The McElroy's make a lot of podcasts, most of which are pretty entertaining. Let's discuss them here.



Old thread: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3760191&userid=0&perpage=40&pagenumber=1


edit: first time making a thread here, god drat forgot the post icon. Can someone change it to either Drama or Humor.

This is really true. It's really neat how a guy who spent his whole life doing local radio bred three children who, basically, do the same thing. I'd love seeing Clint on the show, or heck, a show of his own.

Tho I suppose the dude also deserves a nice retirement too.

I've changed a lot since I started hanging with Sonic, but I can't depend on him forever. I know I can do this by myself! Okay, Eggman! Bring it on!

hopefully this time everyone stays cool and remembers the colden rule of mcelory fandom:

posting to frustrate each other is not a fun way to post because we're all on the same team and that team is to have fun together and to make it fun for all our audiences. And so when people make posts just to frustrate each other and just to troll each other, there's enough of that in the world today, of people trolling each other just to be mean and to be hurtful, and if we're gonna post in this space together we need to do it because we want each other to have fun and not because we're trying to frustrate each other, cause there's enough frustrating things in the world right now and there's enough we can't control, and one of the things we can control is that everyone is here to have fun and not waste each others' time and so when we make decisions that are meant to troll each other, that's something that bad people do.

He's had a bad week. Chalk it up to general frustration for how he's directed TAZ over the past months + an innocent but oblivious group of tweets + that very 'oof' twitch rant he dived into when he got trolled. He's off Twitter and maybe twitch for now tho, so hey, hopefully the break does him well.

Their stuff in general is still chugging along tho and pretty entertaining. It's more that that's all the news/discussionworthy stuff about them lately, for worse.

there's a lot of people who used to be McElroy fans that sort of keep an eye on things still and that was a big enough meltdown that got spread far enough that it caught everyone's attention combined with the fact that it happened two days after he was "on a break" from social media for another incident

he's streaming right now on twitch with a bunch of much younger fans

Making this thread be about BDG as well is an awesome idea. Has a very similar energy to the McElroys and deserves to be discussed.

Also there's nothing bad to say about him at all as he is perfect and amazing.

Very excited to see what he does post-Polygon. Fella's certainly trying to expand his horizons, hoping and expecting he turns to doing something larger than 20 minute youtube videos with his buds.

Makes me wonder in general, Justin has made pretty overt gesture towards becoming an actual voice actor. Wonder if the rest of them are eyeing where they can exit in five years from the podcasting empire into other media.

I agree. At some point I may do a bigger post about him for the uninitiated.

Is Amnesty not popular? I liked that quite a bit.

Also what's up everybody? I think Travis is a dumb piss baby.

They bled a lot of listeners during the experimental arcs, because they just went on way too long. I think quite a few came back for Amnesty though, and most seemed to like it. Graduation has been a sharp decline, though.

The experimental arcs were a hoot. Worst case, we got to hear a drastically different DM / systems previewed. Amnesty didn't hit the highs of Balance, imho, but it was still a pretty fun environment and fun characters.

Indeed tho, Graduation has bricked the podcast, which I feel safe saying outside of my humble opinion. They have to be seeing the listener decline, so hoping they end it soon and get on to the next arc. Then again, Griffin's having another kid soon, so maybe they're keeping it alive to pad out the time for him to prep another big thing.

Ya ever feel like you know too much about the lives of strangers? Feeling that tonight indeed.

I went into Amnesty expecting it nowhere to be as intense and deep as Balance and it was good fun. I fell out of Graduation and man looking back it was a bad idea for Travis to map it out to take place across 5 years in the game like it was his attempt at Harry Potter (I meant it was from what I saw of it). I'm expecting at some point that Travis either rushes it with time skips or has it end partway with all the plots resolved before they graduate. He made a tall order and doesn't seem to be able to fulfill it.

The new theme song is way better than the old one, but they really only need to play about half of it. I assume they just played the whole song this time because it was the first time theyíve used it?

The ad this week (for One Bad Mother) was almost unlistenable. Itís bad when the ads are only 30 seconds long but they feel longer than the actual show.

I have never heard an ad for a show that actually just sounded like a back door for a piece of that show's merchandise. until today.
