One thought on “MAXed Out – This is Only a Test 578 – 12/10/20

  1. Why is this sound level on this podcast always so much lower than literally everything else I listen to? And who keeps typing on mic?

    Guy from New York moves to Atlanta, can’t stop talking about how things were in New York. That’s great. Talks about “changing the demographics” so the place he moved to can turn into the place he left. Also great. Apparently scared to leave the house despite an abundance of large, mostly empty city, county, state, and national parks within 30 minutes to 3 hours from the house. The Tested crew and associates seem remarkably out of touch with how most of the country lives and functions outside of California and apparently New York.

    How do people find time to watch movies and TV shows over and over? I barely have time to watch new stuff (and I don’t watch that much stuff), but Kishore’s watching a 20+ movie series for the third time? Norm’s wife has watched the entirety of the West Wing (that’s like 120 hours of TV) many times? How and why? It’s such a foreign concept to me.

    (Yes, I’m cranky. I’m a native Atlantan, and an extra two months of nonstop political ads on TV, radio, and streaming shows, phone calls, texts, mailers, and stuff left on your door will do that to you.)
