    I have 150+ podcast subscriptions on my Android device and I try to listen to almost all of them regularly as new episodes come out. I’ve listened to at least 30 episodes of Geekbox all the way through.

    Adam’s (I think its Adam?) irritating middle-school behavior has nearly prompted me to write in before, but this new episode’s intro got the job done. I was worried when I first heard Adam blathering incessantly in a terrible fake British accent simply because there are two actual British people on the show. I thought, “Oh jeez, is he going to be doing this throughout the entire episode?”

    Then Adam says, “Let me speak to you in your native dialogue…”. I quickly hit Stop on my podcast player; I needn’t hear anymore, I knew what was coming!

    Adam, I understand you think you’re being funny and charming in some way, but it comes across like you’ve never been around someone who speaks differently than you do, and the novelty is so overwhelming for you that you need to constantly mimic them (poorly). That’s probably not the case though; I’m sure you’ve been around other people with foreign accents before, and I’m sure you acted out obnoxious impressions of them to your friends all the live long day on those occasions as well.

    Adam comes across like the socially inept and impossibly nerdy (in the worst way) neighbor that nobody likes but can’t seem to get rid of, and he has single-handedly caused me to turn off your podcast more than just this once. Usually it’s because Adam is stuttering for three straight minutes trying to get some shitty “joke” out.

    Sincerely,
    A Listener
