Loyal “Leila Wednesday” listener
I’ve enjoyed listening to Dan for two decades, but feel he’s always been at his best with a cohost. Leila Rahimi has been that perfect cohost for him (plus she was great on “The King of Queens ;) Was happy for her but selfishly disappointed when she got her new gig, leaving Dan solo four days a week. But it’s fun to hear them recapture that spark every Wednesday.
Fun show when they talk sports
When these two talk sports, they’re an enjoyable listen.
They don’t talk about sports very often, though.
I don’t think Bernstein should be allowed to take days off anymore. I’m still feeling different after Rongey called himself “Daddy”. I’ve showered twice today. This is terrible.
