    Spencer Hall has a new podcast out where he tells stories about sports cheaters and it is surprising to hear him on a podcast with production values

    Anyway, the first episode is here: https://www.sbnation.com/a/it-seemed-smart-podcast/the-great-albert-belle-bat-caper

    The series is called “It seemed smart at the time”

    No sports knowledge required to enjoy

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    The real take away here is, as always, Brad fucking sucks at picking emails.

    There is a specific part in the story where I just lost it.
    When he mentions that the bat being swapped out was signed by another player. And then Spencer mentions his personal surprise that the plan didn’t involve using a fucking sharpie to cross out the old player’s name with the one of the guy whose bat they were trying to replace.

    This looks like it either is a phone game someone accidentally released on consoles or fell out of a time warp from the PS1/N64 era

    it may say something about my untrusting nature, but I am convinced the Rockstar email Brad read in the middle of the bombcast did not come organically from an actual employee, but from the Rockstar's marketing team trying to have their positive spin read on a podcast as a genuine inside opinion on a deeply influntial platform in the "gaming community" as Giant Bomb

    I think it’s perfect likely that it came from a real employee. Just a younger one who is swept up in the zeitgeist of the moment and has fully swallowed the party line about the importance and significance of the videogame they are making.

    At the very least it read like it came from someone who had 100% bought in to tech-bro lingo (stuff like talking about "the space").
    They straight copped to emailing the Beastcast as well, hopefully Abby and Alex tear into it.

    Is anybody listening to the current season of Serial?

    If I liked season one and struggled to get through season two and grew up in Cleveland, do you think it would hold my interest?

    Season 3 is magnitudes better than both of them combined and is dare I say Actually Important Listening to get a grasp on how the justice system actually handles everyday people

    Why the hell didn't the east coast do the quick look on that game? Vinny has played both games within the past few years and would have been the better choice IMO.

    This Totally Reprise starts the arc about Sam trying to kill a mime, I don't know why it's like this but it's a good episode! (of Totally Reprise not of Totally Spies)
    Oh, the podcast isn't called Totally Spie's?
    now the beginning of this one's fucked up, so I won't really be able to hear it for a minute
    "You eat gushers you turn into fruit"
    "If you eat the sour candy, you will fucking die"
    "But I figured out the puzzle, and you didn't, and that makes me better than you."
    "Weird to name your album after the worst song on it!" "Daring, move, I've seen it before, usually doesn't end well."
    "There's a lot of songs about Vriska secretly."
    "Monsterfucking is the new vaping." yeah you can probably vape Venom
    "Ava's been here for every tentacle episode guys, like come on. Keep up."
    "What exactly was his crime, what did he do?" "He's a mime."
    "Do you think Sam has ever slept?"
    "It does have the vagina strap! Pris is looking at me just in utter shock and disbelief, and I can't blame her."
    "I was really worried we were gonna get a bad guy that like, was super pale because any time they would like, get a tan and then squirt melanin out of their skin or something." hey why
    "I can't wait until it shows up in our fucking RPG game." "I can't wait until we fight Jersey Shore." damn fuckin nailed that one
    "You know what, I gotta say, one thing about limousines? I hate their wheels, they fuckin' suck. Get rid of them."
    "The top result is a Popular Science article titled, 'Squid Teeth Could One Day Help Repair Your Ripped Clothing.'" "Oh. Yeah, that's called a needle."
    "God, I could use a new sun, I fucking hate our old sun." "It's so disrespectful." this winter in hieron shit
    "You really want those vagina straps to really pop."
    "This show is a crime." "Totally Spies and Totally Reprise, both crimes. Illegal."
    "And then they turn around, and now it's racist."
    "I kinda gave up midway through that joke."
    "Let's get granular. Let's get in there, let's really start measuring these squids."
    good fucking foley work on this squid measuring kit
    "It needs more foley work." "No it doesn't!"
    "It's about six and a half squids."
    "It's really handy that they could find the one jet ski."
    "Ashley" "Yeah" "What are you doin" "I don't know! Today just feels like a weird day."
    "Hey, you ever think about how there's just a movie called Octopussy?" I don't understand how that happened!
    you gotta get the honey on chicken nuggets that's the good shit
    how did Ava even end up at these food combinations
    "There's a second coward, his wife, the coward."
    miss spirit fingers
    "aw, Dad City" no

    Canadaland's Thunder Bay podcast is doing this for me right now, also

    The first episode sets the stage of "guess what, Canada and Thunder Bay specifically are still horrific towards indigenous peoples"

    The second one cold opens with audio from a publically released video of a lawyer who is the richest man in Thunder Bay taking his clothes off, twirling around to show a collection of bruises inflicted on him by his "blackmailers", gesturing drunkenly at the Mayor of Thunder Bay and his wife who are for some reason present, proposing to his girlfriend and *maybe* his dog, and showing off his entire collection of clowns

    And somehow manages to get weirder from there

    I guess RDR2 is out now. Well, RIP videogame media and podcast for me for the next month or so.

    (I kid, I'm sure it's going to dominate conversation for a bit though, and I'm pumped people are excited for it. My personal interest is essentially zero though.)

  • THESPOOKYTHESPOOKY papa! Registered User regular
    In spite of the miasma hanging over RDR2's production, which is absolutely there for good reason

    It's difficult for me to banish the bitterness at not being able to partake in the launch of a game that is so Extremely My Shit at a face value. I'm not super happy that this is where I'm at, but for every gross press release and harrowing story of developer crunch at R*, I cannot stop the part of my brain that's screaming WESTERN. VIDEOGAAAAME

    It sucks and I hate it
