Good content - terrible humor
I really love the information presented in their intro topics and the interviews are typically fantastic. However, the banter and jokes are groan worthy. I would prefer to just hear the interviews and skip past the rip-off segments are terrible humor.
You guys report on your friends in the industry a lot, which makes sense. Don’t forget about the rest of the country!
Love the podcast thank you.
