Love this pod!

JR does a great job on this show.

Domo Arigaro 12180 ,

So many lies

Jim is almost as FAT as his lies.

TopherJames5 ,

Used to be enjoyable

This pod used to be super enjoyable but with Paul’s mediocrity and zero charisma now hosting, combined with JR’s griping, it has made this show a weekly skip
