Can’t even get a guy’s name right?

On this podcast they mentioned 2020 Presidential candidate Andrew Yang but they kept calling him Andrew Young. It seemed like they were mispronouncing his name on purpose as a joke no one got but themselves. Regardless they’re supposed to be journalists. Please do some basic research, like learn the persons name you’re talking about before saying it.
