Cubs Talk - must listen

Everything about this pod is great. Love the team and Cap. Hate to single out one guy buy Gordon W is killing this podcast. I’m all for balancing out opinions for interesting conversation but it’s like he’s depressed cardinals fan and having tantrums on the pod. You can do better.

Kaapow! ,

Getting Bored

The current format here seems to be: find something Kap and Gordon disagree on then repeatyell their differing opinions for 15 minutes. I’ve started listening to their opening arguments then turning it down until it sounds like they’ve moved on to something else. I like the content in general but the debates are getting tedious.

Please Fix The Audio Quality

Kap sounds like he’s on speakerphone in a janitor’s closet while Gordon sounds like he’s taking a nail file to his earbuds mic. I know times are tough, but can NBC not afford a couple hundred bucks to get these guys some decent equipment? Oh, and Kap is a meathead.
