Trashfuture is the only good one, the rest are bad. Unless you count balthazar speedboat and britainology as separate series, in which case there are three good ones and I love them

Any reason why for you? Just the subject matter they go over not interesting or not liking the hosts themselves or the chemistry?

Okay so specifically: WTYP doesn't work because you've got donoteat going patiently through some disaster while Alice and the other guy shout jokes at him, and it's like watching someone try to build a wall while being pelted with baseballs. It would be a much better podcast if it was just him talking, especially because the other guy whose name I refuse to remember is just painfully unfunny.
WAHOAWTD is fine I guess, I just don't care about anything they're discussing.
Lions suffers from a similar problem in that none of the hosts are actually funny. They have no comedy skills at all but insist on trying to riff which makes every episode like pulling teeth. Joe in particular is just a black hole into which all attempt at humour vanish. The guy has anti-charisma.
I haven't listened to kill james bond, there's only so much Alice I need and my only exposure to abigail has been a. her extremely tedious trashfuture appearances and b. trying to watch one of her philosophy tube videos, I made it 10 minutes before I was thrashing around like a dog in a bath from sheer frustration at how unbearable it was. Also "trans feminists doing a socialist analysis of the james bond franchise, check out their patreon" sounds like something you'd made up as a cruel joke about the podcast slop machine

you're entitled to your opinion and all but you described a v. funny thing

Okay uh form the sake of this analogy assume that you really like walls, and you want it finished because it will keep the Mongols away from your fields or something

that would be bad then! :ohdear:

Exactly! I like donoteat a lot, and I like to hear him talk about things, and I do not think he requires a couple of clowns to caper around while he speaks, and I feel physical pain every time they launch into another tedious abortive riff and you can hear him waiting patiently for them to stop so he can get back to it

Anyway my biggest problem with all of these non-trashfuture podcasts is that they do not feature my beautiful rowdy boy Milo

Olga is good but I'm not even slightly interested in that

Nate is the best because he followed me on twitter after I made the TF bingo card they kept joking about and I gave him poo poo for liking boring music

:yeah:

boney island whitefish is my only real exposure to riley, and he's annoying as hell. all the troop podcasts suck rear end too.

The troop podcasts are all trash and hearing them get weepy and self pitying over Afghanistan when the withdrawal started was genuinely sickening

Started listening to a few of the related podcasts recently.

Masters of Our Domain: It's okay, I think? I've never watched Seinfeld so maybe it would be better if I had. Milo is pretty good, not a big fan of Phoebe. Especially in the 2nd or 3rd episode it seemed like half the jokes she made were making fun of "woke" language, which I guess would be on brand for Jerry Seinfeld.

Listening to MoOD without actually having watched Seinfeld is absolute sicko behaviour

I was a baby when it finished it's last season. I'm not a fan of sitcoms in general, either

Then why would you listen to a podcast about it
