These Guys Gotta Go

These stations earned their high trust ratings decades ago, and now they’re being cannibalized by corporations that are unaccountable to their local audiences.

Someone should start a new media company that breaks up their stranglehold on local audio and video content.

FFS: Getting to Know You, André Bearfield and Andy Spletzer

Four-Finger Shotguns is Zip! Bang! Wow’s satyrical take on the internet, technology, and podcasting. This is the first installment in a possible format change, or perhaps the evolution of a format that was started a long time ago.

Our guests this week are André Bearfield and Andy Spletzer who both work with Jonnie on various and sundry Zip! Bang! Wow! projects and enterprises. Conversation topics include Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, Personal Social Media Policy, Hillary Clinton, Australian Siri, and Fake News.

Back in the olden days, Jonnie used to write a column in The Stranger called “Inside & Out”, which was ostensibly about the production of the newspaper each week. At the time, Jonnie had quite a few hobbies outside the newspaper publishing field, including software development, and used the extra space in the Staff Box for a last-minute, unedited (because the editors had all long-gone home by the time it was written) techno-culture column.

It’s something Jonnie had always dreamed of doing, and so having done it, was sad when they left The Stranger and it couldn’t be done professionally anymore.

Some say, in whispered voices, that very day coincides with the exact same day that The Stranger started sucking.

But now, Jonnie seizes on this opportunity to reassert themselves (along with the liberal use of third-person pronouns and references) into the technology conversation in modern-day, cyberpunk Seattle and continue a long-running, irrational nerd-fetish with the erstwhile Puget Sound Computer User newspaper.
