Good show, upload sooner please

Please upload the show sooner, live on the west coast and listen to this pod as if it were my morning radio. Cause the sports talk out here sucks, also who cares about the Canucks. Please please please upload sooner, it’s 930 pacific so 1230 eastern. Really should not take you until 1230 eastern to upload the morning radio show. Also I agree with the more baseball comment. Other than that great show
