I miss the old show.
I've been a listener since the beginning and have had immense enjoyment from listening over the years, to the point where TGWS has been the first or close to the first podcast I'll listen to when a new episode comes out.
Since late last year/early this year, I've got several episodes I've only listened to parts of, and others that have gone completely unlistened.
I say this with peace and love, the new format is not for me. It used to be the show was a mix of several different hosts points of view, with in depth and serious discussions on all things star citizen and even some peripheral things that I found to be interesting. The show now, and I say this with peace and love, feels to me like an hour long jumble of quasi psychedelic and far reaching humor with very little I find interesting or engaging.
If you're frustrated with star citizen, don't avoid it, talk about it.. at least that's a conversation I can get engaged in.
I know Gleep's personality hasn't really changed, it's always been a bit out there and goofy.. I think the format change has just put too much on his shoulders and it ends up being far too many yuck yuck jokes in a row without any meaningful content.
I don't think Terd is to blame, he has a pleasant voice and I don't dislike hearing him talk.. but honestly I don't feel he's a strong enough presence to keep gleep in check and I'm not really hearing a ton of thought provoking discussion coming out.
I really hope you guys don't take this as a mean spirited knock as I truly am a fan and haven't at all given up on the podcast, but I just felt strongly enough to get on here and give some feedback.
