    I really love broadcast, they're so on point on every show. They make the podcasts so much better. Props to them!

    I still think that Hillary Clinton is a worse CANDIDATE than Donald Trump. Trump may be 'sexist' but Hillary is Corrupt. Not a very good trait for the president of the United States

    I like how the wheels are always turning in Gav's head. Burnie was talking about closing the show, Gav thinks to himself "I'll set up the production guys for a gag to end the show while we talk about it". Pulls it off, takes them a second to catch on but it works. It's no wonder he's the Creative Director

    So Burnie has just been awoken to sexism in his life while I, a 19 white male in college, has to be careful with everything I say and do when I am around women or else I will be prosecuted on something I said/did that someone may have misconstrued. I say something because my friends and I think its funny and we don't have the same feeling as to what the joke is I'm telling.

    The is why I love Roosterteeth. They can have funny podcasts poking fun at each other and telling hilarious stories but also have interesting and engaging conversations about serious topics.

    I don't mind offensive comedy, as long as it's not offensive to people who are already being stepped on. If the punchline of your joke is just 'haha disabled people' or 'haha black people' or 'haha gay people' etc. then you aren't funny.

     If you can't make jokes that aren't on the expense of someone who's being discriminated against, then you aren't funny.

    I'm so happy that Burnie actually brought up sexism and they all talked about it (and other issues) completely seriously

      This is yet another reason that RT is one of the best companies on Earth.  They are all so accepting and sensitive to issues that a lot of people aren't willing to acknowledge.  They all seem to truly care. :)

    I had a history teacher in college who kept saying me-me. It drove me nuts.

    Also meme is based on the word gene, which is why it's pronounced the way it is. The word memetics comes from meme, not the other way around.

      I once had a teacher who INSISTED that "Jumanji" was pronounced "Ju-maan-ji" We had to read the whole book out loud and she'd audibly correct us every. single. time.

    • CloakaDagger FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      "Meme" is based on "gene" in pronunciation, but the word itself comes from the Greek "mimema", which is also where we get words like "mimesis", "mimic", and "mime", or the French "même", meaning "same". So Burnie's partially right, there is some horizontal basis to justify a 2-syllable pronunciation, and some against, if you didn't know otherwise. I can't fathom people saying it with 2-syllables, because I made the French connection as soon as I first saw it online.

      Sounds like he lives about three miles away, which is about an hour to walk (humans typically walk 2-3 miles per hour) and about five minutes by car, depending on traffic.

      @EddyMack This is exactly the point Michael made which is when people get offended on behalf of other people. The joke is not made at the expense of everyone who has gone through something similar, it is literally aimed towards Joan Rivers' own experience.

    I have a friend who never says bye when we're out and hanging out together. He's hanging out with a group of our friends, and then suddenly. Gone. He doesn't say bye or anything.  

    It's really annoying. We spend a good couple minutes trying to figure out if he actually left, or just went to the bathroom, etc. 

    He also is bad at responding to text messages, so when we text him it takes a good hour+ for him to respond to us to tell us that yes, he did go home, he didn't get kidnapped or fall in a pit or something.... :|

    Ugh, Dead Rising is over the top stereotypes. And women in Japan are more reserved than in America. It's not a serious take on reality. It's making fun of tropes most of the time.

    I really enjoyed the serious part of the postshow. They all bring up some good points, and I especially liked that they used Trump to start to conversation but took it beyond just him and acknowledged the bigger issue. Great stuff!

    Yeah when 'meme' came out of nowhere i hadn't a clue how to pronounce it, so at first i was saying it 'me-me' (like 'me' not 'may' or 'mei'). that got 'corrected' fast :P

    Interesting to hear them talk about their own ignorance like that.

    Weird hearing Gavin say he cant believe people are like that still. There are things that he and some of AH say that blow my mind that they're still saying it in 2016. 

    Its like hes going "these people have no frame of reference so they still say it". And hes still talking about himself as well. Almost funny.

      @Sss1025 the first thing that comes to mind is that they say "retard" almost every video. Using a slur like that without thought is pretty shocking. People consciously stopped saying that word when i was in primary school, i cant believe they still do. If 12 year olds could tell it was a slur, they should be able to too.

    That's a good point that Gav made, that if your circle of friends and colleagues doesn't contain a lot of shitty people you don't realize that there are as many shitty people around. Like I didn't know there were still old folks who called black people "colored" up here in New York until I met one recently.

    Regarding offensive jokes, I think it depends on whether you are literally just being an ass to someone who is a victim or a minority or not. There is a line. But things like dark jokes about yourself or your own experiences etc, go for it, why not.

    Lovely! I like it when they talk about serious issues (though their funny stories will always be entertaining) and fan interactions. It's a nice way to remind myself that they're real people living in the same world as I am and not just 'characters' on the internet that I only see on my laptop.

    I love the podcast.  I love Gus, Gavin, Barb, and Burnie.


    But I really love this episode because we finally got some different people on beyond even the "B-team" of Chris, Brandon, and Blaine (all of whom I also enjoy).  I've been hoping for a while that Ashley would be on, and it has happened.


    I'm sure I'm in the minority (otherwise they'd do it more often), but I'd really like to see a continued mixing of the podcast cast.

    To be fair, if you look at anything close enough, you'll find it to be somewhat sexist/racist. Sometimes it's best just to enjoy the thing.

    On the topic of sexism, when this cast brings up problems with sexism/racism/homophobia, they're praised and agreed with in the comments. But when Mica brings it up it's because she's a dumb SJW feminzai. No double standards there at all.

    • Wolfwood_RoT FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      If you're talking about the off topic podcast and the comment section from that one, I think the main complaints came from her setting off several red flags.

      The main one I saw was in relation to the wage gap myth. It's basically a trigger phrase for people in the skeptical communities who hear about it over and over despite debunking it at its core. They're basically screaming internally "Why is this still a thing they bring up!?"

      People in the comments mostly wanted the debate with her, but the medium for which they were putting points forward isn't really suited for that.


      Personally I like what Mica brings to videos, but I know if topics like the ones she raised back then came up, we'd be on opposing sides of the debate.

      What's sad is that people seem to think you can't leave those debates as friends with people on the other side.

      But why not? There's more to life and friends than 100% agreement on everything.

      By having friends like that and joining the debate you can see other viewpoints and how your own stand up to scrutiny.

      Firstly - Wolfwood_RoT has basically said what i was going to (Only in a much better way), but i'm sure another reason why it was disliked was the fact she went on about it for an extended period of time

    • Swible FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      @Wolfwood_RoT And that's fine to not agree with her, but consistently (especially on youtube) it's not that they don't agree with her, they instead just fall back to borderline or completely racist/sexist insults. Even though I bet there are some people talking about her views on the wage gap issue, the large majority just label her with slurs and psuedo-insults like FemiNazi. They're not trying to argue, they seemingly just want to scream and cry at someone who disagree's with their world view. And part of it is cyclical, she's the new girl just like Lindsey was. For AGES after Lindsey started appearing in videos regularly, every video she was in would have a wave of down votes and sexist remarks thrown at her. I can only hope it clears up for Mica like it did for Lindsey.

      @LazarouDave Well yea, that's what the off topic podcast is, the entire podcast is just rant after rant about their opinions and experiences. 45 minutes of Destiny, 1 hour of Geoff killing animals, 6 hours of Game X that just came out. Despite her getting all the hate for having those opinions, I don't see any hate thrown at the other members of AH for placidly agreeing with her statements. They call each other out all the time for the littlest things, so I like to truly believe if they really didn't agree with her they would have spoke up. But that doesn't change how everyone sees Mica as a Tumblr SJW incarnate.

      @Swible @Wolfwood_RoT It's not only that. I think its because in that same episode they announced she was Achievement hunter and you know how people react to new people. It was her first time officially as an employee and she ranted at something isnt a "fun" topic so people just hammer that down. "If she is on something i'm going to close the tab or not watch it". while in RTX when she was on camera people in the comment section was telling her to show her boobs and other sexually aimed insults. 


      I personally have no problem with her. Hopefully people will see past her first appearance on offtopic and eventually get over it. I mean, she isnt nearly as bad as Brandon.

    I don't know if any of the cast is looking at the comments, but on the subject of dark and comedy based on personal events, there's a documentary on Netflix about Tig Notaro, who did a bit about her getting cancer the day after the diagnosis and a week after her mom died.  It's strangely motivational, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested.

    There is something comical about Gavin, one of the more famous people in Austin, and YouTubers in general, and as it is a very well off/possibly even "wealthy" person, walking an hour home after work at his job playing video games lol.

    Interesting thing to know.
    Also liked the longer Post Show and seeing Ashley and Burnie on the Podcast together again!
