I never write a review

This format has changed drastically. I wish you would have been very upfront with your listeners.

….

Is AJ and Rene ever coming back? If not maybe change the name of the podcast and the thumbnail. AJ isn’t and hasn’t been on it sooo why is he still in the picture? Waiting and hoping they come back and this goes back to the way it was. And if not it would be nice to know… if there is no chance then I’m out
