Boring scripts read

Tom and Scott are so obviously reading scripts. If not it sure sounds like it. I thought this would be more like StuffYouShouldKnow but with less budget. It's nothing even remotly as good. SYSK might have a script too but it sounds like just two friends explaining stuff. SYSK's producer Jeri is also probably much better than CGC's.

Background music is the worst. Too loud and for too long. Always having some music running which is mostly when the interviewed person is talking is terrible.

Used to be a favorite…

I used to love this show back when it was weekly with guests. Then they got rid of the guests and added in the TV pilot and movie episodes. I maybe listened to one in four of each of those. Now the “Chronicles” iteration is worse. I’m a big fan of Tom and Scott. I’ve listened to both of them almost daily for years. They hosted some of my earliest podcasts (Buzz Out Loud, ELR, The Instance), but this show is basically just them reading a scripted Wikipedia article now. It takes all the fun banter out of it. I’ve moved on to Geek Show to scratch my weekly geek news and discussion. I only listen to Current Geek Chronicles if I’ve completely caught up on all my other podcasts, and even then, I usually switch to music or an audiobook.
