Episode 36: From GAB To FNA
Play Now!It's only been two episodes since I discussed the twin phenomena of the Repetition Effect and Source Amnesia, but months have passed since that release. Time, then, to visit a comment listener L33t left concerning research on how interruptions may increase the enjoyment of media, even if those interruptions are commercial in nature. Thus, Episode 36: From GAB to FNA explores the multiple qualities of interruptions that may mitigate, thus driving people from welcoming interruption to dreading it.In this episode, I quote: L33t from his comments; the study L33t shared; details of the organization that published the research he shared; and information from Counterspin regarding the frequency of DVR commercial skipping (something I regrettably neglected to cite in the audio).I also played: Geddy Lee briefly singing with the Mackensie Brothers in their 80s hit, "Take Off;" some wisdom from Colonel Jack D. Ripper about communism and water; and Pink Floyd's intro to their song, "Time." Dmitri Orlov and KMFDM open this episode.
