Nothing has really changed and yesterdays show was super awkward. For a show that suppose to introduce a new audience for them, Ron came off as a pissy little bitch. It's just a song, calm the gently caress down man.

Todays show was a little better, Fez was pretty funny but you can tell Paul ribbing him a little bit got to him. I'm liking everyone sitting in with comedians. Big Jay episodes were always my favorite and they're 2 for 2 with the comedians they've brought in. I loved the game they played even if it was stupid. Ron wanted to be comedy speed but hiring shelby, as much as I love him, is not exactly what I think of when I think of speed. If Fez is ever gone, I think the three of them will do just fine.

First shows are always clusterfucks, I thought Ron and Shelby did a pretty good job.

I was listening to old Ron & Fez bits on youtube and heard Ron mention that he isn't/wasn't allowed to do live reads. What's the story with that?

Marketing being dicks. You make up one company mascot and have him talk about being raped in the middle of a live read and they won't let you do any more live reads. They just don't get it.

Just google Carby and Little Carby of the Carbonite live reads. I think after that absolutely amazing spectacle Ron was put on hiatus from live reads. There may have been one or two after that but that I remember was the biggie.

IIRC, the Identity Guard one is what got him pulled for a long time from the live reads.

Also, I don't know why it's not on YouTube but here's a twenty minute live read for Pennystock Chaser. http://ronfez.net/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=3333

I don't know why they didn't value Ronnie's contributions more.

Jimmy's bitching about being on the Nerdist (5 months after the fact) was really bad yesterday. Apparently it was enough to cause a small problem because Chris Hardwick posted a comment or two about it on O&A's subreddit explaining the situation-- he said he wished Jim went to him first before doing it on air. If you ask me that's kind of embarrassing for Jim.

The audio quality on Rawdog, is actually pretty bad. Flipping back and forth from Rawdog to O&A is like cassette vs. flac

The online stream sounds okay, but it blows on my radio in the car. I think i remember hearing that the O&A channel is one of only a couple talk channels that were in stereo.I don't know if that alone explains the difference, but it is such a step down in quality.

And Fez is back to being a crybaby because him reading a list of 42(!) public shamings got derailed by Colin being in. Because that's what we want, Fez reading something off of the iBang again.

I'm convinced that the hype of "the new R&F show" was just a work as to not make O&A butthurt about Fez's desire to leave the channel. Literally nothing has changed.

Bring back the Saturday Night Virus. I don't care if you liked the shows or not but it was at least decent content instead of REPLAY REPLAY REPLAY REPLAY.

I don't really buy the "Don't have money to pay people to do shows" although that's their justification. I like listening to Sam and Dave, Big Kevs Geek Stuff (I'm the only one), Lazlow's show was pretty good too.

According to Bill Burr and Joe Derosa it took a monumental bit of effort on their part just to get payed for Uninformed, and that's why they tried to do a podcast together (which only lasted 6 or so episodes as far as I know).

There's no bigger fan of Ron than me, and I get how frustrating it can be, but if I wanted to hear someone passive aggressively poo poo all over the staff I'd just go into work. It's really annoying.

He's a baby but he did the podcast to plug his Epix special, which does no good for him if they sit on it for 5 months.

He ended up being far angrier at his worthless management team than the Nerdist people by the end of it.
