Entertaining but audio clips poorly timed

In recent episodes, the clips of music are really poorly timed and you can’t even hear them because people are talking over them. Your older episodes did a great job with this. Also, it's comical to listen to old episodes and hear them while about how bad 2017 and 2018 were after finishing 2020.

Very Good

Just listened to their review of the just turned 20 KidA by Radiohead and enjoyed it very much. Good analysis but not boring or overdone.

Mac Miller

Only giving this 1 star because I can’t give it 0.

Terrible episode. You skip over Faces (2014), entirely; the most clear and pivotal shift in his artistry. Limited discussion of Swimming.

No mention of Mac putting on Chance the Rapper. No mention of his relationship with ScHoolboy Q and the rest of TDE. These guys spent more time linking Mac to Macklemore?????

The host of this podcast is a total narcissist who is way more concerned about plugging himself and his previous interviews than actually discussing Mac as an artist. What a “me” guy.

What a waste of 41 minutes.

Boooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!
