Calling All Junkies…

October 24, 2013 Articles 3 Comments

It seems as though the NFJ podcast has been resurrected from the dead. Over the past few days, the NFJ podcast and website has exploded with listeners.

  1. Thank you!.. Nick and I are definitely feeling the love and are beginning to realize a lot of listeners have a need that we may have inadvertently filled. Whether that need was a Netflix recommendation or just to hear two idiots babbling on like morons, every episode reducing our dignity to impossible depths. Whatever it was, you keep coming back. So, thank you.
  2. Our deepest apologies… The fans (that means you, the one reading this) continue to come back to us and it has been us that has let you down by not continuing to create great content. I use the termĀ great loosely. Bottom line, you have done your part and we have not.


We need you to sound off! Answer the following questions and be part of the potential resurrection of the Netflix Junkies.

  1. Should we come back? Do you enjoy the show? Are you an avid listener? Etc. and what not…
  2. What do you enjoy about the show? Is it the recommendations, the discussion, or simply listening to Nick and I make asses of ourselves?
  3. What can we do to make the show better? What can we do to make the website better?
  4. This is a big one. If you have recently listened to the show, let’s say in the last week, where did you find out about the show?

Answer your hearts out in the comments below. We are counting on you to shape our future. Damn, that sounded scary as hell.

Thanks for the continued love.

    1. Of course you should come back. I never understood why you left! I listened to you guys all the time!

    2. My favorite part, is you 2 discussing the movie. I like to see who’s comments I match up with more to see who I think is correct and why. It’s just fun!

    3. The thing I think you can do better is to add me to your show… Now hear me out… I know what you are thinking, why add another person? Well, I can break the tie between you 2 and I can add another perspective and dimension to your show! Just a thought… :)
    I think with the website, you should bring back the article section. I know Nick likes to write and I like to read, so…

    4. Well, this one isn’t really for me b/c I know at least 1 of you all pretty well, so I got nothing…

    You all know I was going to be the 1st person to respond. I just think this is a ton a fun and I like listening to people I respect. I love movies, even the bad ones, so I want you guys to continue!

    1. Yes, you should come back – I’m new to the show and was disappointed to find out that you’d stopped recording a while back when I started looking at the episode dates.

    2. Discussion/making asses. Really, I just enjoy you guys talking, but the lengthier movie discussions are my favorites.

    3. Start recording again, I guess?

    4. The big one: I (and I suspect a lot of the new traffic) heard about the site when it was mentioned on the AV Club’s Podmass writeup last Monday, as their weekly “Outlier” recommendation (hence why I was disappointed once I saw the date of the last recording)

    Come back and revamp.

    Cover more films and other Netflix content.

    Make the reviews shorter, and shorten the episodes, or do more reviews per episode.

    Add listener reviews (via voicemail or email) of material you are unfamiliar with, or you feel said it witty or succinctly. Solicit these reviews, and your fans will provide. Hell, I’ll throw you a one-paragraph review.

    (To paraphrase Marc Maron) Commit to a schedule, promote that schedule, and allow your listeners to anticipate your next episode. People get invested in it, and commit themselves to it.

    You guys are funny. It’s enjoyable. I would like more coverage and content.

    I heard about the show via A/V club Podmass. Listened to the latest episode, have cherry picked more to listen to.

    All of the above is just my opinion, for what that’s worth.
