I knew the reputation of Relevant magazine, so when I found the Relevant podcast I was stoked to start listening to their relevant show about music, culture, and God. Although I am overwhelmed with my podcast choices, the Relevant podcast episode titled, “Episode 568: The Lone Bellow” won me over. So I pressed play.
Honestly? It sounded like a few trashy male shock jocks rambling on about something or another, unappealingly advertising something or another. *clicks 15-second fast-forward* *clickclickclick* ...20 minutes in... *clickclickclick* ...50 minutes in... *Insert a drawn out insult about Nashville from annoying DJ man.* (Coming from a Jersey girl: it’s a really great city, by the way, that probably a bunch of your followers come from AND that fits SO well with the Lone Bellow vibes. So uncalled for, ignorant DJ man. Way to alienate your listeners.) One hour and twenty seconds in: insert 8 minute lo-fi phone interview in a ONE HOUR AND FORTY MINUTE episode. Come on! That’s SO misleading! I don’t have time for this clickbait.
It takes a really bad podcast for me to leave a review. I had high hopes for you guys and, goodness gracious was I let down.
Hopeful end note: there are many better, more relevant podcasts, people. Move along.
(Also, can we talk about how Relevant magazine rated and reviewed the Relevant podcast 5 stars? 😂😂)
