Toronto Mike'd Critically Reviewed by Media Students: Part Two
Last month, I made the trek to Oshawa to speak with media students at Durham College. This class was given an assignment to critically review an episode of Toronto Mike'd. They were allowed to choose any episode they pleased.
I was given the opportunity to read these critiques, which I found fascinating. There was much praise, but I naturally focused on the negative. In a tweet storm yesterday afternoon, I shared some of what I read. That was part one. Today I received the rest of the assignments, so I present to you part two.
This student enjoyed my "crispy mid voice".— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 5, 2018
I'm just honoured I was lumped in with Roger Ashby as a "really talented R.J." pic.twitter.com/ArkfEDYhCp
Students were allowed to choose the episode they were to review, and I find it rather odd someone chose episode 400, which was just me playing clips from listeners. pic.twitter.com/p2d37lr29j— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 5, 2018

Case in point, this student disliked the @stustone episode for the exact reasons I enjoyed it so much.
"too much content being covered." pic.twitter.com/vlqHpC41HO
I'm really taking this piece of feedback to heart.— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 5, 2018

This critique of @6ixJamar's episode made me LOL because they believe the CHUM morning show was called "Marilyn and Dennis".— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 5, 2018
Makes you wonder why they didn't just go out and hire a Dennis. pic.twitter.com/yHRfMo2uMG
This might be the most shocking critique I've read these past two days.— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 5, 2018
This is from @retrontario's last appearance. "I'm personally just not interested in the conversational tone."
It's very difficult to converse with someone without that tone! Where do I go from here? pic.twitter.com/b3JEmHjhgZ
I'd like to take back something in that last tweet. This is the most shocking critique I've read.— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 5, 2018
How could anyone find @leeharveyosmond boring?
Tom Wilson might be the most interesting man in the world!
