Used to Lovett

This has been my favorite podcast for quite some time but the recent format changes keep pushing it down my list...I am really missing "OK Stop", even though showing video clips in an audio medium seems counter-intuitive. What really made that work was the interaction between the guests, another element I am missing. Please have more than two people on, and have them on the whole time. It's what set this podcast apart from other formats. It seems like you are trying to resemble a nightly talkshow format more closely, but that to me feels like the podcast giving up what made it unique. This btw also included rather over-the-top,quizzes including audience members. I hope you return to what made your podcast special in the first place! Late Night with Seth Meyers already exists...

I’d lovett to give it a 5 - haha

It’s great really - funny and informative. In particular, OK Stop keeps me laughing The Rant Wheel and some of the other games are great as well. But there are some excesses (re-enactment) and weaker games. But the main reason I give this podcast 4 stars instead of 5 is that the quality of the panel varies significantly - Some panelists are smart, incisive, and adept with their quips and hot takes. Others fall flatter, and some add very little to the episode. Lovett is always great. Hard not to ‘love’ the lil guy.
