One of the best!

Their rapport is so enjoyable that sometimes I listen to them talking about shows I don’t care about and will never watch. Update: still the best podcast the Ringer has!

Trump

I’m a big fan and have listened about the past 6 years. But the allusions to Trump now 9 months in are getting old. You do know Biden is President and he and his handlers own all this? Maybe start to give Biden the credit he deserves for today’s business environment, continuing Covid fatalities, Afghanistan, inflation, supply shortages, etc. or just leave politics out of an entertainment podcast.

Great rapport but Andy is insufferable

I live hearing old friends catch up- but Andy has made this very difficult to listen to. Just too smug- it drips from my headphones.

Your mileage may vary.
