Mailbag: Why our RSS feeds are broken

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hey everyone, I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag. The show where we take your feedback about all the stuff we do here at CNET. Now, we got a lot of similar emails this week. I think that Dale [presumed spelling] some guy from New Zealand put it best. "What the hell is going on? I subscribe through itunes to a bunch of your shows, and today, they started downloading the old episodes of other shows. I was stoked to see what I thought was a bunch of new episodes, only to find a hoard of double ups and shows I didn't even know about." Yeah, sorry about that Dale. It seems like some of our podcasts are showing up in some feeds of some other podcast. I can tell you that we're not doing it on purpose. We're tracking it and it seems like it might only be a problem in Google Reader. So if you run into this, can you let me know if that's what you're using? And it will kind of help us narrow it down. And if you work at Google, can you fix it? I heard you guys are pretty smart over there. Moving right along, Jack asked us. "I've always wondered where does CNET get all of the awesome introduction music that you hear at the beginning of each show on CNETTV? It's kind of catchy." Well, Jack, our music including like the super cool Buzz Out Loud theme is composed by our own in-house music dude Chris Pavey, seen here in his natural environment. ^M00:01:11 [ Guitar music ] ^M00:01:23 >> Chris Pavey comes from England and so does Horacio [presumed spelling] who had some questions about last week's show. "What's up with your new background for the mailbag? I hope it has something to do with the new 16:9 ration or the move to HD. I hope. I mean, come on now. Were you trying to evoke the shady 24 hour 'newstand' porno shop look or what?" Ouch! Porno stand -- Yeah. We were using that backdrop so we wouldn't have to miss with our graphics in 16:9 and we'll never use it again. Also, to those of you who asked -- yes, I was sick last week. Thanks to the one guy who thought I sounded sexy and not croaky. My producer Sarah wouldn't let me fill in with cough drops in my mouth -- Ah, mean! Also an update on the much requested photography podcast I've spoken with Lori Grunin and Phil Ryan, our photography editors and they totally dig the idea and they're working on the podcast right now. And finally, a little hatermail to brighten up the day. "Dear Mrs. Wood, I was watching some episodes of the mailbag, when I happened to notice something odd. You seem to enjoy wearing a sweater over an untucked long-sleeve button up shirt. And what's up with that one time when you were talking with Kent German, where it is clear as an azure sky of deepest summer that you roll your jean legs up. Are you trying to bring back the preschool look or what? Does your mommy still dress you and write happy notes that she packs into your pink Care Bear lunchbox? It's RIDICULOUS! You kiddin' me? Play offs? Thank you for your time, Balki B. from the island of Mypos." Okay, Balki, I can only assume that you're suggesting that I dress eighties style without lame eighties reference, but the sweater over button up is totally back -- Hello!? And I wouldn't say I rolled my jeans. It was really more of a cuff. I'll grant you, it's the last season, but c'mon. It's not Care Bear lunchbox level. What does play offs even mean? And I can't believe I'm dignifying all these with a response except for that -- that's what the show is all about. So, on that note, that's it for this week's edition of the CNET Mailbag. Keep the feedback comin'. Mailbag@CNET.com or send me a postcard 235 Second Street, San Francisco, CA 94105. I'll see you next time. ^M00:03:21 [ Music ] ^M00:03:24 >> All right. >> I asked for the funny finger, can we do that again? >> We should do a Montaggio [presumed spelling] funny finger. ^M00:03:31 [ Inaudible female voice ] ^M00:03:33 >> I know. The baby likes it. Okay.
