Title: The little podcast that could
When this show started, I didn't think it had any hope. A show that depended on reviews for the show to exist? Impossible! But, like the little engine that could (and I do think that needs to be a merch idea), PRRP kept chugging along with his "I need reviews. Please review. I need reviews. Please review." and the show blossomed into a thing of beauty! I adore everything about it - the pleasant voice, the fun reviews and the reviews of those reviews. I also like how PRRP isn't hamstringed by different locations! I bet he could even do a show from the shower and it would be amazing! This show and its host deserve 5 stars!
This podcast is the pinnacle of modern podcasting. It makes me warm inside yet slightly cool on the outside so bring a jacket if you know what I mean. You will find that this podcast is the essence of podcasting and modern society itself (really, it is). It is peak podcast. You will laugh, you may cry (if you think about it too much) but mostly laugh. If you don't "get it" then maybe you don't "get" podcasts at all. Leave a review so that the show can continue!
This podcast is so beautifully meta.
Did you intend it as a commentary on podcast navel-gazing or how media today is built around maximizing engagement to draw the favor of enigmatic, all-powerful algorithms, or am I pretentiously reading way too much into it?
This is a great review. I give it five stars.
The next review is a five star review from Tom Mattheson. He says
"I love this podcast. It's almost as good as the five star review from MouseShepherd that you just reviewed. Great review on that, by the way. I give your review of that review five stars. You really reviewed that review of your review well. Will you please review my review of your review of MouseShepherd's review of the Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast?"
Thanks for that excellent review Tom Mathesson. I give it five stars. And I give your review of my review of your review of my review of MouseShepherd's review of the Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast 8 out of 5 stars.
Wow, that was a really great review, probably the best review I've ever gotten and I think my review of it is the best review that I've ever given on the Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast.
The next review is by you. You might not have thought that you wrote this review, but you definitely did.
“Oh God, why? Why? Endless recursive observational insanity spiraling into the solipsistic examination of oneself and the other until the distinction breaks down into meaninglessness and all becomes one with the omni-narcissist. Why? WHY?
That’s another fantastic review, and I’m glad to see that you understand where we’re headed with this podcast. So I give your review negative four stars.
That’s the end of this episode. Anything you hear after this that might sound like me is an imposter who should not be trusted under any circumstances. Do not be deceived.
