  • The host (Aaron & Jim) dynamic

    It seams to me that Jims role is to shoot down every theory, or meta conversation. You can actually have a drinking game with every time Jim says "oookkayy" or I don't care etc....
    He seam like he just wants to watch and go for the ride, and doesn't want to talk about the show for 2+ hrs.
    Am I the only one who feels this way or am I just an ahole?
    I think it's clear that both Jim and Aron are logical thinkers, and they are both creative. However, because of their personalities, Aron's creativity (e.g. crafting fan theories, coming up with interesting questions to ponder, etc.) comes out a bit more, and Jim's logical / analytic side (e.g. breaking down those fan theories, clarifying those interesting questions etc.) comes out a bit more.

    A show with 2 Jims... I'm not sure how well that works. A show with 2 Arons... that might get a little crazy. A show with 1 Jim and 1 Aron - that's some good podcastin'.

  • What makes Bald Move so good?

    My real intention here is to get other podcast recommendations, but I have some thoughts on this. Here's what makes Bald Move so good (as far as I can tell). 

    1. Intelligence: this one is simple. Jim and Aron are just generally smart and insightful dudes. 

    2. Focus: Jim and Aron stay on task. They get to the point. They rarely (if ever) chase rabbit trails. And, even though they are both very funny, they don't chase jokes. They aren't trying to be funny, they just are funny. They leave jokes where they need to be (and don't belabor the point).

    3. Homework: yes, Jim and Aron are intelligent and insightful... but they make good use of the intelligence and insights of other people. They seek out the best perspectives that can be found on the internet. Of course, importantly, they don't just leave it at that. They build on / evaluate those other perspectives. 

    4. Chemistry: Jim and Aron are a great pairing. Yes, Aron may have more of the "gift of gab" than Jim, but gabbing alone only makes for a pretty-good podcast. Every Aron needs a Jim (and vice versa). Jim has plenty to say too, but his natural state seems to be to sit back and critically evaluate what he's being pitched... he consistently challenges ideas, clarifies questions, etc. 

    Two questions: 

    Have I missed anything (and)?

    Are there any other movie / tv podcasters that hit all these points? It's my experience that most miss on at least one or two of these.

    OMG

    I need an instant take after that. 
    I thought the same! What a way for Nacho / Michael Mando to go out. I’m surprised they took him off the board this early… we’ll see what the rest of the season has in store.
