Episode 443 - sticks and stones

Sep 9, 2019

Based on Banes' newspost about the latest Dave Chappelle comedy special, this Quackcast talks about the way audience reception to it has been somewhat divided based on the topics covered verses current prevailing attitudes and the so-called “outrage culture”

Topics and Show Notes

We broaden things a bit to talk about the so-called PC culture and what it really means: ie There are many people who's main motivation is to work positively to make sure others are included and supported, especially people who were traditionally excluded or marginalised. Then there are others who find a sort of pleasure in using the structure of “PC” as a weapon to attack their perceived enemies, making them into strawmen and performing ad hominem attacks on them. We discuss how that tendency has the potential to make them just as bad as those they revile: the end doesn't justify the means.

Culture does change though and we have to keep up with what's right and what's not. This isn't a new thing- Just because we grew up with and were used to certain attitudes as children it doesn't mean those attitudes are right and normal and will never change.

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to ArGH ZoMBiE - really fricken bloody creepy!!!! Haunting, futuristic, and… cute. I’m not quite sure how that’s possible. Listen and be astounded by this interestingly impossible mix and try not to get too creeped out. Keep the lights on!

Skool has temporarily reformed from her evil ways to come onto the Quackcast with Banes and Ozoneocean to talk about some changes to the newsposting and feature schedule. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *WITH SLIGHTLY LESS TRAFFIC to the site we think it’s better to give one feature an entire week’s focus and spotlight to get as much attention as possible, having it on Wednesday makes sense because it’s the middle of the week, Skool and I will both try and give a bit of a take on the week's feature, if not in the blurb, certainly on the Quackcast! And please remember to give us your feature suggestions! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *MONDAY NEWSPOSTS are now Skool’s space: Monday will be her place for posting her unique brand of skoolness...fun, interesting personality blog posts, not just standard news posts necessarily! Skool is in charge of our Tublr thing, but she also posts a whole lot of her own stuff in her Tumblr accounts. She can bring some of that picture flavoured magic to the newsposts instead to entertain with her personality, give the site more of a face. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *THURSDAY'S NEWSPOSTS will be Ozoneocean's pale reflection of Skool's magnificent greatness. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *FRIDAYS ARE A NORMAL NEWSPOSTING DAY, but we're going to widen what can go up for DD member newsposts! NOT just 25 page milestones. now we'd like you to tell us about uupcoming projects, news about special things like a comic being published, or comic having special coverpages or crossovers or other newsworthy stuff so we can get the word out and advertise your work for you! Even things like New character introductions, Introductions of new comics that’re just starting, Clever ads for long running already established webcomics or related items like comic Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, Youtube, twitter accounts etc. As long as it's not spammy we'd like to know about it!
