You’ll love it- or you won’t.
Jared Polin of Fro Knows Photo fame has a podcast entitled RawTalk. Released every Friday, this podcast is a bit like Seinfeld- it’s not really about anything in particular. Don’t download this expecting photography talk- sure, it may come up- but this is The Jared Show.
With cohost Stephen Eckert, the pair remind one of Howard Stern (Jared) and Robin Quivers (Stephen)- a duo entering an unscripted hour of chat, debate, jokes, and whatever else enters their minds. Jared leads the conversations with Stephen responding to his ideas, baiting him into rants, calming him when he’s in the midst a rant, and providing an audience extension for Jared.
So what do we know about these two guys?
Jared owns the FroKnowsPhoto/Rawtalk business and shares the income with Stephen in a 87.8% to 12.2 % splint.
Jared went to France recently; Stephen missed episode 2.
Jared loves cameras and has favored Nikon, then Sony, and presently Canon. He’s mad at Fuji. And he hates Pentax; Stephen’s going on maternity leave soon.
Jared owns 5 buildings; Steven has a lawnmower.
Jared has a 161” screen at his house to watch movies; Steven’s lawnmower is a really nice one.
Steven (12.2%) creates Lightroom presets and Jared (87.8%) names them.
Jared has a Tesla because it’s the best of the best with honors, sir. I suspect that Stephen drives his lawnmower around.
And what’s a podcast like: Here’s a brief list of episode 60’s topics:
You should tip hookers
Jared started a new school in 3rd grade and learned cursive
Jared got a 950 on his SATs
Mr Beastburger spent $3M on a video
Jared likes random names
There’s a camera giveaway coming soon
This week’s Ranty McRanterson: Jared thinks the new Mission Impossible movie is mindless dribble
Cruise, Schwarzenegger, and Ford are really old to be in action movies
Soft pretzels are the only reason to go to a baseball card show
Jared had eye surgery in 1986 for his 20/80 vision
YouGuysMedia was his first business venture
His work appeared in Fuzz magazine; he’s written 3 poems
“If you turn a fan into a friend you’ll have a customer for life”
If it sounds random, you understand RawTalk. It really is the Jared Polin Show, and you’ll love it or you won’t.
Personally, it’s my favorite part of Fridays and I never miss an episode.
Give it a shot.
I love the no holds barred conversation about a field I'm invested in. Sometimes it's raunchy, sometimes it's loud, and sometimes it's just straight forward facts and discussion. Jared and Steven do not disappoint.
The Second-Hand Shop Of Podcasts
Each episode is like shopping at a second-hand store. You have to skip through a lot of useless crap before you get to the actual posted topic. Even then, they don’t always stay on topic long before drifting off to more useless ramblings and rants and label it as “RAW Talk”, (cue eye roll). And this is all after the annoying Voicemail intro. Overall the show’s not terrible but not near as good as I was hoping. They do have some interesting/funny moments, but it’s definitely in the “take it or leave it” category for me.
