    Short Stuff: Laugh Tracks

    Short Stuff: Laugh Tracks

    Laugh tracks have been around since the early 1950s and it’s all thanks to one (reviled) sound engineer who invented them. But as much as people like to hate laugh tracks most shows wouldn’t be at all funny without them.

MERTX ,

Very interesting.....

Who knew?? I found these podcasts to be very interesting and informative. It's refreshing to know that there are people out there who care enough to inform us of interesting facts that fuel our brains rather than the typical trash that floods us daily. Does anybody really care which celebrity went into rehab this week? This makes for much more interesting conversation around the "water cooler". Not to mention that it makes you sound smart :) Keep up the good work!

Political bias

I used to be an avid listener and want to continue but the political jabs are too much. They portray open mindedness but it seems only if it’s related to the latest woke trend. It’s easy too lump people together and then call them radical because of that analogous grouping. Rise above it gentlemen you can support social causes without dismissing all viewpoints that align with conservative values.
