Word reaches us via the medium of Twitter that a new Dwarf-related podcast series called ScutterCast has been launched by a chap called ori-STUDFARM (last seen storming off our forum in a strop after being told to get some posts under his belt before relentlessly plugging his own stuff) and cohorts.
Now, irrespective of quality, we at G&T applaud any effort by Dwarf fans to produce new original content. Anything that shows even a modicum of creativity is a million times better than starting yet another forum just because you want to be in charge of something, or hosting a gallery of swiped pictures and calling it a site. With that in mind, we consider it our duty to bring such new enterprises to your attention, despite the fact that the following exchange occurs late in the episode :
“If you search for ‘red dwarf podcast’ on Google, we’re the seventh down because of a Twitter post”
“Well, it won’t take much to climb up higher than that, because the one that’s out there is absolutely dreadful. It’s terrible.”
YOU’RE NOT NICE.
I’m not going to pick apart the various other things I could say about the episode, because the series at least deserves to be given a chance to find its feet. So if you want to listen to the second podcast that has taken the trouble to slag off G&T, here’s the link. Make of it what you will.
(incidentally, Bobby is happy to repeatedly plug ScutterCast on his Twitter, but ignores comments about G&T. Answers on a postcard for what you think we’ve said to offend him.)
