    Default Kate, Tim and Marty

    Does anyone listen to these guys on the radio? Is it just me or are the boys really horrible to Kate Ritchie? I feel like they undermine everything she says. They act like it's a joke but I think the way they speak to her and about her is really horrible. Especially Tim who seems like he is trying to one up Marty on the joke front. Just bad taste.
    Rant over...for now!

    Yeah I've noticed that too and it's actually made me change the station. Kate seems so lovely, and they talk over her and tear shreds off everything she says, as a 'joke' of course, but it's not funny.

    Aside from that I changed stations because all tim & marty go on about are their stupid in-jokes! They think they're hilarious but no one else gets what they're on about...

    Yep and I've stopped listening although Kate voice has always annoyed me a little bit, when she shrieks at the guys it's awful!

    Yes! I only flick it on to that station when I'm about to pick up DD, as triple J have too much swearing and DD likes their poppy music, but it was particularly bad today. They were just telling her "stop talking, just stop! Stop talking" but I'd barely heard her say 4 words in the 5 minutes they'd been yammering on about mind numbing nothing. It is all so "have a sense of humour, Kate", but they're just not being funny.

    Oh I hate that show. I quote like Kate but she seems like a lamb to the slaughter with those two. Meshel was much better able to verbally slap them down.

    I particularly dislike Tim. They invite people to call in and participate in the show and then belittle them and cut them off or hang up on them if they don't have good delivery. These are regular people, not seasoned media people or comedians. Don't ask people to phone in if you intend to disrespect them. Grrrrrrr.

    This exactly! It's just so superior and smug! I always feel bad for the people they do it to. It makes me cringe!

    My theory is that Meshel left because they were horrible to her too. She never got a word in. Now that she is on in the morning it's so much better, she is so funny and doesn't need those half wits!

    Yes! I always wonder why people call in when they're invariably belittled and hung up on. I used to listen for Meshell because I think she's fab, but can't stand it now.

    I find the boys irritating too. They're mean just for the sake of it and it's not funny. I don't really know what they're on about half the time. They pick on Kate when she tells stories but at least hers make some sense. And I hate the whole "sisters" thing they do whenever Kate says anything about another woman, making out that saying anything that's not 100% positive automatically means she's being b!tchy and catty.

    At least Meshell could hold her own, Kate just gets shut down all the time.
