Amateur Hour

I’m a huge fan of TechCrunch so when I saw this show mentioned on the site I was eager to listen. Unfortunately I was hugely disappointed. The hosts sounded unprepared and the banter was sluggish. Overall just painful to listen to.

As others stated, I wanted to like it..

Overall the flow and format feels amateur, it wanders and stalls in a way that loses my interest. This isn't a deal breaker for me though - I listen to and enjoy a range of podcasts with varying levels of polish. The thing that I can't get over, is the fact that you have people on who A) admittedly know nothing about or B) don't care about (and sometimes seem to resent) the content that you are covering. Not knowing about the content could be ok - as long as they're genuinely showing interest and asking thoughtful questions, so the other in-the-know host can explain and engage in an interesting conversation. Instead what we get is smug 'i just dont get it, why does anyone like this crap' hot takes that are hard to listen to. It's possible im being too harsh on y'all, but as a fan of several things that I've heard belittled on this podcast, it's tough to understand who exactly this podcast is for, what you're trying to accomplish with it, and why I would want to listen to another episode. 2 stars instead of 1 because I always tip at a restaraunt even when the service is terrible.

Enjoying Your Very Original Content

You are reviewing shows I am interested in and you all are so relatable (I'm not going to look under my bed). Keep up the great work! I listen at work and it's hard not to laugh out loud- and I mean in a good way!! Thank you!

Meh.

Audio comes in and out. I’m okay with tangents if they’re fun and intriguing - these were not. No immediate hook for me to continue their pop culture dissection.

Unfocused

I tried with this podcast since I’m a pop culture junkie but it’s just too unfocused and unprofessional. They often say false information on air or forget crucial plot points. It seems like very little preparation goes into it. I often dislike Jordan’s review style which is very “I don’t like it so I don’t have to talk about.” Not much objective criticism going on here at all. And how can you not finish a show before you review it??? Often some of the hosts only watched one episode and others have finished the show, and it’s impossible to even be on the same plain to have a conversation about it.

Bad Volume

I did enjoy the content. Male hosts were positive and upbeat, but the female tends to be negative about every show reviewed.Volume is off on every episode. Some hosts aren’t close to the mic, some are basically screaming. Makes the levels really jarring if you are listening to it with headphones or in your car.

Really bad

This was really boring. One of the hosts wasn’t even close to the mic. This show sounded like they were doing something else while taking about a show, like when you engage in small talk about a TV show. One of the hosts didn’t even watch the show. They weren’t sure whether to give spoilers or not (they did). And spent like the whole show focused in random things trying to understand the plot. So if they that are supposed to be the experts are clueless about the show, why bother making a podcast. This episode quickly helped me decide to unsubscribe as there is no way it would get any better.

Wanted it to be good...

Couldn’t get through one episode (Fyre). Presenters rambled constantly going on obscure tangents. Poorly structured and not worth an hour IMHO, many other better curated and produced podcasts. Felt like nothing of substance.

Anthony Ha tries to hard.

He’s just not that funny, but forces bad humor in your face.
