Opie Radio Podcast

That can't be real.

Reruns? He just takes an old podcast, and he puts it up like "Here's this week's podcast!"

I swear, I've never seen any other podcast do that. That is utterly retarded.

Opie is the worst podcaster ever. I mean, maybe his shows aren't the worst of all podcasts, but even the shittiest podcasters know the nuts and bolts of podcasting better than Opie.

Opie takes a 1990's college campus FM radio format, and he stuffs it into a podcast with a sledgehammer and a crowbar.
He cannot shake the commercial radio thought process.

Remember that Opie and Luis J back and forth a while back? Luis did Opie's show and it went well. Then Luis asked Opie to do his podacsts and Opie never responded (I'm not 100% sure about this but I think it's the case) which is weird and unprofessional.

Luis tweeted this yesterday...


He just refuses to do other shows. If he doesn't care about growing his pod, which I find hard to believe, then I get it but I think we all know the reason.

I'll say this, Opie's behavior still intrigues me.
Opie is incapable of being honest, which is a bit of a requirement for a successful podcast.

I think you have to be at least one of the three things:

1. Funny
2. Interesting
3. Honest

Ronnie B gets away with not being honest because he's funny and interesting. Opie's funny every once in a a while but he's almost never interesting or honest.

I’ve been accused of hating Opie for years. I really do not hate Opie, the same way I don’t hate Frank.

I think Opie realizes that he could very easily become Scorch or the Greaseman. He is making a conscious effort to stay under the radar. I also feel that he is hoping his little underground pod cast will have a cult lile following. He is waiting for that one clip, incident or interview that will make him go viral.

Opie is doing his thing, his way. In his mind he accomplished a lot, and that is true for the most part. He has plenty of money and is hanging around and if an opportunity presents itself he may jump back in, or he may not. Either way he is doing what he is doing on his terms.

How long will his ego keep him going when it becomes clear that he's not building any sort of audience, isn't making any money, and never will make any money?

How long will he keep devoting uncompensated work to his podcast just to keep up the charade that he's a successful podcaster?

If Vos and Bonnie are any indicator, he'll keep it up for a very long time.

Pretty sure even Vos and Bonnie have more listeners.

Can he really be that bad? Could it be that he thinks he's doing a longform bit and everyone else is playing along?

Exactly. The irony of him repeating, "Howard's a hack who couldn't adapt," ad nauseam back in the early XM days hits me every time he does something so obviously out of touch.

I've seen guys like this on a smaller scale on forums.

I’m honestly surprised he’s lasted this long self funding it.
