Marc Spears

Great podcast, but if Marc Spears comes on it’s going to be 95% him talking, 5% of Brian and the other guest. On the episode that came out today Kevin Pelton said 2 sentences in over 20 minutes. Just nothing interesting, just rambling nonsense

Bontemps the worst

Remove bontemps from the cast and you’ll be at least four stars
