I try to ease tension, and make everyone feel good, however I must express that yesterday's episode 923 was far inferior to 922.
It's a personal pref sure, but having Tom, Jason, and Cooley was much more fluid and entertaining to me. I still wince a little at Nat's audio levels on transitions, and still feel she has a condescending attitude towards people and ideas that don't stroke her interests, so it was a nice little break.
Look people, this show is and should be a quality program, It may not be the hosts fault, but when Nat's voice booms over my radio speakers, making me reach for the knob, it gets annoying. Then in yesterday's episode Nat made some sort of under the breath political comment to Tom, that was inaudible without rewinding and turning up. Jason, I know there's not much you can do with an uncompressed signal from an unseen microphone.
Can't we bring her in on a separate channel and add some compression/limiting in the chain? My ears will thank you.
Lastly, Cooley was skyped in, not in the studio, and I rarely noticed the lack of chemistry. Don't go all crazy on replies that Cooley is a ham, a radio guy, he better trained, etc. If that's your initial reaction it proves my point. The show works best with someone who has both knowledge and personality to chat alongside Tom.
This shows in the cast differences of 923, and 922.
I don't want to beat a dead horse, or even worse beat a living horse, because beating horses, dead or alive, is WRONG! So, let's keep up the good work, I listened to each 922 and 923 and got good relevant information out of each, I just enjoyed 922 more.
Lastly, I think the show would benefit from live callers. We all watch the show being recorded, and in situations like the great e-mail flood of HDMI - DVI connector Well-actuallies, someone could have just called in, been screened, and 2 secs later, been done. I like the voicemail but guys, it's kinda backwards. We in the chat can do this, but look at every broadcast radio show, they all take live callers.
I'll even be the call screener.
Hi this is Mark the Demigod
Hi Mark what's on your mind?
I want to ask Natali out on a date
Get in line dude :::click:::
Hi this is John Lenientland calling in with a well actualy to the hdmi and dvi connection.
well they are the same thing, just no audio,
Sure, we'll get you on, please hold.
Tom: We have a call from John Lenientland, he's calling you out Cooley,
Cooley, bring him on
John, Hey guys its the same blah blee blue blah,
Cooley, I just don't like adapters, someone tell this call screener that I hate adapters and never send me an adapter call ever again.
Anyway, I digress, what episode did you think was better? Or constructively please, what was good and bad about each episode. Please write your answers in the form of an essay.
