    curry podcasts

    I'm not sure why Curry's podcasts are so popular. I find him to be unlistenable. His subject matter is annoyingly self-referential and his personality cloyingly smarmy. I can only deal with so many "those-were-the-days" remembrances about MTV and mentions of the gold records on his studio walls.

    Also, Dave Winer's contributions to podcasting are sadly underrepresented in the linked Wired article, as Dave himself will tell you (of course):

    boring

    yeah i agree, once you get past the gee whiz he's invented podcasts back patting, his actual content is boring!

    Amazing.

    After two minutes of the first "podcast" I was longing for the sweet sound of nails on chalkboard. The dude clearly has absolutely nothing to say, and one can only be amazed at the feeling of self importance he exsudes while being so utterly uninteresting. Compared to him the Regis and Kelly show is edgy and exciting. Boooooooooooring.

    Listen to something else

    Jeez folks...some of you are nothing but a bunch of Winers (pun intended). Obviously, you either have a thing against Curry, you're a big Dave Winer fan (or you ARE Dave Winer) or you JUST DON"T GET IT!. This is just like the radio - if you don't like what you are hearing change the friggin station (aka - don't download the feed)! No one is holding a gun to your head and making you listen to Adam's podcast.

    As for Lord's comments that "...The dude clearly has absolutely nothing to say, and one can only be amazed at the feeling of self importance he exsudes while being so utterly uninteresting". Guess what? That sentence describes most of the talkshow/commentary podcasts I've listened to - like DNDS, Keith & the Girl, Daily Source code, Jimmy Jett - as well as the mainstream radio shows out there like Rush, Savage, Bortz - and the TV talk shows like Regis, Springer, etc.. They all are self absorbed to a large extent and are full of themselves. You either find them entertaining and watch/listen or you don't AND YOU CHANGE THE CHANNEL!

    Adam is a celebrity and knows people in the business. People like Dave Winer aren't famous (yet) and probably know few people. But hey - Dave should exude some more self-importance/confidence and get his name and his story out there. As long as it's interesting, people are bound to listen...and bash it at the same time.
