The Roundtable

Love the show. Love the idea. But please please please stop using the word “like” incessantly through the conversation. Either edit it out or dial it back. It cheapens what is a fun dynamic. I know it’s how the kids speak but it’s bad for this medium.

Donaldson Episode

I’m sorry your Episode on Donaldson was garbage. I’m not a Yankees fan or even a Donaldson fan. Every word in the dictionary can’t be a racist word. Who can keep up with them. Now you can’t call someone Jackie?
