Joe K needs more time off

His tone, attitude & rants are beyond annoying.

Get my Squawk hit each day

Just enough Joe, “Beck”, and Sorkin to keep me tuned in to the news of the day and get a few laughs from their casual banter. Look forward to listening on my commute home every day.

Refreshing

Great discourse and variety of opinions. Hosts are each great journalists, and I appreciate their willingness to try to understand views different from their own. They don’t always have all the answers, nor do they pretend to. Others could learn from them.
