Ep 41 - The Curious StealthCat
To criticize this week's podcast would be a tough job, but we're up to the task. It may be the story, or only the continuity that is wrong. It may be the direction or the acting. It might even have been the bomb shelter's rats chewing on the microphone wires. Ultimately, however, the blame must be put on SK Morton as he was the one who let these people into the building.
There's nothing particularly new in this week's episode except that it took more people to destroy it. In addition to appearances by Babette, Carissa Z, and Rebel, we welcomed back into the bomb shelter DHB (The former guest co-host who threatened to blow up the entire concept of a lousy podcast with his impeccable comedic timing, rapier wit, and suicide vest) and, all the way from the corporate office in Hayward, Shantwon triumphantly returns and then promptly trips over a dining rat.
The grievances raised by Louella Parsons about this week's show within a show are well-founded. SK's version of an old timey radio play - "StealthCat" - can sometimes be entertaining (In that only 6 of 10 polled preferred a "poke in the eye"); sometimes educational (But not in a good way); and sometimes inaudible (Which can be a nice break). In addition to some San Francisco history worked in to the dialogue about city parking meters, Shanghaiing, Fior d' Italia, and the Dog Patch listeners are also treated to absolutely nothing else.
So tune in next week for another pursuit in exhibitionism. Same lousy time. Same Lousy Podcast.
