The problem with part of the problem

I mostly only watch this show on Gas Digital. I signed up and was happy to pay a few bucks to get early access. The problem is there’s no communication when a show isn’t on schedule. I know Dave has a lot going on but couldn’t somebody else at gas digital put in the minimal amount of effort to notify fans if a show is canceled? I checked the Gas Digital Twitter and it’s literally an automated post linking to “Watch Dave Smith live now!” Dave should respect his audience’s time… 30 min on a Friday waiting around on my couch for a show isn’t that long… but I could have spent that time on a phone with a family member or something. If you treat your audience like fuck ups that have all the time in the world to waste because they don’t have a job or a gf or whatever then that’s the kind of audience you’ll keep instead of attracting responsible, successful adults who value their time. Couldn’t the liberty movement use more of those people?May 28, 2021 at 7:14 pm #980625PRstanleyParticipant

You sat around for 30 minutes waiting for a podcast and are trying to act like you have a life, you’re a loser.May 29, 2021 at 3:51 pm #981558ChuckParticipant
Look dude, I’m not trying to act like some hot shot… I have a few things going for me, but the pandemic definitely put a lot of us in a bad spot including myself. On a positive note the pandemic helped grow this show’s audience significantly and Dave has become an even more important voice in the liberty movement, so as someone who supports the show and cares about the message I think my point is legitimate and coming from a good place. Most of the audience are in a situation where if they aren’t gonna show up for work, they at least have to spend a few seconds texting their employer to let them know. I know Dave is a rising star, but this is basic stuff. I’m a regular dude who just wants to see the show continue to do well so that’s where I’m coming from. Maybe you think this is just pathetic whining from a loser who has nothing better to do. Even if you’re right, I will say that telling strangers on the internet that they are losers on a rarely used web forum doesn’t exactly look that great either. Maybe we should try and not act like dicks to each other?June 2, 2021 at 7:33 pm #989942CitizenErasedParticipant
100% agree with Chuck. You’re paying for three scheduled shows a week, you should get a heads-up if he can’t deliver. Maybe he should only air twice a week if he can’t keep his commitments.June 4, 2021 at 12:22 pm #992367Big j mdmaersonParticipant
I agree with this 100%. Understood that Dave has a lot going on right now and thank goodness for him and the Mesis caucus. He totally converted me to libertarianism.
But yes a little one sentence thing put on the network at 6:00 saying Dave is busy doing more important shit would be very helpful. Thanks Dave for the part of the problem show anyhow.June 4, 2021 at 10:21 pm #992904antd36Participant
I see Dave did another show with Malice on Malice’s YouTube. Doing other people’s podcast does not count as doing an episoe of PotP. It’s three hours a week for fuck’s sake. If the schedule is overwhelming say you’re changing it to one or two days a week.June 5, 2021 at 10:22 am #993586SkanksterParticipant
Smells like cum and shit in here.July 5, 2021 at 6:04 pm #1035861odigityParticipant
I’ve been a paying subscriber for years, I’m primarily here for Part of the Problem, and I agree with the complaint.July 17, 2021 at 5:18 am #1063820Ed HarmanParticipant
I agree as well. You have a set schedule, M/W/F at six oclock. You know this is the time. It’s always the time. Your being unprofessional and taking your audience for granted. Things are getting ridiculous at G&S for a while now.July 18, 2021 at 2:36 am #1065097daveydwbParticipant
I have to wonder what his sponsors think about missing shows.July 19, 2021 at 2:49 pm #1073433Pras AliParticipant
