Charles “Chuckles” Bryant

Fact: Chuck is short for Chuckles, not a nickname for Charles as many may think.

The insight into SYSK topics presented by Josh and Chuck is great but listening to Chuckles Bryant chuckle every episode is impossible not to make you smile.

Safi sana! ,

Good topics...mediocre delivery

These two gents seem to feel privileged enough that they don’t need to get all facts right nor do impeccable research nor even sound authoritative sometimes. I’ve learned interesting things and found some topics fascinating; but their sometimes lackadaisical behavior finally made me stop subscribing.
