Fabulous

Larry Wilmore is a renaissance man. Somehow, he remains humble. This podcast has featured guests from all over the social/political landscape, from Ben Shapiro to Al Roker, and Mr. Wilmore somehow remains affable, inquisitive, and compassionate during every interview. We need him.

Time

You have a great show. My complaint is I only have a 30 minute drive to work. When you take up so much of that time with a commercial talking about your other show on peacock, makes me not want to listen to your show. So 5 minutes in I have to delete the episode and move on.
