  1. I haven’t even listened to this podcast yet but I came here to say “KEEP PODCASTS AUDIO !” I’ve been enjoying listening to the podcast(s) in my car for years. I’ve been enjoying watching VIDEO content on Tested and YouTube. I’m OK with you filming the podcasts and posting them to YouTube to get more hits (more revenue.) But since you’ve added the screen on the set it’s become “TV on the radio” and that makes for bad podcast listing. As Will would say, it would be a dick move if you were trying to drive podcast listeners to YouTube to get more revenue.

  2. sorry about that, we’ll do a better job keeping focused on the audio. rest assured we’re not trying to drive podcast listeners to video. audio is our preferred way to distribute these!

  3. I believe you recently asked us to provide feedback on which sponsors we’d like to hear from? Consider this one vote for not accepting money from Turbotax, which uses dark patterns and intentionally misleading websites to trick low-income families into paying to file their taxes even though federal law mandates they provide a free service.

  4. , I have to agree. I hadn’t realized it, but the screen has slowly taken over as the center piece of the podcast.

  5. OK, you asked podcast listeners what we would want to see from an Adam Savage directed Silicon Valley Comic Con (totally excited !!!) … More exhibits! At the last SVCC the entire floor (aside from the NASA booth) seemed to be 100% vendors. Back in 2016-2017 there were movie cars, robots, wardrobe exhibits, etc. Last year I don’t recall any of that. Also, the panels are really hard to get in to, so how about more of them. I’d love to see interactive “Maker” mini-panels with R2D2 builders, stormtrooper builders, professional cosplayers, professional prop makers, YouTubers (Punished Props etc).

  6. Hey. Just wondering whats happened with the episode numbering? Went from 539 to 340? Im a little confised as i am curently listening to the back catalog.
