Not impressed

These episodes are painful to get through at this point. The production quality is flat out terrible and the NY Post shows all sound the same! Can we have some relevancy introduced to the show? Why are all the guests people that were in the league 40 years ago talking about irrelevant things? Just not enjoyable to listen to…
