Ep. 761: Where we're jerking your chain for weeks
Steve "The Gut Man" Guttenberg's age remains a mystery in today's 404 Podcast preshow, but he's definitely younger than Wilson, who will celebrate his 39th birthday this year. Steve heads up the Audiophiliac blog on CNET and today he's making sure that younger generations, specifically teenagers, know the importance of actually listening to music, instead of just letting it play in the background of a million other digital activities.
Getting back to techy talking points, Steve is curious about the location all the audiophilies in New York under 30 years old. According to him, an audiophile is anyone who gives a darn about the way music sounds beyond a simple MP3 player and stock pair of headphones.
Steve tells us that most of the young audiophiles he meets care a lot about headphones and mobile audio instead of hi-fi audio speakers in the home, which may be a symptom of the movement toward the way people "use" media, which moves us into another discussion about another Audiophiliac blog, this one titled "Will you still watch TV at home in 10 years?"
Also be sure to check out the second half of the show where we all express our hatred for "the man," and don't forget that there's no show on Monday for President's Day. We'll be back on Tuesday; have a great weekend everyone!
