Quote from: olliebean on May 12, 2021, 08:49:22 PMWhat does everyone think about the other guy (his producer, I think) on the podcast? I understand that the thing wouldn't exist at all without him, but honestly, I'd sooner just listen to Alexei talk, without him chipping in and trying to make it more what his idea of a podcast is. I mention it now because it seemed to come across fairly clearly that the Patreon is his initiative, and that a major reason for it is that he wants to get paid.
Quote from: evilcommiedictator on May 14, 2021, 02:51:21 AMHow much out of pocket can it be for something like this (asking genuinely, not for criticism) - hosting fees and paying your audio engineer, plus your mic and gear?I imagine a lot of people download it, so the hosting fees are probably eye watering?
Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on June 03, 2021, 01:18:14 AMThere's a nice bit where Alexei says Spoiler alerthe was absolutely blown away and threatened by Williams' ability to manically improvise, until he eventually realised that Williams had about three gag-packed hours of material that he'd work around. Which is obvious in hindsight, of course he wasn't making all that stuff up off the top of his head, but Alexei admits that, in those days, he had no idea of how stand-up really worked. There's also a lovely moment where they recall Williams genuinely improvising a successful bit and saying to them afterwards: "I need to write that down!"[close]
Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on June 03, 2021, 01:57:10 AMNo, but he probably will at some point. He's more than happy to talk about some of the shite he's appeared in.

Quote from: non capisco on June 03, 2021, 10:33:21 AMI need to see that episode of Lovejoy he talks about now. OH MOI GAWWWWD LOVEJOY, YOU'VE PAID 'OW MUCH FERRA TOILET?!!!!
Quote from: MoreauVasz on June 05, 2021, 07:12:34 AMI think the podcast started off with Sayles assuming the role of the bemused outsider but you can see the wry showbiz courtier struggling to get out and I suspect that is a lot closer to how he lives his life.
Quote from: notjosh on June 05, 2021, 01:39:16 PMFunny you should say that. I haven't listened to the latest ep, but just came to share something I found in Matthew Wright's showbiz column while going through some old editions of the Daily Mirror. He found Sayle somewhat unwelcoming at Angus Deayton's birthday party:

Quote from: poodlefaker on June 06, 2021, 12:54:39 PMThis occured to me in that interview he did with Stewart Lee, in which he seemed genuinely shocked that Lee had never been to a dinner party.
Quote from: mr. logic on June 23, 2021, 12:30:36 PMThe producer on this just doesn't seem to get what he's doing there. They don't mesh at all.
