I don’t like leaving negative reviews. I genuinely think this could be a good podcast, but I usually end up turning it off about halfway into the episode. Chris is a good host with some insightful commentary, and he’s genuinely fun to listen to. Aaron Virola is the cringiest podcaster I’ve ever listened to. I’m not exaggerating. Not only is he awkward but he has terrible, rambling opinions that Chris usually shuts down with one sentence. Maybe if he read the topics beforehand and tried to make concise, logical commentary it wouldn’t be so bad. In the meantime, I’ll keep trying to listen.
A refreshing podcast
In this time of polarization and hyperbole, this podcast stands out. Thoughtful, creative, and passionate, yet open-minded.
NOT a Solo disposable cup teardown review
I was doing research for an upcoming party I was thinking about throwing if I ever got friends and naturally I was trying to find the greatest and best disposable cup. I listened to a 4 hour podcast on Dixie cups and I thought in order to be diligent I should give a discussion of Solo cups “equal time.”
Instead I heard these two fellows talking about some movie called Star War. I’ve never seen any of the movies except the one where Spock comes back from the dead in a bathrobe and the old guy from Back to the Future is the bad guy and he’s dressed like some kind of dinosaur man.
Anyhow, they made another star war movie and this one is about cups and some guy named Lando. I have a neighbor named Lando, but he’s Lithuanian not a person of the brown persuasion like Danny Glover. I bet he’d like this movie cause he’s always drinking out of Solo cups.
They didn’t change my mind at all about cups but I like the main guy’s accent so 5 stars. Now to plan that party.
