John and Mario
This pod is laid back and quietly brilliant.
If I just bet against anything Mario said in the last year I’d be up millions
Now you guys are political?
You guys really gotta get Mario off your team. Not only is he a trash analyst but he’s so left leaning. You’re just crushing half your viewership. Republicans buy shoes too. I will no longer be listening to your podcasts till Mario is gone. He’s arrogant and has terrible takes...gotta go. Can’t be the only one feeling this after the last few months of this podcast
