Snow Plow Show – June 30th, 2014 – Man Meat
This episode of The Snow Plow Show is brought to you by Michael L. Thanks, Michael L! This will be our first attempt at doing a show at the higher bitrate of 320kbps. Let us know what you think by voting below.
- If you want to browse the brand new PLA media archive thing, go to phonelosers.org/media
- Man Meat by MC Shammers
- Do they not say “dependents” in Canada??
- Listen to Laugh Track Matt & Zax tonight! The show starts at 7pm Pacific. mixlr.com/ltm-party-time
- Pay The Price by Deltron 3030
- I removed the poll from here (a few days later) because it was a giant mess of cheating voters, but most people seem to want to keep things how they are and have a separate feed for high quality audio. So that will happen soon. The show archive page will have both 128kb and 320kb versions of the show from now on.

Obviously people would prefer separate feeds but if that’s too hard stick to 64; it’s not worth the file size.
Wow a whole half hour :/ …..
RB we love you, please do what you feel comfortable. the pranks are just as funny in 64 as they are in 320, or even FLAC.
Aw, thanks RJ. I want to provide the quality feed if people want it. It’s a regular complaint I’ve gotten over the years. I’m playing around with the PodPress options right now, trying to see how I should do it. It’s not that much extra effort to make 2 different show files. Just gotta figure out the feed thing.
Yeah, that’s way better than before. Personally I’m not having any problems with buffering, but I guess if anyone’s internet is complete garbage there could be an issue. 320 is probably overkill though, I vote 192 personally with a separate download if possible.
Would 192kbps be a noticeable difference from 320kbps? It’s definitely a much better file size – 80 megs vs. 133 megs. But if everyone wants 320, I’d do 320.
Probably, but it would be better than 128kbps. If you don’t care about bandwidth then yeah, just do 320. It’s 2014, we should be able to have some fucking overhead goddamnit!! Really funny show, the wheelchair kid and carting out the ice cream machine was great.
How about 128kbps/192kbps AAC instead MP3?
I don’t really care about bitrate, not even sure what that is. I’d prefer you went back to doing live shows than worry about audio quality.
Did you randomly speed up your talking or is that just me?
I have to listen to this show on here as the podcast won’t work goddam it and because your website is classified as adult humour i can use my work internet to stream so I am using my mobile data. It’s just a cluster fuck of fucks.
Lol I don’t care though I love you RBCP and I don’t hear much difference between the quality of this show and any of the other shows you do.
Ben, have you re-tried recently? Now that all the sound files are on phonelosers.COM/media it may work! The actual podcast feed is still on phonelosers.org, but maybe…
I tried through iTunes about an hour ago with no luck maybe it’s my stupid iPhone machine. I will try and download it on my iPad tonight it’s all good though I listened to it from the website was a good show.
Wonder if I could maybe mask blah.notla.com to phonelosers.com/media and then mask the podcast feed to something on notla.com too. Would that fool the content filters?
It’s no prob RBCP don’t do some just for me I am only one person anyway I can down load the podcast on my home PC and then just put them on the iPhone manually it’s no drama :)
Honestly, I’m with you Brad in that I don’t notice a difference in the sound quality. If its going to cost you money or make for alot of extra work, stick with what you have. I’m gratefull that we get the show in any form.
tbh pre recorded shows are way better than live shows
I always miss live shows anyway
The following 3 shows are not working on the podcast feed (on the iPhone podcast app):
But maybe it doesn’t matter because we can just listen to them on the website instead.
I went to school for audio and ill tell you, the difference in bit rates isn’t noticable. At least to most people.
To those of you complaining that the quality is too low, you’re jaded. Go listen to the older PLA stuff and then listen to anything else. You won’t care after that. Brad is funny as fuck at any bit rate.
I liked your idea of broadcasting in 128kbps stereo; that sounds like a good compromise. I thought that this one sounded better than earlier shows, but really I think it was because it was in stereo more so than the higher bitrate. Also, the small file size is a benefit that shouldn’t be overlooked. It seems weird to be voting for stereo over mono, though; Maybe next you should try broadcasting in color!
Lastly, thanks for that closing song! I had no idea there was another Deltron3030 album out and I actually went out and paid real money for it after listening to the show. Despite your antecedent cautions about that being maybe the only good song, even.
I really enjoyed the new Deltron 3030 album, so I’m not saying that’s the only good track on it. That’s just the only one that I like enough to keep on my phone and listen to it often. The rest of the album was great, just not as great as the original.
Ben, is Stitcher.com blocked at your yob? This feed seems to be pretty up-to-date:
Arch angel you are a legend stitcher works at my work I can listen to them on there no doubt they will block it though when they see people streaming audio from it but that’s great I can listen to all the shows from there
Gold stars for you ding ding ding
Thanks, ArchAngel. Somehow those 3 episodes didn’t get uploaded. I’m uploading them now.
I tried to download the July 4th show on my iphone and it told me that it was too large to download and I needed to be connected to the wifi
You won’t have to worry about buffering if you download it first you fucking n00bs.
