What It Is
Boring person natters on endlessly in a monotone about coffee.
There are 70 odd episodes of this show, which went defunct back in 2011 and then released one episode in 2014 and one this year. The most recent fifty of them are downloadable from the show’s iTunes page. There doesn’t seem to be an archive at the official show page. The shows came out very sporadically in those last years. There were only six shows released in 2008, only two in 2009, only one in 2010 and then three in early 2011 at which point the show closed up shop. The shows run about an hour.
What About It
Right, so, this is the worst podcast I’ve yet encountered. The show is typically just the one guy so there’s not even any interplay between the host and guests to entertain the listener. He reviews products related to coffee and brands of coffee by reading what is obviously pre-written copy in a monotone. He occasionally says he’s going to “rant” about something, like free trade coffee or something, which means that he rambles off the cuff in a monotone and makes you long for the pre-written copy. FOR AN HOUR. This show closed up after just seventy episodes and I suspect serious malfeasance in the process that led to it getting nominated for some Podcast Awards. This show is interminable. I listened to five episodes, as is my general procedure, so I can, you know, give whatever show I’m reviewing a fair chance to make an impression on me and loathed every second of it. This isn’t just the most boring podcast of all time, it’s one of the most boring things ever created in human history. However, I have to admit it did kind of inflame my passion for coffee; I needed huge quantities to stay awake while listening to this show.
You think vocal inflection ruins most podcasts.
