I'm not a fan of these bloggers either (I've commented why in other threads about them, when they went viral on some Canadian news sites and it got threads started here).
Besides some of the content, they're much to "sales-y" for me. They're very concerned with pushing themselves and marketing themselves, and less concerned with quality.
That being said, I'm even more not a fan of FUD/incorrect information.
The racist comment was the worst. Wow, completely uncalled for.
I'm assuming this is referring to (what sounded like) the "white man" comment, which actually was "white van"
I haven't listened to the podcast, but it gets explained pretty clearly in the comments to the MadFIentist blog post about the podcast, here: http://www.madfientist.com/millennial-revolution-interview/
Some white van hit their car, and since then they've been ranting and posting blog posts about a "white van" as an ongoing joke. Some people heard this in the podcast as "white man" and got (understandably) upset. But I think it's clear that they meant white van, given the blog post about a white van made weeks (months?) ago, before the podcast was made.
Plenty of stuff to criticize them about, IMO. OP brings up a few, I've brought up other stuff. But this isn't a legitimate complaint, IMO, just a misunderstanding, so I wanted to clear that up.
Also, as an aside, I'm probably glad I'm not hearing what people think of my podcast on there, because I'm sure I sounded pretty dumb at times (someone reminded me I went on about the movie Tangled
, lol). ;)
