Informative and entertaining

Zac always has great info, realistic takes, and is hilarious. He’s the best Browns podcaster by a mile.

Wow…

My favorite Browns podcast… but starting the show off with a pro-abortion advertisement makes me want to puke.

Less solo pods

The post game edition of the podcast with Zac and Jason is probably the podcast I look forward to the most out of everything in my library. It serves as a follow up to my celebration after a win or therapy after a loss.

The only thing I don’t like are the solo podcasts. Each mid-week podcast should be a crossover with the opponent’s beat writer. If that’s not available, Jason should be a part of these because one person talking for 30 straight minutes is not ideal for the listener (or Zac, himself).
