Interview With Member #183 Renaud Smith

1. How old are you and where do you live?

I live in Europe, on the boarder of France and Switzerland near Geneva.

 2. When did you become a member of TYT?

I don’t recall exactly but around 2009/2010.

 3. How do you consume the show?

I watch it on my work and home computers.

4. What field do you work in?

The Entertainment and Events Planning Industry.

 5.How would you describe TYT in 5 words or less?

A group of honest and reliable journalists.

 6. Do you have a favorite TYT moment?

Political shows, any of them.

 7. Who is your favorite co-host? Why?

Cenk, personality and honesty.

 8. What motivated you to take the extra step of becoming a paying member?

I wanted to support such a democratic approach to news, in the sense that no hidden secret lies behind their report, and I was furious at the mainstream media and all their lies. I believe TYT can have an impact on history, I mean the big picture!

 9. Are you surprised that the The Young Turks has grown into a multiplatform network of multiple channels?

That’s the best Internet friendly strategy.

 10. Cenk often talks about the TYT brand as “truth telling.” What does this mean to you as a member?

Paramount, as the symbol of what TYT means that no beating around the bush will happen. Direct facts, no bullshit.

 11. Which TYT host would you get coffee with? Which one would you go to the bar with? Who would you have dinner with? 

Coffee– Jesus

Bar– Ben

Dinner– Kasparian

12. If you were a co-host on the show, which story would you cover? Why?

The damage done by America’s Foreign Policies.

 13. Have you ever communicated with other TYT fans? If so, how?

No, other than comments on YouTube pages.

14. Has the show convinced you to change your position on a particular issue?

It has reinforced my thoughts that mainstream medias are not to be trusted.

 15. Have you ever referred membership to anyone? If so, what did you say?

Yes, since I joined, I have never stopped telling people around me about TYT, and my pride in supporting such a cool and interesting Crew, (very much so with the Wolfpack subject).

Interview With Member #81 John Patrick Bowles

1. How old are you and what state do you live in?

I’m 44 and live in Glacier, Washington, right next to Mt. Baker. However, I grew up in the woodsy knolls of north-central Connecticut (Somers), went to university at UVM in Burlington, VT, and lived in Burlington for twenty-five years before moving west to Jackson Hole last winter and then to Glacier just a few months ago.

2. When did you become a member of TYT?

I think I pulled the trigger on membership sometime in 07. Not entirely sure.

3. How do you consume the show?

Whatever suits my fancy, which is a great thing about TYT. I’ll listen to the podcast if I am moving around, and when I’m at home I’ll either stream or download the video.

4. What field do you work in?

Media/publishing; I’m the Copy Chief at SNOWBOARDER Magazine.

5. How would you describe TYT in 5 words or less?

Totally Biting My Thought Process.

6. Do you have a favorite TYT moment?

Too many to really pick one. I am quite fond of Ben’s dad’s “Wrong again, Bob” story, though. Novak was such a prick.

7. Who is your favorite co-host? Why?

I’m assuming this excludes Jilly and Ana. Aside from those two fantastic broads, I’d definitely say Ben, as he has great chemistry with Cenk and Ana, is super quick-witted, and has a snarky sense of humor that I dig.

8. What motivated you to take the extra step of becoming a paying member?

I needed more TYT than the old 30-minute free podcast that I could snag on iTunes.

9. Are you surprised that the The Young Turks has grown into a multiplatform network of multiple channels?

Not in the slightest.

10. Cenk often talks about the TYT brand as “truth telling.” What does this mean to you as a member?

It means I can trust Cenk and the rest of the crew to not spin anything.

11.) Which TYT host would you get coffee with? Which one would you go to the bar with? Who would you have dinner with?

Coffee? Ana. Bar? Iadarola. Dinner? Cenk.

12. If you were a co-host on the show, which story would you cover? Why?

I would focus on fighting organized (and especially fundamentalist) religion. I have a very short fuse when it comes to that nonsense. Christianity, Islam, Judaism, LDS, Scientology (argh), etc., etc.

13. Have you ever communicated with other TYT fans? If so, how?

Yes, through Facebook.

14. Has the show convinced you to change your position on a particular issue?

I can’t recall. I tend to be pretty much in lockstep with most of Cenk’s positions.

15. Have you ever referred membership to anyone? If so, what did you say?

Yes.
