Great Show

Real conversations and great interviews. It’s refreshing that Jason has such a great knowledge and background in sports. Also doesn’t hurt that he grew up a Mets fan and has had his (Straw) and my (HoJo) favorite players ever on the show, Thanks for doing it! Keep up the great work! God bless!
