On Wednesday, February 2nd, at 9 PM EST, join me on Talkshoe for the new relaunch of my online radio show, “Clearly, You’re Retarded”! Click here to add it to your Google calendar.
Here is where I anticipate your imaginary questions about the relaunch:
Q: Isn’t using the word “retarded” insulting and offensive?
A: The word “retarded” is being used to mean “with diminished intellectual capacity”, and I contend that it’s an appropriate word given the context. Some of my closest friends hate that I use that word, but I find that it has the impact that I require.
Q: What will the show be about?
A: It’s going to be an open-format show, where I’ll talk, take calls, and otherwise just fill an hour with my jibber-jabber.
Q: Didn’t you have a far superior iteration of this show when you argued about topics with Britt? Why aren’t you doing that?
A: It was an excellent show, but we exhausted the topics on which we disagreed and it ran its course. While I don’t think it could be as good as the original show, it will be its own creature.
Q: How do I listen?
A: It’s easy – go to Talkshoe and download the Talkshoe Pro client for free. It will let you listen in on the show, chat in the chatroom, and call in if you feel like it.
Q: What if I can’t listen live?
A: That’s no problem. The show page will have the show available for mp3 download, or you can just subscribe to the iTunes podcast.
Q: Can I suggest topics or be a guest?
A: Sure! Well, maybe. Once I get the format figured out, I’ll start having guests on, and if there are topics you’d like to see discussed, you can email me or comment with them and I’ll definitely consider them.
Q: Can my kids listen?
A: Probably not. Unless you’re old so your kids are over 18.
Q: Would you say you have a face made for radio?
I hope to see you all there in the chatroom on Wednesday night at 9 PM EST!
