Audio

Today’s episode (28 Jul 2020) had some audio behind the scenes. You could hear the host talking to each other as if they were off air. Also, the ad volume seems to be louder than the episode and have to keep turning it down/skip ahead.

Off topic

I listened to the first take podcast all the time because of the sports debates... till they stopped talking about sports. All it is now is politics and im tired of listening to it when i want to hear about sports. If you want to talk about what you believe politically then get a show on CNN not ESPN a sports channel

Too political

Been listening for years but I unsubscribed, tired of the President Trump bashing and Max downing the South at every turn.
