Best podcast out there

renegadewhistle ,

The best podcast on the airwaves.

That simple!

Jah24a ,

Overrated and lame.

Loaded with too much sponsorship, the music is pure ear pollution, too many personal anecdotes that are unfunny, boring and borderline egotistical, in short this podcast is highly overrated and a waste of time compared to what else is out there...Russillo no one cares about your lame gym workouts, you’re a little drunk of your own success, and I find you increasingly obnoxious and arrogant.
