Will Welch or skip

I loved it with Will, but when he’s not on I don’t even bother listening anymore. It just feels like I’m eavesdropping on high schoolers.

Bring Back Will

The podcast is excellent when Will Welch is on. Don’t get me wrong, Sam, Rachel, and Noah are great but there tends to be the vibe that Noah doesn’t really want to lead the podcast when Will isn’t there seems like he wants to get it over with. If Noah could be a little more enthusiastic about having listeners and put out regular releases it would be five stars.
