That is exactly what SGU does. Steve trims down interviews and segments for SGU and the cut material (and other stuff) is available for members-only listening.

how good's the stuff we're missing out on?

I imagine he prefers it the way he's doing it.

yeh, but if it would cost him nothing, and get him a few listeners with less free time, he might be into it.

though I don't know of anyone who has actually tried this milk model of podcasting -- would people really want the trim milk version, trusting that nothing good is cut out? would people ever bother with the full cream version if they knew the trim one probably had everything worth the bother?

Rogan can keep tighter tolerances for a shorter run time with no loss of flexibility or yumminess, IMO. I get that requires more time up front and probably some training on interviewing skills. If you Google a bit, the average run time is usually under an hour, with 20 minutes for a podcast being touted as a good target for adults given average attention spans (and commute times). It depends on the topic and the target audience, of course. It's a good show as it is: he'd reach more folks with a shorter run time, though, say 45 minutes (again, IMO. And I would say the same for SGU).

Sorry to hear about your father Steve, Jay, and Bob.

I like the long format.  If I'm interested in the guest, I'd rather have too much than too little.

Then I used the soap, scrubbed for maybe 20 seconds with it. Then I used the other two to try to wash the soap away. Then I used the alcohol to get rid off the remaining soap.

The alcohol in question was a Fernet-Branca, 39% alcohol.

20 seconds is reasonable. Thats CDC recommended length of time.
39% probably alcohol wont have helped much. Ive heard 60% to 70% for sanitiser.

Give the phone a once over with an alcohol cleaning wipe and youd be as safe from infection as you are any other time.

Very simply the standard is too weak.

The standard wasn't developed for GMO Foods. It was the pre-GMO standards. It is based on the assumption that different varieties of existing ordinary foods will be safe and not need to be tested as new foods.

Using that standard assumes that it's virtually impossible to genetically engineer a safe food into a harmful food.


Your mileage may vary.

Fun fact: Iowa, my home, has about 3 million people and produces in the neighborhood of 49 million hogs each year. There are about 20 million hogs in residence at any given time.

If you build it...

The Circle (2017): Interesting concept, but poorly executed. In particular, I thought the main character's actions made no sense at all. She nearly drowns in a borrowed canoe so she decides that privacy is a lie and she needs to make her life into a live reality TV show? Wut? And this happens after one of the company's founders basically tells her outright that she's working for the bad guys. In addition, the movie was about as subtle as a sledgehammer. If they had made the point more subtly and the company less obviously nefarious, then their point wouldn't have seemed so much like it was based on some ridiculously naive straw man caricature of things that are actually happening in the real world. That would've made for a much more interesting movie. I did like the main character's solution to the problem at hand, although it was a somewhat obvious one, and one that would never have worked in real life (but then, a lot about the movie is completely unrealistic). I give it a 6.5/10
