Previous Entry My Serious Sirius Problem Apr. 25th, 2006 @ 10:51 pm Next Entry
I got a message to contact Sirius Satellite Radio OutQ 106 for an interview to promote BearWatch on Bear Talk. Our committee agreed that I'll do interview.

I got Steve Small (producer of Bear Talk) on the phone. We talked for a moment:
Steve Small: You have an accent. We've had problems before with people having accents coz they sometimes can't be understood.
Me: So you want someone with a Southern accent (since this is TX)
SS: Yeah. That would be good. Can we have someone else in your committee?

There's really more... a lot more.

Tune in to BearPodcast Episode 60 that will come out soon. This is gonna be one hell of an episode where we'll tackle some discrimination issues.

If possible, you should arrange it so that the next 2 or 3 people to check in with Sirius for your committee have a non-Southern accent also.

That's not cool. Good for you for putting it in the show. Make 'em pay for being radio bigots!

That's fucked up.
Fuck that guy from Sirius, They are trying to jump on the bear wagon with there shitty ass bear talk. You have been around a lot longer then they have, they should be asking to be on your show.
I have serious issues with bear talk anyway. I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say.

The more I've run this around in my head the more incensed I become. You have an accent, I heard it in Dallas. So what? In fact, listening to your podcasts, I've never had difficulty understanding you. Heck, I had no trouble understanding you in a crowded and noisy bar. Where does this guy get off looking for someone with less of an accent?!? Honesly, this smacks of passive racism to me. I'm looking forward to your podcast to see if it's what I think it's about.

(And honestly, I enjoy listening to your voice, sir. It's a very pleasing accent to my ear.)

Patrick told me about this, and it irked me to no end. Just who do they think they are? Stupid Sirius Radio. Viva la XM!!! (Channel 110 is neat.)
