Nosedive since RC left

Redid review from 1 to 3. Time to bring Rob Carlin back! Jordan and Nick are horrible. It seems like it is just JJ and Nick now and that is how it should be. More JJ and Alan May. Nick needs to figure out his audio, JJ is always clear and it seems like Nick is in his car.

Sooooo……

It’s been 2 months….not like anything has happened. Is it so hard to update the podcast???

Bring Rob back

The caps state sponsored media is getting to be as bad as Kuzy. No one cares that there is a guy on the production staff that is a Sabres fan. Nick is god awful with his forced jokes. This podcast was great when it was May, Carlin, JJ and Tarik.
