Yeah, It's That Bad just dropped their last episode, where they actually acknowledge and discuss the problems some people had with the show.

Joel, Martin, and Kevin basically replied (politely) with "if you reveal this information, then we'll have to end the show." The fans called their bluff, and that's why it's over.

The show's content rarely rose above PG-13 levels, so I'm guessing one of the guys simply isn't allowed to do creative projects outside of work. It wasn't my favorite movie podcast, but it's sad to know that I'll no longer have an outlet to listen to those guys.

Holy poo poo the comment from the guy who tried to unmask them was one of the dumbest things I have ever read. They wanted exposure for their own lovely podcast so they decided t reveal their names and places of work? What kind of massive loser do you have to be to do that?

What kind of moron do you have to be to nonchalantly kill the thing you're supposedly the fan of? Mind boggles. I thought it was "my boss found out about the podcast and told me to cut it out" thing and this is just weird.

I don't think their actual fans. Reading their comment it reads like they desperately wanted attention for their own show, saw this one was relatively popular, made up some bullshit to try and justify it and then, because they're massive nerds, though A RIVETING EXPOSE on some bad movie podcasters that included personal details lik exactly where they work would get them listeners.

Seriously, what is this garbage?

Well, I warned them! My college friends and I have a pretty popular blog and need to do this. We listen to this show every week and love it, but, we didn't think it was fair that the guys remained such a mystery. That's really the only thing we all had a problem with. So, after months of digging, we were going to do an unveiling of the men behind the podcast on our own podcast on Wednesday, July 31! So, we sent Joel an email and he said that if we post this, that all their jobs were in jeopardy and they would be fired for doing this podcast. We knew that was bogus. So, for all you hardcore fans out there, here's some "Yeah, it's that bad trivia" to use at your next party! Martin **** - he's the lead graphic designer working at **** somewhere in the Northeast. Kevin **** - he's a CPA and an operations manager for **** and used to work at **** a few years ago. We're still looking into Joel, who remains very undercover but we do know his last name is ****! We have some pictures of the guys, as well! See, they're just normal guys! We love the show and just wanted the hosts to not remain such a mystery anymore!!!!! Thanks guys!

I was wondering what the banned Helldump guys were up to these days.

The latest HDTGM is pretty good, especially the interview with Matthew Berry. He's got a pretty good sense of humor about that movie and some cool stories about Paul Hogan trying to gently caress him/his writing partner over.

As someone who's produced a podcast for the past few years, I can definitely say this problem comes up every now and again; it's needless paranoia, but some employers can be dicks. I guess I don't really understand the repercussions of someone finding out you did something on the Internet, because we're all kind of doing stuff on the Internet every day.

Weird. I stopped listening to Yeah, It's That Bad when they switched to an all-viewer request format. It made the film selection a lot more boring and I wasn't very fond of a lot of aspects of the show. But my own distaste for the show didn't make me hope they would stop. You've got to be a really pathetic person to do this.

Some companies are super strict. They don't want things to reflect badly on them. The show wasn't bad, but they did curse a bit so I could sorta see a really strict company cracking down.

Oh you thought it was about entertaining the audience with fun sleight of hand and illusions igniting their childhood wonder?

After taking a summer vacation through August (we did it first WHM ) my lovely little podcast came back and recorded an episode on the Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore teen(?) comedy(??) LOL a DAY before the VMA shitstorm occurred. I think this is one of our better episodes so far and it's relevant without making a bunch of twerk twerk Miley jokes.

Blargh oh my god yes, I have read fanfiction, in a way it's a guilty pleasure/so bad it's good thing. I can't read trashy romance though. Fanfiction..oh god..some of the anatomical limitations are..well..let's just say these women don't very much und

So, I've listened to a few of the podcasts recommended in this thread to fill the YITB sized hole in my podcasting soul (or whatever). I found the Flophouse fun, and I liked some of How Did This Get Made, and I do like what I've heard of Alcohollywood, but so far, I think the one that's grabbed me the most has been We Hate Movies. Yes, the episodes are long, but I'm actually impressed at their ability to talk about stupid movies that long, and make it so entertaining. The length is also pretty good, considering I tend to listen to podcasts when I'm doing illustrations, and I'm not going to be doing an illustration that only takes 40 minutes. So yes, I give We Hate Movies my vote - based on the episodes I've listened to so far (Tuff Turf, and Foodfight), but I did really enjoy the Flophouse episode on Bratz, and the HDTGM episode on Spice World. I don't know, there's something about ripping apart dumb teen movies that I find way more entertaining than say...dumb sci fi or dumb action.

TheRealGunde posted:

I think most people haven't yet grasped two things. Employers haven't grasped that people have a presence on the internet outside of their work, and it's personal stuff and doesn't have anything to do with their job (after all, why can't people be a little silly in their downtime?), and some employees haven't yet grasped the fact that they can be googled by employers, or family members, and stupid things that they wrote about or said or did could become public. In regards to my review show, I at first tried to keep my information completely separate from my online identity, mainly so that my family wouldn't find out (because i guess I thought they'd find it stupid, or be overly critical), and also so that prospective employers wouldn't find it too easy to track me down (and I used a different username to the one that I'd used since I was a young idiot of 14.) Thing is, after a while, my show got linked to my Twitter which has my real name on it, and my family found out, so I didn't keep the secret very well. I doubt it would cause much concern if it was found out by employers (unless they were homophobes, because the show is primarily about LGBT cinema), but I think if you didn't know about it, you probably wouldn't find it in a cursory google. I do, however, try to keep critical or specific information about my workplace out of my Twitter or Facebook, because that's the sort of thing that *does* get people fired, or not hired. But the idea of not being able to have a hobby outside of work? I think the employers of YITB were crazily overzealous if their jobs would be in jeopardy for doing a podcast. And if that were the case, people really should have respected that, and not gone all internet detective on them.

I find WHM good, but really negative (as a name like "We Hate Movies" would suggest). Flop House takes a break by being extremely random, and its one of the podcasts that really brings more to bear as you go along. The Wyatt Cyenac episode is twice as good the second time when you realize how contest and 7-Pounds related it all gets.

Yea I like how WHM and Flophouse are basically two sides of the same coin. They both have great chemistry between each other and all that, and both do sometimes random bits (WHM's 'Sex Corral' bit was loving amazing), but Flophouse just focuses on movies that flopped either in quality or in money and sometimes goes 'ya know that was a pretty good lovely movie' and WHM just focuses on hot street trash.

Well, they kind of liked Tuff Turf? I watched it. I can confirm its insanity, its sleazy, rapey vibe, bizarre shifts in tone, and a blazing undercurrent of homoeroticism. For some reason, I seem to enjoy bad movie podcasts about really dodgy teen movies and girly movies especially. Loved the Flophouse's episode on Bratz, the HDTGM one on Spice World, and WHM's Tuff Turf was so great. I also listened to their review of This Means War, which I also thought was excellent (the review, not the film). I remember seeing the trailer for that in the movie theatre, and at the end, I could very clearly hear someone in the theatre simply saying "No." My thoughts entirely.

Perhaps a little off topic but I feel that people here would appreciate the Best Of The Worst segment from Red Letter Media. They review three bad movies each episode and they've had some real gems. With classics like Gymkata and Miami Connection to some really strange stuff like The Dance Of Birth and hopefully one day Tree Stand Safety. I'd definitely recommend fans of bad movies check them out.

Their newest episode had a movie straight out of a WHMs side order of sleaze which looks to be coming back.

Yeah you did it!

I have posted this in the past in the Pimp Your Podcast thread, but I figured I'd share here in the Podcasts about bad movies thread as well.

I'm one of the co-hosts for the Bloody Good Horror Podcast, which I actually saw mentioned a couple pages back! We focus on new theatrically released horror flicks every week, then turn to Netflix when there's nothing new out. As you can imagine with horror movies...we cover a lot of bad stuff! You can find us on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast...ror/id276600697

If this is out of line, I apologize!

That said, I'm stoked to find this as outside of NOTLP, I haven't had a good Movie podcast in awhile. I got kind of tired of Doug Benson's show awhile ago, (nothing against him, I just don't always agree with him) and haven't really found a good replacement. I'll definitely be checking out some of the mentions in here though, there's a couple that sound like they'd hit the spot.
