  1. While we’re giving audio quality feedback here, Manny’s voice was much quieter than the audio excerpts, which had me constantly reaching for the volume knob. So if you could try to somehow normalise the volume between different bits of audio would be great. Otherwise another great episode, the bit about the Duke Fightmaster Show was really funny and sad at the same time. I guess the main difference between him and Frank is how seriously they take the phrase “don’t quit your day job”.

  2. Yeah that guy Duke Fightmaster is seriously deluded and untalented. I think I have a bit more talent and am somewhat less deluded… but yes, I am in the same boat as this guy, as painful as that is to admit. Though I am hopeful I can find the right balance someday…

  3. Thanks for the feedback Teemu I will try to balance my levals better. Thanks for the nice words about the show. Frank, you are a zillion times more talented than Duke. I was trying to make the point of how you do have a good balence between life and hobby.

  4. Yes I do agree about the talent thing and I didn’t mean to compare you in that aspect. After doing an ludicrous amount of shows (an ostensibly even having professional writers to back him up?) that guy’s delivery is still horrible. Frank on the other hand is very pleasant to listen to any time and his shows are still the thing that I keep coming to the ONSUG for, though I have started to sample the other shows that are released here as well.
