200 (!): Dead Internet Theory and the Great DYR Siesta

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

Well ladies and germs, the day hath cometh. We are officially at our 200th episode, and like any great time-based achievement, we relish in our past while reflecting on our increasingly deflating future. So to celebrate, we go full Ranch Dressing Studios energy and discuss a bunch of semi-related Internet things, eventually landing on a concept we've been thinking a lot about called the Dead Internet Theory, which basically suggests that all of us are constantly manipulated by bots, none of us really have control over our own thoughts, and the Internet is tool of mass-control that we've all bought into. It's a sick theory that's probably not true, but also maybe it is.


And because of all this, we've decided to take a hiatus too. We're all super busy, so we want to just think a bit about how we're going to do the next 200, and the 200 after that, and 200 after that. Maybe we won't come back. Maybe we will come back super soon. Maybe we'll option off the podcast to the Marvel universe. Either way, it's been a good ride. Seeya on the other side - Harambe says 'sup?'.

    198: r/throawaylien - So Tom Delonge was right all along huh?

    1:04:55

    This week, we discuss a bit of famous Reddit lore - u/throawaylien - who claimed in 2013 that they had a history of credible alien abductions and that July 2021 would be when aliens finally made themselves known. Well, July 2021 came and went, but we did have a lot of alien chatter around that time. So what's the deal? Was this person just doing some clever LARP stuff? Is the government in cahoots with the greys? Was Tom Delonge right all along? We don't really have answers to any of these questions, but we spend an hour talking about it anyway.---Join us, and DYR podsquad all-stars such as yelletwin and PhilipJFry on https://www.twitch.tv/didyoureddit to hear (and see) us live.

    197: r/blaseball, how sports fandoms work, and why something this confusing is so fun

    1:20:16

    Listen, we love splorts on this pod, as you may have noticed by now, and there's no better splort than the galaxy's interdimensional pastime, Blaseball. You may have heard us briefly talk about Blaseball on a recent FPR, totally ignorant to the profound nature of this sport, but after spending a few days fully invested, we decided to spend the full episode trying to break down what it is exactly that we love so much about this bizarre Internet phenomenon. So, this episode we talk about how Blaseball started, the basic rules, and our POV on what makes this whole thing so fun, despite virtually every element of it being almost impossible to follow. ---Join us, and DYR podsquad all-stars such as yelletwin and PhilipJFry on https://www.twitch.tv/didyoureddit to hear (and see) us live.

    195: Front Page Review - Jeff's Wein Rocket, Reddit Statistics, and improving the rules of baseball

    1:16:37

    It's time to get back to a nice little Front Page Review. With week 2, back in Ranch Dressing Studios, we decided to take a look back at some of the goods from this past week's front page, starring our sweet baby boy Jeff Bezos, some quite frankly expected NSFW subs, and guest starring Blaseball, some sort of dramatic improvement on the sport of baseball.

    194: r/howtonotgiveafuck and the return to Ranch Dressing Studios

    1:24:56

    It's a big day ladies and germs and theys - we are BACK in Ranch Dressing Studios for the first time in about 2 years, and the show is definitely better, way more candid, and u/itsyerdad did way less editing out of our dumb stuff. Why? Because today we're covering r/howtonotgiveafuck, something we actively try to do on a daily basis, but at least one of us fails to do so. ---Join us, and DYR podsquad all-stars such as timmypbass and PhilipJFry on https://www.twitch.tv/didyoureddit to hear (and see) us live.

    Today we discuss the full timeline of Britney's bizarre pop-cultural fall from grace, conservatorship struggles, and quest to be a just be a good mom. Plus, the r/freebritney subreddit is a great resource for broadly understanding the complex discussions around mental health, volition, and the problems with caring too much about celebrities. ---Join us, and DYR podsquad all-stars such as CASEY K and PhilipJFry on https://www.twitch.tv/didyoureddit to hear (and see) us live.

    192: r/structuralengineering, using Reddit to make sense of catastrophe, and The Cosby show is back (ugh)

    1:41:12

    There's been a lot of wild news over the last week or so. John McAfee, the Internet's favorite weirdo, died in a Spanish prison. Bill Cosby was released from prison on a legal technicality it seems. However, the biggest news is the collapse of an expensive high-rise apartment on Miami Beach that will go down as one of the first great tragedies of our increasingly corrupt and outdated infrastructure system. To help make sense of how this could have happened, and understand some of what Sleepy Joe is talking about when he talks about infrastructure reform, we turn to r/structuralengineering, a genuine resource and home for engineers in pursuit of a safer world through the addition of columns. ---Join us, and DYR podsquad all-stars such as YelleTwin and PhilipJFry on https://www.twitch.tv/didyoureddit to hear (and see) us live.

    191: r/royalsgossip goes PRIVATE, snark subs, and why do we even care about these people anyway?

    1:32:43

    Well we WERE going to talk about r/royalsgossip, but in a hilarious twist of fate, the sub went private in short time period between when we decided to talk about it, and when we actually recorded. So in this episode, we speculate on why the sub might have gone private, why snark corners of the internet (and the grocery store isle) are so captivating, and why in queen's name do we even care about the royal family in the first place?---Join us, and DYR podsquad all-stars such as YelleTwin and PhilipJFry on https://www.twitch.tv/didyoureddit to hear (and see) us live.
