Customer Reviews

Unfocused, uninteresting and unlistenable

This is *very* different from The Talk Show of the past, which always had Dan Benjamin serving to keep the podcast focused.

People didn't tune in to just listen to John Gruber ramble about a million unrelated topics, they tuned in to listen to a podcast that had at least some semblance of order. The Talk Show with Dan Benjamin was already one of the less-focused podcasts on 5by5, where Dan would prepare a list of topics and show notes beforehand, and Gruber just showed up on a bad connection and mumbled his comments to some of the topics while clearing his throat or snorting. Dan Benjamin was half of The Talk Show since its inception, and the new show has an entirely different dynamic.

This new show is John Gruber unhinged, John Gruber talking to himself, jumping from unrelated topic to topic; it is unfocused to the hilt, and embarrassing to listen to.

Excellent premiere

@gruber is my favorite writer and now on a brand new network. He actually sounds happier and certainly more animated. I am looking forward to more and will certainly check out the others shows on MuleRadio.

Not as good as the 5by5 version.

If the new guy was better than Dan @5by5, I'd be okay with Gruber's move. But the new guy is even less (!?) focused/on-task, and I DARE you to try and count the number if times he says "Yeah. Right."
