Hire Jason Johnson
I’ve been watching a.m. Joy for months with the different hosts each week. Jason Johnson is the best host thus far! His calm demeanor makes for great discussion and his knowledge of history ties the puzzle pieces together. He makes the conversation flow by listening and responding better than anyone I’ve seen. I will continue to watch because Jason Johnson is hosting. More importantly I will be listening to this podcast.
What the devil’s balls...????
There’s nothing I despise more than a concept that should be infinitely easy in theory but virtually impossible in reality due to someone screwing up. It seriously puts me in a murderous mood. Which is why I’m going to murder your rating. WHY ARE THERE ONLY 2 episodes of this show but several of the others? Is this apples doing? It seems they’ve made me a target of theirs, intentionally or otherwise. Almost every operation of my phone that’s outside of day to day use has taken literally days! Connect phone to car to access media, transfer music from one iPhone to another, or to iPhone, upload video, download contacts....DAYS.
Now I’m trying to access a podcast, an operation worthy of only 2 mins of my WHOLE life has taken 60. So of course I checked out the other podcasts from MSNBC that only to find that THE ONLY PODCAST that is episode-anemic, apparently is the ONE I NEED TO ACCESS, and also to learn that the episode I wanted to access (Nov 22 2020 Thanksgiving episode, guest host Jason Johnson) is only one episode away from being shown. So instead of showing only 2 episodes, if you’d shown 3, I wouldn’t be blowing a vein right now.
So again if THIS is Apple’s shenanigans, MSNBC needs to understand why they aren’t showing all uploaded episodes to podcast consumers and demand they do. If this is MSNBCs error, FIX IT!
Time for a new show
The show is becoming redundant and inefficient, I’m afraid. It’s clear what they’re trying to do, but I don’t think it’s working. I used to listen to every episode but now I find myself skipping it altogether. This might be a good opportunity to find or create a new show. Joy’s moved to prime time, and the show is no more. Create a new show.
