Welcome to Just curious media. This is let's talk Cobra Kai. I'm Jason Connell.
And I'm Sal Rodriguez.
All right sound we are back for another fan appreciation episode, volume four.
I'm very grateful because you know what, I never thought that we would have so much feedback from our listeners to warrant 123. Now for episodes. I mean, you know, we are giving our fans appreciation because our fans give appreciation to us. I love that reciprocal nature. I really love that feedback. I love that interactivity.
As do I sell as do I. So you've got to give credit where credit's due. And we've gotten a few new Patreon supporters, and a couple new Apple podcast reviews came in. So I figured, hey, why wait, we'll do this one. It might be shorter than the others, but we'll be caught up and people can get the pat on the back the accolades they deserve. Because we appreciate it. So so very much.
Yeah. And so we want to give you a shout out since you gave us a shout out. You say hi to us, we say hi back. Yeah.
So we'll start with the patreon supporters to have come in. And I'm super excited.
I'm, I'm very happy to speak I really, I really, I'm speechless. This makes me very happy. I've I'm near tears here. I really mean that
I was so touched. So you know, mentioning something, putting it out there in the universe. Messages are heard, and now it's a reality. And I want to thank them. And of course we have two original Patreon members and I might as well give them a quick shout out as well. Lindsey Bebout she joined March 28 2021. Jason Kersey joined April 28 2021. One of our newest members, machete nice love the name, joined June 16 2021. Machete that is that classic character. Oh, yeah. And then we have Brian Ron fuller. And he joined June 23 2021. So we have three levels. And Sal, Would you remind us what levels we have?
Strike first, strike hard. No mercy.
And so Lindsay, of course was strike first, Jason machete and Brian are all strike hard. So we are still waiting for our first no mercy.
I gotta I gotta convince somebody to be a no mercy and then they get to be the first one. They get to be the first no mercy patreon supporters of Let's Talk Cobra Kai, Who could that be? My sister listens to our podcast. I know she does. Maybe she could be the first no mercy subscriber maybe
the first one that does it. Well let them end one episode with the classic,
no mercy. Oh, no, be great. I will give them that privilege.
So that's our new Patreon supporters. Thank you all so very, very much. Hey, big
thanks to our new Patreon supporters. Thank you so much.
So now, so I just want to get into the to Apple podcast review. So we were caught up through May however, there was one from the UK that was in may sound sometimes reviews outside of North America, they don't come in like the others, and you have to search for them. And I found that after we'd already done the last fan appreciation episode, which was volume three. So we're gonna give a shout out to that supporter, as well as the one apple podcast five star review that we got in June. So that's it just two more to cover. But hey, we're elated that we have this mini and salary are currently at 113 ratings. And we're holding that 4.8 Sometimes some websites rounded up to 5.0. But we're really doing amazing, and we just need more people to hit those five stars. It takes what how long does it take style? nanosec facsimile?
Yeah, approximately a nanosecond depends on how much dexterity you have in your index finger.
I missed I hit a one. No, don't do that. Take your time, be sure.
As far as Apple podcasts, maybe similar to YouTube likes or YouTube comments where they have to be verified, like they want to make sure they're not bots. So like, for example, when I look at my YouTube profile, and I see numbers of us climbing, that's behind the scenes, it may not match what the viewer sees public, right? Because I believe all these comments and likes and all these ratings, they all have to be verified. So that Apple knows it's not Sal and Jason. Clicking over and over and over again.
You bring up a really good point. So and I've actually heard from a couple of fans that they have tried to leave an apple podcast review, and I'm assuming it would have been a five star review. But they've tried they've reached out to us on social media and said they write it and Apple has not posted it yet. So maybe they have their special way of verifying or your email changed or so they are very big on protection and identity. And it's even hard to get over that hurdle. So For all you fans that are executed flawlessly and getting through Apple's hoops to do so, we love it. And for those that have tried and failed, that sucks. We have a couple of saying, Hey, here's the review. We just want to put it up there. So, you know, sometimes it doesn't work. So maybe there's another outlet we can steer people to to do so. You know, because you were asking me the other day Sal like, Hey, do other platforms do ratings? And I know there are some other ones that are beginning to do that, or others that offer it. It's just apples like this the biggest player in the space?
Yeah, like I was on a Google podcast the other day looking for reviews. And I didn't see any I mean, I don't think that they have that option.
Yeah, they may not have that capability. I'm not sure. But as this market begins to evolve and explode the way it is, I'm assuming that'll become more and more prevalent, but Apple will still be the behemoth in the space. So for those of you who have not been on there yet, just keep trying maybe contact apple. They're actually really good at support. But anyway, we have two here. We're elated to have themselves so let's jump in. The first one is from oh you miles. Now Sal, I'm pretty sure he's referring to Oklahoma University Sooners.
Interesting? Well, the miles is not a part of the Sooners. That's maybe his name.
Exactly. My belief. But hey, let's go with it.
Is that where you went to school?
I went to OSU but I grew up a big fan of O U and in recent years. I have really embraced my fan hood to the centers. Nice. Okay. So here we go. Subject Matter is Jason and Sal. The best around
you're the best. Nice Little
Joe Esposito, I like that sounds great rendition. They're a very entertaining podcast for any fan of movies and 80s nostalgia. Hopefully you can get an interview with chosen Yugi Nakamoto. From Karate Kid to kudos to you both and keep up the good work. Tremendous exclamation point.
Very nice. I'd love to talk to chosen. That'd be so much fun. You know before we got involved in let's talk Cobra Kai, ug had done some fan content some some fan made films, where he reprise his role as chosen, along with Kumiko Tamlyn Tomita, in fact, there's a video on YouTube with Yugi Okamoto and Tamlyn Tomita kind of reprising their role in pranks on
people. Yeah, it
was a fan made film look really great. It's kind of lost in the shuffle now, but we might visit at some point.
While we'd love to get him Oh, you miles we have definitely reached out. But sometimes you have to circle back around a lot of people weren't doing interviews before Season Three came out. So we will see but thank you so so very much for your kind words. We love being the best around first of all, I love what you said about fan of movies and 80s nostalgia. That's right in our wheelhouse. Sal. And yeah, thank you so very much for all your kudos Your shout out means the world to us.
And hey, oh, you miles. Let us know if Jason is correct. Do you really mean Oklahoma University or is Jason just imagining that so let us know.
Okay, so why don't you do the honors of the second and last one of this episode.
This next one is from Jay wattage of the UK. Interesting name wattage.
I know I like that. Yeah, I mean, that's the coin and the UK. Yeah, there's
a lot of electricity there. Subjects a great show. The show is great. And you can tell they love the Karate Kid universe and their knowledge of media gives a lot of context. Also, they have great chemistry. Ah, that's very sweet. Thank
you. Smiley face
that's in a smiley face actually looks like the teeth have braces, like a smiley face with braces. It looks like Jay Wantage. I liked how you said that their knowledge of media because I like to believe I mean, there's a lot of great Cobra Kai content, other podcasts fantastic. There's a lot of great YouTube content fanmade Karate Kid and Cobra Kai YouTube content is fantastic. I like to think that let's talk Cobra Kai has these tie ins and we do these circle backs and switchbacks back to karate kid back to Cobra Kai of how our personal lives may intersect and intertwine with the Karate Kid and Cobra Kai universe.
Absolutely. Yeah, well said and I really do. Yeah, because we'll take a music video from the 80s and dissect it will take any and everything will take photos and explore eight photos and a full episode. And yeah, so you're absolutely right. We can explore any and everything and I like that too. It's the first time I've ever seen that mentioned that way so yeah, and our chemistry love hearing that. I believe it's true. We really banter well and and some of that chemistry carries on beyond this and we have tapped into other shows. as well as we're on that's a crime together co hosting. And of course, I likes to join me in the studio for various episodes of Let's Talk movies. Oh, yeah.
Let's talk movies. Jason dissects all kinds of great movies. I believe he just laid down nine out of the 10 planned episodes out in the 1980s. I had the pleasure of being on what about four of the four? Four of them? Yeah, so Jason has a different guest or co host on with each less talk movies, and I've had the pleasure of being on a few of them. So be sure to check out that's a crime and let's talk movies on just curious media. Yes. Hey, Jay wattage. Thanks so much for your support. And thanks for your review.
