Stop this acronym-ey, all lower-case, no punctuation bullshit. If I wanted to read what a creepy robot computer would sound like before non-consensual sex, I’d hang out at a futuristic factory and try to spill coffee on the keyboards.
Special guest Derek Huss joins me and Daniel on Episode 5 of The Forty Ounce! In this episode, we viciously attack Dave Grohl’s Grammy acceptance speech and introduce Derek to three songs that fall far outside of his normal musical interest.
I should probably mention that this episode kind of goes off the rails towards the end, when Daniel makes an off-handed reference to date rape and I immediately start freaking out about it. As you will here, I was really thinking about cutting it out, but since it’s one of the more interesting moments we’ve had so far on the show, I think it needed to stay in.
This is our longest episode yet, mostly because we added a third person. I think Derek’s inclusion really livens things up, but it did make things run a little longer than I’d prefer.
I feel like I’m starting to improve as a podcast host, even if I do still mumble and speak too fast half the time.
Mike Daisey: Yeah. We have different worldviews on some of these things. I agree with you truth is really important.
Ira Glass: I know but I feel like I have the normal worldview. The normal worldview is somebody stands on stage and says ‘this happened to me,’ I think it happened to them, unless it’s clearly labeled as ‘here’s a work of fiction.’
The podcast where me and Daniel talk about pop music!
In this episode: a podcast-length review of Pitbull’s album, Planet Pit! Devoting an entire podcast to Pitbull allows us to express our enthusiasm for him, but also our concerns with the fact that he is a rapper but doesn’t really enjoy rapping.
We ran into a problem with the site we were hosting on (they wanted me to pay more money, I didn’t want to pay more money) and now we are on a new site! So, that’s why it’s been a while since the last episode. We’re back! Hooray!
