‘A problem shared is a problem halved.’ - Craig the Dinosaur
No matter how things seem, everybody has their hangups. Why, I’ve got a bunch ranging from ‘Brendan doesn’t pay enough’ to ‘Why am I always late?’. And then, of course, sometimes life just throws you a curveball that’s a little hard to catch.
At Ate Bit we have each other to rely on; to pick each other up when one of us is a little down. It’s what friends do, and we wanted to open it up to you: the Ate Bit Nation.
If you have a problem that needs fixing and want to get some advice from the THG crew on how to handle it, write in. Each week we want to help one of our listeners out with something that they’re struggling with.
I’ll give you a taste:
Q: “How do I be a better boss?” from Brendan [last name withheld].
A: Treat your employees with dignity and respect and stop getting mad at Saleem for being late every week.
Q: “How do I get good at Tekken?” from Ally [last name withheld].
A: Tekken is the sort of game you just need to dive head-first into. Pick one character, youtube some of their juggles and watch some competitive play to see how they do what they do, then try and mimic it. Korean back dash is the key. Stop getting mad at Saleem for being late.
Q: “I’m trying to find a pet that’s suitable to my home. I have a house in Sydney.” from Reece [last name withheld].
A: Well seeing as you own a house in Sydney I’m assuming that you’re ‘old money’. Get a dog, they’re always happy to see you. Personal favourite of mine are Pugs but I did once get accosted for walking a pug. “Get a real dog” was what the guy yelled at me. Stop getting mad at Saleem for being late Reece.
If you want to write in, please do me a solid and consider the following:
There’s no such thing as a stupid question. If you’re struggling with it then it’s likely that someone else out there is too.
There’s no problem too big or small. Doesn’t matter what the problem is, if you want some advice then we want to help.
‘Discretion’ is the name of the game. If you have a question but don’t want your name read out on the air then let us know in the email, or sign your email with a baller alias and we’ll just go ahead and use that instead.
Nobody likes waiting on the line. We’ll send you a response email confirming that we’re going to tackle your issue (and give you the release date of the episode). This is a new initiative so we don’t know just how many emails to expect. If you don’t hear from us right away, please accept our apologies. If it seems like a problem that can’t wait we’ll try and work something out for you.
Ready to write? Fantastic! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include “ABC” in the subject line.
We hope to hear from you soon folks.
