  • An imitation of its past self

    Mistaking snark for wit, the podcast has lost its footing. The hosts now senselessly repeat the things that made the show famous, like totems designed to desperately build its former identity into a “Brand”. They seem to believe that negativity as a default is cool and enthusiasm ironically amped to 11 is engaging. Bleeding after Dieter left, once Nilay is gone it will be dead.

  • Too much forced laughter

    Would be better if they stopped trying to be comedians - it gets tiresome so I end up skipping whole sections (show doesn’t even have chapters - which you’d think a tech podcast would be aware of and implement ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

  • Can’t take it anymore.

    Used to love this show until it turned into a terrible comedy pun fest.
