    Radio Star is already dead and buried, but Video’s knife is still wet with blood? Who else did Video kill?

        Books seem just fine? Also, attention span was just fine until the last 10 years or so with certain apps in phones, no?

      Maybe it’s still Radio Star’s blood and they just did the funeral and burial very quickly

      It was the 80s, so I’m going to guess it was homeless people.

      It’s already happened. So…

      Podcasts dug up the radio star.

      Podcasts dug up the radio star.

    Is radio dead now? Aren’t podcasts dead now too? Isn’t it all youtube vids now? What is even happening?

    You kids get off my…um…media…

      Nah, everyone is doing podcasts. There’s just no good way to find the good ones. There are a few podcast cooperative like Relay and Max Fun that have several good ones.

        I would say it’s actually pretty easy to find a handful of good ones. Go to the top downloaded podcasts and you’ll get Stuff You Should Know, Behind The Bastards, a couple of Max Fun podcasts etc. its when you want a podcast on your specific hobby or niche interest where it falls off a cliff.

      Well, this might be personal experience, but imo, radiohosts and bands on the radio used to affect me a whole lot more before. Now it’s more youtubers and hot music videos on YouTube.

      Even just with MTV being popular there was way more incentive to have not just a song, but a music video of it, so you could possibly get it on TV as well.

      So I get how “video killed the radio star” would be a thing. But now that podcasts are quite in (for like the last decade or something idk), you could have those legendary radio hosts again.

    I can’t make out the artist signature, is this from Shen?

    Edit:oop it’s been updated. Op is good.

      I think it is. Looks like it says “Shen Comix”, but it’s badly cropped.

    Is this about true crime podcasts digging up old stories of murders for clicks, or is this saying that podcasters are the new radio stars, capable of becoming famous just from people listening to their voice?

      The second one. Also the first panel is a reference to the song ‘video killed the radio star’ which was a commentary that musicians suddenly needed to be attractive to make it big.

    have to work in some lyrics about throwing the VCR in the emptied grave.

      Or maybe pirates reclaim the VCR because streaming services turned into the Cable monster?

      This doesn’t show Video being killed, so it’s still possible.

    This was true for a brief period but the podcast bubble popped a decade ago

    The artist’s name is cropped out so I can’t even go see when it was made…hopefully not recently

      Found it with this bad crop, but I’ve just added the artist credit to the post body.
