Quote from: phantom_power on August 06, 2021, 01:41:35 PMI have no massive problem with Baddiel and think he is someone who genuinely believes what he says rather than someone in it for a grift or an angle. I just think for a self-confessed intellectual, he is not very clever. The points he makes are often either muddled or very surface-level
Quote from: KennyMonster on August 06, 2021, 10:21:04 AMI know people on here don't like Robin Ince much as a comedy performer but I've enjoyed his range of podcasts over the last few years.However, I've just logged onto his Cosmic Shambles site to see what extra, exclusive content is available for me, as a Patreon subscriber and have found that an interview with Baddiel is on there, talking about his book.The interview went up in July on their website so plenty of time for them to realise that his book is a load of ill researched left smearing bollocks.Rational, scientific thinking is one of their strong points - supposedly.I'll give it a listen but if he isn't pulled apart for the charlatan he is then it's strike 3 for those guys and I'll be withdrawing my Patreon.So Is it only Alexei and Mark Thomas left who are genuine?
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on August 06, 2021, 01:30:37 PMI imagine they won't simply because it's not worth the bother getting flak from everyone who has bigged it up. Plus Baddiel has an uncanny ability to twist any criticism of his nonsense and throw it on the 'see this is exactly what I mean!' pile.

Quote from: Johnny Yesno on August 08, 2021, 04:31:11 PMThe most recent thing I heard Baddiel on was The Infinite Monkey Cage (In Praise of Flies - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000r36l), in which he admitted that he isn't really interested in flies (10m10s) and clearly hadn't done any preparation, simply using it as a vehicle for his boring anecdotes and shit jokes. The very definition of a privileged wanker.
Quote from: Autopsy Turvey on August 11, 2021, 11:09:59 AMMaybe it was a busy week and David didn't get a chance to do all the unpaid fly research that might have made his appearance more palatable to the people who hate him.
Quote from: idunnosomename on August 11, 2021, 11:12:13 AMlest us not mention the time on Unplanned in 2003 where they made a whole bit out of David's astonishment that a "blackbird" was actually a species of bird, and not just a "black bird" like a crow.He was thirty-eight. And he didn't know what a blackbird was. Not sure if they got to the amazing point that the female blackbird isn't even black! Unless she's making fun of Jason Lee, in which case she sellotapes a pineapple to her head.

Quote from: Wayman C. McCreery on August 11, 2021, 05:34:11 AMOn a similar note, I've searched and searched and can't find any evidence for it but I'm certain he went on Charlie Brooker's TV panel show You Have Been Watching and crowdsourced his jokes beforehand. I'm summarising here, but he went on Twitter before filming, asked "What do you guys think about [subject he'd been asked to prepare]?" and then passed the jokes off as his own on the show.I'm sure people on here rightly kicked off about it but there doesn't seem to be a thread for the series he was on.Anyone remember that happening?
