Slow. Down.

Really good show, but man, the host talks very fast and stumbles/mumbles over his own words.

JPAllDay5573 ,

Stop laughing at your own “jokes” at the end of your Rock Auto ad reads! They aren’t funny and you are starting to become unlistenable!

Chahalt ,

Couldn’t be more boring

It’s like listening to a high school biologist dissect a frog.
