Philip Tripi ,

Love the banter and discussions

Just ease off the heavy politics and anti police (Ian) lol

Valley Skin 818 ,

Wend down hill since the early days.

Ian is conceded he got better and went back to being annoying and closed minded. Pat was always interesting. Best shows when was gone but now even Pat has gone from games, wrestling, movies and other entertainment to talking about how much he hates anyone he doesn’t agree with politically. It sounds like he is mad at the world and a grumpy old man yelling at the sky. This was a podcast about one thing now there’s a agenda. Uninformed politics makes me think Pats books are uninformed.

oantera man ,

Great podcast, must listen

Been listening since the beginning. Awesome !
