SO GOOD

So happy I came across this podcast. It’s now in my top 5 and I’m only a few episodes in. So excited to have a back log of episodes to binge. If you want a lighthearted podcast with humour and interesting tech stuff, you’ll love this! (Even if you’re not a techy person!)

Used to be good

Was my favourite podcast up until about halfway through 2019. After that, very few good episodes, most just ok, some actually bad. I previously rated it 5 stars, this brings it down to 3 as I haven't unsubscribed (yet).

However they have added Jason Manzoukas. He is an actor I really don't like, all the characters he plays on TV are intensely disgusting and unpleasant and annoying and cringe inducing. I am sure he is a nice guy in real life but that feeling of disgust from his characters carries over to when listening to his voice as it is very distinctive. I listened to the episode The Mould And The Beautiful just now and you could take his description of the mould bucket picture activating his gag reflex and just replace "mould bucket picture" with "Manzoukas' voice" and that will be close to what it does to me!! Another thing that's annoying is that he seems to derail conversations into complete uninteresting inanity so that less percentage of the episode is actually either interesting or funny. Something I liked about Reply All in the past was that they kept a conversational style and yet the editing and/or speaking notes were so well crafted that even though it was a conversation, everything was interesting and relevant (or genuinely funny). Mamzoukas' presence devolves it into being similar to other conversational podcasts that don't spend much time getting to any sort of point and need better editing. Andsomething else is, his voice is very screechy, it sort of goes up and down in volume with harsh edges to it so it is not so pleasant to listen to. Very unlike Alex and PJs voices which are warm and smooth.

Since they're only going to replay old episodes for a while now I think I'll unsubscribe, then if I get reminded about the show in the future I can listen to lots of episodes at once and skip the Manzoukas ones. Then also, if the show continues to mainly suck, i won't mind hearing a few bad episodes as there will be some good ones built up too. Instead of having to wait two weeks then be disappointed and have to wait another two weeks in the hope the next one is better.

A show for all types of weather...

... actual and metaphorical.

Over the past few decades, we learned to take its presence for granted, and we think we know all we need to about the Internet based on our Facebook-Google bubble.

Reply All gives a glimpse into the massive and whacky world of the Internet - a world many of us may not pay attention to. Because behind the screen there are people.

Hosts Alex and PJ are incredibly likeable and their friendship makes this already-awesome show all the more enjoyable!

After listening to some recent episodes, I decided to go back to episode #1 and work through the catalogue chronologically. So far, I’m at episode #42 and it has yet to disappoint!
