Think he forgets he reads an autocue on a tele for a living and isn't actually an elite sportsman, but they do get good guests and talk about some interesting stuff. The Steve Clarke one the other week was good.

Will give it another try.

When Jake moved from childrens newsround to F1, he was such a good presenter, learning his trade beside David Coulthard, Brundle and Eddie Jordan.

Now he thinks he's Tony Montana since hanging about with footballers on BT Sport. Actually want to burst him.

(He did set up his own production company, tbf, it was DC that got him into showing you can be more than a presenter, DC owns his own production company too now and runs the channel 4 F1 coverage). He's basically a shit, more arrogant David Coulthard and talentless at sport.

Didn’t Coulthard help him set up the production company? Seems to be a common comeback to him that his self made patter is actually a lot of shite because he’s been given a leg up and hand outs to get where he is mainly from DC but never bothered to look too much into it.

Although DC at that time was also in his entrepreneurial infancy, but of course a millionaire from his race days and had built up good networks over his time in the sport and as commentator.

Tbf to go from bbc newsround presenter to popular lead F1 anchor is decent and then yeah you will come across millionaire/billionaire entrepreneurs routinely in that sport that can give you a leg up.

The bbc f1 coverage of Jake, Eddie, DC and Lee Mackenzie with Brundle and DC on comms and Ted in the paddock was pinnacle F1 coverage.

Sky with Johnny Herbert, Damon Hill, Paul di resta and the others always feels a bit Ladz Ladz Ladz and bias/group think towards the Anglo teams and drivers. Quite like Karun Chandhok though.

Ironically the reason Jake was popular on F1 coverage was his humility and affability.

Now on BT he manspreads in his chair being a wideo to “Lamps, Rio and Stevie G” and being a snidey cunt to the general public. Weird one.

Definitely one day decided to adopt the Gary Vee style of living and had a personality change as a result. #grindset

Sacked in the morning with Amy Irons and Craig Levein is decent tbh.

Quite funny. You forget that Levein is actually capable of having a laugh Warnock

I thought that too tbh, but it is decent. They get different managers on most weeks to discuss a certain topic about managing. Some of the stories they tell are class Warnock

Levein isn't shy on montetising wee stories that others would shirk from so it is interesting. Along with his "Regrets? It was a good laugh wasn't it" patter.


The only thing that is annoying is he often rips himself for employing himself as manager at Hearts and being pish at it.

I'm listening to it like "lol we got relegated and you wasted fans millions on contracts for your mates haha so funny"  Oh Cleese

Blindboy Podcast in glesga tonight. GodIsGod

Fucking Darren McGarvey as the interview guest. Wiggo

What a mediocrity, and I just don't believe him. His current class warrior shtick comes across as a either a grift or a well read higher modern studies student. I'm all for democratising political theory but he brings nothing to the table that's original and all that's left is facile research to be parroted.

Enough about me though, loki is a cunt.

Still, delighted to share a room with blindboy. What bill hicks was to my teens he is to my 30s.

Blindboy good guy.

Something untrustworthy about that Loki guy but he's a libs wet dream because they get a sado-masochistic rush off being scolded by him.  Can't say that there is something off about Loki publicly though as you just get accused of hating schemies

I was thinking about it walking back from the gig, and one of my biggest gripes is that he's like a 2nd year politics student who has absorbed information but never really assessed it and is just spewing it out - but in his case with a working class accent. I'm middle class and take going to uni and having that experience for granted, and now i'm middle aged too and resent that character. Maybe for lots of people he's a gateway to better thinkers and my privilege means i'm being unfair.

But he's woefully out his depth in even a very basic conversation about marxism and i can't believe there isn't a better working class representative out there. And you're right, he is untrustworthy. He'll have a different cause in five years time and a different book/documentary to sell and i don't feel he really believes in any of it.

As someone from the schemes, I can say that I think Loki is an absolute fake. He’s just grifting his working class hero persona for all it’s worth, and like 2na has suggested, he’ll move on to something else soon.

I don’t trust him one iota and I genuinely hate how much kudos his absolute shite opinions get.

The narrative around Darren McGarvey seems to be that he knows how to speak to working-class people, but it's not at all clear to me that that's even true - as far as I've seen, his biggest fans seem to be middle-class liberals who love the idea of an organic intellectual.

I guess I'm in a similar position to 2na in that I don't want to rubbish his takes for not looking sophisticated to me, someone with a PhD in the humanities (aware of how much of a dick it makes me sound when I say that btw), but the way he'll seem to latch onto whatever's trendy to the point of directly contradicting himself reminds me a bit of a Scottish Joe Rogan at times. It's not about dismissing a working-class/non-uni educated perspective, or at least I hope not, so much as that his lived experience doesn't seem to inform his takes in any interesting way - he's just parroting less developed versions of the lines those uni-educated types are using.

Always torn to an extent on the left-wing media grifters - I think most of the left voices we hear in the media are grifters to some degree, but that doesn't mean they aren't doing something useful by countering the right-wing grifters. Still something that doesn't sit right about it, though. Would put others like Bastani, Sarkar etc in a similar category.
