Less them, more us.

I love the more technical approach, but it’s often hard to follow with constant digression. The team is so intent on being cute and smart, I find myself just cringing between the real content and the posturing. I just wish they would spend that time with more background on the actual discussion topics. There is no shortage of podcasts ranting about movies, but intelligent talk about paleontology today, which has become so diverse and interesting, is not that common. I don’t mind argument, even beer influenced, if it’s on topic. The negative generalizations don’t help us a ton either. Point out problems, by all means. But less Fox News please. I’d love hear more about what excites the cast, less ranting about their frustrations. There are wonderful moments in the podcast, but the price to hear them can be high at times. Now, I’m sure there are fans who love it as is, but come on guys, you don’t have to impress us to this degree. Have fun, but don’t forget many listeners are really tuning in to learn more about current Paleontology, not how to use the F-word. We all know how to do that. :)

Good fun for boring tasks

I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent listening to this podcast. I have finished every episode twice and am going on a third time around. Very funny hosts (especially after a few drinks) and an awesome subject to podcast on. Even if you don’t know anything they explain everything (as good as drunk scientists can). Give it a shot.

Palaeo on with it

Can’t listen to this. The badinage is not as entertaining as real information would be, and it goes on for way too long.
