We're on the Inside ;)

Hey everyone!

I'm so excited because Amanda, also known as the vicious yet irresistable Lucy, has written a post about us on the Creator's blog, Inside LG15! You can check it out
here. In it we list our top 10 favorite moments of season 2, and Amanda mentions our next podcast, which will be released after the first week of season 3.

Many thanks to the Creators, and a big HII! to everyone who's popped in from Inside!

Hi there! I got the link from inside and listened to your first show.

I like it! I might just become a regular listener? :D

... I think maybe you guys could try to be a little more articulate in your podcasts. "Everyone hated it" isn't exactly inspiring criticism towards Emma potentially having superpowers. Why is Emma having superpowers a bad idea? You should actually provide evidence in favour of your claims.

And sometimes, it feels like some of you don't actually know the meaning the words you're using. Like that hopelessly meaningless rambling about how LG15 is good because it's "plausible" and "realistic" is pretty sad. I mean, this is a series where all the characters film all the major moments of their lives and few people ever bring it up or find it odd.

LG15 is vivid, and the video blog format makes it intimate and personal, but calling it a believable representation of reality is pretty off the mark. And then there's referring to criticism of Jonas' impulsive nature as "morose" -- um, morose means gloomy and melancholy. I'm not sure "morose" applies to your complaint.

You all seem to stumble over your conversations a lot when you talk. Maybe you should write out in advance what you plan to discuss. "We'll talk about Emma having superpowers." And then each of you could write down for yourselves the individual points you want to raise, and just refer to it when you get lost, and once you've fully discussed something, you would move on to the next item.

"Now that we have Gina who was the sister of Bree. If you look at Taylor and Sarah, they're complete opposites, so we can only assume that Gina's not going to be like Bree, because, but, we probably could, because the parallel between Daniel and Bree and the whole relationship and the whole theory that maybe Dr. Hart likes Gina but Gina's probably going to act the same way."

... that means absolutely nothing. It's stating an opinion, then the opposite, then the original opinion again with an unrelated fact. And it's pretty typical of what is to be found in your podcast.

Hey everyone. I deleted the little argument that occured here...what happened was totally uncalled for. Ibrahim, I appreciate your honesty, and I, along with the other hosts, will bring up some of your points in our next podcast. I'm sorry that this whole event happened...but thank you for your critique.

Hi.

I'd like to apologize for starting an argument. In a deleted response, Jennie Powell said that I wasn't particularly kind in my critique. And I think I should've been a lot nicer and more encouraging. I think the enthusiasm you guys have for doing a podcast is pretty obvious, even if the presentation could be a bit more practiced and refined. And it was a first effort, and these things take time to work out. And maybe you don't aspire to professional standards; maybe you're just a bunch of friends who have talks about LG15 and wanted to record one of them, and there's nothing wrong with that.

So, I'm sorry I upset Christian and I'm sorry for insulting him. I hope you guys keep doing podcasts. I'll definitely listen and I promise to dial down the acidity if I ever comment on them.

I do not appreciate my comments being deleted without permission. This is something I feel very strongly about. Especially since you edited the words of one of the hosts of your show, which I think was important for the community to be aware of.

I can understand feeling like you needed to squelch this but in the future, I would very much appreciate the respect of being asked before my thoughts are deleted. I have been attempting to reach out to you since I first heard of your existence and when things like this happen, it makes me not want to help anymore. I'd much rather you just tell me you don't want my help and I can be done with it.
