DJ Paine ,

This show needs to be more popular!

The GOOD: Jack is a great host of a brilliantly formatted show with some insightful guests...
The BAD: too many unnecessary swearing for a show marked "CLEAN" in iTunes. I would like to let my kids listen....
The UGLY: The two Geelong guests DJ Paine and Jono Pech are pretty hard on the eyes....

Krusedog ,

It is what it is

And it’s never not what it is

Hot Takes For All
