It was a pleasure to be on the podcast, thanks for having James on!

Enjoyed listening to James on the podcast and the Kickstarter sounds interesting! My only complaint is this is the third week of Peter and his loud annoying hyena cackle fake laugh that he's been doing for the past three episodes. It's really hard to listen to when he does that, it's not his real laugh that I've listened to over the years.

At least this week's was only once and short versus the previous two weeks where he'd go on and on and on. I ended up turning the damn thing down because and missed a lot of what Russ was trying to say during the previous two episodes. It was highly annoying and frustrating to listen to since his genuine was has been nothing like that.

I mean we get it and most of us agree that the dumpster fire that is the TSR road show is equal parts entertaining, unacceptable and really frustrating to witness. It doesn't need a loud hyena cackle fake laugh though. It doesn't make for good audio podcast, seriously. Hopefully my feedback/criticism is taken with the spirit I intend it.

I can’t think of any charitable spirit that an essay about somebody’s ‘loud annoying hyena cackle fake laugh’ could be taken.

Wow, dude.

Have you listened to the podcast ever? It's obvious that he's putting on this fake laugh that he has never done before. It was for effect and it was highly annoying. Hard on the ears, he'd do it much louder than their normal volume voice work. It is bad audio flat out.

I guess I should just stop listening/subscribing without comment as to why. Anymore that's truly just the easier path to choose.

I listen to the podcast every week. Peter was not putting on a fake hyena laugh for effect. Why would he? It was just Peter finding the TSR fiasco extremely absurd and funny. Uncontrolled laughter, not deliberate fake laughter.

And strange reason to stop listening, even if you don't like Peter's laugh. It was a very small part of the segment.

And Peter, I enjoy your obvious delight when you laugh.
 


Abstruse

Seconded. After editing over 150 episodes with Morrus and Peter to the point I can read words in the waveform of the audio files, I can tell fake from real laughter.
