Can you please stop cursing do much and making dirty jokes...I'm youngish and a lot of your listeners are also? Also I love this cast PLEASE ANOTHER STARLINE Q AND A 😂😂😂
It’s Sonic and comic goodness.
My first dedicated podcast to listen to and I’ve got years to catch up on still. I’m happy for that though, it’s nice to hear Ian and Kyle joke together and they talk about what I like, be it the retired pop culture subject episodes or the continued Q&A-dominated romps. Ian Flynn being best-known for his work on Sonic comic material and thus fans have lots that they would ask him surrounding Sonic spinoff media or the Sonic at large. He can’t divulge cancelled Archie material or claim to know enough to speak for Sega in their practices but what he does give well scratches the itch a Sonic fan is bound to feel. -and you feel knows his stuff thoroughly and presents his ideas reasonably to know this is very much the guy to trust with an adaptation or just to be friendly in humoring your questions.
Also they’ve got a rad opening theme.
Very Informative, Room for Improvement
I have been a fan of Ian Flynn’s work with the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man franchises since I was in middle school, and was elated to hear about this podcast, where he delves more into the lore of the books or behind-the scenes of the comic industry. His answers to fan questions are always respectful, brief, and detailed (as far as the license holders allow him to go, anyway). The show is definitely worth a listen if you are an avid follower of Flynn’s writing.
However, despite how informative the show is, there is a caveat that makes the BumbleKast a little frustrating to listen to sometimes. Although Kyle is a great cohost, I get a little irritated with his audio editing. The audio is never normalized, so if you are listening to an episode in the car (which I do because I drive a lot for my job), you will be constantly turning the volume up and down to understand what they are saying or to keep your ears from imploding. For example, sometimes Ian will ironically yell or raise his voice for emphasis, which is always louder than the rest of the program and will BURST YOUR EARDRUMS through car speakers. Newer episodes are getting better about this though.
As far as content, this podcast is great. The editing, however, could use some more tweaking per episode, especially in normalizing the audio.
