The tone hasn't changed at all, and Rob Regish has provided a ton of insight outside of the blueprint. If you feel when he is on that its all about selling more copies of the blueprint, then we are listening to different shows.
There is no free lunch - if you want SHR to be free then you have to be willing to have commercials and sponsors like Rob. I think they manage that balance quite well.
Rob and Carl, I think the show is better than ever. The only thing I would change in a perfect world is to ask some of your sponsors to tone down some of the adds - the loud guitar riffs and some dude shouting about a prohormone that *****s AAS is a bit annoying. If it was a bit classier and less in your face it would make it much easier to listen though. Minor complaint tho.
BPPH is my favorite segment. Casual Fridays my least fav.

I believe the guy was an ex car salesman. Carl should have the actual R&D member on the show, not some executive who doesnt have a clue about his own products. Notice how Carl "pushes him along " through the entire interview?Originally Posted by firefighterma

So Hes not a science guy. I could understand why you feel that way.
Ageforce rep, Lets patch up those mistakes and stop going oral.

I have been listening to the show for over a year now and I think it has provided me with a wealth of information. I think Carl is doing a lot of good for the health of his listeners on an individual basis as well as keeping us up to date on what is going on in the regulatory and medical services industry. Rob and Brooks are my favorite guests as well. The only shows I skip through are the ones where advertisers are interviewed for an hour at a time pimping their products. I don't mind the commercials.
In recent weeks however I have heard Carl make several brief and elusive comments about this life threatening condition he has worked himself into caused by weight lifting, but I have not heard him come right out and make an announcement telling us what his condition is - if he did, then i missed it. I don't understand how he can keep his medical condition a quasi secret when he is on the air everyday telling all of us the benefits of weight lifting. This seems contradictory.
Additionally in recent weeks I have heard numerous comments about how he hasn't been working out on a regular basis anymore and how he doesn't have time to do this or time to do that, but he mentioned he only spends an hour a day preparing for his two hour radio show. I guess what I want to ask is, is Carl losing his $hit?
08-24-2012, 03:22 PM
Seriously, what makes you think Carl has an obligation to share every part of his life? If and when he wants to talk about something, I'm sure he will! Do you want to let everyone know every detail about your life?
08-24-2012, 03:46 PM
I've got to agree with Daniel. On one hand you reverse Carl with what he's offered and what you've taken away from it and then spend the next paragraph basically bashing him and then go on to say is Carl losing his S%&T. But you listen and, you have received what you was a wealth of information...well, which is it? Look, I know Carl personally and have for years. If you are taking a "wealth" of information from the show, then why does his prep time, or even lack thereof, mean anything? What I see here is a poor attempt at bashing someone.
08-24-2012, 08:36 PM
You both appear delusional.
I am not holding myself out over the airwaves prophesying the benefits of weightlifting as Carl is, so no I don't share every detail of my life. Carl in his chosen path pushes the benefits of weightlifting and he certainly shares many minute and personal details of his personal life, so if he is going to start making statements about a "life threatening" condition he has brought on by the very activity he preaches about on a daily basis, he should either come clean with us like his does with his other personal issues, or keep these elusive facts to himself until he is either ready to talk or put it behind him, because right now I cant help but question this as disingenuous behavior. His show prep time means nothing to me, and I realize he has some family issues going on, but when I hear repeated complaints about how he hasn't been working out, and he is short in time, I was surprised when I heard him say prep time was 45 minutes per show. It's like going to church on Sunday and listening to the priest talk about all of the cardinal sins he commits during the week. It doesn't hurt to stop and ask if the the wheels are coming off the cart. Otherwise you're only doing yourself a disservice. In any case I wish Carl well. So you two need to get off of your defensive high horse and actually think about what I wrote and put two and two together.
08-25-2012, 08:29 AM
I've never heard that he preps only 45 minutes per show. If so, it's working well! I am sure he spends a lot more time doing research so he can stay informed (and find / maintain contracts and relationships with advertisers, and find / schedule guests, and so on...).
I think your post, Pocono, would have been received better if you had asked a question. Carl recently said that he has to be careful revealing whatever is happening to him and I take him at his word. Might you be satisfied if he simply said that whatever is happening with him does not change his exercise suggestions for the rest of us? He almost said as much by saying that his condition is inherited. He also said recently that he would talk more about his experience in the future, possibly after his full recovery.

Back to the original post topic - I don;t think the tone of the show has changed in the year I have been listening and I have gone back and listened to archives as well they all sound the same to me. And I don't mind the commercials. I have purchased from several or his sponsors all money well spent. If it became a listener funded show I would be okay with that. There is too much good info to miss out on.
08-27-2012, 11:00 AM
I don't feel I'm delusional but, I did feel that your post was a personal attack. That's why I posted in the first place. I'm not on any defensive high horse. Carl is readily accessible. If the need to know is that big of a deal, simply message him and ask and he can, Carl, determine if he chooses to share any info with you.

You've long answered any questions I would have, trust me. When you're done talking out of both sides of your mouth, let everyone know. Simple, you were bashing Carl,end of report. I called you on it. From here, if you want the last word, it's yours.

I still enjoy the Power Hour very much. Quite frankly, I'm surprised by how often in the short lifetime of the Power Hour Rob has repeated an idea that I either forgot or did not hear completely. This is largely due to the way in which I usually listen (at work, attention not always dedicated to the podcast). I usually play the Power Hour episodes twice, as I do with Adel Moussa's, and I still miss and forget stuff!

Any company that puts creatine in a patch is suspect to me. Sorry; just sayin....
10-03-2012, 10:55 PM
Pocono, I couldn't help but tell you I totally agree with how you addressed your concerns. In addition you articulated all your points well. At no time did I feel you attacked Carl in any way! Some people just need to re read things but even then it won't matter. You can't shake a closed hand/fist.

The show seems to be running stagnant as of lately to some but in all honesty I don't get tired of hearing Brooks and Rob on the show, I would like to hear more of the likes of Vince Andrich, Mike Mahler and Matt Cahill on it again...

I think it is hard to find a perfect balance of show content that everyone always likes. I am more science minded and love the new research interviews and Adel's time. I know the Blueprint Power Hours is very popular but I sometimes miss those. Overall there is not another radio show I have found that I enjoy more.

I also try to remain as objective as possible, in terms of supp recommendations, and keeping a healthy balance between those and training/dietary related questions. For example, most of my supp recommendations will include a brand name AND the equivalent active ingredient. If I'm talking about GammaGH for example (a non-SHR sponsor company btw), I'll also cite the fact it's simply HPLC/HPCS 100% pure GABA. I often go further than that, like items you'll find at your local grocery store...
One BP Tip of The Day I recommended a VERY common herbal blend inclusive of Tumeric-Curcumin/Fenugreek and 8 other bodybuilding super-herbs. It's likely in the spice aisle of your local grocery store today. And even used at 2g/day, it'll run you a whopping $.21cents/day to realize some pretty cool benefits.
Anyway, I appreciate everyone's comments here both positive and negative. I'll use them to continue to refine the Power Hour, because it's YOUR show - and I want to give you the BEST possible answers to whatever question it is that you have...

Started listening to the show again, and I would like to revise my previously-stated opinion. The show comes across as much more positive now, and I think this meshes with the goal of reaching super-humanity.
Thanks Carl and Alisa.
