i don't understand the appeal of podcasts.
who has time to listen to all this shit? most of these go for over an hour. how long are you people stuck in traffic? i commute 15 mins to work.. is this hugely abnormal in america??
apart from the physical theft of time in your daily life, i just don't see how every one of those podcasts can be minute-to-minute GOLD. the only ones i can see that might be interesting that reelist posted are The Treatment cos you actually get to hear the creators of the work talking about it, the breaking bad one obviously for the same reason, and maybe How Did This Get Made cos it sounds like it could be funny in the MST3K tradition.
other than that, most of these are filled with nobodies talking about things they know nothing about, or at best telling me something i already know. who the hell cares what some random guy has to say about PTA? are they offering in depth analyses of the kind i listed here
? is it something you just like to play in the background without actually paying attention to it? cos i think music is probably the best void filler in that regard.
good for marc maron and other people for finding something to keep them busy and off hard drugs, that's great. but of all media a person can consume, i find this one to be the biggest waste of time. movies, documentaries, music, news, tv shows, video games, BOOKS, comics.. why not go straight to the source? has anyone on any of these podcasts ever talked about PDL for more than an hour non stop and actually managed to say something interesting? i sincerely doubt it.
