Was good

This podcast was so great when it was Tom and Jim telling Phoenix stories with really great guests who had accomplished real things. Now it's a quick plug about the band and 20 minutes of live music to an empty room. The video component changed the interviews. Now everyone is aware of themselves.

Jim And Them Scum (Rick) ,

Kinda sad actually

They used to be a great comedy show, but now all they do is ruin other podcast's 10 Year anniversaries. It's pretty messed up that the sabotaged Jim and Them 's livestream.
