Constructive Feedback

I really enjoy Kroyler’s take on just about everything and an occasional attempt at a joke by Andrew, but perhaps you could do a little less Andrew and a little more Kroyler since that is what drives the show. Thanks for your consideration! Do that and I’ll give you 5 stars next time

Today’s episode was so dumb.

Andrew is intolerable.
