Great topics and discussions! (If you can put up with the host)

I really enjoy the conversations that are had and the guests that come are always top notch! Jon is very cynical and judgmental in a way that makes the listener feel alienated, but he kinda makes up for it by the breadth of knowledge he has. I just wish he didn’t feel the need to remind the listener and interrupt his guests to let them know that

A ghost of what it once was

Please fire the guy and get someone who actually talks about pop music. If I wanted a straight out of touch guy to talk to me about pop music I would ask my dad about Taylor Swift

Ungrateful

All of the people on this podcast sound jaded and faded and tired. I consider it less reviewing and critiquing- mostly complaining and poking fun at everything they particularly don’t have exposure to.... and for that, I can’t take it too seriously. Sounds like TMZ.
