Here is a small sampling of the things Joe hates about being himself. One of those things is writing these descriptions for the episodes. Remember last episode when I said I would be surprised if anyone read these? Well, I have had no feed back on my previous episode description. Thus, I have decided that I am going to keep doing these non-sequitur descriptions for the time being. Maybe I will do some coded messages or something. I don't know. Anyway, there is not a lot of listener hate this episode. It seems no one else hates things about being Joe so please enjoy our final "Being Joe" episode.
It's an episode with a guest again. Joe and Lisa's friend Kirk joins us this week to talk about kitchens. It's a good episode. You know, I put a lot of thought into these episode descriptions and I don't think that anyone reads them. Are you reading this? Let me know if you do. I'm not going to make mention of it. I just want to see if I'm wasting my time. Well, maybe I will mention it later if no one says anything or if I get a bunch of people that tell me they do read them. You see, I think that people just look at the title of the episode and make a decision on whether they are going to listen to it or not. I think our loyal fans listen to every episode and I totally love you guys for that. Anyway, Joe hates stuff about his kitchen, so do Kirk and Lisa but not Jake. Jake's kitchen is great. There's listener hate too.
It's our COVID-19 Episode. Yea, we tried to not do one of these episodes but Joe finally cracked. He's had enough. Naturally we start this episode off with Joe's hate for Ford Motor Company and their design and packaging decisions (It's fresh in his mind so he had to talk about it). Then it's on to the COVID-19 hate. Joe hates that he hasn't been to the gym in about a year, not seeing people, and the slow rate of vaccine rollouts. All this and a ton of listener hate.
We are back with our first episode of 2021 and we have a guest. Joe's college buddy Andy joins us on the show this week. Joe hate a random assortment of things including the way Andy pronounces "nuclear," and painting. Plus there is a ton of listener hate.
Part 9. Can you believe it? Joe and Lisa talk about a "quick stop" at the yarn shop. Then it's on to how it seems everyone has forgotten how to drive, large trucks, and people that NEED to park next to you. All this and a bunch of listener hate too.
This week we continue with the topic of writing. Joe has a bunch of clichés and tropes that he hates including his distain for the weak writing practices of "endangering the bah-bee" and "killing the parents" to engage the audience. Joe also hates Deus ex Machina, romcoms, and more.
Joe discusses some of his least favorite authors in this episode. Joe hates the works of John Steinbeck, the style of George R.R. Martin, and the Horror of Stephen King. Joe goes on to add his distaste for long drawn out stories in fantasy books. All this and a ton of listener hate too.
Joe Hates the earbuds he earlier praised, no shave November, a lack of paper towels, and more. Plus, Joe learns that no shave November is no longer a thing and Lisa reaches her limit. All this and a pile of listener hate.
We are working on the audio quality but it’s better to release an episode than miss another week.
