    Just listened to a replay of Ass Napkin's first appearance the other day and it was full of Artie. I would think if they were scrubbing personalities, Artie would be at the top of the list. Or just not play the bit at all...

    If anyone can post a clip that they think is scrubbed, I can see if I have the old version and compare it.

    They just played the 'Madonna's Sister' episode and all the Jackie was intact. I went and listened to the archived copy and it seemed to be the same. The thing with Jackie on the show is that he didn't always contribute a lot on air. Sure, there were Jackie segments but outside of that, he was always kind of in the background. Even with the mic's, his volume was always down for the most part. Howard would specifically turn it up when Jackie had something to contribute.

    After listening to a few of the recent Sternthologies, with Jackie and Artie present, I don't think they are doing any scrubbing.

    Also an excellent idea. Instead of 1 week's pay (which is standard for several companies I've worked for), have no party and give everybody 2 week's pay.

    She needs to start cracking that whip. Can’t let Artie say gay jokes on Sternthology

    Sometimes they mention "writers" on the show, and I have to wonder what the hell they're writing.

    I've been listening again since my new car came with a Sirius subscription. I do still laugh when they are just sitting around bullshitting with the staff, but the "prank" calls are painfully fake. And "Flirty Gary" supposedly calling people from Tindr/Grindr represents the worst of the fake bits. Pre-written bits have never been the show's strong point.

    The prank calls to internet radio shows are horrifically unfunny and amateur hour

    Those are the worst. There's no challenge in "pranking" people with no audience, no listeners, and who are desperate for ANYBODY to call. Even pranking a public access show is better than pranking somebody podcasting from their own basement to nobody.

    It's sad to think how good the real prank calls were compared to the prank calls they're doing now.

    Dude I can’t even understand what’s being said on these calls because these internet radio shows make Robin’s ISDN sound clear

    Unfunny, unlistenable and a disgrace to what the calls used to be the back office retards should kill themselves

    I also wonder if the “podcasters” are show staff members. Not hard to do.
