Aunty' lobotomy

If you liked the kind of undergraduate posturing seen in SBS's The Feed, then this might be the very podcast for you!

Others might find it's this show's relentless camp enthusiasm for the trivial that quickly becomes banal and wearying.

And for those of us who still remember Triple J's smart radical beginnings, this a sad outcome of decades of dumbing down poor Aunty, until even RN is starting to look vacuous.

Banal, a bit like pop culture itself

How is a show about “pop culture” a good use of ABC resources when commercial media already provides endless vapid commentary on itself?

The presenters come across as over-caffeinated culture studies students who missed the lectures on Gramsci and hegemony and have mistakenly come to believe that tweeting about tv dating shows can be construed as intellectual critique. The banality of the analysis is surpassed only by the hyperactive self regard of the presenters whose earnest flattery of each other risks nervous exhaustion for them and their audience.

One of my favourite shows

I am a serious RN listener, I like politics, analysis, philosophy and all that. This show’s three intelligent, witty & interested presenters are also light and chatty and explore fascinating subjects without ever being irritating or fatuous. Recommend!
