Agree. One of the best. Hearing the stories from the days when Sam and Rex were calling on 3AW were pissers.Really enjoyed Steve price. Never knew about his radio career. Rather successful man.
Rex tries too hard to be funny these days. I did like him back in the dayAgree. One of the best. Hearing the stories from the days when Sam and Rex were calling on 3AW were pissers.
On the Rex episodes last week though, I couldn't get through them. I just find him an annoying w***er these days.
do not disagree with rex trying too hard. but the schtick worked in the 90s where he could go off tangent in a heartbeat at the footy, and it provided lulz.Rex tries too hard to be funny these days. I did like him back in the day
The podcast was all over the place this week First 5 mins was hilarious and i cant believe how well Sam took what Don did to him! Michael Tuck was ok.
The problem with Rex is he kept telling the same couple of jokes over and over.do not disagree with rex trying too hard. but the schtick worked in the 90s where he could go off tangent in a heartbeat at the footy, and it provided lulz.
i think the humour from this podcast was sam, don and rods silence at times. you could tell they were mouth agape.
Far better than the recent run of guests, who have been poor.Michael Tuck was ok.
Great post. When they go off track its genuine and not staged. The awkwardness, "are we actually on?", silliness that follows is lulz. And it works.I don't care for the content itself or the political/social views expressed. I like the podcast because it is such an odd/strange media product due to the personalities involved. Apart from Don's inability to speak into the microphone, it is a generally slick production - but unlike 99% of other podcasts that have a set running sheet and play it safe - this podcast as the potential to run completely off the rails every week (and often does). This is the way that Sam used to run the footy show - and I'd say it only works because Don is such an offbeat unit. I also find Don to generally be a decent interviewer for most guests they have on.
And then Sam having to remind him to give context that it is from the Xmas gift and Don getting annoyedThe best part about Don's weird facts is that he just starts asking them out of nowhere. Like they might be in the middle of a conversation about the pandemic and then Don will say something like What is the average penis size.
