Good Content Being Overshadowed by Poor Quality and Rants

I've always liked AJ. I followed him in NYC, on E!, on Stern, and when he popped up to do High Stakes Poker. I caught him a couple times on drive time radio here in L.A. but didn't know he had a podcast until last year when I heard him on another one (Dennis Miller?). Anyway, I've been listening to him regularly over the past year and as much as I like AJ, the content really suffers due to horrible audio and his rants. I agree with most of his politics but it gets to be a bit much when he'll tell you for three successive shows that he has to get something off his chest really quick and then he'll waste half a show talking about Trump. I don't need that analysis on this podcast. I can get that in so many places.

I like AJ because of the knowledge and understanding of Hollywood and those who show one side of themself while hiding another. When AJ sticks to that, he is impossible to top. He just needs to do more of that. I get the Patreon, but when you toss that out at everyone as the place to be to get what people know you for, it's kind of weaksauce. Especially now that there are three commercials leading into every podcast. Oh and fix the audio. It's not just you visiting the east coast. Whatever shelter you are in this month is pretty bad too.

Terrible Audio

Very disappointing audio. The show is 20 minutes long and ten minutes A.J. spends tell you to subscribe to patron. Please let this show be more professional. Has potential if the issues are addressed.
