every 'funny' internet person eventually becomes very sincere and turns to the camera and tells you to get out there and vote democrat. well the jokes on them im never going to become funny or vote democrat!!

Favori


Not limited to the internet era.

I don't think there has been a funny person with the courage of their convictions since the early 19th century. La Caricature editors impersonating the prosecutor to satirize their own treason trials had balls. Jon Stewart, not so much...

I refuse to watch evangelical Christian action movies with Kevin Sorbo or read trad Catholic columnists for laughs myself. I require someone to summarize them for me.

So I’ve been listening to proles of the round table on my commute and I checked out their website to find out that the podcast fell apart two weeks ago. The main guy who did the editing wanted to take all the donation money and open a brewery, also he was accused of being a shithead. Still a pretty solid ml podcast with some good guests but it is extremely “Twitter left” and they liked to make a lot of jokes about memes

"shithead with a brewery made out of embezzled podcast donation money" sounds like a prime candidate for tHe rHizzonE's Next Top Poster

the reason why literally every vaguely left of centre political jokeman podcast is unlistenable. personally i don't want to listen to john oliver but 5 years younger and cosplaying as a communist

They had Grover Furr on once and it’s their only good episode. Everything else is unlistenable. Imagine one guy reading his effort post but it takes 2 1/2 hrs because every other member has to butt in with the least comedic joke possible every couple seconds.

The left twitter description is pretty accurate, the emotional vibe swings wildly, one episode a dude was just sobbing on the podcast.

#449
the name of the podcast is kind of a giveaway that their sense of humor is trash lol
#450
a podcast where the producer doesn’t tell Grover Furr about the hosts or give him an audio feed to their microphones and he just reads his book aloud. when the hosts try to talk the producer just slowly turns their mikes down over and over and sends them side texts telling them they’re doing great

swampside chats do a lot of good reading but they make mean and hurtful anti-ML jokes and one of them went off on how bolivia wasnt a coup cos Evo had legitimately annoyed some ppl and been imperfect and if he had simply not done that all the CIAs in the world wouldn't have been able to touch him. I think. I dunno it was annoying

moderate rebels had a really good episode on western "socialist" opportunism

I really wanna like that podcast but I'm sorry, if you are quite literally born into a news media family you should either A) know how to fix your buzzing microphone or B) know how to edit the audio recording after the fact.

Historic.ly's latest episode is an interview with Torkil Lauesen. Unfortunately Torkil recorded his audio on a tin can so it's hard to listen to, if only there were some sort of visual format that this interview could be published with...

finally found a good podcast

people need to stop getting into the mindset that whatever they're saying is interesting because they beat you over the head with how many epic lefty leftist statements they can adlib or how desperate they are to say their next quirky line. Figure out the content first, they're already a socialist or whatever. It'll seep through either way.

The Five Year Podcast will also inexplicably have people making the same facial expression as another person next to them, or the same facial expression they made on the previous episode 5 years prior.

i dont really think podcasts are a good idea because it gives a voice sample to the authorities and also because theres too many of them and personally i dont have the patience for listening to three guys talk in a monotone voice about things for an hour straight. dont know how so many people can do that, i talk to people all day long so when im in my room i dont want to hear another conversation i cant even participate in.
id be down with a collective trimestrial zine though, maybe have the good posts (decided on upvotes/interesting takes) from that period condensed into a 20-30 pages format, some cool art we all submit, some frontpage worthy posts also. i assume some of you have experience when it comes to editing pamphlets/leaflets so we could even pool money to put out a paper version at some point - im not talking thousands of units, some limited edition stuff, like a 100 max - and send the money collected to the new peoples army or the naxalites

podcasts simply instill the audio equivalent of TLDR for me. why fill my head with another voice(s) when i've got millions of other ones screaming at me at all times?
#475
I did radio when I was younger. I have never listened to a podcast except when someone else is playing one. They seem like whatever. That's my story, sincerely former Daddyholes cars.

I'd say that the proliferation of podcasts is due to the fact that computerized speech transcription is still a very crude, inexact, and rudimentary science, so you can say a lot more in audio that you might not be allowed to say in print with the fair assumption in mind that no one is ever going to transcribe it. This obviously has benefits for both the far left and the far right, politically.

You also have to consider the audience and what medium you might reach them with.

Ever-increasing numbers of people are already forced to read screens at work all day long. Are they going to come home from their screen-reading jobs and read more screens at home, too? I think the audio mediums reach them because they're willing to have such things playing as background noise while they're doing something that isn't screen-reading.

The answer: yes, and they’ll listen to podcasts the whole time too
