It is a podcast!
Listened to check and can confirm it is a podcast. Au contraire, it’s not just a podcast, it’s a great podcast! Don’t let’s start arguing, I’m impressed. James K. Polk would even enjoy this. Hot dog! I like fun and this is the greatest. Everything right is wrong again so hop on your dirt bike and give it a listen. It’s going to be as popular as experimental film in Istanbul. What a gift even though it’s not my birthday.
Cast your pod to the wind.
It started so great
Ok so i've been a huge TMBG fan for years, and was excited to see this Podcast show up on Reddit! My first minor critique would be the 45-second 'Fingertips' type montage intro... 15 seconds, ok... But 45 is a stretch.
What really killed it for me started with the third, and what I can't stand is the open mockery of the various covers found on YouTube. Now, I understand them playing their own band's cover, neat. But their new meta is playing and openly critiquing other artist's covers - to what end? If the intention of this podcast is to discuss a song, why would you spend 8-10 minutes commenting "I don't think that's the right note" or "her ukulele is out of tune"?
Honestly If you are looking for a pure, deep dive into each song, you'll need to wade through a lot of speculation and excessive soundbites. Sorry Greg, I really wanted to like this.
