KOP discusses the habits of podcast listeners and TV viewers, how they might be changing and how it affects what you do creatively or how you produce it. Plus, why podcasters should diversify which apps they distribute their content too, most notably the new Google Podcasts app.
Also, KOP reviews BlacKKKlansman, and disputes if the Charlottesville clouded the clear-well conceived message within the actual film. Also, Travis Scott’s #Astroworld album lands on the Billboard Hot 100 like an asteroid.
#MoviePass Has A Really Bad Week as in just under a week, MoviePass ran out of money and required a loan in order to keep itself in business.
Plus, they blocked out folks trying to see Mission: Impossible – Fallout, saw shares of Helios and Matheson (its parent company) plunge below $1, had a system-wide crash and apparently announced that it wouldn’t support the newest releases on opening weekend.
Plus, Podcast Movement becomes a meeting place where the radio industry infiltrated and plants the seed of persuading podcasters to work together.
KOP reviews Sorry to Bother You and discusses why the movie’s creativity leads to a counterproductive social commentary.
KOP disputes the ongoing socio-economic narrative that there are deadly conditions of working-class life and the only way to break out of it somehow by lottery-winning luck or through supposed merit. He also disputes the idea the writer/director Boots Riley tries to make that regarding poverty being a system of bad choices. “Yes, maybe you can make better choices and be the crab that gets out of the bucket — but that’ll be at the expense of all the other crabs in the bucket.”
KOP also discusses the messages and the characters and the sci-fi component to the movie that has everyone buzzing.
