Alan Robles is better read, not seen.
Because he’s not the most pleasant person to have around.
Ask his Twitter account—it describes him as “somewhat acerbic.” [See: Twitter account of Alan Robles]
But that doesn’t matter too much to his more than 2,000 followers on Twitter. It doesn’t matter to me either.
Because he’s funny.
Warm and cuddly too. Or at least sometimes—and I’ve seen that side of him.
Unfortunately, you’ll find none of that warmth in this one-minute (or so) podcast describing the political pitfalls of our former President Joseph “Erap” Estrada.
And this podcast marks my first supposedly serious foray into podcasting in a show which I now would like to call, Is That On? That’s because the subject uttered those very words when I suddenly pulled out my Zoom H1 to record our conversation over hot pizza and cold beer. [See: The Zoom H1]
Enough about that: So is anyone interested in being my guest for the second show? (I’m buying beer. Well…probably.)
