we have such a large panel and [TS]

00:03:42   we rotate different people through [TS]

00:03:44   different episodes and also because we [TS]

00:03:46   sometimes will record stuff in a dance [TS]

00:03:48   and play it back out of sequence it's [TS]

00:03:51   often really difficult to have any [TS]

00:03:53   synchronization of feedback with the [TS]

00:03:57   people who actually were on the episodes [TS]

00:03:59   that you're giving feedback for and my [TS]

00:04:02   example is if you're complaining about [TS]

00:04:04   something that lets say Glenn said on a [TS]

00:04:08   book club episode as if glenwood read a [TS]

00:04:12   book uh and what I'm on about i'm on the [TS]

00:04:15   comic book club with Lisa Schmeisser and [TS]

00:04:18   Moises shoot too jaan we did they don't [TS]

00:04:22   want to hear about Glenn and they have [TS]

00:04:23   nothing to say to explain Glenn so I [TS]

00:04:27   don't know one also would have to [TS]

00:04:29   actually receive feedback [TS]

00:04:31   well we do it we received some feedback [TS]

00:04:32   and I'm sure if we we processed it in [TS]

00:04:35   every episode we would receive more you [TS]

00:04:37   have the other thing is that i like [TS]

00:04:38   having these episodes [TS]

00:04:40   be very standalone so that you can do is [TS]

00:04:42   one of our listeners did recently [TS]

00:04:44   Benjamin peacock who wrote to us on [TS]

00:04:48   Twitter will start the feedback this way [TS]

00:04:50   who said through diligence I've caught [TS]

00:04:52   up on from the beginning of the [TS]

00:04:54   incomparable and now i feel like a piece [TS]

00:04:56   of me is missing see you can go back to [TS]

00:04:58   the beginning and listen to every [TS]

00:04:59   episode study it make it a part of your [TS]

00:05:01   being and engine that that was your [TS]

00:05:04   sanity and it was gone before you [TS]

00:05:06   started and I feel like if the feedbacks [TS]

00:05:07   at the beginning of the episodes then [TS]

00:05:09   then you're maybe you can't just kind of [TS]

00:05:11   drop in and listen to the episode that [TS]

00:05:12   interest you so but we could do it at [TS]

00:05:15   the end and I think about doing that [TS]

00:05:17   sometimes and then we talked for an hour [TS]

00:05:18   and a half and I figure we don't have [TS]

00:05:20   any time for feedback so once we don't [TS]

00:05:22   care what Scott doesn't kidnap me only [TS]

00:05:26   the not caring yes God doesn't dozens it [TS]

00:05:29   isn't interested in what other people [TS]

00:05:30   have to say that's on your your your [TS]

00:05:32   chart here Scott doesn't bother me [TS]

00:05:34   yeah alright so let me let me go through [TS]

00:05:38   some of the twitter feed back we do get [TS]

00:05:40   feedback on Twitter and this of course [TS]

00:05:44   the incomparable is our twitter account [TS]

00:05:46   and here are some of the comments we had [TS]

00:08:56   I could aab brian sullivan wrote in on [TS]

00:09:00   twitter that he was loving the dnd [TS]

00:09:02   episodes and asked if there were any [TS]

00:09:04   more planned we got we got some feedback [TS]

00:09:07   there was one guy who wrote him I [TS]

00:09:08   couldn't find the tweet he basically [TS]

00:09:09   said that that that that he hated the [TS]

00:09:12   dnd episodes and they were and he was [TS]

00:09:14   very much like why are you wasting my [TS]

00:09:16   time with this and I i was a long lines [TS]

00:09:18   of three more hours of D&D really yeah [TS]

00:09:21   it did you have to and my response was [TS]

00:09:23   this one my standard response we did you [TS]

00:09:25   get a full refund for what you paid for [TS]

00:09:27   the podcast was traveling and and and [TS]

00:09:29   you know and and to was a week where [TS]

00:09:32   there was literally not going to be an [TS]

00:09:33   episode so well and three were really [TS]

00:09:36   sorry about the people who strap you [TS]

00:09:37   down and made you listen to three hours [TS]

00:09:39   until i get me haul and should call the [TS]

00:09:41   police on those people the eyelid [TS]

00:09:43   toothpicks are really painful they are [TS]

00:09:45   part of the service and style are we [TS]

00:09:48   going to do more D&D yes because I'm [TS]

00:09:52   some way I think it's a lot of fun and I [TS]

00:09:54   think I don't speak for everyone but i'm [TS]

00:09:55   going to everybody seems everybody like [TS]

00:09:58   this and help and I we've got a [TS]

00:10:02   surprising amount of people who actually [TS]

00:10:04   enjoy listening last watching the DFCS [TS]

00:10:07   what's surprising money more than Jason [TS]

00:10:10   I have something I have some feedback [TS]

00:10:12   what is wrong with these people [TS]

00:10:14   I'm amazed that people love the dnd [TS]

00:10:16   episodes too but they seem to and I'm [TS]

00:10:18   glad which is why we've always sort of [TS]

00:10:20   thought of those extras because it was [TS]

00:10:22   an experiment to see what if we played [TS]

00:10:24   D&D together and the edited podcast [TS]

00:10:28   episodes i think you're a little bit [TS]

00:10:29   better we do some compression they're [TS]

00:10:30   still really long but I pulled like half [TS]

00:10:32   an hour of stuff out of the last one and [TS]

00:10:35   it was a much you know it was a much [TS]

00:10:37   tighter kind of episode you it wasn't [TS]

00:10:39   there wasn't so much of that two minutes [TS]

00:10:41   of somebody figuring out which dice to [TS]

00:10:43   roll as [TS]

00:10:44   on the live stream but the unedited was [TS]

00:10:47   was was pitched as a bonus episode [TS]

00:10:49   anyway yeah it was the second that weeks [TS]

00:10:51   they're all they're all kind of bonus [TS]

00:10:52   episodes anyway but we will do more [TS]

00:10:54   right there's there's more to that [TS]

00:10:55   adventure and then there's we haven't [TS]

00:10:57   finished the adventure and you know if [TS]

00:10:59   if the the rest of the panelists want to [TS]

00:11:01   continue playing I'm happy to continue [TS]

00:11:03   DME but I hope we can have a text [TS]

00:11:06   episode to induce orc you know because i [TS]

00:11:08   think that would be good like the like a [TS]

00:11:10   book on tape [TS]

00:11:11   detective enter your amazing twisty [TS]

00:11:14   podcast all like all right let's go to [TS]

00:11:16   Anna and idea that be a great episode [TS]

00:11:21   and gee gee I I'm gonna be somebody [TS]

00:11:28   please buy the mouth [TS]

00:11:30   Yoho no that's a different adventure [TS]

00:11:33   xyzzy pick up pick up [TS]

00:11:37   yeah you have no t I Judson done says i [TS]

00:11:43   love your book podcast but you should [TS]

00:11:45   have fewer spoilers maybe none that [TS]

00:11:49   makes difficult to talk about them then [TS]

00:11:51   I could be on the book podcast without [TS]

00:11:52   having read the book [TS]

00:11:53   yeah we totally just talking about [TS]

00:11:55   invading it's an episode where we try to [TS]

00:11:57   convince john siracusa to read a book [TS]

00:11:58   without without spoiling it for me take [TS]

00:12:02   a look John anything that happens in the [TS]

00:12:03   book in 2004 we were talking on the [TS]

00:12:05   comic book club was a comic book club [TS]

00:12:08   that Merlin Merlin Mann was on the first [TS]

00:12:11   episode he was on anyway and we know [TS]

00:12:13   yeah i was the the house of them and I [TS]

00:12:14   got to the the ending we I mean we put [TS]

00:12:17   the spoiler warning about two minutes in [TS]

00:12:19   and he was a gas was like why you guys [TS]

00:12:20   jumped the spoilers fast here and I I [TS]

00:12:22   think that's always a question for us is [TS]

00:12:24   when do you [TS]

00:12:25   this is this the stuff we cover is [TS]

00:12:27   generally not you know we're not trying [TS]

00:12:32   to avoid details we want to talk about [TS]

00:12:35   the details that's kind of a level at [TS]

00:12:37   which we dig into stuff so it's really [TS]

00:12:38   hard to figure out window below the [TS]

00:12:41   spoiler horn and then honestly I always [TS]

00:12:42   feel like so what are you gonna do [TS]

00:12:43   you're gonna listen to 10 minutes of a [TS]

00:12:44   podcast event stop and come back weeks [TS]

00:12:47   later it is it's not a podcast very like [TS]

00:12:49   I need people to recommend me good [TS]

00:12:51   things that I should check out that's [TS]

00:12:52   this is for people who already seen [TS]

00:12:55   these things because they usually fairly [TS]

00:12:57   popular whatever and want to hear people [TS]

00:12:58   talk about them because they read them [TS]

00:13:00   or watch them or whatever it's not like [TS]

00:13:02   give me a list of things to read because [TS]

00:13:04   yeah but everything we talked about we [TS]

00:13:06   go we tell you everything about it's for [TS]

00:13:08   its for people who have already seen it [TS]

00:13:10   yeah i did I there was a good piece of [TS]

00:13:11   feedback that said at least let us know [TS]

00:13:13   if the thing you let you are talking [TS]

00:13:15   about is something you liked or not so [TS]

00:13:17   that we know whether we should bother to [TS]

00:13:19   like not listen and watch it or read [TS]

00:13:22   that we have to blow the spoiler horn [TS]

00:13:23   for the podcast itself and i think you [TS]

00:13:25   can pick up my beauty before the before [TS]

00:13:27   the spoils everything we're going to [TS]

00:13:29   tell you whether we liked the book or [TS]

00:13:30   not okay it's basically just entirely [TS]

00:13:32   spoiler or its this is the hypnotoad [TS]

00:13:34   episode of the incomparable two hundred [TS]

00:13:36   percent spoiler warning we have a very [TS]

00:13:38   some very nice feedback actually [TS]

00:13:39   happening live in our chat room which is [TS]

00:13:41   saying first off a request to blow the [TS]

00:13:44   spoiler horn during this section which i [TS]

00:13:46   think is gonna obviously happen [TS]

00:13:51   and then a lot of anti spoiler not not [TS]

00:13:55   anti spoilers anti the concept of being [TS]

00:13:58   afraid of spoilers and that you should [TS]

00:14:00   just get over it and and and cara cara [TS]

00:14:04   Healy says we have to fight the [TS]

00:14:05   gangrenous hold that no spoilers has on [TS]

00:14:07   our culture I I kind of money you know [TS]

00:14:09   you should be afraid of spoilers you [TS]

00:14:11   should have you should you should not be [TS]

00:14:13   listening to a podcast about a movie if [TS]

00:14:15   you haven't seen the movie with we could [TS]

00:14:17   do a compromise we could only review [TS]

00:14:19   things that are so bland and [TS]

00:14:20   uninteresting there's nothing to spoil [TS]

00:14:22   by spoiling them that would clearly work [TS]

00:14:25   and so let me marry is definitely some [TS]

00:14:27   properties that you can talk a lot about [TS]

00:14:29   without spoiling major parts of it but [TS]

00:14:32   the podcast be 15 minutes long [TS]

00:14:34   yeah and you what you want to get into [TS]

00:14:36   the nitty-gritty details like what did [TS]

00:14:38   you not like about it well when the guy [TS]

00:14:40   did thing and you like now we have to [TS]

00:14:42   actually say what he did and why we [TS]

00:14:44   didn't like it you have must my name yes [TS]

00:14:47   I guess like if it's if it's a horror [TS]

00:14:49   movie I understand not wanting or some [TS]

00:14:51   ridiculous you know crying game like [TS]

00:14:53   element you know or any M night [TS]

00:14:55   Shyamalan llama Shallon and shim sham [TS]

00:15:06   walk through one of the sets one's [TS]

00:15:07   probably pages you have told that story [TS]

00:15:09   but how much work that we review that we [TS]

00:15:11   like it is it actually is the spoiler [TS]

00:15:14   horn part actually to spoil the [TS]

00:15:16   enjoyment of it does and the work how [TS]

00:15:18   does it stand up because you know this [TS]

00:15:19   boiler horn always ruins my enjoyment [TS]

00:15:21   thanks [TS]

00:15:25   you know there was that was that link [TS]

00:15:27   there was going around the edge of like [TS]

00:15:28   some studies showing that like well we [TS]

00:15:30   did this scientific study and people [TS]

00:15:32   knowing what was going to happen didn't [TS]

00:15:33   it didn't ruin their enjoyment and in [TS]

00:15:35   fact enhanced it slightly but i have [TS]

00:15:37   i've quibbles with that study and it you [TS]

00:15:39   know it's not because it's obviously [TS]

00:15:41   crap no one under the conditions they [TS]

00:15:44   tested its true but their conditions of [TS]

00:15:46   that we're talking about it like you [TS]

00:15:48   know popular movies or books or whatever [TS]

00:15:50   is different than the the I don't know [TS]

00:15:52   yeah also if you rely on people to [TS]

00:15:55   report how they feel about something [TS]

00:15:56   after the fact that itself is strange [TS]

00:15:58   right all i know is i feel i feel worse [TS]

00:16:01   when I know I was going to turn I have [TS]

00:16:02   time if I feel much better when I'm [TS]

00:16:04   pleasantly surprised and no one like him [TS]

00:16:06   like Game of Thrones I didn't know what [TS]

00:16:08   was going to happen at the end of this [TS]

00:16:09   current season and i'm glad you and I [TS]

00:16:11   feel like I enjoyed it more yeah but [TS]

00:16:13   John you would you would come if you [TS]

00:16:15   listen to if you're specifically seeking [TS]

00:16:16   out a show about a game of thrones and [TS]

00:16:19   it was about the current season you can [TS]

00:16:20   watch it you would not listen episode [TS]

00:16:22   right now I just because this episode is [TS]

00:16:24   incomparable that I still haven't [TS]

00:16:25   listened to because I say oh I might [TS]

00:16:27   want to i might want to check that out [TS]

00:16:28   so I don't saving them for after i read [TS]

00:16:31   it or what I think I think it is a [TS]

00:16:32   common incumbent upon the person who [TS]

00:16:34   wants to avoid the spoilers to actively [TS]

00:16:36   avoid them I'm not going to [TS]

00:16:38   yes no sense whether that's why the [TS]

00:16:40   spoiler horn he exists is that final [TS]

00:16:43   it's a free license agreement it's the [TS]

00:16:46   way okay we're gonna ruin things now so [TS]

00:16:48   you really are you sure you really [TS]

00:16:49   really sure that makes sense because [TS]

00:16:51   then everybody's click through it [TS]

00:16:52   without actually reading it exactly that [TS]

00:16:54   explains why they keep gates well [TS]

00:21:28   is self-loathing [TS]

00:21:29   yeah I guess so like I said we'll have [TS]

00:21:31   to do another game show episode 2 that's [TS]

00:21:32   another thing that people have asked for [TS]

00:21:34   that we should do [TS]

00:21:35   it's just a lot of work that's what my [TS]

00:21:37   part [TS]

00:21:39   dan dan if you want to invent a game [TS]

00:21:41   show episode that would how I i wanted [TS]

00:21:43   to do 14 for several years i'm just i'm [TS]

00:21:45   lazy [TS]

00:21:46   yeah see that's my problem we gotta find [TS]

00:21:48   some people in here who have initiative [TS]

00:21:50   and energy so before we go on I I i [TS]

00:21:54   actually did receive a few notes about [TS]

00:21:56   people who are very excited that we had [TS]

00:21:57   sponsors on the podcast because because [TS]

00:22:01   they they want to support our podcast [TS]

00:22:04   and they had no sponsors to support and [TS]

00:22:06   now they do have a few and segue into a [TS]

00:22:09   span and that's and that's why based on [TS]

00:22:12   your feedback i'd like to tell you again [TS]

00:22:14   about how great 23andme this and you [TS]

00:22:18   guys can help you help me out here 23 [TS]

00:22:19   me.com / incomparable is where you go [TS]

00:22:22   $99 DNA test kit you can find out if [TS]

00:22:25   you're related to Glenn now where's the [TS]

00:22:28   trees chances are everyone is related to [TS]

00:22:30   Glenn I i found actually a ton of [TS]

00:22:33   relations and people need to check out [TS]

00:22:34   ahead and login for a while they've [TS]

00:22:35   updated some things and they're like 50 [TS]

00:22:38   people find need to get back to and see [TS]

00:22:40   maybe second or third cousin silly fun [TS]

00:22:42   that's how we found out Glen was really [TS]

00:22:44   a dude right yeah guys are mad I spoiler [TS]

00:22:47   that science [TS]

00:22:50   yeah I found mine when I found a think [TS]

00:22:53   there's a second and third cousin that [TS]

00:22:55   they haven't responded to me yet but and [TS]

00:22:56   i found several third or fourth cousins [TS]

00:22:59   and lots of interesting information so [TS]

00:23:01   one of the things you can do is you can [TS]

00:23:02   see there's a relative finder that will [TS]

00:23:05   tell you you know these various people [TS]

00:23:06   who are your who your cousin's just [TS]

00:23:09   based entirely on a DNA match but then [TS]

00:23:10   there are places to put in like family [TS]

00:23:12   names and you can do a match search for [TS]

00:23:14   names that are in your family among your [TS]

00:23:16   relatives and then and then sort of [TS]

00:23:17   figure out how you're related [TS]

00:23:19   plus there are medical reports you can [TS]

00:23:22   get information about your what part of [TS]

00:23:25   the world your ancestry is from so for [TS]

00:23:27   me it's all it's all Europe for my for [TS]

00:23:30   my wife it's a half sort of like Western [TS]

00:23:33   European and half Ashkenazi which is [TS]

00:23:35   appropriate because your mother is [TS]

00:23:37   Jewish in her father's family is from [TS]

00:23:39   France so it makes perfect sense there's [TS]

00:23:43   there's medical stuff they do a lot of [TS]

00:23:44   surveys as I've railed about on this on [TS]

00:23:48   this podcast many times cilantro the [TS]

00:23:51   menace that infests all mexican food [TS]

00:23:54   cilantro is great but he doesn't the [TS]

00:23:56   worst and and you know why it's because [TS]

00:23:58   in my jeans make me hate cilantro it's [TS]

00:24:01   not it's not me Steve and Jason just how [TS]

00:24:04   much genetic material you have to [TS]

00:24:06   produce for this 23andme you know i'm [TS]

00:24:10   small tube that you have to spit in its [TS]

00:24:13   it's not a single lookie i would say [TS]

00:24:15   it's sort of like to Lucas worth is it a [TS]

00:24:18   series of two services just was just a [TS]

00:24:21   single tube and you spit in the tube and [TS]

00:24:23   then you close it up and mail it back to [TS]

00:24:25   23 meat comes in your kit for ninety [TS]

00:24:27   nine dollars you get that you get the to [TS]

00:24:29   be spit in it and then there's a little [TS]

00:24:31   mailer and you send it back to them and [TS]

00:24:33   a couple-week don't don't spit in the [TS]

00:24:35   mailer don't spit in the mail or where [TS]

00:24:37   you can examine what it was intended to [TS]

00:24:39   netflix and don't set it to the attacks [TS]

00:24:49   things about my dad's right [TS]

00:24:50   imagine that here's the thing i [TS]

00:24:53   discovered which is I did this a few [TS]

00:24:54   years ago when they had a special before [TS]

00:24:55   it was nine dollars and paid somewhat [TS]

00:24:58   more and it turns out they can do more [TS]

00:24:59   tests now and I could send another 24 [TS]

00:25:02   and I [TS]

00:25:02   sucks they keep all my current [TS]

00:25:04   information and i'll update it with [TS]

00:25:05   anything do they find out which is best [TS]

00:25:07   of all we could just clone Glenn now [TS]

00:25:08   that's right all my information [TS]

00:25:10   well everything I say and do is online [TS]

00:25:12   already so you can just load that into a [TS]

00:25:13   simple electronic brain and we're also i [TS]

00:25:18   be that the to glens wouldn't actually [TS]

00:25:20   know each other [TS]

00:25:21   ironically antique limb and letting you [TS]

00:25:24   know [TS]

00:25:24   also you can find out if you're related [TS]

00:25:25   to nobody which is really crazy that's [TS]

00:25:27   that's if you may be an alien or or a [TS]

00:25:31   mutant of some sort [TS]

00:25:53   various medical predispositions and it's [TS]

00:25:56   a lot of fun and used to cost hundreds [TS]

00:25:58   of dollars and now it's ninety-nine [TS]

00:26:00   dollars and I think there are actually [TS]

00:26:02   discounts if you if you buy more than [TS]

00:28:59   us [TS]

00:29:00   Nick Richter Rodian with some detailed [TS]

00:29:03   additional thoughts he had about how [TS]

00:29:07   empty the the USS vengeance is in star [TS]

00:29:10   trek into darkness [TS]

00:29:11   it's really i know it's really empty and [TS]

00:29:15   then he also has a theory about now [TS]

00:29:17   empty couldn't about check of none more [TS]

00:29:20   empty [TS]

00:29:20   hello about how check of being given a [TS]

00:29:23   red shirt and put [TS]

00:29:24   down engineering might be a nod to the [TS]

00:29:26   fact that Khan in Star Trek to says [TS]

00:29:28   recognizes check out even though check [TS]

00:29:30   out wasn't on the ship and the theory [TS]

00:29:31   was that he was down in engineering when [TS]

00:29:34   he was really just not on the show yet [TS]

00:29:35   and strangely enough that's the second [TS]

00:29:37   craziest theory of her this week the [TS]

00:29:38   first one being that one about all the [TS]

00:29:40   pixar movies are created are related [TS]

00:29:41   that was crazy Glo second i'll close [TS]

00:29:44   second yeah so thanks to have way too [TS]

00:30:05   lot of you about about techie sorts of [TS]

00:30:08   things but listen to the geeky things is [TS]

00:30:10   the highlight of my podcast listening [TS]

00:30:11   week and this gave me an idea for an [TS]

00:30:12   episode i wrote down on it in a note pad [TS]

00:30:15   oxide wrote down cocktail party episode [TS]

00:30:17   and i'm not sure what the real guns are [TS]

00:30:19   we all getting drunk i was thinking like [TS]

00:30:21   it i would i would mandate that we all [TS]

00:30:23   like bring food and and and drinks and [TS]

00:30:26   hors I don't even a little coming in [TS]

00:30:27   microphones just goes great together [TS]

00:30:29   with the distributed pot lockers and [TS]

00:30:31   then I'll aii delay in some like [TS]

00:30:33   background ways to make it sound like we [TS]

00:30:35   were all the cocktail party but like i [TS]

00:30:36   said it's a working idea people feast [TS]

00:30:39   yeah I see what else what else I have [TS]

00:30:43   mark reichert road in a little while ago [TS]

00:30:46   about actually parking back forty eight [TS]

00:30:49   episodes to Princess Indiana Jones and [TS]

00:30:52   he basically was agreeing with what [TS]

00:30:55   serenity said about uh about a Cora and [TS]

00:31:01   avatar the last airbender and demanding [TS]

00:31:04   that we do an episode about avatar the [TS]

00:31:06   last airbender which is not the M night [TS]

00:31:08   Shyamalan movie which was terrible who [TS]

00:31:09   now I would be up for an avatar episode [TS]

00:31:12   that would be a lot of fun i have slowly [TS]

00:31:14   gotten people around me I made and watch [TS]

00:31:17   it I made lots of people watching I've [TS]

00:31:18   seen is quite good actually yeah people [TS]

00:31:21   look at it on its face and say [TS]

00:31:22   nickelodeon cartoon no I don't want to [TS]

00:31:25   watch that that's dumb and then you get [TS]

00:31:28   strangely hooked X probably get my kids [TS]

00:31:51   that listeners dead now you have and [TS]

00:31:54   what is that the Iron Man Thing has [TS]

00:31:56   anyone seen the new like cg-animated [TS]

00:32:12   there all of a sudden yeah i like the [TS]

00:32:13   spectacular but no ultimate spider-man [TS]

00:32:15   it's their fault inspiron it's alright [TS]

00:32:17   it's a little cartoony for my taxes but [TS]

00:32:19   I didn't want to hear my question still [TS]

00:32:21   stands still burns does it haha i [TS]

00:32:25   haven't listened to that episode because [TS]

00:32:26   i haven't seen iron man 3 it's okay to [TS]

00:32:28   have spoiled you either superhero draft [TS]

00:32:30   is what I just assume Steve met because [TS]

00:32:32   he got passed over for for being iron [TS]

00:32:34   man Robert Downey jr. got that part of [TS]

00:32:37   that is I didn't lie detection is in the [TS]

00:32:39   superhero draft i was there Jason come [TS]

00:32:41   on i wasn't the let's see i thought this [TS]

00:32:46   little Kyle i.d.s I think or dese des [TS]

00:32:50   let's say says totally agree with you [TS]

00:32:52   about origin stories they're dull and [TS]

00:32:54   mostly unnecessary and for some reason [TS]

00:32:56   we're forced to sit through them they're [TS]

00:32:58   also weirdly specific to the superhero [TS]

00:32:59   genre and I hard they don't feel the [TS]

00:33:01   need to start the story with John [TS]

00:33:02   between deciding to become a cop at age [TS]

00:33:04   40 diehard was his origin story he was a [TS]

00:33:07   plain old guy and how did he become a [TS]

00:33:10   hero [TS]

00:33:10   I just like the idea of four-year-old [TS]

00:33:12   son but claimed flashbacks that's pretty [TS]

00:33:14   funny [TS]

00:33:14   yippie kai a mom yeah I think lead a I [TS]

00:33:19   think well that will change his mind [TS]

00:33:21   when we do the incomparable origin story [TS]

00:33:24   welcome to the party to me birthday [TS]

00:33:29   come out to the coast will have you left [TS]

00:33:31   here so runcorn wrote in to say in [TS]

00:33:35   defense of Man of Steel didn't saw its [TS]

00:33:38   terraforming device cause even more [TS]

00:33:39   destruction than the cat whatever I why [TS]

00:33:42   we read these [TS]

00:33:43   take your feedback but actually this is [TS]

00:33:47   the part of runs letter that i really [TS]

00:33:48   love which is how do you guys find the [TS]

00:33:51   time to watch and read all this stuff [TS]

00:33:52   you might want to do a podcast on time [TS]

00:33:55   management [TS]

00:33:57   I think it's not watching and reading is [TS]

00:33:59   the podcasting with a comb and the [TS]

00:34:01   podcasting takes a lot of time it's my [TS]

00:34:04   third podcast today [TS]

00:34:05   wow i knows it's pretty hardcore lot of [TS]

00:34:09   podcasts humblebrag send help please [TS]

00:34:14   I've been strapped to this microphone [TS]

00:34:15   for six hours that is it that is a [TS]

00:34:17   challenge that when some of the [TS]

00:34:18   suggestions that I've gotten four [TS]

00:34:20   episodes are really great and I think to [TS]

00:34:22   myself you know like the people who are [TS]

00:34:24   like you shouldn't do it at the wheel of [TS]

00:34:25   time we love times like wow I haven't [TS]

00:34:28   read any of those and so if I were to [TS]

00:34:32   host an episode like that it would be [TS]

00:34:34   several years and huge amounts of time [TS]

00:34:37   before I would feel qualified which is [TS]

00:34:39   why I I won't do that someone else could [TS]

00:34:43   one of one of my compatriots here if [TS]

00:34:46   they wanted to do an episode about it [TS]

00:34:47   but that it's a challenge for some of [TS]

00:34:48   this stuff where people say even for the [TS]

00:34:50   classic movies you know you can't you [TS]

00:34:53   can't just do it off the top of your [TS]

00:34:55   head you really need to go back and [TS]

00:34:56   watch it it can be a challenge to find [TS]

00:34:59   topics and I mean I think it's great [TS]

00:35:01   that we've been doing this for three [TS]

00:35:02   years now and and haven't completely run [TS]

00:35:27   incomparable up so it happened the week [TS]

00:38:17   to complain about your podcast in too [TS]

00:38:19   big for mercy [TS]

00:38:20   I have been an unwilling listening for [TS]

00:38:22   several years now i have chosen to [TS]

00:38:24   suffer largely in silence with the [TS]

00:38:26   exception of the occasional [TS]

00:38:27   passive-aggressive tweet of complaint [TS]

00:38:28   but i confess i can stand it no longer [TS]

00:38:31   you and your minions have made my life a [TS]

00:38:34   living hell [TS]

00:38:35   each week a new episode of the [TS]

00:38:36   incomparable forces its way into my [TS]

00:38:38   itunes folder and from there onto my [TS]

00:38:40   phone then with the inevitability of [TS]

00:38:43   death but a suddenness that somehow [TS]

00:38:45   always manages to shock i hear the black [TS]

00:38:48   helicopters overhead this is losing me [TS]

00:38:50   here [TS]

00:38:51   the men and the flak jackets and tinted [TS]

00:38:52   full-face helmets to send on the ropes [TS]

00:38:54   sees me and clamp the headphones on [TS]

00:38:57   I do not allow tar or how they find me [TS]

00:38:59   they never speak so I'm pretty sure one [TS]

00:39:01   of them is McNulty take that me know [TS]

00:39:06   they push the play button another our [TS]

00:39:07   suffering begins it was not always like [TS]

00:39:10   this once i listened voluntarily hook [TS]

00:39:12   but what I think everyone agrees is your [TS]

00:39:14   masterpiece the famous episode 22 [TS]

00:39:16   Stephen Fry does not appear [TS]

00:39:18   sadly the production quality and [TS]

00:39:20   professionalism displayed in that [TS]

00:39:22   episode did not appear again by the time [TS]

00:39:26   I realized this your iron fist descended [TS]

00:39:28   and I was trapped by now dread every [TS]

00:39:29   aspect of the show from the primal whale [TS]

00:39:32   the spoiler horn [TS]

00:39:37   the unhelpfully reasonable Lisa [TS]

00:39:39   Schmeisser from the irritatingly young [TS]

00:39:41   serenity Caldwell to the host himself [TS]

00:39:43   whose quote genial Californian stick [TS]

00:39:46   barely concealed the power crazed [TS]

00:39:48   lunatic within well that's the shit i [TS]

00:39:51   will not even mention the terrifying [TS]

00:39:53   monologues blend fleischmann whom I knew [TS]

00:39:55   in college in incidentally what its [TS]

00:39:59   lending he was going either he's putting [TS]

00:40:00   or the wholly inappropriate Steve let's [TS]

00:40:03   that's what's on my business cards worst [TS]

00:40:05   in saddest of all are the two John [TS]

00:40:06   Syracuse's the first familiar to [TS]

00:40:08   everyone is impressively expert across a [TS]

00:40:11   range of domains the second emerges [TS]

00:40:13   presumably only when the medication is [TS]

00:40:15   worn off [TS]

00:40:15   he sounds the same but he goes by a [TS]

00:40:17   different name and has a different set [TS]

00:40:18   of views entirely it was a sad [TS]

00:40:22   indictment of our societies lack of care [TS]

00:40:23   for its most vulnerable members that [TS]

00:40:25   John siracusa / dan morgan is allowed to [TS]

00:40:28   wander in the community at well like [TS]

00:40:29   some kind of new england natalie portman [TS]

00:40:43   nightmare and stop forcing me to listen [TS]

00:40:45   it's time you let Stephen Hawking [TS]

00:40:47   contribute more than just the opening [TS]

00:40:48   tag line [TS]

00:52:42   panelists you guys who listen know all [TS]

00:52:44   of this [TS]

00:52:45   topics special format episodes he says [TS]

00:52:48   thankfully every once in a while the [TS]

00:52:49   comfortable likes to break away from the [TS]

00:52:51   regular monotony and do something [TS]

00:52:53   different like a film festival or a [TS]

00:52:55   draft and he's got us dead to rights [TS]

00:52:58   that's exactly what we try to do is mix [TS]

00:53:00   it up [TS]

00:53:01   ok here we go here the cons though [TS]

00:53:02   here's our careers are from the [TS]

00:53:06   gentleman doesn't he's not a fan of the [TS]

00:53:08   dnd episode so I rejected so i think i [TS]

00:53:11   think there's some good stuff and we're [TS]

00:53:12   gonna reject it anyway Scott I so [TS]

00:53:14   technical timeliness which has got three [TS]

00:53:17   hash marks the beginning because it's a [TS]

00:53:18   subhead in markdown that's not [TS]

00:53:20   recognized by itunes timeliness for me [TS]

00:53:22   tends to work against the uncomfortable [TS]

00:53:24   not that they don't attempt to to be [TS]

00:53:25   your succeeded being timely irrelevant [TS]

00:53:27   but when they do the quality suffers a [TS]

00:53:29   little bit i'm referring primarily the [TS]

00:53:30   effort episode sending around say a [TS]

00:53:32   recent movie release because they're [TS]

00:53:35   trying to record release an episode [TS]

00:53:36   while the film is still relevant [TS]

00:53:37   typically means the panelists have seen [TS]

00:53:38   the film once or twice and have only had [TS]

00:53:40   about a week or two to ruminate on it [TS]

00:53:42   compared that to their two part of scene [TS]

00:53:44   by scene breakdown of each original star [TS]

00:53:46   wars film so I think this is a good [TS]

00:53:49   criticism and I've had that same thing [TS]

00:53:50   we go back and forth about whether to be [TS]

00:53:54   timely or not a lot of the notes we get [TS]

00:53:57   on social media like about a hot new [TS]

00:53:59   release and they say oh when are you [TS]

00:54:01   gonna do this when you're gonna talk [TS]

00:54:02   about man of steel or star trek or iron [TS]

00:54:04   man or whatever and it it generally [TS]

00:54:07   isn't our bag to do that and so this [TS]

00:54:08   summer i know we tried it with three of [TS]

00:54:11   these movies and i'm still not sure if [TS]

00:54:12   it's really a set our best to do the to [TS]

00:54:15   do those let me let me let me talk about [TS]

00:54:16   a a point there which is to say not [TS]

00:54:18   every movie has as much to talk about [TS]

00:54:20   his star wars does yeah I mean oh yeah [TS]

00:54:23   and he said that says that it's not a [TS]

00:54:24   really good bar right there but I mean I [TS]

00:54:27   i think that the difference between [TS]

00:54:28   going through something that's been out [TS]

00:54:30   for a while even if it's just come out [TS]

00:54:32   on video and we've had a little time to [TS]

00:54:33   digest it versus something that we [TS]

00:54:36   literally you know saw once a couple of [TS]

00:54:38   days before I think that there's some [TS]

00:54:41   validity in there is certainly a very [TS]

00:54:42   different kind of feeling we're talking [TS]

00:54:43   about a new release then we're talking [TS]

00:54:45   about the classic well sure but I i [TS]

00:54:47   think those are two separate types of [TS]

00:54:48   episodes and more to the point I like [TS]

00:54:50   doing a couple days after I've seen it [TS]

00:54:52   because then [TS]

00:54:52   i still remember what happened in that [TS]

00:54:53   movie whereas i might not watch that [TS]

00:54:56   movie again like six months Michael by [TS]

00:54:58   music and movie was alright yeah i think [TS]

00:55:00   the most movies doll with time it's good [TS]

00:55:02   it's good to record our first [TS]

00:55:03   impressions to like don't you want don't [TS]

00:55:05   the maid imagine several years in the [TS]

00:55:07   future like it would say well done with [TS]

00:55:09   the is our first impressions this movie [TS]

00:55:11   and maybe maybe they change maybe the [TS]

00:55:12   movie we like now we think sucked or [TS]

00:55:14   maybe a movie that we weren't that into [TS]

00:55:16   or thought was okay now has come out to [TS]

00:55:18   be a classic enemy if imagine if we [TS]

00:55:20   could have recorded our initial [TS]

00:55:22   reactions to for example Star Wars like [TS]

00:55:24   just coming out of the movie or whatever [TS]

00:55:25   when we were you know 10 years old or I [TS]

00:55:27   don't know was awesome [TS]

00:55:29   yes I think you should someone ladies [TS]

00:55:32   really called well we'll talk about Star [TS]

00:55:33   Wars yeah i mean i think that's I think [TS]

00:55:37   it's good to get that down because it [TS]

00:55:39   could be interesting to look back on [TS]

00:55:41   that but that's probably never gonna [TS]

00:55:43   stop talking in fairness you're not [TS]

00:55:44   probably gonna go back to that same [TS]

00:55:47   movie or show or whatever it is not [TS]

00:55:50   maybe even if it's not us it's like [TS]

00:55:51   other people who buy dramamine things [TS]

00:55:53   I'm know how long things are going to [TS]

00:55:55   live on the Internet me would you like [TS]

00:55:56   to hear what people thought of this [TS]

00:55:57   movie when it was released well here's [TS]

00:55:59   some people talking about [TS]

00:56:01   yeah this is not really a happy medium [TS]

00:56:03   there i mean you can do a movie that's [TS]

00:56:05   fresh [TS]

00:56:06   but then just by necessity you're not [TS]

00:56:08   going to have the kind of the kind of [TS]

00:56:10   thoughts on it that you get when you sit [TS]

00:56:12   and ruminate for several months or you [TS]

00:56:14   can do an old movie where you've had [TS]

00:56:16   months or years to think about it and [TS]

00:56:18   and there you're gonna get you know kind [TS]

00:56:19   of some more in-depth insights that [TS]

00:56:21   you've had some more time to spend on we [TS]

00:56:23   already do both of those things that you [TS]

00:56:24   might know [TS]

00:56:25   yeah great there's not really in the [TS]

00:56:26   middle you're gonna get people go and [TS]

00:56:27   why that why are you talking about say [TS]

00:56:29   permit for me theaters for instance [TS]

00:56:31   which was like eight months ago or [TS]

00:56:33   whatever that was out [TS]

00:56:34   well sometimes you see something and you [TS]

00:56:35   come out of a gun oh man i need to have [TS]

00:56:38   things to say about this movie sometime [TS]

00:56:40   to come out of it you don't have things [TS]

00:56:41   to say maybe those episodes aren't that [TS]

00:56:42   great but prometheus is an example where [TS]

00:56:44   I think a lot of people came out of it [TS]

00:56:47   just really didn't like it really want [TS]

00:56:48   to complain about it maybe that feeling [TS]

00:56:50   sticks with you I mean look at phantom [TS]

00:56:52   menace that you know what are our anger [TS]

00:56:55   about that movie stuck with us long [TS]

00:56:56   enough to yeah we can do an episode [TS]

00:56:58   about eight years later and it's it's [TS]

00:57:00   still like you know still fresh [TS]

00:57:02   right now I'm just not sure there's any [TS]

00:57:04   way to do a current fellow [TS]

00:57:05   without by just being somewhat shallow [TS]

00:57:09   on it you're gonna get something that's [TS]

00:57:10   old and have an in-depth discussion or [TS]

00:57:12   you're going to get something that's new [TS]

00:57:13   and and you're gonna get the first [TS]

00:57:16   thoughts of somebody who watched a [TS]

00:57:18   couple days ago my reactions are just [TS]

00:57:20   you know their best when freshest you [TS]

00:57:22   know before the expiration date [TS]

00:57:24   so that's what i like to do it [TS]

00:57:25   immediately after watching a movie they [TS]

00:57:27   turn brown like avocado and bananas soak [TS]

00:57:30   yourself in some lemon juice is so gonna [TS]

00:57:33   use my skin looking young [TS]

00:57:35   I'm just saying like I agree with i [TS]

00:57:36   agree with the criticism I just I'm not [TS]

00:57:38   sure there's really a solution to it the [TS]

00:57:40   solution would be first I disagree with [TS]

00:57:42   these critical solution would be to not [TS]

00:57:44   do it [TS]

00:57:44   the solution would be the first to say [TS]

00:57:46   well you know which I said sort of last [TS]

00:57:48   summer when the blockbusters are coming [TS]

00:57:49   out i said that it's not really our bag [TS]

00:57:51   to to rush [TS]

00:57:53   also it's hard for me sometimes to get [TS]

00:57:55   out and see me because you know kids uh [TS]

00:57:57   it's it you know we could say that we [TS]

00:58:01   can say well that's not what we do we [TS]

00:58:02   don't you know the biggest star wars [TS]

00:58:04   episode 7 like we're gonna we're gonna [TS]

00:58:06   do an episode not after we see it yeah [TS]

00:58:08   it's like it's inevitable and only [TS]

00:58:10   because we're not all want to talk about [TS]

00:58:11   it well I really wanted to talk about [TS]

00:58:12   Star Trek I mean I was gonna say yeah I [TS]

00:58:15   think we have to do starting to think [TS]

00:58:16   that it's fine to keep mixed up i mean [TS]

00:58:18   we're not trying to be the every week we [TS]

00:58:20   write review a move-in-ready movie and [TS]

00:58:22   right we can always go see kids at the [TS]

00:58:24   your local cinema right that's a [TS]

00:58:27   different podcast so that leads into our [TS]

00:58:30   into his other subheading under cons [TS]

00:58:34   which is conflict conflict I to it that [TS]

00:58:43   this this podcast variety panelist is [TS]

00:58:44   one of the strongest assets but it would [TS]

00:58:46   work more on the podcast favorite this [TS]

00:58:47   group didn't share so many of the same [TS]

00:58:49   opinions i just might disagree [TS]

00:58:52   yeah it's got that's the stupidest thing [TS]

00:58:55   I've ever heard [TS]

00:58:56   I think he's got a point Steve what ya [TS]

00:58:59   not changing out what you said has [TS]

00:59:01   become the stupidest thing I've ever you [TS]

00:59:04   sir [TS]

00:59:04   RT is in contrast with that previous [TS]

00:59:07   piece of feedback we got about about the [TS]

00:59:08   other other opinions no good no let me [TS]

00:59:11   continue here with this isn't laps [TS]

00:59:14   cannibal who is this jonathan the shell [TS]

00:59:16   that man down show Dom I get the [TS]

00:59:18   impression anything [TS]

00:59:19   bigger than a minor negligible [TS]

00:59:20   disagreement makes makes the panelists [TS]

00:59:23   or me the host uncomfortable he almost [TS]

00:59:26   apologize for being off in the negative [TS]

00:59:27   are conflicting territory as in the [TS]

00:59:29   aaron sorkin episode dan that's that's [TS]

00:59:31   my back and actually have apologized [TS]

00:59:33   only half-jokingly for an episode that [TS]

00:59:34   got probably about as heated as a benign [TS]

00:59:36   and comfortable at episode can get I [TS]

00:59:38   refer of course to the Avengers episode [TS]

00:59:39   which cause other people referred to as [TS]

00:59:41   infamous when India not currently it is [TS]

00:59:43   expressed to start strong disagree with [TS]

00:59:45   the rest of the group will seem rather [TS]

00:59:46   taken aback ok so we talked about the [TS]

00:59:48   Avengers episode again my take on this [TS]

00:59:50   to recap is is that I don't think Andy's [TS]

00:59:53   disagreement with the problem with the [TS]

00:59:54   episode i think the problem was that the [TS]

00:59:56   episode suddenly became about us all [TS]

00:59:58   talking to eat [TS]

00:59:58   talking to eat [TS]

01:00:00   he and Andy I mean and he sort of took [TS]

01:00:02   over the episode and it became about [TS]

01:00:04   Andy's opinion instead of about the [TS]

01:00:06   movie and I think the problem there was [TS]

01:00:07   not the disagreement i think the problem [TS]

01:00:09   there was that there was a little too [TS]

01:00:11   much Andy and our responses were [TS]

01:00:14   basically trying to respond to andy and [TS]

01:00:17   you know yet in my mind that fell apart [TS]

01:00:20   but I don't think it was the [TS]

01:00:21   disagreement that did it and a lot of [TS]

01:00:24   times the disagree the lack of [TS]

01:00:26   disagreements happen randomly I have to [TS]

01:00:28   say like man of steel [TS]

01:00:30   I fully expected to be the only person [TS]

01:00:32   who didn't like the movie i actually [TS]

01:00:34   went to the trouble of inviting more [TS]

01:00:35   sense to you on on because he said he [TS]

01:00:37   liked the movie and in the end we all [TS]

01:00:40   kind of have the same criticisms of it [TS]

01:00:42   even though moisten still says he likes [TS]

01:00:44   it he did agree with a lot of the [TS]

01:00:45   criticism of it so sometimes that just [TS]

01:00:47   happens I I admit I didn't go out of my [TS]

01:00:50   way to find somebody who hated star trek [TS]

01:00:51   into darkness but I also didn't bar [TS]

01:00:55   anybody who said they didn't like it [TS]

01:00:57   from being on so but i think this is a I [TS]

01:01:00   think that's a good point i mean this is [TS]

01:01:01   one of the questions with the podcast [TS]

01:01:03   I'm interested what you guys think about [TS]

01:01:05   you know the role of conflict i hate i [TS]

01:01:08   hate to think that we're we're a podcast [TS]

01:01:10   people who just sits around going yeah I [TS]

01:01:12   liked it it's awesome like that one [TS]

01:01:13   review that i may be sad on the itunes [TS]

01:01:15   store a few years ago that said it was [TS]

01:01:17   like the chris farley show remember that [TS]

01:01:18   thing that was cool yeah that was [TS]

01:01:20   awesome [TS]

01:01:21   that's you know I definitely don't want [TS]

01:01:22   the podcast to be that this isn't debate [TS]

01:01:25   club though I mean that's not the point [TS]

01:01:27   the point is that we can raise the point [TS]

01:01:29   Steve now sorry 1.2 smell haha it's got [TS]

01:01:35   the same can't wait for this huh [TS]

01:01:37   I disagree we agreed too much to that [TS]

01:01:40   don't that never happens [TS]

01:01:41   was it the things people don't know is [TS]

01:01:42   that we like sign upsign up whatever [TS]

01:01:45   like express our interest to be on an [TS]

01:01:46   episode before any of us have seen the [TS]

01:01:48   movie so it's like oh we're going to do [TS]

01:01:49   a star trek episode whoever wants to be [TS]

01:01:51   on that like let it be known and that [TS]

01:01:54   happens before any of us have seen the [TS]

01:01:55   movies how do we know whether we're [TS]

01:01:56   gonna like all like Star Trek and I mean [TS]

01:01:58   it could be that just the start was an [TS]

01:02:00   enjoyable movie that's why we call it a [TS]

01:02:01   blight like it's it's not that was [TS]

01:02:03   actually not is that it's not it's not [TS]

01:02:06   picked based on you know what were they [TS]

01:02:08   cannot trying to find balance right like [TS]

01:02:10   we're not this isn't a political we have [TS]

01:02:13   fat people deliberately sign up [TS]

01:02:14   specifically because they think that [TS]

01:02:16   their their opinion differs from what [TS]

01:02:18   the absolutely gonna be yeah it's not [TS]

01:02:20   that were being all positive or negative [TS]

01:02:21   we always think alike its evolving think [TS]

01:02:24   sometimes we have the discussion and we [TS]

01:02:26   figure out how much more we like or [TS]

01:02:27   don't like something [TS]

01:02:28   also we do this thing called listening [TS]

01:02:30   and changing our opinion sometimes based [TS]

01:02:31   on new information is disturbing to some [TS]

01:02:33   people i have never done that have a [TS]

01:02:35   doctor who episodes are a good example [TS]

01:02:36   where like doctor who really is mixed [TS]

01:02:38   and depending on people's mood and their [TS]

01:02:40   experience with dr. food like sometimes [TS]

01:02:42   it's like we can kind of all agree on [TS]

01:02:44   what the good and bad episodes were but [TS]

01:02:46   then when it comes to assess the overall [TS]

01:02:47   season like you know I it really i think [TS]

01:02:51   it really we as a group and give a [TS]

01:02:53   reasonable assessment of the quality of [TS]

01:02:56   the product like you know I don't like [TS]

01:02:58   it was metacritic things or whatever [TS]

01:03:00   like it look if everybody loves a movie [TS]

01:03:02   and it's just get rated highly [TS]

01:03:04   everywhere and it's like oscar-nominated [TS]

01:03:06   and just universally acclaimed visit a [TS]

01:03:08   shock that we're going to have an [TS]

01:03:09   episode about it and like most of the [TS]

01:03:11   people on the panel are going to like it [TS]

01:03:12   you know where it were not it's not like [TS]

01:03:14   equal time on the the radio waves where [TS]

01:03:17   we have to have someone giving the [TS]

01:03:19   opposing view on a movie that everybody [TS]

01:03:21   loves right if it's a great movie [TS]

01:03:23   we're gonna have an episode and we're [TS]

01:03:24   all going to like it and like I said we [TS]

01:03:26   signed up for expressed interest to be [TS]

01:03:28   on that episode before any of us saw the [TS]

01:03:30   movie or read the book or whatever [TS]

01:03:32   a lot of the time so I don't think [TS]

01:03:35   there's any bias one way or the other I [TS]

01:03:36   think we're just reflecting the quality [TS]

01:03:39   of the thing in some sort of average [TS]

01:03:41   size that way if I may disagree with [TS]

01:03:43   myself John circulator i would say I got [TS]

01:03:46   nothin [TS]

01:03:46   the I you know I I a couple pieces of [TS]

01:03:49   feedback work i'm trying to guess at how [TS]

01:03:50   the the episodes are our program didn't [TS]

01:03:53   I can you know as John was saying of I [TS]

01:03:56   send out a note i used oodle.com to send [TS]

01:04:00   out a note with all the time that I'm [TS]

01:04:01   capable of recording an episode and I [TS]

01:04:03   say we're doing an episode [TS]

01:04:05   here's what here's what it's about [TS]

01:04:07   here's a link let me know if you can [TS]

01:04:08   make it and then people RSVP essentially [TS]

01:04:10   and then hopefully if they've rsvp'd we [TS]

01:04:13   find a common time and people show up [TS]

01:04:16   and we do the episode what what you get [TS]

01:04:18   when you do that is something that is [TS]

01:04:19   not as together as if we were trying to [TS]

01:04:21   create this sort of statistically valid [TS]

01:04:24   speed most difference [TS]

01:04:27   a prospective opinions sort of thing and [TS]

01:04:29   so it is much more catch-as-catch-can I [TS]

01:04:32   don't know it at the exception is really [TS]

01:04:35   when I saw that voice s to do man of [TS]

01:04:36   steel specifically because I wanted him [TS]

01:04:39   because he said he liked it and any not [TS]

01:04:42   co likewise I sought out Andy for that [TS]

01:04:44   episode because he knew he was gonna [TS]

01:04:46   like it and I he was unable to be there [TS]

01:04:50   just the one common time we had he was [TS]

01:04:51   on a train so we couldn't do it so some [TS]

01:04:53   of it is just that it's scattershot that [TS]

01:04:55   people choose to be the on the episodes [TS]

01:04:57   that they want to be on and that there [TS]

01:04:59   there's a continuous-time and then we do [TS]

01:05:03   it and then it just sort of happened and [TS]

01:05:05   like I said with Man of Steel had no [TS]

01:05:06   idea what the general thoughts were [TS]

01:05:08   going to be a star trek into darkness I [TS]

01:05:10   I didn't know I had an idea that most [TS]

01:05:12   people liked it but I didn't know for [TS]

01:05:14   sure and we signed up some people you [TS]

01:05:16   know signed up before they even saw the [TS]

01:05:18   movie so you know it and I think doctor [TS]

01:05:21   who is a good example where we can have [TS]

01:05:23   a lot of different opinions within even [TS]

01:05:26   if like this year we sort of all came to [TS]

01:05:28   the same agreement about the the season [TS]

01:05:30   being a little bit disappointing but we [TS]

01:05:31   are different episodes that we liked and [TS]

01:05:33   didn't like which I thought was was good [TS]

01:05:35   so I like it when there's when there's [TS]

01:05:37   stuff to chew on and we have [TS]

01:05:38   disagreements or different perspectives [TS]

01:05:41   on things i don't like it if it's just [TS]

01:05:43   seen as being this kind of Politburo [TS]

01:05:44   that's gonna be reflecting the [TS]

01:05:47   agreed-upon opinion but sometimes that [TS]

01:05:49   just happens when there is disagreement [TS]

01:05:51   my goal is there you know I want to make [TS]

01:05:53   it a free-flowing conversation and not [TS]

01:05:56   have it get derailed by one person [TS]

01:05:58   disagreeing which is my problem with the [TS]

01:05:59   Avengers episode and it's not Andy [TS]

01:06:01   having a his opinion I think that's fine [TS]

01:06:03   i disagree with it but I think it's [TS]

01:06:05   great that he had it i think how I [TS]

01:06:06   handled that episode is why I don't like [TS]

01:06:09   it so much because I felt like I let and [TS]

01:06:11   ego and and it became about him instead [TS]

01:06:15   of it just being about all of us and our [TS]

01:06:17   opinions of the movie so well and [TS]

01:06:18   speaking of the Politburo thing it's not [TS]

01:06:20   like we get together and like all right [TS]

01:06:21   guys we think of this party the party [TS]

01:06:23   line for the inaudible is that we all [TS]

01:06:25   like this but we didn't like this one [TS]

01:06:27   thing right here but overall we really [TS]

01:06:28   liked it at the first time we're talking [TS]

01:06:30   to each other at all about it usually is [TS]

01:06:31   on the podcast yeah and we've been [TS]

01:06:33   beforehand we say save it for the [TS]

01:06:35   podcast right yeah I try I try to not [TS]

01:06:37   reveal what I thought of something [TS]

01:06:39   you know on Twitter or whatever before [TS]

01:06:41   we do an episode so I did you go and not [TS]

01:06:43   know I still don't know what John [TS]

01:06:45   thought about half the things i was [TS]

01:06:46   turned up like where it's really not the [TS]

01:06:48   show's charter to argue about stuff in [TS]

01:06:51   that the purpose of the show is to sit [TS]

01:06:52   around and chat about stuff and there's [TS]

01:06:54   plenty of places that do that and it [TS]

01:06:56   disconnected i would say more [TS]

01:06:58   I can't even imagine the the kind of [TS]

01:06:59   feedback you would get if you started [TS]

01:07:01   going that direction and deliberately [TS]

01:07:03   got people on that we're going to [TS]

01:07:04   disagree vehemently with each right [TS]

01:07:05   right that's why I don't want to do it i [TS]

01:07:07   think the setting is a better as a [TS]

01:07:09   better term for what we do when we like [TS]

01:07:10   it or dislike it we talked about this [TS]

01:07:12   section we talk about well you know we [TS]

01:07:14   we as I you know a bunch of people [TS]

01:07:17   pointed out and of course this is [TS]

01:07:18   something that John has done his other [TS]

01:07:19   podcast to I mean you can like something [TS]

01:07:21   and still kind of admit the flaws i mean [TS]

01:07:24   what we've done a lot of episodes the [TS]

01:07:25   wrath of khan episode was entirely [TS]

01:07:27   people who love and just absolutely [TS]

01:07:29   adore that that movie and then Steve I [TS]

01:07:33   adore to and and uh you know we picked [TS]

01:07:36   it apart in so many different ways but [TS]

01:07:38   in the end it was all with love right [TS]

01:07:40   and and still the star wars movies are [TS]

01:07:41   like that when I was because we love we [TS]

01:07:44   know occasionally we will destroy [TS]

01:07:45   something like man of steel or star wars [TS]

01:07:47   episode one and some people don't like [TS]

01:07:50   that because they they prefer us and out [TS]

01:07:53   there was a nice piece of feedback on [TS]

01:07:55   Twitter from michael johnson dr wave at [TS]

01:07:57   Pixar was a very nice guy who said I I [TS]

01:08:00   you know I really prefer when you guys [TS]

01:08:01   talk about something you like and [TS]

01:08:04   tearing apart something that you didn't [TS]

01:08:06   like it's sort of like a waste of time [TS]

01:08:07   because they're you know it's that's [TS]

01:08:10   they're just better things to do more [TS]

01:08:12   constructive things to do with one's [TS]

01:08:13   time and I think you know I i enjoy the [TS]

01:08:16   episode 10 episode but I wouldn't have [TS]

01:08:18   every episode be that and I do like the [TS]

01:08:21   idea of us under things were [TS]

01:08:22   enthusiastic about and then picking them [TS]

01:08:24   apart with enthusiasm and love not [TS]

01:08:27   picking them apart because we want to [TS]

01:08:29   destroy them because I just think about [TS]

01:08:31   the person who was like crying laughing [TS]

01:08:33   listening to the Phantom Menace episode [TS]

01:08:35   would you deny that person their [TS]

01:08:36   enjoyment just because you don't like [TS]

01:08:37   the kind of episode and vice versa that [TS]

01:08:39   you know different strokes but we want [TS]

01:08:41   every episode is not going to be that [TS]

01:08:42   episode 1 episode but every now and then [TS]

01:08:44   we will we will do that and and and [TS]

01:08:46   that's fine that you know when I was in [TS]

01:08:48   college I took creative writing course [TS]

01:08:50   where we got created on our criticism of [TS]

01:08:52   the others [TS]

01:08:53   good stories not on our short story and [TS]

01:08:56   I I brought some people to tears in that [TS]

01:09:00   class uh-huh [TS]

01:09:02   you got me but you know what that's just [TS]

01:09:03   part of it i mean that's just it's it [TS]

01:09:06   it's not done and out of malice it's [TS]

01:09:09   done out of you know trying to see if [TS]

01:09:11   you're critiquing somebody's writing [TS]

01:09:13   you're trying to accept that one guy he [TS]

01:09:14   made me really angry know so I said [TS]

01:09:16   story with that [TS]

01:09:16   no it's not malice it's eerie trying to [TS]

01:09:19   help somebody if they're working on [TS]

01:09:20   something or you're trying to understand [TS]

01:09:21   a work of some kind i take that part [TS]

01:09:24   that poor zombie ladies probably crying [TS]

01:09:26   right now [TS]

01:09:26   yeah i'm sure into her money she's [TS]

01:09:29   wiping her face with thousand-dollar [TS]

01:09:30   bills [TS]

01:09:31   yeah a friend of mine high school wrote [TS]

01:09:33   he was in a writing class and he wrote [TS]

01:09:34   an essay that was called this a personal [TS]

01:09:36   statement and he turned in only the [TS]

01:09:38   teacher graded it and she want it long [TS]

01:09:40   he did not go back to the class that I [TS]

01:09:43   am was Al Pacino yikes sorry I just [TS]

01:09:45   assumed it had to and with no had to end [TS]

01:09:47   with some sort of blending right like I [TS]

01:09:49   had to be just friends you know and then [TS]

01:09:51   he was out between us mailman it turns [TS]

01:09:53   out I you know when I when I was done [TS]

01:09:55   with that critique adventure story class [TS]

01:09:57   the teacher said well now that Jason's [TS]

01:09:59   put away surgical tools that I was like [TS]

01:10:01   okay maybe maybe I overdid it a little [TS]

01:10:03   bit but you know where is the Midwest [TS]

01:10:05   where you grew up in California you so [TS]

01:10:08   people out that's interesting [TS]

01:10:11   we have surgical tools here people and [TS]

01:10:15   we have no idea live here and there is [TS]

01:10:17   this thing there is that idea that you [TS]

01:10:18   should be insulated that certain things [TS]

01:10:19   should not be criticized p like other [TS]

01:10:22   environments in which criticism is meant [TS]

01:10:24   to be tepid praise or may very tepid you [TS]

01:10:28   know it's sort of bland application of [TS]

01:10:31   things and it's like I think you know [TS]

01:10:32   real criticism is can be hard feedback [TS]

01:10:35   and I think that's down the line i [TS]

01:10:37   disagree i'll take my stupid ideas and [TS]

01:10:39   hit the ground [TS]

01:10:40   alright it is it is fun you know it's [TS]

01:10:42   fun to talk about stuff that we that we [TS]

01:10:44   like or that we think is interesting i [TS]

01:10:47   think the worst episodes would be the [TS]

01:10:49   ones where we were trying to take apart [TS]

01:10:50   something that had that had nothing in [TS]

01:10:53   it i mean John quite nicely i keep [TS]

01:10:56   referring to the flophouse this [TS]

01:10:57   wonderful podcast John syracuse [TS]

01:10:59   recommended to me which I love fantastic [TS]

01:11:01   hilariously funny podcast they see bad [TS]

01:11:04   movies and some of the movie [TS]

01:11:05   they have a lot to talk about even if [TS]

01:11:07   they're mostly movies that they call the [TS]

01:11:09   bad bad movies their movies that are not [TS]

01:11:11   even so bad it's funny they're just bad [TS]

01:11:13   but there are ones where they'll go half [TS]

01:11:15   an hour talking about what happens in [TS]

01:11:16   the matter how bizarre and bad they are [TS]

01:11:18   and then there are others where they [TS]

01:11:19   talk for five minutes and they're like I [TS]

01:11:20   I have nothing more to say about it and [TS]

01:11:22   that too much in my line that's the [TS]

01:11:24   worst kind of thing for us to talk about [TS]

01:11:25   is the thing that's uninteresting [TS]

01:11:27   whether we like it or hate it if we can [TS]

01:11:29   find some interesting stuff about it [TS]

01:11:31   then it's worth talking about [TS]

01:11:33   we need some sort of a tag on each [TS]

01:11:35   episode saying hateful episode here [TS]

01:11:37   that's right the danger for the [TS]

01:11:40   audience's when they when people have [TS]

01:11:42   some part of their self-worth or [TS]

01:11:45   identity tied up in some yeah media [TS]

01:11:48   thing and any criticism of that thing is [TS]

01:11:51   that they take on as like you know an [TS]

01:11:53   attack on themselves because they [TS]

01:11:54   identify so strong with it's their [TS]

01:11:56   favorite movie and if we say it's done [TS]

01:11:58   then we're saying that they're dumb yeah [TS]

01:11:59   I'm like that that whole cycle happens [TS]

01:12:01   and to some degree that's unavoidable I [TS]

01:12:03   mean like I didn't we all think that's [TS]

01:12:05   that's a big deal like you know we talk [TS]

01:12:07   about movies that you can understand [TS]

01:12:09   that if you're making some fun of [TS]

01:12:10   someone's removing a lot of us are you [TS]

01:12:12   working a tech industry you understand [TS]

01:12:13   how like if you talk about android vs [TS]

01:12:16   iOS or in the old days you know mac vs [TS]

01:12:18   windows people will get tied up with [TS]

01:12:19   that but when I briefly did a car [TS]

01:12:21   related podcast i found even more [TS]

01:12:23   virulent strain of this thing people [TS]

01:12:25   identify incredibly strong with cars and [TS]

01:12:28   car brands to the degree that we would [TS]

01:12:30   get hate mail merely because we didn't [TS]

01:12:32   you ever mention a particular make and [TS]

01:12:35   model of car like I think a lot of that [TS]

01:12:37   has cut these feedback that we get I [TS]

01:12:39   don't like your negative episodes it a [TS]

01:12:42   lot of that I I mean maybe everything [TS]

01:12:43   like it was like it's not that it didn't [TS]

01:12:46   like your negative episode so that i [TS]

01:12:47   really like the thing that you were [TS]

01:12:48   criticizing like rarely do i hear i [TS]

01:12:51   really hated that movie too but I didn't [TS]

01:12:52   like your negative episode about it like [TS]

01:12:54   I really hear that one that's why [TS]

01:12:56   nobody's like man that phantom menace [TS]

01:12:57   episode was terrible i got a couple of [TS]

01:12:59   selected the people the people who liked [TS]

01:13:02   Phantom Menace said that you know I'm [TS]

01:13:03   saying like the steelers those people [TS]

01:13:05   are diluted I think some people don't [TS]

01:13:06   like us they like us here at me like he [TS]

01:13:09   was getting excited about things we like [TS]

01:13:11   and don't like us tearing get excited [TS]

01:13:14   about things come together hate yeah [TS]

01:13:16   well I rather talk about things that I [TS]

01:13:18   like case in point I don't enjoy talking [TS]

01:13:20   about the works of your grant but I have [TS]

01:13:22   to yes because it is part of our premise [TS]

01:13:26   right but we wouldn't choose to read [TS]

01:13:28   mirror grant for an episode we're [TS]

01:13:30   reading mira grant for for the hugo [TS]

01:13:32   episode and it just so happens to have [TS]

01:13:34   been nominated that's not it's not like [TS]

01:13:35   we keep reading those books it's like oh [TS]

01:13:38   boy i get the rib and believe me we'd [TS]

01:13:40   rather not read those boys but she seems [TS]

01:14:03   book when you get your books published [TS]

01:14:04   asian so write a scathing yes that's [TS]

01:14:07   right i think the moral of this [TS]

01:14:09   criticism is not everybody likes [TS]

01:14:11   everything [TS]

01:14:12   yeah well as well though it's reasonable [TS]

01:14:17   go ahead Steve tell me to eat it [TS]

01:14:21   you said oh you'd like the same when you [TS]

01:14:26   ask for Jason but we should thank [TS]

01:14:29   jonathan for his very well thought out [TS]

01:14:30   yes because he actually went to iTunes [TS]

01:14:33   and wrote a small novel [TS]

01:14:35   yes I using something in patent program [TS]

01:14:38   but he spent time to rethink it out and [TS]

01:14:41   and put it well thought-out criticism [TS]

01:14:42   together and yes absolutely [TS]

01:14:44   thank you I'm just said it was invalid [TS]
