I've listened to The Paracast for a handful of years now and I found the change to Chris O'Brien a good thing but lately the show has been sliding. Smug comments on politics is becoming a weekly standard now and it falls under the "UFOs are in politics" mantra, I guess if someone thinks the government would ever release that information, regardless of late night sound bites, you could say it's politics but we're going on 60+ years now. I for one listened to the show instead of political shows for a reason and if you don't follow their views you're likened to someone that has some sort of problem. A hint: just because someone isn't 100% Hillary doesn't mean they are 100% Trump. I feel that's more of their attitude and as an independent voter it wears pretty thin after a while. The UFO guests are starting to run out. It's becoming a choice of 1940's information, dimensional travelers, and "we'll just vote for them to tell us" advocates with not much that's new. More paranormal and less ET would have been nice. There are commercials but each podcast has to fund itself in some way so if you really don't like commercials they will bug you, they were fine in my opinion. There is a refreshing aspect to the show regarding guests and the far out ones; it's one of, if not the only one, that questions guests (sometimes to the point the guest huffs off). THAT is something that puts them above many shows that just let guests rant with no checks. This may mean that some "fan favorites" don't come on the show knowing they aren't 100% safe, so keep that in mind. The listeners that come on as guest hosts are interesting, and if there was more variety that would be refreshing, otherwise they can become a guest you've heard before. Gene has really bad jokes, groaners. They should get the cricket chirping clip for them. "Keep working on your act kid, one day you'll make it." In the end my decision to unsubscribe was due to the constant political jabs, I get enough of that on other media forms thank you. So I'm taking Chris' advice, since I don't like it I'm not going to listen. Too bad as it was my Sunday night work favorite.
