BSt Bully ,

Great show BUT

I have stopped listening show when Elliott Friedman is the guest. He keeps on doing all other things while talking to Jeff and most of all of us listeners. The various background noises like drinking water from plastic bottle, typing sms with keyboard sound on, making food on a microwave oven (ding sound) etc. are disturbing and freaking annoying!
