Great content but a bit too childish

I work for one of oldest organizations in cannabis advocacy and it’s frustrating to have serious guests constantly interrupted by “weed” jokes and the hosts attempts to alternatively be either the wittiest or smartest person in the room. Yes, I understand you’re trying to entertain AND inform but there are serious policy, health, and investment related issues still unsettled and we will prevail if we accept that those issues require adult conversation. And please stop with the childish concerns over “pissing off” operators and entrepreneurs when asking hard questions. It’s transparent, you’re an agency and you want clients; But you are also a respected agency that does good work, so you don’t need to worry about pissing off the cool mean girls in the room by asking the same honest questions investors and analysts would ask of public and or venture funded companies in other industries. Would you ask Jim Cramer or Warren Buffet to not “name names” out of fear of upsetting the operators of a business they were commenting on?
