I love Sam!

Huge IBAM fan here— I’m enjoying this, but agree with the reviews that Vulture editors aren’t the most fascinating guests. Also very much missing Aunt Betty and the best thing that happened this week! Don’t need to recreate those, of course, but just missing the human touch a bit. I hope Sam will find his groove soon and this will occupy the very special place in my heart that IBAM did.

I’m just not that into it as I want to be

I’m a huge fan of Sam and so far am sorely disappointed in Into It. Some of the content has been very good but I dislike the Vulture cohosts. Also as others have mentioned the sound effects are super annoying.

Question

I don’t understand- what do you mean Vulture.

San had a shoe on the radio. That was quite good. This not
