Please Get a new producer

I love Brian, Jackie, and Tim together. I think it makes for a good trio, but Andrew Han gets an F. Never have I once ever cared about a producer on any podcast I listen to, but the “hello, no one is available to take your call” and terrible music makes me want to puke. Plus, the sound quality is poor and they talk over each other. It just seems like a low-rent Podcast compared to competitors like the Ringer, and even the other NBA podcasts in the ESPN wing such as the Lowe Post. This can be fixed, and the basics are there too ok make it a go-to pod. Just get a new producer and stop making it seem like a DIY pod! Until Han is either replaced/ the production quality improves I will not be a listener

“I didn’t come here for politics”

The people that are upset are hilarious. If they were swinging from your side of the fence you would be all ears but since it’s someone else’s perspective you can’t even get through a pod without commenting. Hypocritical at its finest. Please grow up, educate yourself and keep an open mind every once in a while.
