Freaked out by the podcast.
Last night I was walking through a quiet dark inner city residential street with my headset on chilling out listening to the sweet dulcet tones of a Noah Lugeons diatribe. A very relaxed evening walk in anticipation of a nice meal and an ale to end the day.

Then suddenly I heard a sharp voice behind me, then another. Then noise and loud music. I startled and turned so abruptly my middle-aged neck and back complained considerably.

I must have inadvertently caused my podcast app to skip to the next queued up podcast which was The Thinking Atheist. Despite being a long time listener, the first few seconds of the intro coming suddenly and unexpectedly at a volume using much more of available headroom scared the living crap out of me!!!

Had anybody else been observing my little silent dance of surprise in the street last night they would have thought me to be batshit crazy.

Long time listener, first time poster from Melbourne, Australia.

Welcome! I have not had anything like that happen to me. Mostly because I rarely go outside. Sounds scary though.

I've heard the same about the outside. It is scary. 0/10, don't recommend.

Also, welcome, newcomer! Smile

Hullo and welcome, drinks are in the fridge. Make sure you don't let any of them deadly Australian lifeforms follow you through the door.
