Podcast industry news delivered with a dash of dry wit
Three minutes of podcast industry news made entertaining. James is witty, insightful, and on top of all the latest news.
Edited to add: After some public grousing about the feedback below, the show has dropped most of the background music and seems to have adjusted the pacing a bit to get beyond a snarky hammering headline array and into some actual info (and why not? they are patiently generating plenty of important industry info at podnews, so they surely can identify interesting and useful info to include here). They may have even started to explore further than what seemed previously to be their own friends and enemies list for content. Listening is a much better time now. Changed from 2 to 3 stars. …
The super tight pacing, sarcastic delivery, and overly loud tense & shrill music make this show really unpleasant.
