    I love Becca and Brandon on podcasts.

    Love Becca and Mariel, more so Becca. Mariel is great on always open, but Brandon and Jordan... Oh Boy. I can't see myself watching this second podcast anymore

    I love Brandon in RT Lifes and the scripted videos but I honestly don't see myself watching or listening the podcast in the future if Brandon is hosting. Brandon dominates the conversation and it is generally uninteresting. He talks about himself or things that relate to him but they are mostly unrelateable and I find myself checking out mentally listening to the podcast.

    Oh, god.  This summer podcast is just a way to groom everyone to accept Brandon as Gus' eventual replacement, isn't it? Bring back Aaron or Josh more often, but 2017 has had SO much Brandon on the RT Podcast already, and he's just not getting any more comfortable or capable as the host.

    I'm all for making jokes about someone, but Jordan kinda took it too far and seemed mean about it :\ 

    I think Brandon's great; he brings some variety to the podcast, but he kept pushing forward too much. Just let the conversation go...

    And Becca and Mariel are always fun to hear!

    I know its not constructive or useful, but I really don't like Jordan at all on the podcast. Everything about him makes him seem like he has a really bad personality in general and hes not interesting on this platform

    There is a lot of feedback from the comment section from the audience, here's the hosts results  from the comments using a Net Promoter Score system adaptation:

    p80hhMQ.png


    *1% to 69% = Detracting the show from being engaged by audience

     70% to 89%= Passive effect, neither detracting nor promoting.

     90% to 100% = Promoting the show to be engaged by audience


    The sample universe is very very small but just by perception does it feel accurate at all?

    • conundrum32068 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      How is 70% not positive?  Especially given the small sample size.   You'd think Jordans 50% would be considered passive no?

    • ImAbetastic Ignite

      @conundrum32068 I totally agree with you. I believe the Net Promoter Score is very harsh with the ranges.

    Ugh. I really hope Gus isn't actually testing Brandon out as podcast host. On the bright side, it's always great seeing Becca and I hope to see more of Mariel on this podcast. They're both amazing!

    Brandon really make the place feel awkward when he says "Don't you guys want to see a public execution?" Also I felt he kept trying to force the cast to talk about capital punishment.

    Becca, Platypus are egg-laying mammals, mammals are animals that breastfeed their young (from Latin "mamma" meaning "breast"). it has nothing to do with how the young are born. Yes they lay eggs, but they're still mammals 


    And Mariel yes, dolphins, whales and porpoise are mammals as well


    It sometimes surprises me how many people don't know this. But hey! You're one of the lucky 10,000! (if they ever read this xD)

      Platypodes aren't just mammals, they're monotremes. Mammals that lay eggs ^_^

    I was really unhappy with how often people would talk over each other. No one could really finish making a point. And I feel bad for Brandon, most of the things he say make perfect sense but he just phrases them badly. But you can tell that people get what he is saying, they just shit on him unnecessarily. I hope Jordan is never put back on, plain rude.

    The thing about milk is that the facts are always evolving. Some studies have shown negative health effects. People cite that the default for humans is to be lactose intolerant and that the opposite is unnatural. However, the Western European genetic code for being able to consume lactose is proliferating at incredible speeds. It is such a good adaptation because milk is reasonably inexpensive, readily available, and so nutrient dense. If the net effect of consuming dairy in adulthood was harmful in any significant way, the genes for tolerance wouldn't be so prolific.


    As an aside, milk is not actually good for neutralizing spice. The enzymes mostly just cause the capsaicin oil to spread around your mouth and throat. They're not strong enough neutralize the heat. The better solution is some form of oil because capsaicin is an oil and therefore not water soluble.

    People weren't bored. You think they were bored because YOU would be bored because you're used to everything you have now to entertain you. In those times, you worked all day and spent time with your family and then you slept.

    I remember hearing a story about a chicken that lived for over a year after its head was cut off.. I just googled it again now to get the facts right and if you are curious "Mike the headless chicken" lived for 18months with its head, an eye-dropper was used to feed it & died oddly enough from chocking on a bit of corn.
    Nature really is weird, brutal, wonderful and really odd!

    There was a documentary I watched in French class about the guillotine and there was a scientist that was curious about consciousness after being beheaded during the WW2 era. Fun fact, you can be conscious to up to 12 seconds after being beheaded. :|

    What was Becca talking about? Platypus's are literally KNOWN for being egg-laying mammals. Specifically, they're monotremes, which is the third group of mammals, next to placentals and marsupials.

      Right. I was thinking monotremes and mammals were mutually exclusive. As in, monotremes are a class of their own. I stand corrected.

    Good, entertaining, quality podcast. I think giving it a different name might help, though. Other people seem to be expecting the core members for the RT podcast.


    I will admit, though, that the Joel and Tyler trailer at the end made me laugh more than most of the rest of this one.
