    Other than being a punching bag, what good does he do?

    Artie has zero respect for him, he is late getting back to the mic at least 2x a week.

    Once or twice a week the MP3 upload is fucked up (Last nights 3rd hour)

    Im guessing he is their 'booyie' but they could do better.

    The MP3s in my podcast feed are almost ALWAYS fucked up. Just about every day there is at least one hour in which, at a random time during playback, the audio restarts from the beginning of the hour.

    If Dan's responsible for that, he sucks. But does he really do the data file maintenance?

    As to his on and off air duties, they seem to like him well enough, including punching bag duties.

    Fire Twinsanity too they're NOT FUNNY. They shoulda just hired a comedian to do funny stuff. Quit making them do bits that go no where because they are not performers just average looking dumb chics.

    Dan has nothong to do with the MP3s. As far ad producing goes he books a few interesting guests every night and keeps the show running smoothly. Plus he is fun to goof on.

    But does that matter as much when it's primarily part of a documented feed? I'm getting the correct info (and a logo) in my podcast for each episode. What sucks are (a) the restarts I mentioned above and (b) the minor annoyance of having 3 separate hours downloaded for EVERY day. Kind of stupid, really.

    Podcasts like Carolla's are much more documented, with actual descriptions of the episode and guests. Dick and Artie's doesn't have that. But it's SO SO much funnier that it doesn't matter at all.

    I'm not sure about the iTunes feed, by my podcast feed is pulling right from their WordPress site.

    No SHIT! And while this doesn't seem like a big deal to some, anyone who downloads and listens to podcasts knows what a pain in the ass this is. Very lame.

    Also the levels of this show are very weak. They need some compression so that when artie low-talks, we can still hear. I gotta crank the shit out of the podcast to be able to hear.

    And to be quite clear, I listen anyway despite the amateur hour bullshit because that show is very entertaining.

    That much is true; it hurts when they start shouting after you've raised up your speakers to hear them. (But other podcasts aren't much better about this.)

    Again, though, when do you find the ID3 tags become an issue? Everything looks right in my podcast app (on a stupid Blackberry), the files stay properly in their "The Nick and Artie Show" folder/wrapper. I have to initiate playing each file separately (because the hours aren't part of a playlist) but I don't see anything really missing? Please see above.

    I thought I was the only one who is over this bit. Artie crying laughing at every word out of these two "New York 5's" is not funny, nor fun.

    Enough already.

    They were never of any value, other than to give some eye candy to Artie and further distance the sports content. So for me there was nothing to "get over". If the TV show gets going and they realize they can bring in better looking bimbettes, the twins will probably fade away.

    The production of the show is basically done from L.A. They screen the calls, control when they go to commercial, play the music coming in and out of breaks. The only thing Fellato does is book guests and screw up playing sound effects. But hes fantastic as a source of endless goofing.

    Exactly stuff like that! On my MP3 player, because there is no ID tag with a title, album, number or anything, it resorts t using the date of the file to organize. So depending on which order my podcast retriever grabs the stuff, that's the order the files are displayed.

    Anyway, simple MP3 tags would be useful.

    But the levels are the real annoyance.

    Totally agree whether this was radio or TV (still waiting on the super "HOT" pics). But the absolutely retardedly monotone Brown Sugar singing was funny. These two are to the show what beetlejuice was to stern back in the day.
