This guy is an unqualified idiot.

Firstly: he's clearly a moron who can't tell the difference between your average conversational nonfiction podcast and a dramatic performance.

Audio books, This American Life, and similar productions are dramatic performances. Timing are as much an element of what contributes to the quality of these as the content itself. You probably shouldn't ignore that.

But podcasts like "This American Life" are the vanishingly small minority of podcasts. Most of them are just "two dudes talking". Probably conversationally, probably not professionally produced. Even the ones that are (Radiolab, etc) are still just a couple dudes having a conversation. Listen to them however you damn well please, because nothing will be lost if you fuck up the timing. Because there is no timing.

This is a guy who is entirely disconnected from reality.
I love audio. And I want you to love audio, too. But I’m not sure you can, because of this habit you’ve got. I know you’re busy, and you have a lot on your plate, and there are so many shows to...

You know what the best part about this story is? There's no hero. Nobody was right, everybody was fucking wrong. I'm pretty sure this is the new normal.
The unique 21st-century misery of the online shaming victim.

So, when someone says "I'm gluten sensitive" and hasn't been diagnosed with an allergy or celiacs, there's a really good chance you can just pretend they really said "I'm an idiot, don't listen to anything I say."
Thirty percent of Americans say they’re trying to reduce or eliminate gluten in their diets. But only about 1 percent of the population has an autoimmune response to gluten. Somewhere in that gap, ...

I'm listening to a 20+ minute tirade over the fact that the coconut macaroons in the cafe have wheat in them.

I just wanted to share my pain.

Or, just buy a DS4? They work flawlessly with OS X (I use one with OpenEmu). I've heard they work fairly well with windows as well. They're just great controllers.

Ever time I come back to Guster's Lost and Gone Forever, I remember what an unequivocally wonderful album it was.

Color schemes are like porn. I know when I see some if I like it or not, but I'm pretty sure if I tried to make my own it'd just make people cry.

You know those "if you were stranded on a desert island and could only take X [thing] with you" questions?

I only have one answer to ALL of those questions: Coffee.

I don't care if you asked me about movies, fuck movies, I'm taking a coffee plant.

You would probably have the opportunity to get more sleep on a desert island.

This weekend, a man wearing a skull mask posted a video on YouTube outlining his plans to murder me. I know his real name. I documented it and sent it to law enforcement, praying something is finally done. I have received these death threats and 43 others in the last five months.  This experience

Version gets added to my lists of: places I never want to go, and places deserving of unrepentant insults. On the latter, it's interestingly ahead of Mississippi, which has some of the best vaccination rates in the nation.

There's a whole essay here on names, privacy, freedom, and the modern internet. I'm not going to write it.
Facebook is shutting down Natives’ accounts until they submit ID proving that they’re using their real names.

If this headache were any larger, it'd have it's own congressional district and have taken bribes from several major corporations.
