I’ve been a subscriber for the podcast from NashvilleStandup.com, but ended it today. Here is the email I sent them:
Just wanted to say sayonara. Ive downloaded some of your shows as podcasts, and have come to the conclusion that they, well, suck. I’m 6 minutes into the 15th of october show, and so far there has not been anything worth listening to, just noise, crappy sound, internal backslapping and general boredom.
Here’s a tipoftheday for ya: Editing
Here’s another: Add some more standup jokes, and add previews to the beginning so the listener at least have something to look forward to.
Oh, and another: It is cool to actually be able to hear what people say, put on headsets so you can hear whats actually recorded, the sound on that show was just awful, the first 6 mindsplittingly bad minutes of it.
There are very few standup podcasts available, so you have very few competitors, but that doesnt give you carte blanche to do bad work. The listeners deserve better.
I hope they get their act together. I love standup, but the only other podcast I’ve got in this genre is the Tom Shillue Live Comedy Podcast, only updated once every blue moon. Please, happy podcasters out there, whip out that mike and record some more standup for me. I know you can do a better job than the Nashville standup crew.
