    I can entirely understand Geoff and Burnie starting a bag of snacks or starting doing something and just not being able to stop until the bottom of the bag or I'm not able to physically do it any more... I've learned to control it a little at times but it is very difficult, especially with subconscious things like snacking...

    Woah now, I'm 24 and I've started a career in Web and Graphic design. Thank you very much Burnie. You're right though. A lot of people my age haven't started their careers.

    Just felt like commenting on a part that resonated with me a lot: when Geoff said that he's really quiet because he knows he's gonna be talking a lot for six hours every day. I work at a hotel front desk, and although I work at night, I totally understand what he means. When you talk for a living, it's really nice to spend your free time in relative quiet and away from public.

    i dont know if its always been there, but this is the first time ive seen it. the video "noise" (like high ISO kind of noise) was pulsing like every second. its like the flashing light on the camera was causing extra noise. idk, once i noticed it i couldnt not see it.

    I get the "good movie" versus "good Star Wars movie".  Think of it this way.  World War Z is a good movie that most people who hate it, hate it because it's called World War Z.  They are book fans who had expectations of what a World War Z movie would be.  If they had called it something else like "Dead Outbreak" or whatever, most people would have had no issue and been able to enjoy it.  I'm older than Jack and I LIKE the prequels because they aren't retreads of the original trilogy.  I don't like TFA (and it gets worse each time I see it) because it is such a cut-and-paste job with no new ideas but I get why people who are nostalgic for the original trilogy would like it.  TFA is the ultimate fan film.  I just expected more (and different) after so much was made about "We got Kasdan who was the REAL genius behind TESB".

    I used to listen to the podcasts all the time.  Listen.  Way before video existed for them.  I made a point to watch this specifically because it limited the number of people on it and had focused conversation.  I would love for this to be a little more common.  If there are enough people watching that is.

    Burnie, regarding At Midnight: "Everything was okay though right?"

    Ellie: "Yeah, except for the clap....."

    I laughed so hard at this before I realised it wasn't a joke. in the UK " The clap" is a slang term for Chlamydia and it totally caught me off guard! laughing

      I don't think it's a UK thing specifically. I feel like I've heard that from American content in the past.

    Burnie says he sometimes tells stories twice the exact same way, then inmediately tells a story he's told before the exact same way. That might be the funniest part of this entire episode.

    What is the best way to show I appreciate your videos? It is just me viewing them, or should I make a comment on the ones I specifically like? Sometimes I feel like I'm no doing enough to show you that I enjoy your content.

    ~13:00 - I think the hardest part of my job is forcing myself to think like those people who are out to break the rules. It really makes me lose all faith in society when I put up all kinds of safeguards against the most unscrupulous stuff only to find that someone eventually tries those methods. It's like getting proof that your pessimism about society is true instead of being unwarranted. That's the hardest part for me -- the proof of how far people go to skirt the rules for themselves that are in place to keep everything functioning instead of just simply doing the right thing for the sake of everyone. It wears you down -- death by a million (pin)pricks.

    Gotta say, I like these one-on-one podcasts with the occasional hot seat guest. It feels less like have the podcast twice a week (because who has time for that anyway?) and feels like a, kind of, call back to Gametime.

    I thought Geoff was a cool guy before the podcast but the fact he spends his free time without a computer kinda makes me respect him just because of the way he chooses to live. Most likly because i want to spend more time without a computer but i enjoy the time i spend on one. Might have to try living without a computer for a couple of months, maybe i'll enjoy it if i respect Geoff for it.

    I agree with you Burnie with the Uncharted movie comment. Another example of that is David Bateson. He is the voice of Agent 47. He looks like Agent 47. Cast him for a hitman film, and it might succeed

    I love the format, reminds me of Joe Rogan's podcast. Also, I love when Burnie and Geoff get to banter.

    I can totally understand having had every conversation you can imagine, but it's still like some guys bullshitting at the bar. Sometimes you hear the same story twice, so what?

    Maybe Burnie should go to Cleveland since it's been in 70-80s F for most of summer. He might have put up with the rain but at least it's cool unlike everywhere else.

    this is so true for myself as well. Im a salesman and I talk for 8-10 hours a day and when i get home I just isolate and chill. This is honestly more than what I usually do as far as comments go because i dont even like to talk on these.

    As someone who currently works a job that pays the bills and feeds me. And that's about it. I will bitch about this job for a long time to come. I spent 6 years getting a trade ticket and haven't worked it since I got my journeyman card. Now I'm working as a helper for minimum wage. Still trying desperately to get back into my trade with no head way being made. It might not be the worst job for you. But that doesn't mean its not a step above rock bottom for someone else.

    Good to see Geoff back on the RT Podcast.


    When Geoff was talking about firing someone it made me think of something I thought about years ago.  That is when you hire someone, give them a job you give them rope as well (figuratively speaking).  The new hire will do one of two things with it:

    -They'll pull their weight with it

                  or

    -They hang themselves with it (in other words getting themselves fired)

    Congrats on giving up on the booze, Geoff. It's kind of a joke that alcoholics say "I can quit anytime I want ... I just don't want to," but you actually decided you wanted to, and did it. Fuckin' inspiring, man. You've helped me to realize that I should make that decision by the time I'm your age.

    I know I'm beating a dead horse but I've got to disagree with Andy, the Star Wars prequels are bad movies. That doesn't mean you can't enjoy them, that's down to personal taste, but you can't say they aren't badly made movies. Bad directing, bad story-telling, bad acting, uninteresting characters, a nonsensical plot, an over-reliance on CG, terrible pacing, misdirected fan service, it's just a mess.

      Do you watch theatre mode?? Those are actual bad movies. The way I see the first three star wars movies is kinda just meh. It may be harde for diehard fans to hold that point of view though

    • Fangtorn FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Take away the budget, the special effects, the famous actors, and the large and talented crew and do you really think the prequels would still be better than many of the films on theatre mode? I honestly don't, and I'm not that huge Star Wars fan.

    i have to say I'm really enjoying these one on one podcasts. I enjoy the more personal and less erratic feel that the regular Monday shows bring, it's just a nice thing to sit down for an hour and hear two friends revel in the past for a bit and share their stories. I'm hoping this format stay around at least a little longer and we get to see a few more combinations.

    I really liked this format for the podcast. It was really informative and neat to listen to a thorough conversation. Having others join the conversation briefly was a great way to expand on the topic instead of people yelling over each other, too. Great to see Geoff back, too!
