I loved this podcast for many years, but the current version is not pleasant to listen to. I cannot take any more of Bill's shouting, shrieking, singing and blathering on about... Whatever the heck it is that he goes on about. Are there two or three other participants besides Bill? I can't tell, because none of them can get a word in edgewise around his antics. If anybody other than Bill gets to talk, then he cuts them off before they can potentially say something funny and steal his spotlight.
Two stars. One for each of the episodes of the "reborn" series that I've been suffered through. The aims of Taverncast seem well intended. The editing is as sharp as ever. The audio quality is as good as it can be with Bill burying the needle every 20 seconds. The outtakes are... Honestly? I couldn't make it through the outtakes. It was just more of Bill screaming. If there were more outtakes and less of that nonsense in the show proper, I'd be happier.
Sorry, Taverncast. I loved you once. It's not me. It's you.
